HOW DID YOU GET INTO MOTORCYCLING?
I am living in a beautiful country El Salvador, full of sun and perfect conditions for have a good riding, however, motorcycling was not so popular among the girls, so Motorcycling was a hobby or sport only for males. Despite the fact our country is so so beautiful but is very dangerous too. We are ranked among the more dangerous country in the world and travel alone or even walk on the street represent a imminent danger for anybody and for the ladies worst. So go to the university, take a coffee with your friend, go to your work, was a real problem for transportation. You may ask? Why not public transportation, well is easy to respond, we are really tried to be harassed by males in the auto buses and also to be assaulted by the gangs or other kind of criminals. At that time the situation was worst, public transportation strikes, some radical groups burned he auto buses and I couldn’t afford to buy a car, my family at this time has not the resources for buy me a car. I discover in the motorcycling a “secure” way to travel to my work, my university and came back home safe!. Motorbikes has given me the freedom and the way of don’t limit my dreams. But is not only my history, at that time many other girls was in the same situation like myself and the role of the woman in motorcycling start to grow and grow since 2013.
The security on the street is not the perfect one for a safe ride but is much better that the other scenario. We start to meet other ladies on the road and we started to be friends and show solidarity. Now the people on the street is surprised to watch us riding. We love to inspire other ladies in my country and we would like to help them to teach them how to ride and also to have a legal permission a safe helmet etc. We are starting and we have a lot for to do... Now we are in love with bikes and we start to ride for tourism, sharing more time with new friends in our club ( Shevar bikers ) and we started to follow woman in motorcycling FIM to know other histories of success, we are fans of Laia Sanz course en I liked Valentino a Lot. Motorcycling helped to me to make my dreams come true!
