Connecting Your Profession and Your Passion – Born To Ride Women’s World

Kelly Vandever enjoyed riding on the back of her husband’s bike, but on a beautiful July day when she wanted to ride, her husband Rich, was out of town. That’s when she decided to learn to ride her own. Her first bike was a Honda Rebel she now rides a Harley-Davidson 883 Sportster Superlow. Since Rich likes to tinker with bikes, he made sure she had a comfortable seat and an easy clutch. Her first long trip with Rich and their friends Jim and Stephanie was quite an adventure! When they started out riding from Georgia to South Dakota, his clutch started slipping. Later the valve stem of his rear tire had to be replaced. In Missouri, Stephanie got a flat tire. A local guy helped but bent the tube in the process, so it went flat again. In South Dakota, Kelly and Rich got separated from their friends. When they reconnected, Jim had hit a coyote and had fur stuck in his wheel rim! In January of 2018, Kelly entered a contest to be the social media spokesperson for a motorcycle attorney. She was one of six finalists. The gal who won was an MFS instructor and that got...
Fall Weather Riding Tips

Fall Weather Riding Tips

Fall has arrived in the Southlands! Here are a few tips to keep you safe:   Know your skill level: Riding a motorcycle is a physical and mental skill and can diminish if you haven't ridden in a while. Take so time to get reacquainted with your bike if it's been some time since your last ride.   Hazard Awareness: Your nice relaxing ride through the country should be fun but you must maintain a constant state of awareness. If you try to identify every hazard you see when ride, there will not be any surprises. When identifying potential hazards, there are no wrong answers. Call out everything: driveway, intersection, children, dogs, parked cars, oncoming line of cars, blind curve, deer, gravel, construction, potholes, etc. This exercise will both help you prepare and force you to scan beyond your normal boundaries. Also keep in mind that it is getting dark much earlier, and both you and the other vehicles on the road need to adjust to the time change.   Wet Weather: If you ride a motorcycle, you are going to get wet. Riding in the rain can be done safely if you follow a few simple rules. Keep rain...
Creating a National Motorcycle Flashmob of Lifesaving

Creating a National Motorcycle Flashmob of Lifesaving

Following a visit to our headquarters by Ken Engelman, I reached out to BTR. Ken, who is an American, was on a tour around Israel to see how the country uses and works with motorcycles to respond to medical emergencies. He was very impressed with our operation and suggested that I reach out to Born To Ride. After looking at your website and online media, I thought that this would be a terrific place to tell the story of how motorcycles are used to save lives here in Israel. United Hatzalah’s motorcycle responders are Israel’s most active volunteers. We come from all backgrounds and religions to provide the very first response to medical emergencies across the country. While some of our men and women only began riding later on in life, their mission to save lives, combined with the need for speed in shaving off response times and the simple enjoyment of riding a motorcycle combines to make all of us riders simply born to ride. I am thankful that you are helping us spread the word. Hopefully, we’ll be able to bring our model of lifesaving to other locations as well and help more people. Raphael Poch   When...

Jamie Astudillo in MotoAmerica Not many females currently run professionally in motorcycle road racing, but those who do, have definitely earned their place. Here in the States, in MotoAmerica, there are only three—Caroline Olsen in Supersport 600, Melissa Paris in Stock 1000, and Jamie Astudillo in Liqui Moly Junior Cup. And of these, only one has rewritten the record books—Jamie Astudillo. We pointed out in our May issue that Jamie etched her name in the MotoAmerica/AMA Road Racing archives as the first woman to ever podium in an American professional motorcycle road racing event when she took third place in race 2 of the season opener at Road Atlanta. Riding for Quarterley/On-Track Racing, Jamie has consistently stayed in the points chase, racing in the top 10 across the first portion of the season. Jamie is “running with the big boys,” and challenging for the front in every race. We had the opportunity to catch up with Jamie at the Road America round in Wisconsin, close to mid-season, and spent a few minutes discussing her life and racing. We found Jamie to be a winsome, enthusiastic, warm personality off the track, and a joy to converse with. Yet underneath the “typical...

Born To Ride Women’s World Open Road Girl-Myra McElhaney, Story By: Myra McElhaney

Riding My Own By Myra McElhaney When I first met my husband Phil, I was excited that he had a motorcycle. I loved riding with a neighborhood guy during high school and looked forward to being on back of a bike again. Phil had a Yamaha 650. He later upgraded to a Goldwing then eventually a Harley-Davidson Tour Glide. We loved riding in the mountains of North Georgia on weekends and occasionally we’d take a longer trip. We rode and camped with another couple on the Natchez Trace. A few years later, with the same couple, we rode from Atlanta to Niagara Falls and back. Along the way we stayed in Bed & Breakfast and quaint hotels, stopping to see sights along the way. Touring around the country was exciting but Sunday afternoon rides in the mountains, with just the two of us, were my favorite. In 2007 Phil was diagnosed with a glioblastoma brain tumor. After a year of radiation, chemo and surgery he was able to get back on the bike. We took a weekend motorcycle trip to Ashville, NC with two other couples. It was wonderful to be riding together again. Sadly, the cancer returned soon after...

Smokey Mountain Women’s Motorcycle Summit By Myra McElhaney Photo Credit Ken McCurdy 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 6th through 8th, 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...

Make It a Great Ride! By Myra McElhaney 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...

Riding Fearlessly By Myra McElhaney Sandy Weaver rode on her brother’s dirt bike when she was a kid. When riding at the dirt track with the boys she hit a patch of sand and dumped the bike. Her dad rescued her, and despite the fall she still thought riding was cool! At age nineteen Sandy moved to Washington, DC where she had a sports car and sometimes rode on back of a boyfriend’s bike. She really wanted to drive her own! When that boyfriend was history and she was just about to buy a motorcycle, Sandy met a new man. A man who didn’t like motorcycles! Somehow despite that major flaw she ended up marrying him. With motorcycle riding on the back burner, Sandy was busy building a career in radio. Having started at the small, local radio station in her hometown of Columbus, Georgia, she moved to Boston, MA, Arlington, VA and Washington, DC. Sandy worked her way up through the ranks as an assistant program director, promotions assistant, mid-day and afternoon drive time on-air personality, music director and on to morning show host. While rising through the ranks in radio, Sandy was very involved in another hobby that’s...
THE WOMEN’S COALITION OF MOTORCYCLISTS (WCM) ANNOUNCES THE “SJ” HARRIS LEGACY FUND

THE WOMEN’S COALITION OF MOTORCYCLISTS (WCM) ANNOUNCES THE “SJ” HARRIS LEGACY FUND

The Women’s Coalition of Motorcyclists (WCM) is dedicated to doubling the number of female riders by 2020. In pursuit of this goal, we have teamed up with SJ’s management team Threader 24 Racing and Porsche Taylor for Black Girls Ride Magazine to create the SJ Harris Legacy Scholarship Fund. Joi “SJ” Harris, was the first African American female licensed by both the Champion Cup Series (CCS) and the American Sportbike Racing Association (ASRA) in the United States. She lost her life shooting a scene for the upcoming Deadpool 2 film. SJ Harris was a brilliant and fierce rider who set an example for young women everywhere. She took time out of her busy schedule to speak to and train female riders, to help them learn about safety and encourage them to live their dreams. When the opportunity arose for her to participate in the Deadpool 2 film, it was a dream come true, so she was off to Canada to fulfill that dream. To let her example live on WCM, Threader 24 Racing and Black Girls Ride Magazine established a scholarship program to commemorate the legacy of SJ Harris. The scholarship fund will be used to help increase the number...
