Hi my name is Michele Donegan I'm 68 years old and just learning to ride a motorbike. I love it. I rode a scooter for many years and got it for my 50th.

I have 4 children, 2 step children, 11 grandchildren (10 boys and 1 girl). I'm a sculptor. I live in the desert in a remote mining town in Broken Hill, Australia. I got my gear from Moto Est. in Collingwood Melbourne Australia. (Except the helmet). I'm a member of the classic and vintage motor bike club in Broken Hill. My bike is a 1982 Yamaha 250. Very Ziggy Stardust.

Hi, I live in Caloundra, QLD, originally from Wollongong, NSW and I’ve been riding for about 4 years. It took me ages to learn and remember thinking when was I going to ‘get it’, and to enjoy the ride. 
Every ride now is fun, always learning new skills and love the looks being a female rider. 
My first bike was a Honda CB300 but cruising with guys on 1000cc sports bikes, when it was time to upgrade, I knew I needed a bigger engine and then saw this beauty. 
The gorgeous Triumph Bonneville. 
I have one son, he’s 25 years old…my first pride and joy. I’m a preschool teacher and this year my birthday falls on Mother’s Day AND I’ll be turning 50. 
Definitely smashing goals my way. 



• Age: 36
• Ride: 2010 Harley Wide Glide
• Location: Melbourne, Australia
• Offspring: One beautiful 15yo.
• Occupation: Making trouble at Moto Est.
• What Riding Means To You: My motorcycle is a holiday for me. Every time I jump on I'm escaping my stresses and actually taking in the world around me. 
My daughter has only recently shown an interest in bikes and I'm trying my best to brainwash her into getting a motorcycle addiction. Highlight of parenting was when she asked me drop her off at school on the Harley!
