Raw from the Road, May 24, 2016
Freedom… It’s the Only word.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
When I was 12 years old I hopped on an older schoolmate’s Honda 150 after school and ripped through the small woods in my suburban neighborhood in Long Island, NY.
To my surprise, I rode that bike better than him.
I did this several times until the cops came and made us all go home.
It was then that I had my first thrill of motorcycle riding and today, though I do not own a motorcycle, I still savor the rush of being on the back of a motorcycle.
As oceans and mountains fly by I am that 12 year old girl again…wild, free and living in the moment.
It is with this passion for adventure that I have been creating a design marrying photography, motorcycles and my lust for “the ride.”
I will be launching this new design and body of work very soon, but I wanted to share my excitement about it with you.
Is it scary? Heck yeah!
Is it scary NOT to try something new? Heck yeah!
So, I prefer to be somewhat scared about trying something new, rather than letting my fear stymie me.
Oh, and this pic?
Yeah, it’s a photo of me posing as a motorcycle babe.
Ok, a middle aged motorcycle babe, but hey, that’s the beauty of motorcycles:
Just like beauty and being, adventure is ageless!
Be Brave, Be Strong, Be YOU!
