Hi Everyone, I relatively new to WA, and I live in the Lakewood area. I'm looking for people with sport or sport touring bikes to ride with. I also belong to South Sound Riders (SSR) and Biker Sisters. I was referred by Apex, since both my other groups basically ride cruisers only - but the people are SUPER nice. I'm most interested in improving my technical riding skills and of course, meeting people to ride with! I would love to eventually turn my 250 in a race bike, but that will a long time from now, since I haven't yet ridden track. I got my license in 2007 (same with my first bike, a 2007 Ninja 250 - liked it so much that when the new body style came out, I bought a second one). However, I've been around bikes almost all my life - but as the passenger. My first husband always had a bike and when I got a divorce in 2007, I decided that I was going to be the "driver" now and went out and bought a bike and got my license. I'm currently married and my husband rides too (he just got his license in March, so we're saving up to get him a bike). My husband is in the military, so we move around a lot, but hopefully we will be here for the next five years. I'm originally from CA, born and raised in Southern Cal, then moved to NorCal - the riding was GREAT there. So I'm not too used to all the rain and cold weather here yet. But I finally have rain gear now - yay! Anyway, nice to meet everyone and I hope to go riding with you soon! - Fishrscary P.S. I know I need a pic of me on my bike, but the only I have makes me look like a marshmallow from wearing so many layers (definitely not my best pic for sure LOL) - it was taken during International Female Ride Day, and it was soooo cold. It even hailed on us at one point. That was interesting though. That was the first time I had ridden with a large group.
