Motorcycle Day Trips



I got my motorcycle licence when I was 25 or 26 years old which caused my parent’s hair to turn white overnight.  I started riding again in 2010 when I bought Rhonda – my Honda 700 NCX, and since then, I’m hooked!  My goal is to travel with Rhonda as much as I can.

Mel, can you clone yourself and move with me?  I enjoyed all your classes and did feel so much better.  Your spirit and attitude was so positive that it rubbed off on the rest of us. I’m feeling sad but I’m willing to tackle a […]
