Some of the most important things I’ve learned in life so far Love and happiness are both choices you make. Every individual has complete control over both, and they both take work to maintain… But without your health, nothing else matters.
Some of the things I’ve learned by attending the rally Never ever ever judge a Unicorn by her horn. There is true value in opening up your heart to women who love to ride as much as you do. Learn from those who have come before you and teach those who will come after you. They are the international family you will build, develop, and cherish for the rest of your life.
Goals Write a book. Write a screenplay. Shift the “gear” paradigm. Influence the future of our sport. Inspire those who ride and those who have something big to overcome. Leave a legacy.
Favorite Quotes “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.”

One Comment on “Brittany Morrow

  1. Stephani McIntyre, here! I’m going to share a lesson I learned with the world (well, anyone who reads this page, that is). It is humbling and kind of embarrassing, but aren’t all lessons in life?

    When I first met Brittany nearly a decade ago, it was at Daytona Bike Week 2006 at a women’s event put on by the now defunct WominX.net. At that time in my life, I was “too good” for women’s events like those because it felt like all the girls were posers. Like they had this look-at-me-I-am-a-girl-on-a-bike attitude. At that time, we were getting ready to launch the Women’s Sportbike Rally that fall. An event designed for “real” women riders. You know, girls who wear gear and know how to take a corner on the street or track. Not one’s who pose in a parking lot, ride in a straight line with their custom painted sportbikes with guys drooling everywhere.

    There were a lot of women (and guys) there. Some were cliquey, some sitting off to the side not really engaging in the chaos. In that sea of people was Brittany. And I immediately judged her. I saw was her sparkly paint job, blonde hair, tattoos and what appeared to be scars. Really big scars on her arms. I figured she was a stunter chick who crashed or something; didn’t learn her lesson and still showing off. I met a few ladies that day. I was nice and cordial, but didn’t truly engage with any of them because of the assumptions I had.

    I was an asshole.

    But I didn’t realize how much of an asshole until I actually met her. I learned her story. Learned about HER!

    I remember telling Brittany this story a few years later after we had become friends and I couldn’t tell it then without tearing up. (And apparently can’t write it now without tearing up too.) I almost missed out on becoming friends with one of my favorite people in the world because I judged a book by its cover. I let snobbery and assumptions take over my ability to meet new (and clearly awesome) people that day. I learned a lesson becoming friends with Brittany and women events. If you’re reading this, and you’re an asshole like I was, it’s never too late to change or drop your assumptions in order to make new friends. You’ll be glad you did.
