Find out how this woman fell in love with two-wheeled adventure and then got her husband to ride.
I am finally coming into my own as a rider, a woman who has found a home in the road, and an independent spirit. I am happily married, but within that marriage I’ve gained a sense of independence that I never dreamed possible.

Straight roads are fine if you are in a car. You can go fast on straight roads, and probably do, since they tend to be a bit on the boring side. Straight roads are for getting you from one place to another. Curvy roads, on the other hand, can be an exciting part of the journey. As a motorcyclist, curvy roads are an enjoyment in traveling.
