2000 Honda Shadow VLX
by Kelly C (CKELGO)
Me & My Shadow!
I started out on a 1996 Honda Rebel that a friend of mine started on. The next season, I got my Shadow. I have been riding this one for 8 years, and next year I plan on getting something bigger. I got my eye on an Aero, probably a black or burgundy. I am 5'2" and chubby and this would be perfect for me.
I rode with my hubby for many years, and got jealous when he would go for a ride and I had to stay home with our daughters. When they got older, I decided that I wanted to go on my own, and I got the Rebel. Now we occasionally take the girls out for a ride and have dinner somewhere. And hubby and I belong to the Moose Riders, a group of riders from the Beloit Moose Lodge. We ride to different places and raise money for different charities in the area. So far, we have over 50 members and are growing all the time.
Ladies, if you are considering riding, DO IT! You are never too old and you can do it! It is the most fun you can have and there lots of women who ride.
