MoreBikes had a chat recently with Diane, who is medically retired, 52 and lives in Rugby. She rides a superb 1450cc fuel-injected Harley-Davidson FatBoy trike. Make sure you read all of this – Diane is an inspiration to us all…
How did you get into motorcycling?
Enjoy everything More Bikes by reading the monthly newspaper, Read FREE Online.
“I got into motorbikes at the age of 15 through dating a member of a bike club (he wasn’t that old!) and by the day that I turned 16 I was also a member and had my first bike on the road, a Kawasaki AR50.”
Where do you like to ride your trike, and who with?
“I love riding A or B roads just loving our countryside and do this by myself although I do also enjoy riding with friends and have many that ride motorbikes including my partner.”
What does your three-wheel bucket list look like?
“My bucket list is to ship my trike to New Zealand at the start of the UK Winter and spend 6 months touring both islands. I’ve backpacked round these and the roads are just incredible biking roads.
I love to travel spontaneously with my backpack with no definite plans and have travelled all over the World! I go to the gym regularly as body maintenance is a necessity for me as I had a motorbike accident whilst travelling Australia (1992) and came out of it with a paralysed left arm, major pelvic injuries, broken sternum plus lots of other less major breakages which took a ten year recovery to be fully back on my feet and in the saddle.”
