I have always loved animals, even when I was a little girl. In fact, I used to want to be a veterinarian. For years, I would tell everyone that’s what I was going to be when I was a grown-up.

Although I chose not to be a veterinarian, I still love all animals and … Continue reading here.

My First Motorcycle Experience

I remember my first time on a motorcycle. I was 16 and my brother-in-law took me for a ride on his Suzuki Bandit 1200. Now, I had always loved the look and idea of motorcycles, especially Ducuatis (pictured above) but had never had the opportunity to ride a motorcycle until that day.
