September’s Readers Rides: Michael and Lori


Age: 52
My older brother always rode a bike, then my sister started riding, so I thought I’d follow along and got a 72 Honda CB 100. That was the first motorized vehicle owned at 16 years old.  I love riding for the people you meet, and the code of the road. I now own the very first Aprilia, which was flown across Europe, to a dealership that was also the first to have Aprilias in Canada. My second bike was a 1996 Honda Shadow 1100, I restored from the ground up. As my dad would say,’ if you can’t fix it, you can’t ride it. During my riding years, I joined a riding group and came to  like the benefits that come with it such as charity runs, bike events, and our annual get togethers with other fellow members.


Age: 34

I’ve been riding for about 6yrs, on my own as I was always a passenger. Getting tired of waiting for someone to give me a ride, I ended up taking the Riders Course, which I encourage any motorcycle enthusiast to do. I ride a Suzuki GS 500F, as it suits all my needs of the road and comfort of the ride.

Being a Single Mom, I love to take my daughter out for rides, telling me she would like to be a dirt bike rider someday. Getting together with my other female rider friends, we travel country roads, from Toronto to the States side, meeting up with new and old friends and always finding roads untravelled.
