 Tell us about your riding.

Commute to work, mostly on a 50cc scooter now.  Pleasure riding.  But mostly, long distance touring, like coast to coast alone.

What advice do you have for women who ride or want to ride a motorcycle?

Get on two wheels and ride, ride, and ride some more so you can get so tired and sleep at night.

Coast to coast alone.  (Check out her blog for the story.)

Do you belong to any motorcycle groups?

I do not belong to any one. I am a member and ride with the Latin American Motorcycle Association. This is our International site, we are the largest motorcycle association in the world.

Do you have a favorite riding story?

Yes, read about it here in my blog. (Check out the pictures too!)  I have so many wonderful riding stories, but this one is my favorite because it involves the animals.

  1. We most certainly are diverse and have many talents! It is what I love most about motorcycling! There is a true sisterhood of riders.
