RIDER PROFILE: Noeveda


"Upon leaving California for Benin, I started going on trips with my dad and my uncles. They had always been motorcycle riders but this time they were no longer riding solo. ⁠ They were now part of a bikers club. I saw my dad's new collection of motorcycles and I instantly wanted to come along. Unfortunately, I noticed out here riding was a man's world.⁠ All the females who came on these trips with us were only female passengers. And I wanted to be more than that. I did not want to ride on the back anymore. So I convinced my dad to let me get my own motorcycle.⁠ I rode scooters in the past but this is nothing like it. At first, my height (5.0') and the weight of the bike made it seem impossible. ⁠ However now riding feels amazing. I feel like I am unstoppable. I am breaking stereotypes and having fun doing it."⁠ Noeveda from Benin (West Africa), rides a Yamaha v-star xvs 650.⁠ 📸: @luquenum
