Member Spotlight Archives: Anne Milanese

Name: Anne Milanese

Nickname: Not "seasoned" enough to have one yet.

Age: 29

Occupation: Systems Administrator

Hobbies/Other interests: Taking care of my baby (Honey), traveling, collecting shot glasses from interesting travel stops, and annoying Wally ;-)

Type of Ride: 2004 Suzuki Volusia

Dream ride: Any big and beefy two wheeler.

How long have you been riding?: Almost 2 yrs, minus any cold, nasty weather days.

Average Miles a Year: About 5,000 miles.

What do you like about riding?: The cool looks I get when stopped at an intersection and the feeling of freedom on the open road…of course. Silly Mom, she knows I can’t answer the phone while I’m riding.

Why did you join the SCRC?: I wanted other people to ride with that actually go places... my favorite was Cindy’s ride from Moe's in Wake Forest/Wakefield to the coffee shop.

What does SCRC mean to you?: Southern Cruisers Riding Club. No really…ummm... it means a warm friendship of accepting individuals who have the same interests... to not only share their woes and fixes for their beloved bikes, but their joys and great rides. (Tony already used "camaraderie"... I had to think of something else.)

Rides I like the most: Warm ones, ones where I don’t fall (so far all have been good…knock on wood). I like the rides that test my abilities without scaring the crap out of me. I'll have to practice coming back from Mt Airy again... only not almost fly off the mountain next time.

Dream trip: Honey in her black skull cap and leathers on the back with the wind combing through her gold locks of hair, tongue flailing in the wind out of pure elation.

Favorite Quote: "Why do I have to make my bed when I’m only going to mess it up by sleeping in it tonight?" The author of this quote is not known, however I used it almost on a daily basis growing up. (And unfortunately occasionally now that I have my own place when Mom & Dad come to visit.)

Anything else you'd like to say?: I'll let you know when it comes to me... until then, I'll just listen. Oh wait! I have something... I hope this Spotlight Questionnaire lives up to Cindy's expectations as she admitted that Becky's was going to be hard to top. With any luck, she will still let me follow her to the coffee shop. Please, Cindy? Did I do well? Lastly, I will do my best to provide world peace throughout my rein as Spotlight Member.
