Building a Life You Love AFTER Losing the Love of Your Life

Building a Life You Love AFTER Losing the Love of Your Life

There are so many of us that have lost people close to us. From a spouse, partner, best friend, and family, it doesn’t seem to get any easier. I had the pleasure of speaking with Myra McElhaney who many of you have read her articles in Born To Ride magazine. Well, we are turning the tables and interviewing her about her successful book, “Losing the Love of your Life.” Why did she decide to write this book? “It’s been 10 years since I lost my husband. At this stage in life, I’m meeting more and more women who have lost their spouse. In fact, in the past four months, two of my very close friends just lost their husbands. It seems never-ending.” For many years, Myra had been a corporate trainer, public speaker, and writer. “The articles that I wrote were specific to the groups I worked for. I also participated in compilation books where groups of people write specific chapters for the book. I had participated in these compilation books but had not written a “real” book of my own. After my husband died in 2009, I had been thinking about writing a book about women in business. Once...

Desiree Colonna The Healing Road   By Myra McElhaney At age 45 when Desiree Colonna lost her husband to suicide and was left with two teenage girls to raise, she felt lost. Reminded of her how she loved riding on her brother’s motorcycle as a teen, she took the MSF class to do something she’d always wanted for herself and to give her something new to focus on.   She passed the class the first time but wasn’t comfortable with the clutch and gears she signed up again. The instructor took extra time explaining that to her to make sure she got it.   Proud of learning to ride, Desiree bought a big Harley-Davidson Switchback. A big bike for a beginner. She dumped it on her first ride and had to have someone else drive it home. She bought a Yamaha VIRAGO 250 and rode it around her neighborhood to learn. Her next bike was a Moto Guzzi V-7 Racer. In 2018, when Triumph introduced the Bonneville Speedmaster, she purchased the second one sold in Georgia. Although she still owns and sometimes rides the Moto Guzzi V-7 Racer she considers the Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster to be ‘her’ bike.   When...
There’s More to This Girly-girl

There’s More to This Girly-girl

Lisamarie Garcia On the cover of Born To Ride – May 2019 Issue #180 we featured Lisamarie Garcia, a realtor, female rider and member of Stilettos on Steele. Her story was interesting, her motorcycle was intriguing, and her career with McPeak Real Estate Firm successful. After her story took off, she became even more successful and that’s when we found out there was more to this gal that makes her and her bike shine! Much more. So here she is again, with more to the story that her raving fans are telling us.   Every day we hear about successful women that break glass ceilings. What we don’t hear about is the battle they go through to be successful. From an early age, Lisamarie fought that fight and continues to strive for more every day.   “My name is Lisamarie, and I’m 35-years-young. All of my life I’ve heard 'You’re too girly to do that' way more times than I care to mention. Lately, I feel like all I do is prove those words wrong, and I love it! Not too long ago, I was a stay at home mom without even a driver’s license. Riding on a motorcycle never...

Boaterz ‘n Bikerz of America Unleash the Dragon’s Roar

Boaterz ‘n Bikerz of America Unleash the Dragon’s Roar By Wanda Kenton Smith   In May, a group of 36 boating industry execs and friends gathered from eight states in the Great Smoky Mountains to celebrate our love of boating and motorcycling as part of the fifth annual Hull of a Tour series, with this year’s theme aptly dubbed the “Dragon’s Roar.”   The week-long adventure followed four previous national events including the original Hull of a Tour, a 3,000-mile cross-country ride from Florida to California; the Freedom Ride, from Florida to Washington DC including participation in Rolling Thunder; Pacific Coast Rush, from Seattle to San Francisco; and The Lobster Roll, featuring four New England states.   The unique aspect of our tour is we combine a taste of boating infused with a steroid injection of motorcycling to whet the appetite and unleash the spirit of our riders. Besides experiencing some of the best roads in the nation, we’ve enjoyed chartered harbor cruises in San Francisco and Newport, RI, toured regional hotspots in sexy sport boats, taken a sunset toast aboard a 90’ houseboat in TX, and watched a command performance of the Blue Angels aboard a fleet of Freedom...

Women’s World By Myra McElhaney Highrise Harley After spending most of my life on the back of someone else’s bike; I got my license and bought a bike at the ripe old age of 59. When my husband died, I missed him, and I missed riding with him. One of those things I could change! Learning to ride had to be easier than finding another good husband with a bike! At first, I just wanted to learn to ride. I didn’t know if I’d ever get a bike of my own. I just couldn’t see how it would fit into my lifestyle. After my husband passed, I’d moved to a high-rise condo in Atlanta. Not exactly where you want to ride a motorcycle! I fell in love with a red Harley-Davidson Softail Slim. I had it delivered to a friend’s house in a small nearby town. We would coordinate our schedules; I’d drive an hour to her place then we’d ride our bikes for an hour or two and I’d drive the hour back. As soon as she got her license, my friend was ‘riding it like she stole it’ as they say. It wasn’t so easy for me. It...

Hey there Biker Family! I’m Wendy LaForce, Sun Coast District Coordinator for Stilettos on Steel Female Riders Group and Born To Ride/Women’s World Public Relations/Good Will Ambassador. Here’s My Harley Story. I’ll be celebrating my 5th year of riding coming up in September. I completed my motorcycle endorsement class at Jim’s Harley-Davidson in May of 2014 without ever riding a motorcycle before. I saved my pennies for a few months and bought a 2003 HD Hugger Anniversary Sportster. I was fortunate enough to have some amazing friends that helped me learn how to ride. Special thanks to Lynne Kottke for your guidance over the past 5 years. You have helped make me the rider and leader that I am today. I rode that Sporty for a year then traded up to a 2014 HD Street Bob in 2016. I also started a local chapter of Stilettos on Steel Female Riders Group in 2016, which has grown to over a hundred members in several chapters. In 2017, I upgraded yet again and bought a 2016 Fatboy Lo from Josephine Carter at Bert’s Barracuda Harley-Davidson. With the help of Ted Brodene and Spinwurkz Customs, my Fatboy Lo is now a custom bagger....

Katy O. Ishee Road Rash ‘N Road Tales By Myra McElhaney   Katy Ishee (pronounced “Is she” like is she coming or is she going?) is known in riding circles by her nickname “Krazy” and has lots of stories where she’s lived up to that name! (Like crazy fun and audacious.) As a young married woman, riding on her neighbor’s Vespa sparked a desire to ride. After divorcing, in 1974 Katy bought a 1967 R69S BMW which she still rides. In the early days of riding, Katy was often the only woman riding her own in the motorcycle clubs she hung out with. She won “Most Unusual Field Event” at a Bike Party where she drag-raced several guys and beat each one. The last run ended with her smashing into the fence only to get up, covered in mud, and get back on her bike. Described as a “free-spirited gypsy” she’s zigzagged across the country living in Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Arizona, Tennessee, and South Dakota. Some of those states more than once. She has a motorcycle license in five states. In the early 1980s when M*A*S*H was a popular TV show, Katy toured as a “Hot Lips Houlihan” lookalike,...

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...
