I know Christine from the Yoga group. As the slender (read between the lines in my mind “not able to handle a huge motorcycle” boy was I wrong) and calm Yogi.
We got to talking one day and she told me she was working on a fundraiser for the local Honda Gold Wing club. I volunteered to help her and signed up as her assistant for the silent auction.
Turns out Christine is the owner of the Honda Gold Wing parked in front of her house and a regular rider. Believe me she can handle her motorcycle! Here is a picture of her in her vest at the fundraiser. The picture of the front of her vest is missing from my photo library (I am such an amature took several pictures which are now evaporated) so until I can get another you will have to wait but she had what I thought was a ton of pins and patches on the front of her vest until I saw some of the other vests that night! (Christine really has a mind-boggling amount of pins and patches but she is still a pup and it is not extreme yet😱)
Christine is the Individual of the Year for Chapter E of Region F of the Gold Wing Road Riders Association, an International Association with members world wide.
When Christine was growing up her dad was an instructor for the California Highway Patrol in the 60’s. She has been around motorcycles her whole life and really enjoys owning a Gold Wing. She and her dad have had some adventures with their Gold Wings and I am looking forward to meeting him and hearing these unusual father – daughter stories.
I think they would both tell me that Christine’s true identity is: Christine the Honda Gold Wing Rider practices Yoga.
