40 and Feeling Fabulous!
The day I came home from the MSF basic course and got on Stella for the first time.
As I ended my 39th birthday, I felt I needed to do something different to welcome the next decade in my life. Prior to this thought, I hadn't been on a bike for over 20 years. During those years, I'd married, had children and raised my family. It was time for myself now and riding a motorcycle sounded perfect. My husband and I enrolled in the MSF basic course and we bought a used 2005 Softail Deluxe to share. I got home from the class and got straight on the bike. The thrill and excitement that comes with riding that powerful piece of equipment between ones legs is indescribable. The feeling of the wind in your face, the roar in your ears and the goofy smile on your lips is something only the ones that ride can explain, and sometimes it can't be explained because it's too hard to put into words. Long story short, we had to get my husband another bike because we both wanted to ride and there wasn't enough time to share one bike. It's been 2 years now since I first got on my bike (who is now called Stella) and I've logged in about 28K miles. My husband and I did our first long distance trip of 2365 miles and LOVED IT!!! I just can't get enough riding time. Ride safe and enjoy the ride Ladies!!
