My First Motorcycle

Ok. So, I sold my very first motorcycle today. I'm bummed but happy at the same time if that makes sense. It was my baby. It was my motorcycle of "firsts."It took me on many adventures and I created a pretty strong bond with it. As hard as it was to let it go, I'm glad it went to a person who is so happy to own it now.

I bought the bike in 2012. A 1975 Yamaha RD250. It was perfect and a great bike to learn on. 
It was in good shape and was ready for me to ride. 
First motorcycle, first ride.
Only major change I made was the exhaust. It made it sound less like a weed wacker.

This bike has been around the block...
Shannon learning to ride.

Shannon's first time riding on the street with traffic.

Josh Nowell riding it from Manteo after his bike died on the way home from Revenge Run 3.

3 year old Eli.

Eli's first ride on a motorcycle with his daddy.

Jaime and Berkley's first.

My sister's first.

My mom just liked it. 

The bike took us places...
Heading to Ocracoke. Revenge Run 3.

Shannon rode it to Ocracoke. Revenge Run 4.

To Greenies many times.

Slades in Surry, Va.

And on countless Sunday rides to nowhere.

I manly used it to get to work and back...
...sometimes in fishnets.

As you can see, this bike has given me and plenty of others many memories. I'm sad to see it go but it's gonna be in good hands...
From one bitchin lady to another. Take good care of her Jules! 

Let Her Ride.

Rode out to Slades Raceway in Surry, Va with Kate and Shannon. Oh, and two of the boyfriends Brett and Myles. We let them ride with us...sometimes. 

Slades is a OHV park with mostly trails. In the spring and summer they hold dirt drag races once a month. Today was Slades opening race day and also our buddy Skip's birthday! 

Happy Birthday Skip!

I captured a moment. Heart.

Good day.
Good weather.
Bad bitches.

More female riders? YES PLEASE

More and more of my female friends have been coming to me to learn how to ride. So far, I have had the pleasure of teaching 12 beautiful and courageous ladies. I can't tell you how proud I am of every single one of them. Starting from very little or no experience, not giving up, pushing past their fears and just going for it....they are inspirational. They have made me love teaching. Seeing the joy and excitement on their face when they first take their feet off the ground makes me so fucking happy. I am lucky to share that moment with them. Some of them stuck with it, bought a bike and got their motorcycle license. Some of them learned that it wasn't for them and haven't showed anymore interest in riding. Either way I am still proud of each and every one of them.

I spent the last two days teaching these lovely ladies....
