Kathe learned to ride a Motorcycle in 2004, well at least a trike. She started with a MotorTrike Honda 750 Key kit and than moved up to a Honda 1800 VTX that was converted by Wild west Trikes . She received 2nd Place in Trikes at a Autorama Harley Davidson show. We are both Lifetime Members of the Salt Lake Motorcycle Club, one of the oldest Motorcycle clubs in the U.S. and the oldest in Utah. It was established as an AMA club in 1942.
