Biker Girls and steel horse’s

Biker Girls and steel horse’s

While riding is often about independence, riders appreciate the community aspect. “It’s given me a sisterhood with a group of women that has changed my life,” Watson .

The evolving face of the Harley-Davidson rider now includes more women than ever — and they’re changing the perception of a “biker chick.”

From the moment they hit the road, with the wind at their backs and their hair flowing free, their minds are at ease.

“It makes my heart feel good,” Brenda Kuhl said.

“You get a lot of time to think and soul search,” Amy Price said.

“It’s as close to flying as you’ll ever get,” Anne Zube said.

“To me, it’s just a sense of freedom,” Amy Price said.

These women are part of a group called “Stilettos on Steel.”

“This is the face of a female rider,” Zube, the CEO of Stilettos on Steel told FOX6 News.

Tired of sitting on the back of a bike, they hopped on board their own bikes.

“It`s now women taking the handlebars, getting behind it, getting out of the passenger seat and really taking control of their destiny,” Zube said.

The group consists of women from all walks of life.

“We have business owners, homemakers, grandmothers, widowers. There`s something about having this common love and common passion that has just eliminated all of this indifference and really unified us,” Zube said.

The group is a sort of Harley sorority.

“We`re definitely embracing the female rider. We are encouraging a feminine group of women, women that want to be themselves or find themselves,” Zube said.

More than 80 women from across the state are group members. Stilettos on Steel is the largest all-female social riding group in Wisconsin.

“Stiletto women are not the women who ask if the glass is half empty or half full. We just want it refilled,” Zube said.

Zube got into riding four years ago after taking a rider’s education class. She never looked back!

“It was a milestone birthday in my life and decided I needed to make a change. The moment that you grab ahold of the handlebars and lift your feet off the ground, it will be crystal clear to you, whether or not you are supposed to be this bike,” Zube said.

Zube picked up a 2004 Harley softtail that she calls her “soul bike.”

“It really becomes a part of you and it`s something that you adore,” Zube said

Zube says it’s the metal, motor, heat and Harley that make her feel most like a woman.

“I think I felt really beautiful on my wedding day when I walked down the aisle, but I think I look the most beautiful when I`m on this bike,” Zube said.

It is a common feeling among these like-minded riders.

“I wanted my daughters to see that women can be empowered to do things like this and it`s a lot of fun and you don`t need a guy,”

The “Stiletto Girls” get together weekly. They wear pink bandannas and shirts. Flowers rest on their handlebars, and they have rhinestones on their pockets.

“We play hard, we ride hard, we work hard. Our passion is to spend as much time on our bike as we possibly can. When we come together, we talk about what we passed on the ride, whether it`s a beautiful countryside or a curvy road,” Brenda Kuhl said.

“Riding, motorcycling, what for many years was a very male dominating sport or hobby, is now, really…we are equally sharing the road with men,” Zube said.

The Stilettos on Steel will be promoting their riding group during Harley-Davidson’s

    The decibel quantities were thunderous; overpowering; shrieking and also excitement was contagious in helping the Isles lay claim your 2-1 cause while in the show. Through each individual bone-jarring, board-rocking hurt delivered via the Islanders — chiefly by it’s tough, powerful fourth tier — often the fans bellowed for additional. The exact intensity amplified with each individual alter, and also Islanders am not able to help but for gobble the vigor and act in response.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    Hey this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so
    I wanted to get guidance from someone with
    experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick
    heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!
