Hi, I’m Karen and I live near Squires Café at Sherburn with my 13 year old dog and 2 cats.
I first got into bikes first in my mid 20’s when I worked in a local pub, and the landlord and his mates turned up on bikes for a ride out. I eventually blagged myself a pillion ride and fell in love (with biking).
I then pillioned for a number of years with my now former husband, but decided to have a go at taking my test after a friend passed hers. I finally got my full licence in April 2010 (and fell off 3 weeks later … another story). Not long after, I bought my beautiful Fazer – Talullah.
I separated from my husband in October 2011,and I decided I needed to find some folk to ride with. After a short stint of internet searching the Lippy Ladies MCC website popped up. In April 2012, after a bit of emailing and checking out the club on Facebook; there I was at a meeting. I signed up there and then, and I haven’t looked back since – except to do shoulder checks on some fantastic ride-outs!.
Through the Club I have met a wonderful group of like-minded ladies. We laugh, ride, eat (cake!) and generally don’t take ourselves too seriously.
I’m brand-new, out of the box (in more ways than one – ed ;o), to this rep thing, and I am really looking forward to meeting lots more fantastic Lippy Ladies and planning some great rides and events for us all to participate in.
