Grabbing the handlebars at 50 and kicking chronic pain to the curb!
Lisa Whitham is not one to complain about her health challenges, but one to tell you about how excited she is to be riding her motorcycle – a 1995 Harley Davidson Sportster XL1200.
Born with a birth defect that causes chronic lower back pain and also battling the limits of Fibromyalgia, you’re not going to find her sitting on the sidelines. The Midland, Michigan dynamo, decided “disabled” was not a word that would limit her. She would rather grab the handlebars, skipping a does of medicine that could make for unsafe riding and deal with the pain and consequences after the motorcycle ride. She mentions, “I haven’t been riding motorcycle’s long. In late July 2011 my husband bought me a 1995 H-D Sportster XL1200. The only riding on my own I had ever done was on a mini bike when I was about 10 yrs. old. I had dreamed of riding my own Harley for years and frankly I never thought it would happen.
