Paramedic Aby, 28, lives in one of the most ideal places for motorcycling in the UK – Cumbria. Let’s see what she had to tell MoreBikes, for the Ladies Who Ride motorcycles feature…
What bikes have you got and how long have you been riding?

I’m 28, but have been riding for 20 years! I currently own: ER6F, CBR600 F2, ZRX400, KLX250!
Wow, that’s quite a collection, and quite lot of experience for a 28 year old! How did you get into motorcycling?
My dad! He has that many motorbikes in his garage we’ve lost count – and sight of some of them! My grandad is 87 and he still rides his motorbike too. We had a small 50cc Honda when we were little, we’d take it away camping with us, my brother and sister and I would take it in turns playing on it, and the bug began!
Where do you like to ride, and who with?
My dad, he’s always up for a zoom around somewhere. My dad’s partner also has a bike and she’s up for a ride too. My brother, he has a ZXR400 that he let me borrow for a trackday – I was honoured!! My boyfriend Tom, we always have trips out on our bikes. He has a GS750 and is trying to persuade me to come to the dark side! My mum has come on the back a few times. My best mate got his licence too, so there’s always someone to go for a ride out with!
We live in the lakes, so there’s always gorgeous places to go and explore. Usually where there is also ice cream. Coincidence…
What’s your two-wheel bucket list look like?
Too many to mention. But! favourites: Route 66 in USA. Round trip of UK coast line. Track days. Being able to wheelie! And – be able to do a burnout…
What else do you get up to outside of motorcycling?
Exploring forests, castles and anywhere historical, gardening, baking and running!
Thank you Aby!
