Woman’s World_March 2019

Woman’s World By Myra McElhaney   Recovering, Riding and Raising Funds In her High School yearbook, Danielle Bosser Dahm had lots of comments from friends about her dark suntan. Tanning became an addiction for her. Not only did she enjoy the compliments on her skin tone, but studies show that tanning raises endorphins. Although she tanned easily, Danielle began tanning daily at lunchtime. She felt like it was a form of therapy from her teens into her twenties. Danielle and her Airforce husband, Chris lived in California until he was given orders to go to Germany. In 2000, she was a young Airforce wife with three children, ages eight, six and one-and-a-half. (She never tanned while pregnant, by the way) Danielle noticed a raised spot on her leg that eventually started bleeding. When a biopsy showed it was Stage 3 Melanoma, she was sent via Medevac to Walter Reed Hospital back in the states. There she was only given a 60 percent chance of surviving five years. Danielle underwent multiple surgeries to remove the tumor and lymph nodes then to reattach her thigh muscle. Chris was given a “Humanitarian Assignment” by the Airforce to be transferred to Tacoma, Washington so...

Bike Hero Not For Sale – Night Train

January is “Human Trafficking Awareness Month.” Meet Sally. Sally is a survivor of human trafficking. Yep! As an avid biker, she is one of us. An icon representing courage in the communities and people she touches. She is also a seasoned professional model who you probably have seen in biker-related media before. Sally is a true warrior. Her story and what she went through is gut-wrenching. I am privileged to be her friend. Sally is the mother to six children and a grandmother of two. She is currently Co-Director of “Fighting Against Trafficking Organization.” Sally also strongly focuses on her practice as a consultant championing the cause of victims’ rights of sexual crimes, domestic abuse, and violence against women and children. Sally recently won a supreme court case in South Dakota, making it case law across the country, thus giving victims of abuse who are able to prove they have long suffered and currently still suffer from their abuse, the ability to take their perpetrator to civil court for a jury trial and pursue punitive damages. If you voted in the last election, one of the issues to vote on your ballot was a direct result of Sally’s hard work...

“A Biker’s Love Affair: A Story of Salvation”

“A Biker’s Love Affair: A Story of Salvation”

“A Biker’s Love Affair: A Story of Salvation” By Dolores Elam A cancer diagnosis. A fire. The death of a beloved spouse. Anyone of these would be enough to make someone question their faith, but after experiencing all three in the past two years my faith is stronger than ever. I’ve claimed my miracle and every day I see the undeniable presence of God. It started on February 5, 2015, when my husband Wayne was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. I slipped my hand into his and squeezed as we walked out of the hospital. The doctors told us that Wayne had six months to live, and I only had another half a year to hold the hand of the man I loved. Faced with that terrifying reality, my faith kicked in and I claimed my miracle for Wayne. Two years later I was still able to hold his hand — Praise Jesus. By December 17, 2017, Wayne was in hospice care at home. That night my son woke me up. “Quick Mom, the house is on fire,” he hissed, terror in his voice.   We grabbed Wayne under his arms and escaped through a side porch, trying to...

SAFE ZONE Speed kills… and so does slow

SAFE ZONE Speed kills… and so does slow

As a motorcycle riding instructor, I follow the curriculum and never advocate speeding. As a street renegade rider and a realist, I realize that if you don’t speed at times, a vehicle is likely to run over your butt and your bike. In my dreams, I imagine a small town (with a name like Gooberville) where a biker can ride without feeling like he’s the last target at a gun range. But I live in South Florida, number one in road rage for the third consecutive year, where I count acceleration as one of the most important actions I can make to stay alive. Please don’t misinterpret my theory. I define acceleration as having enough bike power, whenever necessary, to get your hiney out of harm’s way. Acceleration and speeding differ in that you can increase your speed to make a cool maneuver to avoid a potentially dangerous situation, or create a safer place in which to ride. Riding at an insane speed is what some bikers do to rev up their Adrenalin and feel alive. They should have more sex to mellow out. Suicide bikers on crotch rockets running at balls-out speed do it for the thrill. They feel...
Look Ma, No Hands! – Women’s World Featured Article

Look Ma, No Hands! – Women’s World Featured Article

A Brief History I have a pretty healthy bucket list, and have done a lot of adventurous things in my life. I am no stranger to being wild. At 14, I shaved my head to solidify my distinction from the other social scenes in high school. I went on from there to cement a lifetime of operating outside the norm, living in squats and sleeping on filthy floors among rodents. Later in life, I crisscrossed the United States in vans and tour buses for years with 12 roving gypsy vaudevillians, performing in grand theaters and busking on the side of the highway for gas money. But in all my stages of life, in all my adventures, I never thought that one of my best adventures someday would be camping on a motorbike. Getting On I’ve been riding bikes and licensed since 1999. In art school my best friend and I had a bone to pick with the boys of this world and made it a point to do everything they did—and do it better. This included welding, fording, tattoos, big trucks, martial arts, and of course motorcycles. With the best of intentions we took the classes and I bought little...

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...

Number of Women Riders is Growing Recent Survey Shows Shift in Rider Demographics   Irvine, CA (PR Newswire) - According to a recent survey, nearly 1 in 5 motorcycle owners in America is now female, compared with 1 in 10 less than a decade ago, based on data accumulated by the Motorcycle Industry Council. In fact, the data suggest that women may soon comprise ¼ of total motorcycle ownership in the U.S., a major shift in motorcycling demographics. Among all age groups surveyed, women riders now make up fully 19% of American motorcycle owners. The survey showed the greatest growth among the younger generations, with Gen X women riders up to 22%, and Gen Y (Millennials) up to 26% female ownership. “As the number of Boomer and mature motorcyclists shrink and are replaced by newer riders, we could soon be looking at a solid 25% of motorcycle owners being female,” stated Andria Yu, MIC Director of Communications. “We’ve seen with our own eyes many more women riders- on the roads, on the trails, on the track, with families, at motorcycling events, forming clubs and just being a part of everyday group rides. Many people in the industry have worked some...
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...
