TOWAMENCIN – Since Monika Roslonowski was a little girl, she’s been watching in awe as her dad rode his motorcycle. Her whole life she dreamed to one day ride a motorcycle just like him.

“When I was younger, I couldn’t wait for it to be my turn,” said the North Penn senior, “I kept saying [to my dad] that one day it’s going to be my turn, and I’m going to ride a motorcycle too.”

Roslonowski’s dad was convinced that his little girl wanted to ride a motorcycle, so, when she turned seventeen, he took her to get her motorcycle permit. Roslonowski had to successfully pass an eighteen question quiz that is “just like getting your driver’s permit,” she explained.

For the last two riding seasons, Roslonowski has been riding her Honda Rebel 250, also known as her starter bike. Riding a motorcycle is definitely very special to Roslonowski since she’s following in her dad’s footsteps.

When it finally came time to ride entirely on her own, Roslonowski was excited but also a little bit freaked out. She was aware of potentially disastrous risks associated with riding a motorcycle, so when the time came, Roslonowski was in a panic.

Recently, she faced one of her most terrifying situations when a driver forced her and her bike to slide off to the side of the road. “If it would’ve been an inch closer, it would have been my head,” described Roslonowski. Luckily, she only came out with a bruised thigh, and the bike had no damage.

It is risky situations like that one that scare Roslonowski, but ultimately do not faze her from doing what she loves. Instead of being discouraged by those potential risks, Roslonowski embraces them because she would much rather “risk it all and see as much of the world as [she] can.”

Ever since she started riding, Roslonowski gained a new perspective of the world, for now she sees life in a whole other way.

“I get to see the world through milliseconds,” explained Roslonowski. She enjoys taking her time so that she can observe the people around her. “All the people always seem to move so quickly, so I am lucky to be able to sit back and just grasp everything.”

Even on her rides to school, Roslonowski loves seeing the world slow down for a little bit. Riding her bike to school is special to Roslonowski for more than just the views because “I feel like it’s more of a ‘me’ thing,” she mentioned, “I love how it makes me so unique.”
