Two years ago, after a life changing event, I decided to make drastic changes. I realized that life is short and I needed to experience more of what life had to offer.
The first thing I did was take a motorcycle riding class and get my endorsement. Although I'd ridden dirt bikes as a kid, it had been nearly 30 years since I'd ridden. It was fascinating how much I'd remembered about riding!
I had been looking at Indian Motorcycles for months, and once I had my endorsement, I test rode two Indian models, a Chieftain Limited and a Springfield. Although I had intended to buy a Springfield, the test ride changed my mind. On December 26, 2018, I bought a 2017 Indian Chieftain Limited and I love it!!
In July of 2020, I won a $250 gift card from RideNow Chandler. Upon arriving at the dealership, I saw the most beautiful red, white, and blue 2020 Indian Scout. It was love at first sight! After four days of telling myself I didn't need a second bike, I bought the bike.
Being part of our IMRG group has been an amazing experience, and I've learned a lot about motorcycles and my Chapter colleagues. In fact, I recently joined the Chandler IMRG Chapter as well, after joining them for a ride. I really enjoy the spirit of camaraderie and friendship within the group and the freedom of the open road.
Since 2018, my motto has become: Life is short, buy the bike!
