“Motorcycles are dangerous,” I hear it all the time, “Well it’s not you but the cars that don’t see you,” all the cliched reasons why this isn’t a practical hobby for a mother, wife, or just for a woman in general.  Funny thing how the hubbs doesn’t get this speech quite as often.  It’s expected behavior for the hubster, a veteran, a hunter, a thrill seeker, being a motorcyclist is just the next thing on the list of “dudedom” and few question it.  Not the case with me however.  I am also a veteran, I love the outdoors, and I enjoy jumping on my bike and getting lost in the scenery, I just happen to have boobs.  It’s all good though, people misinterpret what they don’t understand & it seems to me that many don’t understand the need for adventure or the actions behind fulfilling that need.

IMG_7337.jpgMy personal journey of highs and lows have made me realize that “mother’s little helper” is found on two wheels and other positive forms of adventure seeking as I get outside of myself and connect with the world around me.  Thankfully the hubster is so secure in his masculinity that my adventure seeking antics are fully encouraged, sometimes it’s together and sometimes I go it alone.  Whatever the case, I love making the most of “this thing called life.”  Cue Prince music…

  1. I have nothing against motorcycles or anyone who rides them. If I had the time and money, I’d more than likely have one myself. My dad was a Harley guy. But I’m different… I’d have a Victory or an Indian. But, he got in a terrible wreck once and it’s put me off of them.. lol I like them, but I don’t trust the people on the road with me…

    1. There’s a certain connection with God’s creation that I feel when I’m out on a bike vs. a car. It’s not for everyone but I certainly enjoy it. I want more people to ride b/c I want them to experience that feeling but it certainly has to be something one is comfortable with.

  2. I can imagine! Just you and the open road! I can definitely see the connection.

    I also have a respect for bikers. Despite what others think about them, they’ve supported our nation and Southern heritage. Very admirable in my opinion.
