The Ride So FarNobody has to ride a motorcycle, so why do we do it?

We all have our reasons, but few can describe them better than these well spun tales from a varied motorcycling life. Whether recounting a laid-back ramble along an Appalachian backroad or trying to reach 170 mph on a Kawasaki Ninja at Losail International Circuit in Qatar, these tales from the road and ruminations from the garage uncover the essence of what makes motorcycling so much more than just a way to get from here to there.





Maggie McNally

Maggie McNally is a longtime motorcyclist and rider safety coach. In 2009 she was appointed to the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Board of Directors. McNally, who resides in Albany, N.Y., represents individual members from the country's Northeast region on the AMA Board. Her term expires February 2011.

McNally's love for riding began when she was 11-years old and her cousin took her for a ride on a Triumph. A few years later, eager to disprove a naysayer who suggested that women don't ride motorcycles, she got her riding permit and a 1972 Suzuki GT380.

McNally continues to be an avid motorcyclist and is a Motorcycle Safety Foundation RiderCoach. In addition to her motorcycling activities, McNally is active in Albany's Irish-American community, as an Irish 2000 Music and Arts Festival board member, Albany St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee member, and an assistant instructor at the Farrell School of Irish Dance. She also participates at the local and state level of the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians.

McNally works for the State of New York as a voice/data communications specialist and is currently pursuing a Masters of Business Administration degree.
