Small steps to start

In a lot of the articles and books I’ve been reading lately about being more productive, creating and tackling just about anything, starting small is the big deal because those little baby steps add up to giant leaps. One of the questions during my interview for the Global Women Who Ride project was about working on your bike and maintenance, to which my answer was that I do not although I want to. I think you should know how to do even basic maintenance like chain tightening, when to put air in your tires and proper air pressure for your tires.  So today I decided to do that one baby step (and baby step it was!). The battery was out of the bike to charge it and I decided that I would be the one to put it back in. I assumed correctly this was very simple and it was […]

Signed up for a cool motorcyle project!

My boyfriend forwarded me a link today for a project called ‘Global Women Who Ride‘. It’s an ambitious project for sure and I’m excited to see where it goes! Here’s a little more info about it, if you’re interested in signing up, know someone who would or just want to read the interviews as they’re posted. About the Global Women Who Ride Project Headed up by Rashmi Tambe, [her] aim with this ambitious new project is to highlight women motorcyclists across the globe and provide an insight into what a motorcycle rider in another country looks like, what she loves about riding in her particular part of the planet, and what commonalities and differences there are in her riding experiences vs. those of other riders.

Just for fun – Heather’s bike

Just had a great weekend at the Rhinebeck Wine Festival! I found a dee-licious Gewurtzraminer. I wish I had bought more than two bottles! I met up with my girls after dropping the boyfriend off for his two week adventure in Colorado and Utah. So excited for him. Here is the group before sending them off on a long 30 hour road trip. One of the girls I met up with rides a Honda Shadow and loves pink, clearly marrying the two with gusto! While I might never trick my bike out in pink, it certainly fits my friend Heather. And I won’t fault a girl who rides. 🙂 I can also flat foot on her bike, which is something I cannot do on mine… unless you count tilting to one side and only flat footing one foot! (The pink swirl on the front is a cat decal – she’s […]

Wishing to Ride

The weather has been so perfect here in WV today. I’ve seen all these motorcycles out, groups of them, just enjoying the twisty roads and the beautiful day. I wish I had my bike down here so I could just get away for a bit. Hopefully when I get back home, I’ll get a few rides in before the weather gets too chilly but I won’t be back until early October. Unless the BF decides to buy me heated gear then maybe I can extend my season! ps – after reading “unless the BF decides to buy me heated gear”, I felt very greedy or something. I don’t want to give the impression that expect it, rather, it would be a generous gesture from him but totally on his own accord. I would love to have some heated gear, but as a fledgling design company of one, it is not […]

Just for fun: Knit Motorcycle!

So, in another quarter of my life I’m a crafty kind of gal and I saw this on the forum Ravelry. The original post is here, from 2006, so it’s been around awhile but an oldie can still be a goodie! She’s also knit a gun, a drill and a tool belt complete with tools. Her website is here.

I am officially official!

I have passed the MSF and got my license today!! The trip to the DMV was actually quite fast. Maybe going first thing in the morning isn’t the best idea. Maybe that’s what everyone thinks or has to do because of work so 11ish is better because everyone is gone!
