Motomama, Robin Galguera, Brain,
Child

At the age of thirty-two, Robin Galguera found herself handing over
$1,200 in cash to a paranoid cocaine addict for a Dawasaki GPz 550,
she writes in Brain, Child. Soon after, the once
painfully shy woman was a full-fledged biker woman, learning the
lingo to hold her own in biker crowds and becoming ‘intoxicated
with the heady perfume of gas and grease.’ Until she became
pregnant, that is, and nine months later was left with a son,
swollen breasts, hips that no longer fit under her leather jacket –
and a plaguing sense of guilt for continuing to partake in this
dangerous activity, with its potential to leave her son
motherless.
