About Me

What's up everyone?!?!?! My birth name is Elizabeth but most of my friends and family call me Liz. I'm from good old Iowa and have lived here all of my life. I am a very outgoing fun loving gal. I'm the type to be up for anything and i LOVE to laugh! My dream is to get my very own hog... not the animal hog but a Harley hog and I can now say that this dream has finally been achieved!!!! There is nothing like the feeling of hitting the pavement with the wind blowin' your hair a mess. You get to see and experience so much. No air condition, no radio, the wind in your hair, watch out for those bugs they can give ya a lil sting when they hit ya at 70mph. Elvis Presley once said Ambition is a dream with a V8 engine! I love that saying... Well stay tuned to hear some of my experiences and stories from the wide open highway! Always remember keep the paint up and the rubber down : )

My First Solo Ride...

Wow sorry everyone its been over a month since my last post! Man things around here have been a little crazy.... I feel like i have been running around like a chicken with its head cut off!

Well since my last post a good friend of mine has been letting me ride her old motorcycle..... Wow it aint that perdy but man i loved every minute of it! I still can't wait to get my own and be able to just ride.
One sat i went out to her place and we had planned to ride. It would be my first time riding since i had taken my motorcycle class through ABATE of IA last year so i was nervous that i would be rusty. But man it all comes back pretty quick. I first just went up and down her long driveway a few times then she says well you ready to take it out on the road... I about peed my pants i didn't know if i could handle it.... Well i sucked it up and we took off. She followed me on her motorcycle. We did great and man we were just cruising along back in the hills when we came upon a stop sign that was on an incline. Well she pulled up next to me and we we trying to talk over the crazy loud cackles of the old bike i was on, we decide to take off what do ya know, i kill it... Well this bike had not been ridden in quite some time so it was having a heck of a time starting back up. So we decide to push start it, we turn it around so it will be going down hill. Upon turning it around we dump the dang thing and fluids of all kinds just start pouring out of every or-face of the bike... This whole time we can't stop laughing at ourselves. We get it back up and she hops on and i proceed to run behind and give it a good push start.... we must have tried for a half hour before we said screw it, pulled it off to the side and went and got a charger for it. For the first time riding it was the best time and i will always have a great story to tell about it.
Here is a picture that she took of me riding the old bike a few weeks later. That day we didn't have any troubles, we ended up riding for quite awhile. I think that i am defiantly getting the hang of it and will be ready for my own soon. Now just gotta save the money : )
Well until next time have a good safe ride.....
