“I Started riding at 16 when my parents put me through the CBT to give me more independence” Clare told MoreBikes.  “I was riding a Honda MT5! I Passed my test in 1994 at 17 and rode a Honda 250N Superdream Deluxe! That’s the important bit. Then I had a Suzuki XS250. Later, I sold the motorcycle and got a car. 20 years later with the kids grown up I started riding hubbies VFR 750. I swapped that for a Yamaha 650 Dragstar and a year or so later bought the Street Triple. To Gain confidence I joined Curvy Riders MCC and last year became regional rep for the Chester and Merseyside region”.

Where do you like to ride, and who with?

“I live in Wales with some amazing roads on my doorstep. I ride with my Hubby, or my best friend, who is also female and also belongs to the Curvy Riders MCC.”
