A very dear friend Cheryl gave me the book, Women, Motorcycles, and the Road to Empowerment by Liz Jansen. Cheryl says that watching my life of motorcycle riding on my Facebook fueled the fire to her deep seeded desire to ride. I spent a few evenings with Cheryl encouraging her on a dirt bike. I even love her enough that I let her take my girl around a few times to get the feel for the weight and functionality of a big girl bike. Cheryl claims that I am her inspiration and she has professed her gratitude many times in many ways.
Women, Motorcycles, and the Road to Empowerment by Liz Jansen is a collection of real-life stories of women riders. These stories have been both enlightening and encouraging; inspiring me to fuel the fire for this journey that always laid dormant in my head.
Women riders are growing in numbers every day and while there are some old school bikers that still believe women do not belong in the driver seat, the fact remains… we will not be kept on the bitch seat if our desire is strong enough.
I cannot say my copy of the book, because we’ve agreed to read it and pass it on, but the copy Cheryl gave me was inscribed by the author, Liz Jansen. Cheryl inscribed it for me, and I have inscribed it for my journey’s first sponsor, Sharon.
