Motorcycle Girl | Julie Matthews
Julie had always been a Motorcycle Girl.
The feel of the wind in her hair, the vibrations coming from the seat, and the freedom to go wherever she wants. The secret to happiness is freedom. And the secret to freedom is courage. The dangerous life of riding is both freedom and courage.
She wasn’t always a rider, but she was attracted to danger and free flowing hair surfing through the wind and mosquito air. She was afraid of danger, but loved the dangerous privilege of reign.
A few years later, she got her first bike, which was a Honda VFR.
She rode on all the trails, but that wasn’t always around her as she was a city girl growing up in Northern California. To ride freely, she had to escape into the dirt a few hours away, where she can be totally free of the city lights. She quickly learned how to handle the beast and the art of riding and is a natural. She loved every minute she spent on the bike.
Julie loved the wind in her face,
the hair that escapes from her dew rag blowing into tangles and knots. The best smell was the smell of her first ride in the spring, the muddy earth, the new grass and the crisp air. She rode city to city, dirt to dirt traveling to different landscapes. The views that seems so different when metal and window cease to impede the surrounding view.
She wasn’t always that brave.
Before she was aware of the allure or the feel of a rumbling iron horse beneath her backside, Julie was afraid to lose her young life riding briefly behind her man’s back seat, just feeling her life silently flash on by.
A few rides on her new Honda VFR, she was left feeling a thrill for life without handle bars. The biker girl callouses on her butt were starting to form like all the hot biker girls in town.
Don’t make things too complicated
Each beginning of spring, Julie engaged in interesting travels that dragged through the end of summer which created new end of summer quotes. Up and down the Northern California coast, Half Moon Bay by the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay and Sonoma to Bodega Bay.
Just living is not enough...one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower. I’ve learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter path. Transforming fear into freedom, how great is that? My last few words were inspired by Soledad O’Brien.
Julie Matthews is a motorcycle girl,
a special love.
She lives in a beautiful city, take rides in the middle of the countryside.
She disappears off in her bike for hours, because its a wonderful way to relax. Don’t make things too complicated, try to relax and enjoy every moment,
getting use to everything. So get use to falling off your bike.
