Who is Mona Khatib?
I am a 33 years old Lebanese woman majored in engineering, lives in Beirut and likes adventure and fun.
Super Bikes lady rider, what can you tell us about your experience?
I have been riding a superbike for more than 6 years. I joined several groups in Lebanon and finally created my own group 4 years ago.
What first got you to ride a motorcycle?
I love the rush of adrenaline and the feeling you get when you ride a machine that offers you so much power.
You are now riding in Lebanon and you used to ride in UAE, any difference in people’s reaction when they see a woman on a super bike?
People find it strange when they see a female biker, they used to point at me or wave and smile.
You are now part of a motorcycle group that rides for fun, do you get any special treatment from the guys in the group, is there any other woman rider in the same group?
On the roads, I drive like any other male biker so no special treatment there however those bikers treat me like a sister and respect my space. We are all as family, we do care about each other and stand for each other no matter what.
Do you encourage other women to drive motorcycles
I do encourage anyone male or female that loves riding for the sake of riding to enjoy the beauty and freedom of driving a motorcycle but do it carefully and not for showoff.
This sport is thrilling and dangerous at same time.
As a rebel and extreme biker, what is the message you are sending to our community, to the bikers in general and to the women bikers in particular?
To my fellow bikers, please be careful on the roads and take this hobby seriously and always wear your safety protections.
Anything else you would like to share.
I would like to request from our government to consider bikers as a group of our community and as not as criminals and to take the necessary steps to preserve our lives and ensure our safety on the roads.
