Her Story. A series of blog posts telling the stories of 'women who ride' from all corners of the globe. We hope that by sharing these stories we can help encourage other women to build their confidence, learn from others and inspire others.
This month we have a story by Dani Hill, 31 years old, from Sydney, Australia. Dani has reconnected with motorcycle riding whilst seeking to get the most out of life.
We hope you enjoy her story!
From a very young age I can remember my Dad riding a motorbike, generally being awesome and having a badass attitude. I was taken in. I loved everything about bikes, the very smell of petrol brings back childhood memories. So naturally, as soon as I was old enough, I was on back of my Dad's motorbike.
To my mother’s delight I soon enough had my very first 50cc quad bike. I was a cute curly haired blonde little girl tearing it up with my Dad, and that is where this story starts... that ear to ear grin.
So, I now live in Sydney, and I’ve found myself in a good job, and living a pretty ridiculous beach lifestyle. Still I was missing something. That inner child was still screaming, demanding a bike. So why not?
I brought a Mutt Mastiff, which coincidentally Mutt Motorcycles are based in Birmingham, England where I’m from, so that was a nice connection to home.
I ride to have a connection with myself, to forget the white noise of the world. I ride because it’s bloody good fun, and so many people, so often are overtaken by adulthood and responsibilities, they forget they will soon be old and have so many missed fun opportunities. Money isn’t what’s important.
I see people though my line of work, when the outcome is bleak, and I often wonder if I’d have done enough with my life, did I say f*ck yeah enough?
My advice; do the things. Get the bike. Push your comfort zone. Have fun.
