| In the Spring of 2003
Discovery Channel came up here to Vancouver, Canada to film a 1 hour documentary
on me and my passion for motorcycles. I agreed to do what I thought was going to be a documentary because I thought it would be a good way to really promote girls and motorcycles positively and respectfully in a main stream environment.
However, once I viewed the video I was quite disappointed as several aspects of the film were edited in a one-sided manner that does not truly portray what I believe in or what I am doing to make a place for us girls in this male dominated sport.
The fact is that I was not responsible for the way the show was created and edited. There were several other positive motorcycle related events and projects that were filmed that I thought were going to be in the show.
Instead the show was edited to focus mainly on the confrontation and challenges I faced with an extremely unprofessional, and belligerent man (that Discovery sent me to the same afternoon that I got my new bike!) who went out of his way to make the whole painting project difficult for me and to create controversy.
Regardless, it was a once in a life time opportunity that I was lucky enough to be chosen to participate in.
