    Same here. We go to the Seattle Bike show MOST years. Think we missed it last year, only because I didn't hear when it was.

    How awesome! !!! Hats off to you. My husband and I ride a kawasaki drifter.. aka Indian replica, but I've never driven.. I'm like Kit... I grew up training amd riding equestrian. Funny how my husband is scared of horses and much as I'm scared of the idea of handling a bike.. I just enjoy riding on the back.

    I rode too, first Western - barrel racing, then switched to English - hunter/jumper. Then I turned 16 and my parents told me it was a car or we kept leasing the horse. I chose a car.
    I started driving motorcycles when I was 18. I started riding when I was 3. My dad used to sit us in front of him and ride us around the neighborhood. Something that would've ended him up in the slammer and us in foster homes now-a-days. LOL
    I'm a bit of adrenaline junkie. I think you have to be to own BBMs! LOL

    My hubby isn't scared, he's told me he rode some as a kid. I rode (showed/trained) for over 30 years. Started in 4-H then regional/zone, then breed.
    Started with ponies, then rode Appaloosas for a long time. Showed a friends paint for a year, and ended with QHs. Bred a few really nice horses.
    One of my sisters still rides on the QH circuit. Her older gelding is retired from showing, but I still ride him sometimes. She's got another gelding that is doing really well (just won several year ends) and she's leasing a mare that she bred to a GEORGEOUS stud, Machine Made (look him up!) That should be one AWESOME baby.

    How fun!!! I haven't ridden competively in years but on occasion will ride friend's horses..my husband went once.. so I wouldn't say scared.. but not as in tune with them as he is mechanical horse power! we bred Tennessee walkers.. they were about 16 hands and had the smoothest gate. It was more so English style with coats and riding pants with knee high boots.. so when I did go trail riding, I was always the odd one out in the English saddle.. that was my preference of saddle.. light weight, minimal and simple.. I miss it but we don' have the time or space for horses anymore.. I still keep touch with my old trainer who still keeps a barn full and trains still.. good times!
