A Woman Who Rides

I came across this amazing video on Belt Drive Betty's Blog. For the first time, I feel that someone has grasped just a glimmer of what happens in my heart every time I get on the motorcycle.

I was really unhappy before I started riding with Highway. Ride after ride, my heart would blossom and grow. One day, on the Ortega Highway, I felt myself change forever. Coming through the turns at high speeds, Collective Soul's Tremble For My Beloved blaring in my headphones, I felt my heart explode! Since that day, I haven't looked back. Everyday I look forward to my next ride.

This is what it is like for me:

Thank you Betty for posting this video!


  1. Sash:

    sorry for not commenting sooner about your Gypsy Trip. You are following in the footsteps of many before you who are doing the same thing. Here some links of some rides I am following on

    I hope they give you inspiration to go on your trip of discovery, and don't worry what others think, they are just jealous

    I too am taking a trip next summer and I hope our paths cross. I am also going to be in SFO this weekend. If you are around would be good to see you both

    I also agree that riding your own bike is like nothing else. It's like your steel horse which can take you anywhere you want to go. Twist the throttle and feel the wind . . . there is no other feeling of freedom, and you are lucky to be able to share this time with someone you love

People call me "Sash" because I'm a former beauty queen in my old home town. My father used to ride in an MC which got me interested in the culture. After my last divorce I said "goodbye" to Susie Homemaker and became the rude biker chick I always felt inside. (Read more...)
