So last fall I bought a motorcycle, a Triumph Bonneville. I have always dreamed of owning a Triumph and my husband was so supportive of me buying one; I was going through some major postpartum anxiety and self confidence issues. So he encouraged me to take the Basic Rider Course and I quickly fell in love. I have learned so much about myself from being on my bike. Even though I am still very new and nervous when riding, there is such a great feeling of freedom and confidence I get just from an hour or two alone with my motorcycle.
So the idea for this personal project was born. I wanted to photograph other mothers who ride, to document them and talk to them about their experiences; and all on film. This is the first of many sessions, my friend Cori, who is a new rider too. She says, “it’s fun, relaxing, a stress-relief, just me & my bike, and the road.”
know any other bad-ass mothers who ride motorcycles? you know what to do… firstname.lastname@example.org
