Ride Like A Girl Spotlight - March 2022 - Digna Scott


Hello Moto Friends and Family! My name is Digna Scott, I am a wife to an amazing husband (he plays a big part in why I started riding a motorcycle) and a mother to a beautiful daughter soon to be leaving the nest for college Fall 2022. I wish I could say I’m a professional motorcycle stunt rider. But I’ll stick behind the computer as an eCommerce Specialist for a homeopathic medicine company (Boiron USA). I am very passionate about my job and what the company represents (Help Your Body The Natural Way).
.
.
Q. Why did you start riding?
.
A. My husband. When he decided he wanted to ride a motorcycle again, he knew I would be a bad and bossy passenger. So, he asked if I wanted to join him. Thank goodness he knows me so well because I’m loving every minute of it.
.
.
Q. How long have you been riding?
.
A. Got my M1 in July 2020 so almost 2 years.
.
.
Q. How would you describe your riding style?
.
A. My riding style would be cruising, no need for speed for me.  Even though I just won the SoCal SuperMoto Giveaway, an all inclusive school day riding on the track and dirt in February.  So ask me later if I'm adding riding tracks and dirt to my riding style.  I also enjoy a ride either by myself or with the family and can't forget the Ride and Dine with my MotoFriends. #ThrottleTherapy

.
Q. What bikes have you had and which one is/was your fave and why?
.
A. Can I consider my Genuine Buddy Scooter 170 as my first bike even though I only rode it for a month? Because I ended up getting Midnight, my Honda Rebel 500. I love her so much, best bike ever to start with. Easy to ride and the weight is manageable.
.
.
Q. What experience/lesson stands out the most to you, as it relates to skill development on your bike?
.
A. So many!!! But my number one for me is more for me and it may be different for others. I don’t ride to de-stress. I need to be 100% ready both emotionally and mentally and fully committed to riding. If I’m not, that means I will not be fully focused.
Q. What advice do you have for womxn who are interested in riding, but haven't started yet?
.
A. Take the safety course!!! Great investment. As a newbie rider, I was getting advice left and right from friends and families and don’t get me wrong, some are great but some are questionable. And sometimes it may translate differently when you’re riding. So, take my advice, do the Safety Course.
.
.
Q. What has been your most exciting accomplishment on your bike?
.
A. With Heather!!! Two most exciting accomplishments on my bike all in one ride and Heather was there. My first group ride with the Litas Los Angeles and lane splitting.
.
.
Q. What motorcycle gear is your "go-to"?
.
A. Apparel/Jeans - Love love my LTWI Flag Lightweight Crew. Just purchased the I Don’t Ride B*tch Windbreaker and wearing it with Atwyld Barricade Armored Shirt 2.0 and Voyager Moto Jeans
Jackets - Tobacco “The Riveter Riding Shirt” or Cortech Wildcat’s Bomber 
Helmet - Biltwell White Gringo S
Boots - Doc Martens Leather Lace Up Boots
.
.
Q. What would be your "dream bike" to own and why?
.
A. Working on owning it soon!!! I thought I was sold on the Indian Chief Dark Horse because I felt the power of riding an 1890cc on the demo ride but the Triumph Bonneville Bobber won my heart when I did the demo ride at the International Moto Show. It was just comfortable and I didn't need to modify it to fit me and plus Randy aka the hubs said he could see my big smile when I was riding it. So that says a lot.
Q. Who inspires you from the moto world and why?
.
A. So many to mention but I think in general, I am inspired by every womxn in the Moto world, who I have met, become friends with, riding buddies, womxn business owners in the moto world and especially the new riders. I am
inspired by womxn who empower each other.
.
.
Q. How have motorcycles changed your life?
.
A. Professionally, because I changed my job position almost the same time I started riding a motorcycle. Honestly, I was scared of motorcycles in my early 20s. Now, almost in my 50s, ok fine I have 4 more years to turn 50. Instead of being scared, I can’t wait to ride Midnight. I apply my experience in learning to ride a motorcycle and accomplishing it successfully, so any obstacles that I may face at work, I face it with confidence and focus just like riding a motorcycle.
