Dr. Rebecca Kuo-Ryan is Skilled on the Track and in the Operating Room “What are you doing?” This was Rebecca question to her boyfriend Robert when he bought a motorcycle. Rebecca had never been around bikes but as an orthopedic surgeon with a specialty in spinal injury and as the daughter of an orthopedic surgeon, she’d seen several people who’d wiped out and ended up in the operating room. She noticed that Robert was a very careful rider and soon, knowing how much it meant to him, Rebecca gave it a try. Despite seeing results of accidents, she wasn’t afraid on the back of his BMW touring bike and quickly began to enjoy it. “What if he’s injured or something and I need to go for help?” As a mother of two and a doctor, Rebecca was used to being prepared to handle anything. To answer her own question, she decided to learn to ride. Just in case! After taking the rider safety class Rebecca bought a BMW S1000 RR sport bike even though Robert hates what he calls, “crotch rockets.” When Robert and Rebecca became engaged the photographer asked about their common interests. When she heard about the motorcycle...
Boaterz N’ Bikers of America-Hull of a Tour 4

Boaterz N’ Bikers of America-Hull of a Tour 4

Last summer, more than a dozen boating industry folk cruised throughout New England at the helm of shiny Harley-Davidson rides as part of Boaterz n Bikerz of America HULL OF A TOUR: The Lobster Roll! The fourth in a series of organized, annual motorcycling and boat tours staged throughout America, Hull of a Tour is primarily geared for members of the boating industry and their friends. No matter the location, spectacular scenic roads, and destinations, hooking up with colleagues, and enjoying great grub are always on the agenda, as are the fun sponsored boating activities, which is what makes this tour especially unique. Past summer events included the first Hull of a Tour, a cross-country, 3,000-mile journey from Destin, Florida to San Diego, California; the Freedom Ride, from Sarasota, Florida to Washington, DC which concluded in the mega Memorial Day Rolling Thunder ride at the nation’s capital; and the 2016 Pacific Coast Rush, a 2,000-mile run from Seattle, WA to San Francisco, CA with a loop to Big Sur and plenty of towering redwoods and coastal beach scenes in between. We’ve included stories in Born To Ride about the previous two rides, and I’m glad to be back to share...

Open Road Girl – Women’s World

Open Road Girl When Melinda Johnson was in her 20’s she rode on back of her boyfriend’s bike. When that relationship ended she was a single mom with two teenagers, working a full-time job, and various part-time jobs— such as cleaning offices and selling Avon and other direct marketing products. There wasn’t much time to think about riding, but she did miss it. Later when dating a new guy, she mentioned that she’d love to ride her own motorcycle and he said, “Why not?” They bought bikes together and then she signed up for the rider course. Melinda started riding around the neighborhood to get used her new Harley-Davidson Dyna Low Rider. It was a big change from the little bike she’d taken her class on! Soon after venturing out onto the highway she crashed! Wearing full gear (remember, ‘All the gear; all the time!’) she was OK, but her bike had to be hauled away for three weeks in the shop. She was scared, and her confidence was shattered but with a loan payment and a new bike, Melinda wasn’t going to give up! She knew she could figure it out, so she got back on the bike. The...

Make It a Great Ride! – Women’s World

When June Cline was about ten years old her mama’s brother, ‘Uncle James’ picked her up, sat her on back of his bike and said, “Hold on!” Off they went! June was terrified, excited and hooked. She loved it! Unfortunately, at the end of that short ride, June’s mama was furious. “If I ever catch you on the back of a motorcycle again I’ll beat you half to death,” her mama admonished. “You can die on those things!” As a teen, June’s first boyfriend William had a bike. (A secret from Mama!) June would slip off, saying she was going to a girlfriend’s house. She’d hop on the back of William’s bike and they’d go all around town. Once she almost got caught when they pulled up to a traffic light only to see Mama’s car in the next lane. She hid her face, William turned at the light and they escaped the wrath of Mama. After high school June was busy with college, marriage, moving around the country and building a career, but she never forgot the thrill and vowed that someday she’d own and ride a Harley. When she was 53 she had an interesting opportunity. She and...
Krista Grotte … Nation’s Fire

