Butterfly the Biker
Did you recognize the icon on the photo album index page? It's Vicki, my favorite character from the wonderful cartoon Rose Is Rose. I've put her on this page too, so you can see her in all her leatherbound glory.
According to artist Pat Brady, Vicki is "Rose's punk, biker alter ego. Sometimes a girl needs to get awayas a whole other person. Vicki doesn't have to make dinner or feed the cat, she just hits the open road... for a few minutes at a time."
I can identify with that. My own inner Vicki longed to learn to ride for many years, but circumstances never seemed to make it feasible. Finally, living in an area with lots of safe places to practice and with enough money to think about a bike of my own, I decided it was time to get off my behind and do it. I took the Motorcycle Safety Foundation's beginning rider course (highly recommended for new riders!), bought a small "learner" bike (a Suzuki GZ-250, if you're interested), got my motorcycle certification in November of 2001, and set a weekly mileage goal. And thus emerged... Bikerfly!
