The Future of Motorcycling Part 2
At the Calgary Motorcycle Show, we met with Amanda Dobby. Amanda is 33 and one of the co-founders of The Litas. Wearing a beautiful nose brace from hitting the handle bars on her dirt bike, Amanda showed up as she was not willing to miss the Calgary Motorcycle Show!
Amanda has been riding a street bike since she was 18 (around 15 years). She now rides a Harley Nightster 1200. This is her 5th bike and since she originally started with sports bikes as a broke student, she absolutely adores her Harley.
Amanda is a adrenaline junkie. She always rode with her brother, behind him on his bike. She always new she needed her own bike so she could be in control. As a yoga instructor, she finds riding a form of therapy and meditation. It is a liberating and empowering feeling especially being a woman.
She says that even with the age gap between different riders they always find something in common. The riding community is always inviting and welcoming so that you may meet many different types of people but the all have a common connection and passion.
She also states some important rules that The Litas always follow.
- Ride within your means.
- Always be safe.
- Know basic bike maintenance.
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.
