8. Be humble. Showing off, hot dogging it, taking unnecessary risks, feeding your ego not only puts me at risk but others as well.

I ride a Spyder STS (two wheels on front, one in the back). It looks like a sportbike and rides like a touring bike. I love it, and I ride it to work most of the time.

I ride with all the gear, all the time, even on three wheels. I ride with groups, but I ride by myself. I carry, concealed, in case of trouble.

I'll be 60 this May, and like the country song, "My next 30 years," I plan on riding for a long, long time.

I give thanks before and after my rides. I pray for safe travels. And then we ride.

I ride with the local sportbike group, mainly with the new riders and often half of the group are women. Often the language is daunting that describes the technical aspects, riding lines, motor characteristics for different configurations, and handling characteristics of different bikes.

It takes a while to learn but many tune out and disregard as not essential, which it is for basic operation, but when you pick up the pace this information applies.

Many women put incredible pressure on themselves to succeed and the pressure hinders them actually learning as they are in survival mode instead of understanding a skill or concept and implementing in a structured manner. It just takes time and it's important to not feel like failing in the moment, a time scale is individual with understanding unique to each person.
