3. How many bikes have you owned and why did you choose your current model?

I’ve owned two bikes.  The first bike I learned to ride was my Mom’s.

I chose my current bike because it fits me well.

Pam 6

 

4. Tell us the story behind why/when you decided to ride your own bike?

After raising my kids it was time to get back to riding. When I want to go for a ride I don’t have to wait or rely on anyone.

Pam 9

 

6. Do you have a biker who is your inspiration?

My dad is my inspiration.

Pam 8

He always gave me encouragement to try new things. When he knew I was going for a ride he would say;Watch out for the cars because they aren’t watching for you.

My dad was on the Omaha Fire Department for 33 years and has seen a lot of Motorcycle accidents. He knew first hand. When I went to College for the first time last year he was so proud of me. You see, I’ve been out of school for 37 years. It was hard to go back.  I graduated in May of 2014 with my Book Keeping Certificate.

I’m so glad he was still here to see it.

Dad passed in July and I know he is watching over me now.

Pam 2

 

7. What are some of you favorite things about the biker lifestyle?

I love making new friends and meeting new people.

Pam 7

 

I love that if a biker sees another bike broke down on the road they stop to see if they need help.

I ride because I love freedom, independence, and the movement of the ground beneath me.

 

8. Give us one of your favorite two-wheeled stories.

All of my 2 wheel stories are special. Can’t just choose one.

Pam 4

 

9. What advice would you give other females who are thinking about riding their own?

Take a riders course. Don’t get a bike that is too big for you to handle.

Pam 12

 

10. There are many “Biker Codes” out there. If you had a favorite what would it be?

I will not show disrespect to other bikers less experienced or knowledgeable than I am.

It’s all about Respect.

Pam 10

 

11. Final words?

Live for today like there’s no tomorrow.

Do what you enjoy doing and don’t let anyone tell you you can’t.

Pam 5

 

 

Cheers!

8. Give us one of your favorite two-wheeled stories.

One of my most favorite bike trips was a 6 hour ride to Soldier, IA with my girl Chris Yager.   The trip should have only taken maybe a little over an hour.   Let’s just say, we showed some of those country boyz how to greet a biker bitch.

I also can’t forget the Algona Freedom Rally Trip.

While riding, NEVER let anybody take you out of your OWN comfort zone!

10.There are many “Biker Codes” out there. If you had a favorite what would it be? Or, if you were to add your own code, what would you say?

What NOT to wear while riding is a biker code I like!  Some people just don’t get that flip-flops & shorts are not safe to ride in!

11. Final words?

Marcy didn’t leave you with any final words – but I will.

I met Marcy a few years ago and I can tell you… I have NEVER met anyone like her.

This is one chick that lives life to the utmost fullest and one we could all take lessons from.  

Marcy is full of life, lives in the now, is a true free spirit, never follows the norm, lives the life she wants to live, is loyal to her family and friends, doesn’t know a stranger, lives EACH and EVERY day with such passion and does it all with ZEST, enthusiasm, charisma, passion and a whole heart.

 

If we could all learn anything from Marcy – it would be to not take yourself so seriously and experience everything you possibly can.

Marcy Spirit

Thank You, Marcy for being you!

You are a true gift to the Biker Community and our little crew known as the Biker B!tches.

 

 

Cheers!

Tyree and Yours Truly

Fast forward a few years when my brother came to live with me.  He was daring enough to let me ride his Honda Shadow and it was then I realized how much I still loved “going outside to play” and knew I had to get my own!

6. Do you have a biker who is your inspiration?

My Dad.

I remember being a kid and he would have my sister sitting on the tank sitting “criss-cross applesauce” and me on the back with my feet thrown up over his legs so I wouldn’t get burned by the pipes. Dad would do some of the craziest dirt bike stunts and I thought he was so cool!  He really taught me how to ride.

7. What are some of you favorite things about the biker lifestyle?

The friends and people you meet. It is like no other!! A respect and love for something that is so rejuvenating, thrilling and that gives a since of strength, power, and freedom.

It is something that someone who doesn’t ride, can’t understand.

8. Give us one of your favorite two-wheeled stories.

How can I pick just one?

Every “B!tch” ride has been amazing and the long trips to bike rallies are some of the best trips I’ve ever been on.  Even just jumping on a back winding road with one of your biker friends is a memorable event just the same.

10.  There are many “Biker Codes” out there.  If you had a favorite what would it be?

Bikers have a brotherhood and sisterhood like no other. 

Unlike so many groups, bikers truly are a family, and bikers live by a code of respect.

.

11. Final words?

Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, love honestly, laugh easy, keep it simple, ride often, ride free and never regret anything that makes you smile!

And, my dad always said “I work hard, and I play just as hard as I work“.

Thanks, Dad.

That’s the way I am choosing to live my life as well.

The long trips I take with the girls!    Each year I get together with a group of women and we ride to a new destination.   So far I’ve ridden to Arkansas, Milwaukee, Wisconsin Dells,  Illinois, Minnesota, South Dakota and Wyoming.   Next year I’m going to the 75th Anniversary of Sturgis!

1. How long have you been riding?

I grew up on mini bikes, but I was always just a little scared of riding back then.  When I was 18, my husband would let me give him rides on his dirt bike.  On Mother’s Day, seven years ago, I got my first bike and have been riding my own ever since.

2. What do you currently ride?

3. How many bikes have you owned and why did you choose your current model?

I have owned two bikes.  My first one was an 1100 V Star.   I have since purchased my Heritage Softail, which I got for a screaming great deal.   I kept my V Star for my 16 year old son who has now been riding a few years.

4. Does your bike have a name?

I haven’t gotten around to my new bike.  Any ideas?


5. Tell us the story behind why/when you decided to ride your own bike.

I love riding my own bike and I feel more safe when I am in charge.   I actually had my first street bike before my husband got his.  I have always felt free riding my own bike. Riding is like Prozac.  It relieves a lot a stress.

Riding is something I had wanted to do for a long time, but I waited until my kids were old enough to watch themselves.  Kids first, riding second.

6. Do you have a biker who is your inspiration?

All women riders are my inspiration.  I have found that women tend to ride safer then men, and women always form a bond, no matter the age difference.

7. What are some of you favorite things about the biker lifestyle?

The freedom.

Meeting new people.

Motorcycles are always a great ice breaker.   There is always a story.

Lora 3


8. Give us one of your favorite two-wheeled stories.

My favorite two wheeled story was my first women’s trip with about 20 ladies.  The oldest was 66 and the youngest 32. We rode to Wisconsin, got rained on and ended up drying our clothes out at a Casey’s along the way.   We rolled into the Dells in matching shirts and people everywhere wanted to take our pictures with them.   It was my first time to go on a trip on my bike with only women.

Our trip was full of adventure.  We had a couple ladies wreck, we lost stuff along the highway, people left their blinkers on (apparently this makes a few ladies really bitchy).  For the record, it wasn’t my blinker, but it was a lesson!  I now always make sure my blinkers are off and I learned how to ride in formation.

All in all, it was a wonderful experience.

Lora 7


9. What advice would you give other females who are thinking about riding their own?

My advice would be:

  1. If you lay your bike down get back on.  
  2. Don’t buy a brand new bike to begin with get a nice used one.
  3. Ride alone on less populated back roads so you can get in uninterrupted practice.
  4. Never let your bike get dusty.

10.  There are many “Biker Codes” out there. If you had a favorite what would it be? Or, if you were to add your own code, what would you say?

Always ride like a lady.  Keep it classy, girls.

11. Final words?

Ride every chance you can, you never know when it might be your last.
