AMA Hall of Famer Bessie B. Stringfield

We’d like to take a moment to recognize a very special lady in motorcycle and United States history! Bessie B. Stringfield, A.K.A. “The Motorcycle Queen of Miami”, and also an American Motorcyclist Association Hall of Famer (inducted in 2002), was not only a U.S. Military Motorcycle Dispatch Rider, she also rode cross-country solo, 8 times! Talk about a true motorcyclist! Because February is also Black History Month, we thought it’d be a great idea, for many sentimental reasons, to tell people about her story!

Visit the link below to read about the amazing Bessie:
