This article and its entire foundation is simply a repeat of so many hundreds of others. It's all been said and done before. We don't move forward in the industry because very few women actually, really are knowledgable about motorcycling. And Janssen's book well, she has simply copied others before her telling the same stories. Baby boomers are so yesterday! This article is the same ole, same ole, take if from an expert! Author needs to do her homework! Blind leading the blind here. Rubbish!
So you think that baby boomers are "so yesterday." Every generation thinks that the generation(s) that go before them are worthless. Well, I've got news for you, smartass, because this baby boomer has accomplished more than you will ever dream of adding to your pitiful bucket list. I rode dirt bikes for years as a youngster, and I did the maintenance and repairs on all my bikes. I trained horses for twenty-five years, and I successfully trained horses that put big rodeo cowboys in the hospital. I showed horses to championships, owned and drove my own Corvette for years, and now have my own Harley and ride it everywhere.
I'm a sixty-two year old woman who has been told many times that I look 35. I am a baby boomer because that's the time on earth that I've been assigned. You, on the other hand, have apparently not figured this whole thing out. You may be younger now, but time will pass by very quickly. Blink, and you will be old. Remember this post, and take note of how you feel when the younger folks dismiss you as a sixty-something has-been. We are young and smart-mouthed for a short time, then suddenly, we are old and supposedly stupid. You may think that all baby boomers are "so yesterday," but I'm guessing that you will have to have balls of steel to accomplish what I have in my lifetime.
