aka "Skert"

I started riding motorcycles in ’94. I have ridden over 200K miles on BMW’s. I got the Iron Butt fever in 1995 while listening to this guy tell of the Iron Butt Rally over a camp fire at Daytona bike week. I had already been riding long distances to get to rallies in my short little weekend hours. Next thing I know I am competing in Long Distance Endurance rallies. I made it into the 2000 ButtLite and by skin of my teeth made it into the 2001 Iron Butt Rally. The first day of the 2001 Iron Butt, I turned 50. It is all history and on my web site. I have calmed down a bit on the LD riding, but have continued to blast to upstate NY from GA to do my dropped bike demo at Americade every year and around the country for the BMW Nationals.

I was so inspired by other women at a BMW National Women Who Ride seminar. Listening to other ladies made such a difference in how I perceived riding instructions. I immediately went into action to spread the word to other ladies about sharing our knowledge. I have continued to host Women Who Ride seminars at most every rally I go to.

I saw an easy way to pick up my bike when it fell over and vowed to share this simple technique with anyone who would listen. I have a web site that is used all over the world in teaching anyone how to pick up your bike. It is on the AMA web site. I encourage anyone to copy my tech page and share it with their clubs. If I can’t make it to a rally I give a volunteer the instructions over the phone and internet. This is all about sharing and teaching.

TREDS Overboots

A Diva Review…

What are people saying about TREDS
Despite California’s beautiful weather and almost perfect riding conditions – – you will ultimately find yourself at one point or another in rainy weather. After going through several pair of riding boots, I have finally found a comfortable pair that fit my riding style. Needless to say, they are not waterproof but none the less my favorite.

On long run’s, I like to be prepared for any weather conditions that might arise. I often carry wet and cold weather gear, which now includes “TREDS”.  TREDS fits right over my favorite riding boots with no hassle and without the extra bulk.

TREDS Overboots are extremely durable and uniquely designed to help provide the added traction needed when riding in rainy weather. They are easy-on, easy-off and absolutely waterproof. Light and flexible enough to carry in your sidesaddle.

“TREDS – Don’t leave home without them.”
