Motorcycle Attorney Russ Brown: It’s so exciting to see so many more women get out and enjoying the open road! Two wheels, three wheels whatever twist your grip, it’s all good in my book.
I bought my first Harley in my early 20’s and back then people wouldn’t even talk to me because I was the Harley girl :o.
Funny how judgmental people can be … All the rude comments about being a gal of “questionable character” all because I rode a motorcycle. Twits! They walked on the other side of the sidewalk, heck probably thought about hiding their children. I didn’t give a crap… I loved motorcycles, I love riding and I love making every day in life an adventure.
I’ve never had a brother, father or male figure in my life to help me with motorcycles, I did it all on my own. I think determination, bullheadedness and a good dose of stupidity is what fueled my passion for riding and I embrace my foundation of hard knocks to this day. Damn I’ve never been one to take the easy route.
Today there are so many opportunities for women to get out and ride.
So many resources to learn on your own do it for yourself even if you don’t have any connections to others with motorcycles.
And if you do have friends, family and people around you that ride – Awesome! Join them. Life is better from the “moto view” of things.
So that’s a little of my story and what I’m excited about is we ALL have a story.
Back when I started, there was so little if hardly any support for women riders and I’m excited things have changed.
Adding a “turbo boost” to my excitement is my friend, fellow motorcyclist, kick ass Motorcycle Attorney Russ Brown will be supporting us women riders with some really awesome moto campaigns that I’ll be filling you in on. The BAM, Free Breakdown and Legal Assistance for Motorcyclists crew will be at ALOT of events this year; all the major rallies and we’re gonna have a lot of cool things to connect with you on.
I want to hear your stories ladies! How did you get started in riding? Who helped you? Post your stories in the comments here or on my Facebook page womenmotorcyclists.
Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys will be hosting a party in honor of women riders at the Legendary Sturgis Buffalo Chip during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally
So bring on the good times 2012!
