My views, information, and adventures in motorcycling and photography. I'm a lady biker married to a wonderful biker husband. I love to ride my Yamaha V-Star 650 Custom and I want to share what I learn with others. I'm 5'2" tall and that provides challenges in itself. I've been riding just over 6 years now and I'm still learning lots. Check out my adventures in motorcycling and other fun activities. . .

Happy 2007 New year!!!!
As I look over this last year of 2006, I thank God for all the blessings He has granted me. This last year was a lot of fun. My family and I have been blessed in many ways. When I joined the local ladies motorcycle group, the Mountain Shadow (a chapter of Women on Wheels), that was probably one of the best things I did for 2006. This group, while mainly ladies, has some great guys that ride along. We also have some family members, too. It's a very diverse group of people whose goals are to safely motorcycle, care for others, and have fun along the way. We made many new and wonderful friends in this group and I did many really fun rides through the year with them. To the Mountain Shadow Riders - thank you to each and everyone of you for your friendship and I look forward to another year of getting to know you better, meeting new people and the adventures we have on motorcycles together. This is a very caring group, in many ways. They care for each other and the community. It's a real blessing to be able to call myself a member of the Mountain Shadow Riders.
With the Mountain Shadow Riders I have been able to strengthen my motorcycle skills in many ways. I learned how to ride in a group and the many skills and hand signals required to do this. Through the motorcycle scavenger hunt contest, I learned soooo many things. I can now ride more comfortably on gravel. The hunt took me to some really interesting places, which I shared a few in this blog, and different driving conditions. I rode in sun, rain, wind etc. I found out that I finished in about 5th place, of the 25 people who turned in their photos. I was surprised by that. It was a blast and we all enjoyed this friendly competition. Thank you Christine for putting this together. You did an awesome job and I know it was a lot of work.
I look forward to getting to know my fellow bloggers and making new friends. I have met many wonderful bloggers and look forward to the year ahead with you. I started blogging in the spring of 2006 and never dreamed where it would take me. I have enjoyed getting to know fellow motorcyclist, who share what they have learned or learning and the rides they take. I have enjoyed the Blogging Chicks group I participate in and the people I have met along the way. I have also enjoyed getting to know the bloggers in the Saturday Photo Hunt that I've been participating in. The people in this group a very imaginative in the photos they have taken and share with the theme for each week.
I got up late, due to the New Year party we hosted at my house, so I must keep this short for now.
Have fun in this new year and wishing you many wonderful/fun/friendship making adventurous in your part of the world,
