This week’s entry for Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge (CBWC) includes photos of things to drive.
Easy peasy. If you will forgive black and white photos of photos, I’m happy to share a few moments from my days as a leather-clad biker chick. I was born to be somewhat wild, always looking for adventure.
The motorcycle days came to an end in late 2009 and I eventually traded in motorized two wheels for leg-powered two wheels. While I miss the Harley and travel at times, I think I’m probably safer on the bicycle, moving a lot slower.

You look like you belonged. I love black and white photography it gives a whole new outlook.
Thanks Pam. I did like the leather biker chick look and having my own Harley. I felt pretty cool then. 🙂
Mary–you look like one tough mama–I love it. I rarely see females on bikes. Mostly guys either alone or with the woman hanging on behind them. I agree with Pam–the black and white looks so good.
Lois, I’d like to think I have a bit of toughness in me…learning how to drive a motorcycle in all sorts of situations, in good and bad weather. It was a time and experience that taught me a lot.
Black and white photography is my favorite. It seems to bring out the detail in everything.
Awesome collection of memories Mary! Looks like it was a blast while it lasted and yes, trading in for non motorized has added years to your mobility on wheels, no doubt. 😉
I did have memorable and fun times on the Harley, Cheryl, and saw parts of the country from a very different viewpoint. That part of my life I would never change.
That’s what it is all about. 👍🏻
I always enjoy seeing photos from your bikerchick days, Mary, especially knowing that you cruised into Wild Wonderful West Virginia. You had a good biker look going for you. Great choice for B&W photos. I do think your modern bike riding is likely safer, but probably not as cool.
Ha! Nope, a bicycle is not as cool as a Harley, probably because l would look rather stupid on a bicycle with a leather jacket. And it would be hot! Glad you liked the photos, Dan. There are many more where those four came from. 😎
I really like your “real life” photos for this week, Thanks so much 😀 I think you look good one any type of “bike” 😀 😀
Thanks Cee! I appreciate your positive thoughts about looking good. It’s funny…either way, there’s never anything you can do with “helmet hair,” which is definitely not cool! :-p
Loved this post and the beautiful B&W photographs! Now let’s find that ‘Born to be Wild’ song in iTunes… 😉
Thanks Herman! I have a CD of motorcycle mama songs somewhere in my collection. I may have to drag that out today and bring back a few memories. 🙂
Wonderful B & W images Mary and great memories – thank you so much for sharing xxx
You’re welcome, Xenia! I’m glad you enjoyed a blast from my past.
What a fun post to learn more about you, Mary J! Terrific photos. Hugs on the wing.
Thanks Teagan! Maybe I can come up with something else you don’t know about me in a more colorful post. 🙂
Great photos and a fun post! I like how you worked in the song titles so the tunes would be in the back of our minds while looking at the pics.
That song was in my head a lot during the biker days. Glad you liked the post, JoAnna!
I could never and highly admire your spirited sense of adventure 🙂
I enjoyed my time on the motorcycles, Joey, but I’ve never been sure where I found the courage to drive one. It must have been a buried need for speed. 😏
