Welcome everyone and thanks for checking us out. My name is Rosa and I am originally from Brescia, Italy. This group, and the group's name, were born out my love for riding under the light of the moon. But of course, I also very much love riding during the day!
Since I was new again to riding, after a 30 years' break (and certainly new to riding in California, as my previous riding experience had been in Italy) I decided to found a group that would become a welcoming and creative space where like-minded companions would join me in the motorcycle riding adventure.
Wendy, our assistant organizer, arrived shortly after and has been an invaluable asset, with her steadfast commitment to the groups' growth, and help in organizing and hosting rides and tending to the website's needs.
We love to ride to beautiful locations, as well as taking local rides downtown or in the close surroundings on Fridays and Saturday nights, including going dancing to rock and roll bands!
We are also looking to learn from more experienced riders as well and practice riding California roads with people who may know especially beautiful places to ride to. I currently have a 1986 Honda Rebel 450, and love to ride relaxed and mindfully. As of May 2020, not sure if it was because the pandemic or not, I acquired a 2012 Harley Nightster, 1200cc. I love it. I look forward to riding long-distance on endless American Roads and experience the feeling of riding the American legend on it.. yeah... it had to be done.
Oh, and one little note about yearly dues, which seems to be the subject of much controversy:
The dues are charged simply because I am charged for it. So far I have not been able to meet the cost and cover the Meetup charges (almost $ 200 a year) with the members' fees. But I am hopeful I will at some point :)!
Thank you for checking us out, and for those who join, thank you for choosing to become a full member and support the existence of this group.
