Compared to the rest of our executive (past and present) I’m a relative newbie to motorcycling. I rode one summer when I was 21, then not again for 20 years. That summer’s riding was short lived, as I took a spill and broke a bone in my foot. Ron and I got together in 2002. I rode pillion for 2 years with him, but I wanted my own
ride. Along came ‘the lizard’ (2001 Kawasaki 500 – the little ninja), which I rode for 5 years. It was a great little bike, but short on wind protection, alternator power (for my electrics!) and cargo capacity. We looked at lots of other bikes over the years, but I’m ‘inseam challenged’. Then BMW came out with the lowered F650 twins. We ordered an Azure Blue Metallic one early in 2009, and I’ve been wearing out tires on it ever since!
My role as Event Coordinator for Valley BMW Riders is to organize/coordinate monthly breakfasts, potluck(s) and BBQ, as well as confirm venues (and coffee pots!) for our 4 campouts. And, of course, whatever else Mr. President sends my way!!!
Valley Riders is a big part of mine and Ron’s lives.
I treasure all my friends and riding buddies, so don’t be surprised to be greeted with a big hug!
