[COLOR="Red"]My FAvorite Seminar at the National! We always finish with your story of meeting goals, setting new ones, and celebrating the fun we find on two wheels.
Hope to see you there!
[COLOR="Red"]There are lots more seminars that will appeal to women who ride, those who are considering it and those who support women who ride.
The hard part is choosing which to go to . . .
See you there Voni.
[COLOR="Red"]Right. Saturday. And 10:15 to 11:45. So we have time to meet and greet afterwards.
Can't wait! I always walk away feeling good and very inspired :dance
Will miss you all!
I won't be coming East this year. Have a great time and let those of us who can't be there know what you found the most interesting and inspiring!!!
Triumph Street Triple
Piaggio MP3 500
and Autocom SW Distributor's Representative
Also Women who Race!
I will be giving a seminar about getting into racing.
[COLOR="Red"]I'll be there!
We have the most amazing women in the BMW MOA who are willing to share their passions. Be sure to check the seminar schedule for this and more.
Thank you Voni and all the amazing women on your panel for another very inspiring seminar. I have come away from each of these with new goals and a feeling of camaraderie. You ladies are the best:hug
+1 on the kudos!:thumb You meet the most interesting women and then you're generous enough to introduce them to the rest of us! Thanks Voni! It was a great seminar!
I'm only sorry that Ardys wasn't there but I ran into her later that day and introduced myself - one of my biggest thrills of the rally! I had donated to her million mile fund but had never met her - she needs to team up with you Voni and have a seminar for the ages!
Thanks for organizing it!
Sorry I missed this! I was looking forward to meeting you and some of the other women of this forum but couldn't get away from the track to attend.
Regardless, I had an incredible week, made new friends, sweated off 5 lbs. and can't wait to do it all again!
I too enjoyed the womens seminar hosted by Voni. It inspired me and my partner to just get out there and go for it. So what if there is no guy to ride with. Between your guests and the demonstration by "Skert" we came away with a new sense of confidence and wonder to get out there and see the world.
We have also decided to stop listening to the naysayers :fight that always try to derail our thoughts about riding. We have put the "what if's" away after listening to Helen TwoWheels tell her story about parking a trailer on a hill in San Fran. That was hilarious! I think she needs her own hour at the rally. Does she have a book out? She should.
Thanks again for all your hard work :kiss and bringing all of us together to listen to these inspiring stories! That's what we really need to hear more of rather than the family and friends who tell us we are crazy for riding motorcycles. We already know we are crazy but it's better than sitting in a chair watching the world go by. I'd rather view it from my saddle!:dance
[COLOR="Red"]Thank you all, sincerely.
As nervous as I get appearing before a crowd, I consider this seminar to be so important, I do it anyway. You all are the stars!
As to Ardys, by next year she and I will belong to the unique group of two millionaire BMW Women riders. You bet we'll have our own seminar. A million sMiles. Wow.
I too enjoy the Women Who Ride seminar and try not to miss it! This year's was no exception!!! After that I went away to the oil change venue where I volunteer and got to tell and help a guy airhead rider how to change his oil for his first time! That's a first! The seminars are empowering!!!!! Oh yeah....errr....so I learn something each time at Paul's tech session seminars too. Thanks Paul!!
I can't believe that I missed Ardy's over 4 days??!! She must have been hiding under the one tree in the shade??!! Or I was walking with my head down too much thinking cool thoughts!
