QUOTE/MOTTO
If at first you don’t succeed, fix your ponytail and try again.

WHY DO YOU RIDE?
1) It proves (to me) that age is nothing to be afraid of. 2) I’m proof that you can learn new things and push beyond your perceived limits after age 50.

SKILL YOU WISH YOU COULD MASTER BUT HAVEN’T (YET)
Wheelies and manuals. I’ve done wheelies, but they’re aren’t pretty.
