How long have you been riding a motorcycle? I’ve been riding motorbikes for just about 10 years…

How did you learn to ride? My boyfriend in college rode … which was a big part of why I wanted to date him I think =D He taught me to ride.

What was your first motorcycle? My first bike was Kawasaki EX-250 … I was bored of it after about two months though and got a Yamaha FZR-600.

How many have you owned? a lot… haha

Why did you want to ride a motorcycle? I’m not sure what it was that attracted me to riding. Something in the back of my mind just kept telling me I needed to do it.

Tell us about your riding.  Racing…

What advice do you have for women who ride or want to ride a motorcycle? If you want to ride … ride. Being a girl shouldn’t affect that decision!

What is the longest trip that you’ve taken on your cycle? Does the Daytona 200 count as a long trip?

Do you belong to any motorcycle groups? No groups per se … But I am a member of CVMA which is my local club for racing!

Do you have a favorite riding story? Any riding story that ends with me having a trophy in my hands usually is a favorite =D

What do you do when you’re not riding? Mainly think about riding…

  1. ..Silicon Implant!!

    Psst… nitpicking spelling alert… “My boyfriend in college road”- rode, surely?

    Sorry… it grated… 🙂

  2. Hooray for more lady racers!!

  3. I’m guessing that Melissa was attracted to motorcycle racing because somebody used some facsimile of the word “no” when she began her interest, and she (conscious or subconscious) took it on as a personal challenge; being of strong mind and will, who can excel in whatever she puts her mind to, being the super smart and capable woman she is. Probably traits she learned from her awesome dad.

  4. Im guessing that somebody used some facsimile of the word “no” when Melissa expressed her interest in motorcycles, and she is of very strong mind and will and took up the sport as a challenge to herself (consciously or subconsciously); being extremely smart and talented and capable of doing whatever she sets her mind to. A trait Probably shaped by a great dad, and awesome older brothers ; )