Krista Grotte … Nation’s Fire

Tell us about this movie? It doesn’t seem to be just a biker movie? Nation's Fire is an Action/Drama that is very, very different than the stereotypical biker movie. Biker movies are most notably celebrated or de-celebrated as exploitation films, and this is where Nation's Fire is different. We have the action, drama, deaths, killings, drugs, and good vs evil; however, there are many elements in this movie that give it a beating heart. We all can relate to the struggles the characters face in this movie; whether you’re a diehard biker or have no clue what a "cc" is, you will relate. The beating heart in Nation's Fire is family, loss, strength, redemption, manly underground situations all while secretly celebrating a woman's true place in the biker community and every other community for that matter ... as I state in the movie, "Our men know we are ride or die chicks.” Nation's differs from typical exploitation films and societal stereotypes in that we, as biker women, we aren't victims, we have a voice, we use it, we love to celebrate our womanly curves AND we ride. We handle our jobs, kids, and family business. We treat others with respect,...

American Motorcyclist Association Announces Recreational Riding Department Manager

American Motorcyclist Association Announces Recreational Riding Department Manager

Heather Wilson to Work with Clubs and Promoters PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- Heather Wilson has been named Recreational Riding manager for the American Motorcyclist Association. Wilson, 24, will work with AMA-chartered clubs and promoters to organize riding activities for motorcyclists, including both on-highway and off-highway events. She joined the AMA staff in 2014 and previously served as associate editor and, most recently, as recreational riding and volunteer assistant manager. "I look forward to continuing to work with AMA-chartered clubs and promoters to expand the number of quality recreational riding events," Wilson said. "We're here to assist organizers with coordinating fun events for riders, whether it's a stop on one of our national series -- dual sport, adventure ride or Gypsy Tour -- or it's a local trail ride, poker run or other riding event." Previously, recreational riding was combined with management of the AMA State Chapters and volunteer program.   Wilson's changing role is part of a restructuring that will allow State Chapter Networks and Volunteer Manager Marie Wuelleh to expand her programs and create new opportunities for AMA members to get involved with the organization and their fellow riders. AMA State Chapter Networks provide a framework for maintaining and managing...
Las Vegas Motorcycle Hall of Fame Inductee – Genevieve Schmitt!

Las Vegas Motorcycle Hall of Fame Inductee – Genevieve Schmitt!

Can you even imagine the surprise and honor in receiving word that you are being inducted in the Las Vegas Motorcycle Hall of Fame? To top that off, how about adding to the fact that the other inductees are Arlen Ness, Dave Nichols, and Peter Fonda? Well, Genevieve Schmitt had that honor and was able to take some time out of her busy schedule to talk with me about that day – and her amazing history in the world of motorcycling! Susan: You’ve been a very strong advocate for women in the sport of motorcycling for many, many years. When did you get involved in motorcycling and why? Genevieve: I started riding in 1990. I was a producer, working for “Good Morning America” at the time. I was asked to do a story on women’s involvement in motorcycling. I did the photo shoot, saw all these women that rode in, and noticed that they all had a special energy and independence that I was seeking! I was 26 at the time, living in California, so I ended up taking the MSF class and became a rider after that! Susan: You left the tv aspect to do your own thing? How did that all...

Smokey Mountain Women’s Motorcycle Summit By Myra McElhaney   Transformational! Inspiring! Life changing! Amazing! These are some of the adjectives I heard as women were preparing to leave the Women’s Motorcycle Summit – Smokey Mountain Edition in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. The summit, held October 6 through October 8, was hosted by the Steel Horse Sisterhood Charities (SHSC), a recognized 501c3 charitable organization. SHSC’s mission is “to provide opportunities for women to develop and refine their skills while encouraging the art of women mentoring women and serving people in the motorcycle community.” After hosting several summits in the Rocky Mountains Joan Krenning, founder and director of Adventure and Lynn Martin, vice president of the SHSC Board of Directors wanted to bring the event to the Smokey mountains, too. About thirty women (and a few good men who love and support them) rode in from Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont and Wisconsin. From women in their early thirties to one in her mid-seventies and everything in between. Married, divorced, widowed and single. Women who had ridden for over forty years and women who had gotten their license just months ago. The...
