How did you hear about the SCRC and when did you join?
In 2007 I started riding with my husband as a passenger. He has been a member since 2006.

How long have you been riding?
I've been riding bitch 2.5 years...I just got my M license a couple weeks ago. Maybe Doc will ride bitch behind me someday.

Have you ever taken a motorcycle safety course?
Yes, at LFCC in March.

What was your first bike?
Don't have one yet, but maybe a Vulcan 800.

How many bikes have you owned?
None yet.

Why do you ride?
To hang out with the hubby

Have you ridden with an organized group before?
Only SCRC.

What modifications have you done to your bike?
Don't have one yet :(

What accessories do you want to add to your bike?
Loud pipes and a nice windshield. I don't want to be like Chad getting all those bugs on me.

What is your dream bike?
A V-star.

What kind of riding do you like to do — straight-aways or twisties?
Straight aways for now... but twisties tend to be in better countryside.

If you have a nickname, how did you get it? Tell the truth!
It's my old IRC nickname. I don't remember how I got it, I just know that my first choice was taken by someone else :(. I suppose I need to embarrass myself in front of the club to get a new one.

What is your favorite riding route?
Mountains in WVA.

Do you ride your bike to work?
No. I work really early in the morning and don't feel safe riding over the mountain at 3:30am.

What is the fastest you’ve ridden?
3rd gear in the MSF class. Behind Dave, around 80 or maybe a touch faster.

What is your favorite time of year to ride?
May or September... When it's not so hot.

Have you ever been down? If so, how were you hurt and what did you learn from the incident?
I haven't been down yet.

Have you ever done an "Iron Butt" ride?
Not an official one, but Dave and I rode almost 1000 miles straight through on July 4, 2008.

What was the worst weather in which you’ve ridden?
Pouring down rain. We dumped water out of our boots when we got home.

Do you know how to work on your bike?
No. That's the man's job.

What is your favorite road song?
Lady Antebellum - Need You Now (Chad knows why).

What was your most adventurous ride?
900+ miles at once from Illinois to VA.

What rallies or events do you like to attend?
For now, just Rolling Thunder.

Is there someone who rides "two-up" with you?
No, not now.
