I don’t know what it was that got me falling madly and passionately in love with the idea. There I was, a little shy girl – with no desire to be seen and known but inside my mind were wild dreams, wild ideas and wild imaginations. Never would anyone imagine the things that came out of a 10 year old’s mind. Nothing to be afraid of!!!
It was at that tender age of 10, that I knew when I grew up I would own one. What was not to love above the way the Motocross riders spun their wheels, performed death-wish stunts, rode and curved around those bends with their knees touching the ground and what was not to love about those big mighty machines with their engines roaring like ferocious ghastly beasts.
What am I going on about? Well, MOTORCYCLES!!! It’s no secret that I am crazy about machines. There is a special place in my heart for Motorcycles or Motorbikes (if you may wish to call them). Infact it is so special that I took this love and swung into action and got one for my 35th birthday. Ladies and Gentlemen, meet my ride – “The Fortunate Stallion”.
“The Fortunate Stallion” is a BMW 650 CC engine motorbike that was manufactured in 2001. He is a blue and silver grey stud that stands at a cool 820mm and weighs 200kg (with liquids included). He is a 5-speed gear transmission typer bike; with a horse power of 50 at 6500 raves per minute. He runs pretty fast that sometimes I have to remind myself to slow down and not get carried away.
I plan to travel a great deal of East Africa on this bike. My first trip might be a round trip around Lake Victoria with stops at the major towns around Lake Victoria.
I’d love to ride with female riding groups both here and in other countries. I dream of riding for good causes and creating awareness. I hope to become a full member of the Uganda Bikers Association. I am looking forward to it all.
Why do I ride? I ride because it makes me happy!
