    Chloe –

    After being a passenger for a couple summers, I wanted to be in control of my own bike (and my life) and decided on a whim that I needed to own my own motorcycle. I no longer wanted to ride bitch or have anyone continue to try staking claims on me if I did. Having my own bike would allow me to remain independent, but also be part of a community that I grew to enjoy.

    I purchased my bike at the end of summer in July of 2017. Being stubborn and not listening to anyone’s advice, I purchased a 2013 Harley Davidson Softail Slim for my first bike. I am the third owner of this bike (and I intend on being the last). Most of the modifications were already done by the previous owner. It’s a 103 with a Stage 1 kit. Both the front and rear have been lowered, the original seat was swapped out for one by Drag Specialties and it has a Dakota digital speedometer/tachometer. I have only had a couple of modifications done since owning it including upgrading the clutch to a Screaming Eagle clutch, a LED headlight, and most recently added a custom 25” sissy bar.

    Of course, I have plans for more mods in the future. In August of 2019, I was hired by Delta College as a Motorcycle Safety Rider Coach. I have been coaching at Delta College since then and I absolutely love it. I always get a chuckle when the “older” guys who have been “riding for years” don’t want to listen to a damn word I’m saying at the beginning of class, but by the end of class come up to me and thank me for helping them. It’s both a humbling and rewarding job. I am also a member of the Women’s Coalition of Motorcyclists (WCM) whose goal is to create more visibility and opportunities for female riders across the nation. I am constantly trying to encourage people to join our community, especially females because this community tends to have too much testosterone in it, ha-ha!
