G’s Spot: Born to Ride

G’s Spot: Born to Ride

by -

I hope all you mother's out there had a great Mother's Day weekend!

Again, thanks for all the questions. The one that I'll answer this week is about motorcycles. Motorcycles have been a part of my life since I can remember. My older brother and younger bother ride. But this isn't about them…it's about us, ladies!

Over the last five years the number of women riders has increased dramatically. When I got my first bike in the early 80s, there were very few women riders on the road. I would see maybe two or three women all summer, if any. Now, it's going faster every year. I would say that I see at least four or five women riding every day that riders are out. Riding on the back is becoming a pastime. Don't get me wrong ladies, that's great if that is where you feel comfortable. But if you want something a little different, feel more in control and still get to hang out with your partner, get your own bike!

Guys are starting to come around with this. My brother's partner got her own bike after riding on the back for three years, now she'll never go back to riding "Bitch!" Men love that I ride. It is usually followed by, "I wish my partner liked to ride; she want's me to get ride of my bike" or "I use to ride until…" you can fill this in with several choicies but most of them include the word partner/girlfriend/significant other/wife made them get rid of it.

Ladies, instead of suggesting that your partner get ride of his/her bike, try driving one yourself. There's nothing else like it!
