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.

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...

Have you ever thought that taking a motorcycle safety class could change your life? It did for Michelle Adams! A couple years ago Michelle was an army veteran working as a therapist and going to graduate school for an advanced degree in social work. Her boyfriend had moved and in addition to having a long-distance relationship, working and going to school, Michelle’s two beloved dogs had both been diagnosed with terminal illness. It was a rough year, to say the least! Michelle said she wanted to do something, “just for me.” She loved riding on the back of her boyfriend’s motorcycle but with him out of town she didn’t get a chance to ride anymore. Not only had she ridden on the back of her boyfriend’s bike for years but her best friend in childhood had a dirt bike so she’d ridden it, too. Michelle decided that her ‘just for me’ adventure would be to get her motorcycle license and buy a bike! Her first step was to take a motorcycle safety class.

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

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 boyfriend wasn’t around...

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.
