I am 56 years young and had always been a passenger, not any more!!!

by Linda
(Sylacauga, AL)

Just a word of encouragement, I had never been on a bike even as a passenger until I was into my 50's. I fell in love with the ride. I started out with a Yamaha 650 with a Voyager kit, my husband said oh you will never learn to ride it! I showed him, I got on and have not slowed down since. I rode the 650 for about a year, sold it, bought a Royal Star 1300 put the Voyager kit on, had it painted pearl white with pearl pink flames front to rear and love every inch of it!! If I can do it so can anyone that really wants to ride. Just do it, go with GOD Speed and blessing!!!

You go Girl!!!!!

Will Spring ever get here??????
by: Linda

I am soooo wanting warm weather to get here, I can't wait to get on my bike. It has been so cold that I have rarely just started it up to keep the battery up. I am still trying to come up with a name for my bike. I want to paint it on the back bumper of the trike kit, I would appreciate some suggestions, keep in mind that it is pearl white with pink pearl flames outlined with a charcoal pin shading. All suggestions are appreciated, the only thing I have come with so for is "Pinky Leigh". what do you think????

Linda, that's awesome. I hear so many women say, "I always wanted to..." But you did it! Better late than never. Congratulations!

Pics of My Bike
by: Linda

I am not good with a camera but I added some before and after pictures of my bike under the Your Bikes section. I just entered them so it may be a little while before they show up. Let me hear some suggestions about a name for her.

One of my friends recently upgraded her ride to the Royal Star Tour Deluxe (1300) in pearl white. We would really love to see what yours looks like with the pink flames!

50's Rock!!!
by: Yve

In May 2010, after my 50's too, I passed my driving license and ride a Vrod since then...love it, started very slow on the next door vacant parking lot to learn how to feel on this big puppy and after a 2 weeks training, launched myself in the real world! I smile when I ride, I talk to God, I thank him for giving me all these good feelings and to protect me! It is a great meditation place to be!
