Someone once told me “Pick a job you love to do so you never have to work a day in your life.” Six years ago I was a music instructor with a passion for motorcycling. Motorcycling has been in my family for four generations, so it was no surprise when I started riding my own two-wheeler at the age of four. I started on a Suzuki JR 50 and it was not long before I wanted it to go faster. Next was a Suzuki DS 80 then a Honda 250 Dual Sport, and anything with two-wheels.
Being fortunate enough to come from a motorcycling family there was and is no shortage of motorcycles. I now ride a Honda 700 Shadow, , Honda Pacific Coast 800, Suzuki SV650S, Suzuki TL1000S, and a BMW R1100GS.
My riding experience includes motorcross (when I was younger), day to day commuting, as well as some longer adventures. My longest day was spent on the SV650S, 720 miles from North Carolina to Pensacola, Florida. Making it a round trip from home of 2,575 Miles in 11 days.
My annual miles total approximately 18,000. In spring of 2001 I appeared on the cover of Woman Rider Magazine. I road and reviewed the new Ducati Monster 600 Metallic. As often as possible I try to ride any bike I can. I have had the opportunity to ride many other makes and models.
Motorcycling is so much fun it is hard not to take it for granted and I do not. Motorcycle safety is very important to me and rightfully so. I practice on each of the bikes I ride working on my stopping, swerving, cornering and so on. I stay up on and informed of the latest and greatest and treat myself well to good riding gear. “The more you know, the better it gets!”
