I’ve got soooooo many photos from my 6,000+ mile July 2017 trip, so I’ll share a few each week…ENJOY!
The 2nd Annual Mountain Moxie women’s motorcycling conference was held May 5-7 at Little Switzerland, North Carolina, and what a fabulous weekend it was! I was thrilled to see some of my friends from last year, and enjoyed making new ones. This year, my friend and fellow BMW rider, Sibley Poland, met me in Rutherfordton, NC, the Thursday night prior to Mountain Moxie, and we had a great night in that quaint little town. We stayed at the historic Carrier House Bed and Breakfast and enjoyed a fun evening of Greek food, beverages and a startling visitation from the other side…you’ll have to ask about the ghost “tap” I received. Whoa!
Upon arrival to Little Switzerland, Sibley and I really enjoyed our accommodation choice at the La Petite Chalet, just a short walk from the Switzerland Inn where the events were taking place. The 2-bedroom chalet was gorgeous…inside and out! And after just a short walk up the hill, we were submerged into a fantastic world of women and motorcycles. Robin Dail and Beth Lavinder hosted a wonderful weekend that offered informative and inspiring seminars, on-site vendors offering an array of motorcycle-related products and services, social hours where we made several new friends, delicious food which was included in the conference fee, and just an all-around great time in a spectacular setting!
I highly recommend attending future Mountain Moxie gatherings! Check with Robin Dail’s site, Moto Girl Cafe, for information on future details: motogirlcafe.com. 💃🏻
How in the world did August, September and October 2016 already arrive and speed away, leaving really great memories in their dust? It’s true that “time flies when you’re having fun.” Honestly, life has been throwing so much opportunity at this Fashionista this past three months that it’s wearing her Iron Butt out…but I’m certainly not complaining! Now that riding season has slowed for a brief respite, I’ve got so much to say and will be posting much more information in the coming weeks. But for now, I’m letting the pictures tell some stories! 💋
Ahhhhh, finally! Although March weather was very fickle at times, the 2016 riding season was officially commenced. That first weekend in March, I rode my pearly white steed out of the barn and over the starting line…destination – Daytona Beach, Florida. This year commemorated Daytona’s 75th Annual Bike Week, and I wanted to see what this Dodracentennial celebration of motorcycles was all about. I will report the full story in the May 2016 issue of BMW Owners News magazine, so be sure to check back for the link coming soon!!!
Big hijinks in ATL this year with my crew for the Monster Energy Supercross 2016 race! I’m not sure I’ve laughed so hard in like 10 years or something…point being, GREAT weekend! There are two guys in this universe, who I am sure are the craziest, funniest Dad/Son team ever. Never a dull moment! And I am so lucky to witness all of their antics…as the innocent bystander, of course! 😎 Love those two!
