The Future of Motorcycling Part 1
Ride Like a Local finished up their interview with Erin and Lauren of Litas Calgary chapter.
Renee asked them if the had a bucket list, where would they be in 5 years.
Erin states she will be travelling. But within that 5 years she would like to see more empowerment of women as a collective.
Lauren states within 5 years she would like to see an attitude where all are welcome. She would like women to feel the sisterhood and be a part of the riding family.
Next we spoke with Isabella. A feisty and sweet 7 year old that loves the Litas. She says her mom is a Lita and her mom says the Litas will be a very good place for her when shes older!
It was time to speak with Rob. Rob is a 25 year old man working at Heritage Harley Davidson on the South side of Edmonton AB. Rob has been riding for about 10 years now, and says he was inspired by his dad. His dad had a bike and together the toured all over the place including British Columbia.
Working at Harley Davidson has given him perspective on the different types of riding and the different styles of bikes and how each one rides differently.
He says his generation is different than that of the older generation. The younger generation, speaking only for himself, still feel they have a lot to prove. To ride fast and to be a biking bad ass.
The older generation don't have anything to prove as they have already been there and done that. Now it's time to sit back and enjoy the ride.
Both generations still have that sense of adventure and every age loves the comrade of the community.
If you are blessed enough to live where you can be riding today, please remember to ride like everyone around you is blind and can not see you.
