Kim - Dykes on Bikes Melbourne

Name: Kim

Member since: 2019

Ride: 2015 HD street 500 custom

Riding since: 2018

Loves: Inline Hockey, motorbikes and my dog

Hates: Not much of a hater!!!!

What are your pronouns? She/Her

Who inspires you? Seeing the smile and gratitude from people when I give back to the community with emergency services

Tell us something about you that no one would know: I’m ambidextrous

Where’s your favourite place in the world? Arnhem Land

Tell me how you first got involved in with DoBM? I was looking to meet some new people that enjoy riding just as much as I do and wanted to feel part of a family, and here we are. Surrounded by a great bunch of people.

What is so empowering about riding a motorcycle? And How does riding transform other areas of your life?  The feeling of freedom is amazing. Riding down the coast being able to smell the ocean and your surrounds is an invigorating experience. You can hop on the bike and let your mind relax from everyday life.

Which pride parade would you love to ride in? Sydney Mardi Gras is the ultimate for me

What are you passionate about? I’m passionate about life in general. Being around good genuine people.

If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
Surprisingly nothing at all. Sure there are small things we all want in life but I am happy where my world is right now. Probably living it in the Maldives with oodles of money would be the only thing!!

What is your dream bike? HD breakout custom. They are a beautiful bike. Nice and loud!!!

Kim - Dykes on Bikes MelbourneWhat do you wish other people knew about DoBM?  I’d love people to know how beautiful everyone is. How welcoming everyone was on my first meeting and ride just made it so easy to feel a part of the club. There was no awkwardness with anyone. Come along and meet all the ladies at a ride and join the club. It’s a real family feel. I felt like I knew everyone for years.

We are always up for a chat, get in touch to find out about joining us on our next ride.
