My name is Joanne, I am originally from the UK, now living in Sydney, Australia.
I am a corporate slave during the week and a Ducati Monster lover by the weekend. I started riding at 41, in December 2014, when I took my pre-learner test and bought a second hand Kawasaki Ninja 250.
I am now the proud owner of Rita, a red Ducati Monster 821. Her and I, and my much-more-experienced travel companion/ partner, Gary, are learning all about the world of short lady riding and exploring as much of the real world as we can.
I’m don’t have lots of time to dedicate to this activity but I enjoy it when I can and believe that a balance of interests is healthy. On top of motorbike riding I enjoy scuba diving, cooking, travelling/exploring, skiing, keeping fit, tennis and trying new things. Pretty much the only thing I don’t like is raw celery because that’s just wrong.
For reference, I am 161cm, 5’3” with an inside leg of 27 inches.
