Bessie Stringfield fought for civil rights and equality by doing what she loved despite the struggles and danger that came with riding motorcycles.
DualSporty Go Boom
Caroline’s Sporty just punched me in the face.
A whole shop of people just watched me, and it, topple off the stand. Don’t worry… I broke it’s fall with my face. No damage… and better tie downs now. Won’t be happening again.
That’s what I get for not asking for help- I needed another hand on the shift lever so I could figure out positioning. Instead I carefully leaned over (or so I thought) to twist the bolt by hand and… oh oh oh the bike started to tip and all of a sudden I was falling head first toward the next motorcycle lift. Yes I’m fine, I hit my nose on the other bike, and the Sporty landed on my head. Bruised, probably going to have a shiner, but totally okay.
If any of you ever have anxiety about looking like a fool working on, around, or riding motorcycles.. Just remember this moment and laugh at me.
That is all.

I love the passion of custom bike builders – mainly because I wish i could do what they do :). I’ve saved this post under “Motorcycle Inspiration”
