I am still trying to find out what the trophy that Harley-Davidson gave to Ms. Vivian Bales says. I am doing an event and going as her and telling her story. I ride a Harley and I really need to know as soon as possible what was written on her trophy. Any help would be great. Just can't get a good enough picture to get close up to read.

Contact the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee. Perhaps they can help.

Vivian Bales Faison was my aunt, married to my mother's brother, William Faison. Not only was she a character, but she was very talented, and not just in the ability to ride a motorcycle. She had a dance studio in Albany, Georgia, where I took tap and ballet from her as a young girl. She was also a seamstress and made gowns for the Miss Georgia contestants, wedding dresses, and even men's tuxedos. She also adopted three children as she was unable to have children. She loved talking about her motorcycle trip even as she grew older. My husband took her for a ride on our bike when she was 86. She loved it. I was at her funeral and thanked all the riders who rode in the entourage. I am sure she was looking down and was very very pleased.

I'm currently doing my senior project for my business degree and happened to come across this wonderful article. Thank you for keeping alive women in history and motorcycles. It's a great read!

Wow! I really wish I could have met Vivian. What an inspiration! And I thought riding was biased against women when I started riding street bikes 22 years ago! Can't imagine the "little gal" comments she had to deal with.
