Thanks for the encouragement

Glad to hear from you Barb of PA. I too, just love to ride. It keeps me going. You know that if it's something you really love, you will put forth the effort. An 89 year old lady on a Honda Shadow inspired me. What I thought was, if she can do something like that at her age,I could too for as long as I'm able..Her picture was in the newspaper her together with her phone number and of course I wanted to talk to her and did too. She told me she and her nephew rode about 200 mi every week end. she is the oldest woman in FL. To take the motorcycle course, pass it and be issued a llscense.She told me she has been diagnosed with cancer and this was on her bucket list. The nextt thing on the list was ice skating, but did admit she had crossed off parasailing and skydiving.This article appeared in the Sept 21, addition of our news paper and I clipped out the article.The last I heard she took the treatment and was doing ok.So ladies... If you aren't 89 yet, there still might be some hope for you and I wan't to become the next person to hold the record for the state. Your FL Windsister

To Judy... Jane 14 th.. I would love to post the link about the 89 yr. old woman , but it was a 79 year old, my error I wrote article before reread the article in the newspaper.. It is still pretty remarkable though. I have the article, it is very long and I would gladly share, but I don't know how to post a link.

Wow, I'd LOVE to see the article about the 89 year old rider. Last year I remember seeing something similiar about a group of friends in Japan, men between the age of about 75 tp 90 riding all over their country.

If possible, please provide a link. I'd love to share this with some other women riding group sites I'm on. Thanks.
