Half Pint Conquers Fear of Heights
Macon, GA – Six months ago SOTC “Half Pint” of the Mighty Black Sabbath MC Nation was only thinking about buying a motorcycle. On July 28, 2014 she found herself riding cross country experiencing the epic nomadic journey of her life! As a member of the Black Sabbath MC Nation’s Sisters of the Cross MC Half Pint had been practicing her riding skills madly over the summer conquering rain storms, short distance runs and riding in formation with her brothers and sisters, but no amount of training prepared her to face her biggest fears which sprung upon her suddenly while traveling to the National Bikers Round Up in Tulsa, Oklahoma this summer!
You see Half Pint was afraid of heights and water and when she hit I-55 out of Memphis Tennessee she ran head long into both as the freeway suddenly pitched UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and beneath her spanned the mighty Mississippi River/Ocean.
“I was riding next to my brothers and sisters and the next thing I know the highway just started heading towards the sky, ” Half Pint exclaimed! “I was high above the city, in the air and there was nothing but water all around me. It was so terrifying! But I knew I had my brothers and sisters around me, we were all in formation and I just focused my attention straight ahead and became determined to make it over! I just didn’t want to get stuck at the top and try to have someone take me down, so I rode hard the way Black Sabbath does things!”
Knowing that she had her brothers and sisters supporting her the whole way Half Pint became empowered to conquer two of her biggest fears that suddenly sprang upon her on the road. The training she received from her Road Captain and club prepared her well.
“When I got over that bridge we pulled over and I just let out a “whew” and tried to stop shaking. Ride or Die came up to me and said, “You haven’t even gone over the big bridge yet that one is coming just as soon as we get to the I-40!” I just looked at him with my mouth dropped open.”
“Needless to say Half Pint handled the second bridge like she did the first! With Black Sabbath MC style and pizzazz,” Said Black Dragon National President. “Next we take her to one of those draw bridges with the open grates to the ocean over there in San Francisco! Ride on Sister of the Cross Half Pint! Ride on! We are so damned proud of you!”
