My kiddos think I am the cool teacher. I teach 4th grade math and science and I am the only one that rides at my school.

I ride to work two to three days a week with a 20-mile one-way commute. It is a wonderful experience. I learned to ride about few years ago and I love it! Sometimes I wish home was farther away. I own a Kawasaki 600 and riding gives time to just think about my day, time spent with my family/club, or nothing at all; just enjoying the ride. Ladies, it is a beautiful feeling to throw your leg across that machine and to know that you are doing something that is mainly considered to be manly, but you are all woman. Have a safe and happy ride!

Great stories and comments. I agree; there's nothing like starting and ending your work day with motorcycling. I ride a HD Street Glide with Vance & Hines pipes; not the quietest, but I "sneak" in to work around 7 a.m. I'm a physical therapist/department director at a senior community. I usually have some of the "guys" who live there meeting me. They love talking bikes and share their personal stories. The ladies always tell me to be careful and when my husband and I go off for a long trip, they all are praying for our safety. I remind them to watch out for all motorcyclists and I think my riding makes them more cautious drivers.

I ride almost daily from April to November and the occasional surprise warmer day in the other months. I ride full leather attire and boots; have a curling iron, make-up/touch-up stuff at work; and my professional attire in the saddle bags. One of the first days riding, I was parking and two of the younger staff came running out saying, "Joyce, we always thought you were a cool lady, but now, knowing you ride a motorcycle. Wow, you're really cool." Quite a treat to make an impression with the younger and older generations.

I've been commuting on my Harley-Davidson 1200 Sportster for almost two years now. I love it! I ride every day about 20 miles each way, but that includes a ferry trip. It's perfect because I am allowed first on and first off, never miss the ferry, save ferry fees, save gas, and get front row reserved parking at my crowded work lot. I wear Firstgear TPG pants and jacket. They are waterproof and perfect for all seasons, zip right over my work clothes with little wrinkling, and keep me dry in our notorious rain. I also wear a full face helmet, gloves for the season and riding boots. I wear a Corazzo underhoody when it's really cold. The only time I don't ride is when there is ice or snow. I love it so much that my hubby got jealous and learned to ride too.
