I have never been one to turn away from a challenge.
As a single mother of two, I became a full time student, while working the night shift six days a week. My children always came first, and I dedicated my days to supporting their dreams. Whether it be PTA meetings, sporting events, or school projects; my most cherished memories are those spent with my kids.
When the youngest went off to college, I found myself in an unfamiliar place. I had free time, and I had no idea what to do with it! As a result, I became a true workaholic, and ended up purchasing a sports bar in south Florida.
When my husband’s employer moved north, we followed. I sold my bar, and moved to Destin, Florida. I found a part-time job, but the days were long. That’s when my girlfriends and I decided to embark on a new adventure, we were going to get our motorcycle licenses!
At the age of “50-something” I signed up for the class. I remember the day I took the skill test, a rare day in Florida where the track was covered in ice! I was nervous, but I managed to focus on how badly I wanted to ride, passed the course, and got my license!
I purchased a Honda Shadow 750cc, and built my confidence by riding short distances around my neighborhood. With time, and my husband’s encouragement, I took to the streets. We met a great group of friends, and looked forward to riding on the weekends.
My husband had a 2003 Harley Davidson Deuce, when he purchased a Big Dog Custom Chopper. With the Deuce collecting dust, I decided to take it for a ride one afternoon. I have never looked back!
My friends and family all share a love for motorcycles. Even my mother jumped on the back, at the young age of 91. My husband took her around the neighborhood, and I could see her smiling from a block away. When she returned, she said that she had always wanted to do that, and she could now die happy. My son now owns a Harley, and I look forward to visits when we can all ride together.
Living in Florida, tollbooths are part of life. However, the “express” or “pre-paid” lanes are only for motorists with transponders, such as Sunpass, PikePass, EZ Pass, etc. While riding in groups, some friends struggled to dig out there pass and hold it in place before passing through the stations. I watched two friends drop the pass performing this tricky maneuver. Those who thought they passed through properly, later received citations. Others chose to just stop and pay cash, merge over to the side of the highway, and wait for the next group member to do the same.
One sunny afternoon, while following the stop-and-wait routine, I witnessed my friend nearly run down by a van leaving the booth. I knew there had to be a safer, easier way for us to travel.
That’s when I came up with Wrap-id Pass, a soft and weather resistant case to attach to our motorcycles. Other devices required permanent brackets, adhesives, and other alterations to the bike. My design uses a self-coiling band that attaches in one-step, stays securely in place, and eliminates the safety risks we face on toll roads.
Using Wrap-id Pass has made riding much easier and enjoyable. I felt I needed to share it with others, so we started a web site and the rest is history!
