I started with Two Wheels at the end of May 2015 and works in the Edinburgh Triumph Showroom. I have been riding motorcycles since the age of 16 having purchased a Honda CB50J, (Northumbria Council kindly tried to curtail my social life, by removing our bus route). I found I loved motorcycling and had the bug. Used to do all my own maintenance in those days. No Electronics! Progressed to a dalliance with Kawasaki in the mid to late eighties. KH100 EX, Z200, GPZ600 and ZX10. Moved abroad & came back to Scotland took up Teaching and competing in Dressage, Team Chasing and Ladies Side Saddle on horse back. I purchased a Honda from David Lawson having had a lesson to update me on UK roads from Two Wheels Training School in the snow. Started taking my kids pillion when they were about seven, which they both loved, a great way not to have to give up for me & cured eldest son's travel sickness, a win win for all. My other half purchased a Triumph Sprint which we both loved, whilst I also had a BMW R1200 ST, yes the ugly one as Neil calls it, (I prefer quirky!) I still have it and have also purchased a Tiger 800 XCA which is turning out to be a great bike and ideal for my two miles of daily off road commuting before heading on to the bypass, plus it's versatile for long distance motoring with great luggage capacity.
Starting with Two Wheels is a big learning curve that I am enjoying, learning all the specifications on the range of Triumphs that is growing almost daily and knowing all the accessories for each. My previous background was in airfreight sales for years, latterly going freelance whilst taking a short time out on a dream house build. I am a member of the Curvy Motorcycle Club which started out to help other Women get the confidence to take up motorcycling. I have made some great friends & now the range of bikes and clothing has come on enormously for women and is one of the fastest growing areas for motorcycle sales. (The Curvy MCC is now the fastest growing motorcycle club in the UK for Women).Back to the team
