Another regular attendee of the Olympics was Marla Garber
. I had no idea who she
was back then, but it was quite obvious that she
rode a 1978 XS 11 Yamaha just like mine, only fully dressed with fairing and bags straight from the factory.If being a small female on a muscle bike did not attract enough attention, she
also traveled with her
dogs on board.A photographer from Toronto covering our event must have noticed the same thing; her
picture was published in the next day's newspaper.Marla went on to become a roaming reporter for Canadian Biker, and later SuperCycle magazine, wearing out Electra Glides crisscrossing the continent.
