How long have you been riding motorcycles? How did you get started?
When I was a little girl, I adored foreign movies with female motorcycle riders. Blond hair that was visible under the helmet always excited me. I often imagined myself sitting behind the handle bars and still remember the adrenaline that shot through my veins after my first motorcycle ride with my uncle. It scared the hell out of me, so I forcefully shut my eyes to avoid looking at the road. It was so long ago, but It feels like it was just yesterday.
I bought my first bike somewhere at the end of 2008. It was a Honda CBR 600 F3. It was ugly, heavy and badly damaged after a crash. I remember the day I got to Germany from Poland to buy it. Basically, all I wanted to do was to check the condition of the engine to see if it was suitable for stunt riding. After I started the engine there was some smoke coming out of it so buying it became quite a risk.
I couldn’t afford anything at the time, so I just bought the best bike I could find. My attitude was “now or never!” I’ll never forget the look on all of the faces when I brought it home.
