2013 Ultimate Biker Makeover Winner
And here is Katy's story.
||"I know that there are more people deserving than I am and eventually I will get the things I need to keep riding. My jacket is over 10 years old and I’ve expanded a little and have a hard time getting it to fasten. I’ve attached an additional photo of me in the jacket on the left along with my husband while riding in the Make a wish charity ride. I have to have someone zip it up while I pull it together. Kind of embarrassing. I’ve been borrowing my sister’s jacket so I could ride through the winter months and add layers to keep warm. I would love to have a mustang seat. I just have never had the money to get one. My husband also rides and he I enjoy taking off on the bikes for long distances. My seat is just a bit uncomfortable and I have to make frequent stops so that I don’t loose the feeling in my lower extremities. I do my best to take care of my bike from top to bottom. The cool kit cleaning kit would be awesome also. I enjoy riding with my friends and family. I’ve won very few things in life. I usually have to work hard to get what I want, but it’s all worth it. "
Thanks for the contest,
