Celebrating women in motorcycling- Damaris

As we await to commemorate the International Female Riders Day in May 5, 2018, we continue to celebrate women in motorcycling. Today’s Hadithi Picha feature highlights Damaris’ motorcycling journey.

Here is a snippet from the original blog post:

Damaris graces our fourth feature in our amazing photo series, Women and Motorcycles. She is one adventure loving lady and always up to trying out new challenging things. Her love for venturing into roads less traveled led her into the world of motorcycling. So far she thinks it is the best ride of her life yet. Let’s plunge more into her motorcycling world:

When did you start riding and what motivated you to take up riding?

I began riding in 2015. All along I was passionate about the two-wheeled automobile. However, I was drawn to them particularly because of the convenience that comes with them (read bodaboda). At this point I thought all bikes were like the conventional bodabodas until I met other bikers after my training. I realized there were beautiful beasts out there and this only fueled my urgency to ride.

How was the training experience?

I did my training at InkedBiker after coming across them on the internet. Training was amazing especially after I gathered enough courage to start riding with my feet up. The bike became so light and motion was so exciting. I especially loved it when Malibu (the lead trainer and founder) would just let me go on countless rounds around the training field.
