“Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” – Abraham Lincoln

Welcome to Motorcycle Momma Blog. This blog is dedicated to all women motorcyclist for whom I have the utmost respect. My goal with this blog is to share motorcycle tips and trip information with my fellow female riders. Denise Ditto Satterfield aka Wonder Woman aka Motorcycle Momma

Welcome To Motorcycle Momma Blog

The idea to start a motorcycle blog developed in 2012 while I was on a long motorcycle trip – 7000 miles over the summer – traveling to Bellingham, Washington and back home to Texas via the west coast .  Total mileage that year topped 20,000.  During that summer ride I got to thinking about my writing career.  I remembered someone telling me once, write about what you know.  I thought about my granddaughter, who at the time watched avidly, YouTube videos like, “How to Apply Make-up” and “How to Fix Hair” and I thought, why not create a blog and include YouTube videos to discuss and answer motorcycle related questions like “How to Pack for a 10 day Motorcycle Trip” or “What do I Pack for a Long Trip?” In my early riding days I wished I had someone to ask that very question.  What I did was start out with the hit and miss packing method.  My first motorcycle trip was in 1990, Sturgis 50th Year Anniversary.  We traveled through 17 states in 17 days for a total of 5,700 miles.  What I packed for that trip was quite comical, looking back on it, but overall the hit and miss method has worked pretty well for me.  However, the more I travel the better I get at packing, especially for multiple destination trips.  I decided to share what I have learned and; hopefully, learn more from you, my Motorcycle Momma Blog followers.

NAVIGATING THE TABS

Blogs – Regular Blog posts are here.

Packing Tips – Videos – This tab takes you to motorcycle video tips  – demonstrations and explanations – a must see section of the Motorcycle Momma Blog.

On The Road Again – This tab is where current motorcycle trips will be posted, starting with the planning to the to day-to-day rides.

Tips – 1990 Sturgis Saga – This tab will take you to the story of my first long ride which reads from the bottom up.  Each post includes a Tip for the Day.  The first post is titled, “The Beginning” and includes, “Tip Number 1 – Be cautious of sand and gravel on the road.  Even the best of riders can go down.”  It’s my intention to get the posts for this trip completed in 2014.  Sorry for the delay.  In addition, I will work to make the entry’s flow better once I’ve completed the story, so for now, when visiting this tab, start at “The Beginning,” and work your way up.

Other Blogs – This tab will take you to my other blog sites, unrelated to motorcycling.

Motorcyclemommablog.gear – This tab will take you to the Motorcycle Momma Blog Store where you can purchase shirts and stuff with the Motorcycle Momma Blog logo so be sure and stop by there.  If there is a product you would like to have with the Motorcycle Momma Blog logo on it and don’t see it in the shop, message or email me and I’ll get it out there for you.

Thanks for visiting my site.  Remember, there will be periodic posts, photos, and videos so stayed tuned!  Hope to hear from you all soon!  Happy motoring!

    • Hey Brad, thanks for recommending my site to others. Glad you’re enjoying it. I’m having a blast working on it.

    • Julie, it was great meeting you today, as well. And thanks for the drink at the Spaulding Steak and Ale. We enjoyed hearing all about your in-laws motorcycle travels and as soon as we get back to Houston we are going to purchase their travel book, Time Out: An American Journey.

    • Hey Bill and Carolynn, How the heck are the two of you doing? Thanks for checking out the MMB. It has been a lot of fun working on it. I will be posting the final 2 days of our trip this week and then Frank and I will be on … looking for our next adventure. Maybe in September. Are you guys going to Homecoming?

    • Matt, I am happy to hear of your MMB addiction! LOL I am still using the GoPro and I do recommend it. I wore it while ziplining in Canada in September and it was so awesome to see the footage. I can’t believe I went snowmobiling without it. Next time I won’t forget. Thanks for reading my blog …

  1. Thanks Scarlett, I LOVE writing it. It’s like talking with my peeps all the time. Glad all is well with you. I love following you on Facebook. What a great invention! Well, riding season is approaching fast. Let’s keep up so maybe we can run into each other at an event or something. Well, not literally Run Into Each other … but you know what I mean. LOL

  2. Hello I was the guy that talk to you and your husband at Chili’s in Brownwood sorry I did not introduce myself while I was sitting there

    • Hey Matt, glad you checked out the blog. It was nice talking to you. I hope we get a chance to run by the Regency swinging bridge. If we don’t make it this time, we’ll come back and look for it. It sounds cool.

  3. Wow! This could be one particular of the most useful blogs We’ve ever arrive across on this subject. Actually Excellent. I’m also an expert in this topic so I can understand your hard work. kdadgbfgbdce

  4. Hi Denise,

    I would be remiss if I didn’t let you know that I shared your ‘How to listen to music on your motorcycle’ on Facebook. I have just one tiny iPod shuffle and finally after 7 years riding, listening to the wind and decided 2 years ago, to clip the iPod onto my vest & there, blissfully listening to my fav tunes when riding! I have HD speakers on the bike, however, very loud pipes! So I don’t use the speakers, the earphones work just fine. And I always bring spare like you do :). There are already a few ‘likes’ and thank you comments for forwarding your video! Hopefully like I have, this will lead the other ladies on the FB pages to venture further into your website for more helpful reads and hints, tips!

    Thanks for sharing what you know and do to make life more fun and helpful on our travels. Safe riding WindSister 🙂

  5. Kelley, thanks for passing my video on to your FaceBook page. Here is an update for you with regard to listening to music while riding. I bought a LG – Tone+ Bluetooth Headset. We went for a ride today (the temp in Houston was early morning in the 60’s but it warmed up to 70’s by afternoon – perfect riding weather) and I tried out these new earphones out and WOW. It is was such an improvement. I have copied and pasted the info below.

    Model: HBS-730.ACUSBKK SKU: 8539099

    Compatible with most Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones with HS, HF, A2DP and AVRCP profiles; apt-X technology; around-the-neck design; vibration alerts; advanced multipoint capability; audible battery alerts

    Thanks for your support of MotorcycleMommaBlog.com. Safe riding back at ya WindSister!!! ww
