Women in the Wind
I had gone back to school I told him for graduation I wanted a bike and he said oh yeah sure.
Lorri: So I got my bike for a graduation present when I went back to get my degree1:33
AND WITH THAT DEGREE AND HER GRADUATION PRESENT, LORI STASIUM BECAME THE COOLEST 6TH GRADE LANGUAGE ARTS TEACHER!
Lorri: I have them do all sorts of writing assignments related to riding related to women riding.
Lorri to children in schoolyard: Actually on this kids you donít have a key to start it
Lorri: They learn about the safety equipment that I use on bike.
Linda: What do you think your kids, getting out of your passion for motorcycles?
Lorri: Getting kids to write in 6th grade is difficult.
If they write about things that are fun and things that are different itís much easier to doÖ to think outside of what their used to seeing.

Linda: So what does your husband think of you riding beside him now rather than behind him?
Lorri: He misses me on the back.
