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 Nami, 36, from Tokyo, Japan.
Nami has only just started riding and has discovered a whole new perspective on the world that surrounds her.
We hope you enjoy her story, with special thanks to Google translate!
My name is Nami Migita. I am 36 years old. I live in Tokyo, Japan.
My job is a Japanese calligrapher (Shodo) and dancer.
The reason I wanted to ride a motorcycle is so I could discover the many places in Tokyo city that I don't know yet. I wanted to ride my motorcycle to places that I can't reach by train or bus.
I only recently got my motorcycle license in February 2021. After getting my license I was destined to meet my beautiful Yamaha SRV250S!
I fell in love with the classic design of this motorcycle at first sight.
I am very short, but I want everyone to know that even a shorter woman like me can enjoy life on a motorcycle.
Riding through the streets of Tokyo on a motorcycle has opened my eyes, the scenery I once knew now looks different in a fresh and new perspective.
I also love camping and nature. My goals for the near future is to go camping and touring trips with my bike, I think it will be so much fun and I can't wait.
In my hopes to encourage many other women, I started a new Instagram account about my moto journey. I also love to take photos of fashion and any excuse to photograph my motorcycle!
I want to continue to enjoy motorcycle life.
We would love to share your story!
No matter where you're from, what you ride, how old or experienced you are, we all share the same love of motorcycles!
Share your story.
