Someone recently asked me "how long are you gonna keep this Biker Momma thing going?". My response, "I don't know." The truth is that I'm passionate about motorcycles and fascinated by other women who ride. So I guess the adult me would answer that I'll keep going as long as I have willing interviewees and as long as the topic still fascinates me. The 2-year old me would simply say "It's my blog so I can do whatever I want". Right?  This week I'm super excited to introduce you to Bernadette Murphy, best-selling author of Harley and Me: Embracing Risk on the Road...

I love meeting other women who ride. I'm fascinated by their stories of adventure on 2-wheels, and how they got started riding. Since my own journey started much later in life, when my kids were already in high school and college, it's hard for me to imagine what it would have felt like to pursue my passion for riding and motorcycles if my kids had been younger at the time. Who knows? Maybe I wouldn't have. So I'm excited to bring you this issue of the Biker Momma series. Beth Demmon, a talented writer and scooter-girl-turned-biker-chick shares things from her perspective as...

This is personal. Mother’s Day is bittersweet for me. Every year, for the past 15-years, I try to ignore all of the “Gift Ideas for Mom” commercialism. I avoid the card aisle at the grocery store, knowing there’s no reason for me to go there. Mother’s Day is a reminder that my mom is no longer with me.

I’m proud to be a mom to 2 amazing kids, step-mom to a high-school sophomore and mom-in-law...

I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who would say the first thing that caught my eye was the pink motorcycle. And I mean really PINK! I used to own a pink and black Sportster, but my bike paled in comparison to Kelly's bike, which has been totally customized head to toe. And it's INCREDIBLE! Although her bike is what first drew me in, it was the pictures of her kids and the love of her life that held my interest. What can I say? I'm a sucker for a family that is all about motorcycles. I wasn't sure when, but I knew one...

Social media is a funny thing when you really think about it. It’s all about being social, with strangers really. I have more “friends” on social media than I do in real life. Sad but true. However, there are also real connections that start on social media that often evolve into “real” friends and eventual in-person meetings. Personally, I have met 3 of my Facebook “friends” in real life, and I know that I will meet more somewhere down the road. I have never met my next Biker Momma, in real life, however, what what first inspired me to “friend” her was...
