Photo by: Gevin Fax Featured "Biker Momma" - Tana Roller Tell us about more about your life outside of kids. My mister of 13 years, Kadeem, has a dope BMW GS1150 but he only rides for transporta on. His fi rst job was as a bike messenger in New York, and that was his only bike experience/iden ty. If you can imagine, our ride styles are very diff erent. To recap, I grew up camping and playing in the mountains on motorcycles; he rides to kick traffi c. I ride to soothe my soul; he rides to maneuver LA gridlock on his daily commute. Kadeem is a lifelong video gamer; I have two le thumbs. So, weekends fi nd him playing games with his buddies and me out riding with mine. Then, we come together at the end of the day and swap stories and giggle. Clearly, I was missing out on some two-wheel sisterhood because when I came across the magic that is "Babes Ride Out" my mind was blown. My life has not been the same since. “Babes” woke the biker babe in my soul to a new level. I have since restructured everything to revolve around bike life. I look forward to riding side-by- side with my daughter very soon! 16 What is your profession and what other hobbies do you have?
