  1. Psst… nitpicking spelling alert… “My boyfriend in college road”- rode, surely?

    Sorry… it grated… 🙂

  2. I’m guessing that Melissa was attracted to motorcycle racing because somebody used some facsimile of the word “no” when she began her interest, and she (conscious or subconscious) took it on as a personal challenge; being of strong mind and will, who can excel in whatever she puts her mind to, being the super smart and capable woman she is. Probably traits she learned from her awesome dad.

  3. Im guessing that somebody used some facsimile of the word “no” when Melissa expressed her interest in motorcycles, and she is of very strong mind and will and took up the sport as a challenge to herself (consciously or subconsciously); being extremely smart and talented and capable of doing whatever she sets her mind to. A trait Probably shaped by a great dad, and awesome older brothers ; )
