Judy Mirro, President and Co-Founder of the WRS, LLC
Judy picked up the sport 34 years ago. No one in her family rode motorcycles, but she figured since her
Great Uncle rode the Wall-of-Death on an Indian Scout in Coney Island, NY, in the 1930's, there must be some adventurous genes
in her too. She got the bug as a little girl as a passenger on a regular ride from a family friend - a motorcycle patrolman
- "Uncle" Joe Bernholz.
In 1996 - Judy gained her national certification as a Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) Instructor and has worked part-time,
seasonally, with the Vermont Rider Education Program (VREP) ever since.
At the age of 38 - Judy brought herself to New Hampshire International Speedway, got her Roadracing License and went racing.
Judy also started working with Bruce Meyers & Susie Leiper of BCM Motorsports of Laconia, NH, instructing at their Track
Days and also helped put on the very first BCM Ladies Track Day (LTD) event.
In 1997 - Judy started another career in moto-journalism as Roadrace Editor and Test Rider. She covered such events as the
Tourist Trophy (TT) at the Isle of Man and new press intro's like the Honda RC51 at Laguna Seca Raceway. MotorcycleWorld.com
was later bought out and Judy was out of a seriously fun, part-time job. Judy still writes articles when she can and is always
up for a manufacturers' test ride.
Judy enjoys touring around the country attending motorcycle rallies and events and commutes daily - rain or shine - on
one of her rides.
You can catch Judy in "Motorcycle Diaries" (a film by Diane Howells & Sam Schultz) and a number of motorcycle

Speedway. Judy helped bring women to the Ducati Rev's America 2001 event in Las Vegas, Nevada, and spoke at Ducati "University".
