Bobbie Carlson started her career in Motorcycle Safety by implementing a Motorcycle Safety Program into a high school in Pennsylvania. She then moved into management of State Motorcycle Safety Programs. She became the State Coordinator in Pennsylvania, on the staff of Millersville University. Bobbie went from PA to the Motorcycle Safety Foundation in CA where she managed the Training Standards Department and the Train-the-Trainer Team, as well as working on the team that field tested and rolled out the BRC. From MSF, Bobbie moved back East to work with Federal Contractors to provide traffic and motorcycle safety training for the Military Services. For Cape Fox Professional Services, she rolled out a traffic and motorcycle training program in Europe. She then returned full circle to State Program Management in Pennsylvania, still under Cape Fox. She is now serving as the Program Manager of the CMSP in CA and the State Programs Director for Total Control Training. Bobbie attributes her growth, development and change in perspective on Motorcycle Safety to being part of a team that provided motorcycle training to our warfighters.

SeCCRet spelled S-E-C-C-R-E-T and pronounced “Secret”.
The C-C-R stands for Cross Country Rider.
Sarah “SeCCRet” Moreau always had a love for motorcycles as a child. After graduating with her Master’s Degree from California State University, Dominguez Hills, she wanted to take a break from living inside four wall structures… the office, library and the house. SeCCRet wanted something to allow her to escape and break free temporarily from the realities of school and subsequently work. In September 2005, she decided to learn how to ride a motorcycle by taking a riding course with the Motorcycle Safety Foundation at Cerritos Community College. SeCCRet secured her endorsement and has never looked back!
The same day she received her license, SeCCRet left Cerritos College and headed straight to Hahm Motorsports in Anaheim, where she purchased her very first motorcycle: a brand new 2006 Yamaha Silverado 650. Since she was afraid to ride her motorcycle on the freeway, she took the surface streets all the way home. SeCCRet later joined The Original Route 66 Motorcycle Club in Los Angeles, under the Presidential leadership of Chi-Town.
By May 13, 2006, a 4,854 mile road trip along the famous Route 66 highway led SeCCRet to realize she needed a motorcycle with more power and built for distance. She upgraded to a Yamaha Stratoliner 1900, on which she logged long days in the saddle, and 800 plus miles in one day from El Paso, Texas to Los Angeles, California.
Presently, SeCCRet sits aboard a 2015 Harley Davidson Street Glide, which she added to her collection after purchasing a 2007 Harley Davidson Road King.
She dedicates every motorcycle trip to her ROAD Model, Bessie Stringfield nicknamed “The Motorcycle Queen of Miami”. Bessie Stringfield was the first African-American woman to ride across the United States solo, eight times. SeCCRet’s dream was to break Bessie Stringfield’s record on an Indian Motorcycle, as Bessie’s first bike was an Indian Scout.
In 2016, SeCCRet broke Bessie Stringfield’s record with her 9th roundtrip ride, for a total of 18 times cross country, during the Sisters’ Centennial Motorcycle Ride. She served as a Road Captain, working to help lead 100 women from Brooklyn, New York to San Francisco, California. The Sisters Centennial Motorcycle Ride was created to honor and recreate the Van Buren Sisters ride in 1916. SeCCRet was chosen by their sponsor, Indian Motorcycle to be a featured sponsored rider and to break Bessie’s record on an Indian Roadmaster.
SeCCRet’s Riding Resume continues to grow, and she has no plans to slow down. She has completed the USA Four Corners Ride, this took SeCCRet to the Four Corners of the lower 48 which are San Ysidro in California, Blaine in Washington, Madawaska in Maine and Key West in Florida. She has been awarded the Beautiful Bikers Ground Pounder Award, presented by Black Girls Ride Magazine, and is the first female recipient of the illustrious “Smiley Patch”, given to riders who have achieved 48 states.
SeCCRet is also an International Motorcycle Rider with trips through Canada, Mexico and Dominican Republic. She has ridden in 49 of the United States, with plans to ride to Alaska in the near future.
All of this riding has provided SeCCRet with the experience and know-how to share with others. She shares her passion for riding by offering seminars on long distance touring to help ready newer riders to take on their own adventures.
2019 Renaissance Rider Honoree

Name: Michelle Y Roach-Haver
Club: The Flames MCC, Columbus OH
Club name:Lil Roach
Motorcycle(s):2007 Honda VTX 1300C, 2006 Honda VTX 1800C, 2000 Suzuki GSXR 600
My motto: “I just wanna ride my bike.”
I’ve been riding since I was old enough to be strapped to my Daddy with a belt. On my own, I have close to 30 years riding experience. My father, Farris “Motorcycle Man” Roach was a co-founder of the club and was well known for “setting the highway on fire” which is how we got our club motto & I got my club name Lil Roach. I did not ride as much when my daughter was small but once she graduated from high school I hit the highway HARD and haven’t stopped.
One of my greatest accomplishment was completing all 48 states and 2 Canadian borders to earn the Smiley Patch #44. I broke barriers in my club to become to first female member to ride to California and all Southwest/Western states solo and the ONLY MEMBER to ride all 48 states within a year. In 2016, I started a journey to find the TRUE meaning of sisterhood & unity with a few brand new & long distance riders with a trip to Jacksonville, FL. Since then, all of them have spread their wings and now have taken other new riders under their wings showing what they’ve learned.
It makes me feel very accomplished to know the transfer of my knowledge took place in that one trip which is why I wanted to be a Black Girls Ride Ohio Ambassador. There are so many riders out there eager to learn but no one willing to take the time to educate them; l have and will travel to help any lady rider needing my assistance or just want someone to ride with. Helping a fellow rider out of their comfort zone is not what every rider has experience, or patience, which intimidates any new rider – Not Squeak. I’m a mother, caregiver, career student, I hold several professional certifications and a Beautiful Biker – I am Squeak aka Lil Roach!

As a rider with a background in historical research, Porsche Taylor became curious about other women who blazed a trail in motorsports and how they evolved in the new millenium. Captivated by Bessie Stringfield, who paved the way for all women who ride, race or stunt, Porsche became the Founder and Editor-In-Chief of Black Girls Ride Magazine (BGR) on January 1, 2011. BGR is an inclusive celebration of all women who live to ride. BGR has become a source for new product launches & reviews, women’s rider fashion, and women’s riding events across the nation, including Black Girls Ride to Essence Fest, and the Beautiful Bikers Conference & Awards.
The Beautiful Bikers Conference & Awards was created by Porsche Taylor in 2013, to celebrate the accomplishments of women who shared a passion for riding.
