I'm not good with words, English is my second language after all... So if it is a bit amusing to read, I apologise, and that's my excuse anyway It has been nearly a year since I joined NR. Before I used to be the one who always admired people riding motorcycles but knew nothing about life on two wheels. I always wanted to ride, never thought it was possible as I couldn't cycle, balancing a bike looked like a magic trick to me. This year I learnt a lot about these fascinating machines, "why's" and 'why not's" of riding them, got through the stress of learner and licence tests, discovered what an exhilarating feeling riding a bike gives me... But the best thing that happened to me this year was how many truly remarkable people I met through NR! I've made some amazing friends, but this time I wanted to mention these 5 girls who have been my inspiration through my journey. Berty, Exportswede, Bee, Goldenberri, Jozlyn. Not that long ago these girls have been going through the same, getting their L's, buying their first bikes, wobbling around the block before taking on an open road... They all have done remarkably well and are having amazing adventures of their own. This shot was taken in Feb 2015. Since then Berty got off her restrictions and rides a stunning Fireblade, riding the GOR at night is a piece of cake for her now! Exportswede has expanded her riding range to interstate, and we all enjoyed reading about her latest adventure to celebrate her birthday in style in Barossa. She remained faithful to her CB400, just changed the colour! Henrietta was called "yellow peril" recently, hmmmm.... Bee changed her little Yamma to a very sexy Z300, and now she takes to the HIlls on a regular basis and shares her terrific experience and teases us all with some mouthwatering culinary delights showcasing it all in her "Adventure of a girl and her two wheels". This girl is amazing! She never ever has helmet hair! She always looks like a model, gorgeous locks and a brilliant smile. Goldenberri famously ceremoniously burnt her Hi Viz after passing her licence test She also updated her bike, but she added gorgeous black VTR "Blackberri" to her stable. So now we have "Team Berri" zooming around, in busy city traffic, carving through the Hills or taking on the GOR. Jozlyn discovered the fun of camping and touring and had amazing adventures of her own riding throughout VIC,NSW and SA on her VTR and BMW F650GS. She is a Queen of the Dirt now! Remember how much it used to scare you? These five amazing women have been there for me, supporting and encouraging by example. They have achieved so much and have been through a lot along the way. They are absolutely remarkable women, intelligent, independent, strong, adventurous, open-minded, confident, and bloody mad, well they ride a motorbike after all! So here's to 5 sexy bikie chicks who became my friends and my family. Girls, you are truly hot !
