Chrome Diva

 
Posted by Picasa


This lady was standing in front of us while we were waiting for the show to start at the Exotic Bird Fair. The emblem on her back says she's a member of the Chrome Divas, a national organization for women who love motorcycles. This organization was started in Tallahassee in 2002 and has chapters all over the United States, Canada and now Europe. They raise money for many worthy causes including breast cancer research. Visit their website for more information about this fascinating organization.

Those look exactly like my long red underwear.

It was 48 degrees here this morning. I will have to dig my long johns out.

You should have tapped her on her back and asked her for a portrait. I will have to look around and see if there is a chapter in Sweden.

Great candid shot Lois!
So are you thinking about becoming a Chrome Diva? Imagine the great photos that could be taken at the get togethers. :-)

Her attire looks like they were former equestrians in an earlier, and entirely different time.

I think you are a diva, with or without a motorcycle!

Why pink, I wonder?

Today we drove across State Road 40 to Ormond Beach...lots of motorcycles and a number had women either driving them or riding behind.

I think it's great. She's not just sitting at home, she's out having a good time and doing something that benefits others. Thumbs up to her!
You really had fun at the bird fair didn't you?

That's a 'life in the real world' kinda photo, Lois. Some gals just love to ride, I know I did :D

That 'Smokin Butt's BBQ' is a real hoot...

I've seen allot of "bikers" in my time, but never one like this. At least she's out doing something for a good cause.

I've heard there is a growing number of women on motorcycles now! Not me!
