@pistonkristin shares her #meandmymotorcycle story
"My love for motorcycles runs deeper than I recognized until recent years. I got my first motorcycle when I was in single digits - no, not a real one - a wind up motorcycle that was gifted to me from my parents for Christmas because of an obsession with a movie called "The Mouse and the Motorcycle". Fast forward to about 3 years ago, after years of riding on the back... I finally got my first (real) motorcycle. This came at a time when I had just moved back to the East Coast of Canada to be closer to family through difficult times. After exploring BC, Alberta and some of Central America moving home wasn't exactly my idea of an adventure.... Boy, was I wrong. My first bike was modest, she was a 1980 Honda CM400T who I fondly referred to as "Rita" while exploring the winding backroads of New Brunswick and beyond together. Little did I know I'd soon learn of and become a "Lita" and my relationship with motorcycles (and so many other motorcycle-loving women) would evolve and deepen to a whole other level. After experiencing where I'm from on two wheels riding either solo, with my partner or with any of the incredible women I've since met through co-founding The Litas NB and The Backroad Ball, it's breathed new life into a place I was once so eager to leave and for that I am so grateful."

Unfortunately, today in New Zealand it is pouring rain, so we couldn't enjoy the party bottom of heart. However, after that we went to "Milford Sound" !! It's cruising with boat ⛵️ We could see some stunning view but always with heavy rain 😂
