Veda is a female motorcycle rider living in the greater Boston area. She has been riding motorcycles since August 2006 when she purchased a 125cc scooter; the Yamaha Vino. The following spring she took the MSF course on a blistery 35 degree March day. Shortly after that she purchased a 2007 Ninja 250. The bike served her well for two more years and 7,000 miles. In the spring of 2009 she stalked local dealerships waiting for the new Kawasaki ER-6Ns to arrive. While the bike is one of the most popular 650cc class bikes in Europe this was the first model year the bike would be sold in the states. After finding one Veda quickly scooped it up and made the trade.
