I bought Sonny Barger’s book “Let’s Ride” after Biker Chick News and The Many Thoughts of HarleyGirl recommended reading it. Thanks ladies! When it arrived I was in the middle of several other books that I wanted to finish before giving my attention to Barger’s book. Let’s Ride This week I finally began reading the book and […]
One goal completed!
At today’s class the weather was again very cool, rainy, and windy. Thankfully the rain stopped after an hour or two. Most of the skills that we would be learning today were the skills we would be tested on at the end of the class. We drove around the perimeter to experience riding over 2 x 4s […]
I’ve Been Bitten by the Motorcycle Bug!
I’ve been bitten by the motorcycle bug! Oh my gosh! I learned to ride today and spent five hours on a motorcycle in the rain!

11 Hours and Counting

Sign-up for class: Check. Helmet: Check.
Sign-up for class: Check. Helmet: Check. I needed a helmet for my motorcycle basic skills class so my hubby took me shopping and I found one! I learned a lot during the process. Let me tell you. First of all, I found out that my hair does not do well when I put on and take […]
What’s Wrong with this Picture?
What’s Wrong with this Picture? I am a newbie to all things motorcycle, yet even I know that helmet is on wrong! It did get me thinking about taking time to get experience and talk with people in the know. My class is still over a month away, but any chance I get I glean […]
Times have changed, have you?
Thankfully times have changed, have you? My husband started teaching me how to ride about 30 years ago. The timing wasn’t right for me to get a license, we ended up moving and sold the bike. Not to mention back in the 70s only “those” women rode motorcycles! Times have changed, have you? Now that […]
