The chopper, perhaps the most iconic style of motorcycle in the world has its roots way back in the late 40s. Back then, US service men returning home from the war chose to ride and race
motorcycles in order to keep their minds busy and their spirit alive. Teri was a member of the "chopper community." She liked riding her Harley-Davidson because it was the bikes of the outlaw, the
rebel, the bikes of the antihero and of the irresistible villain.

The chopper, perhaps the most iconic style of motorcycle in the world has its roots way back in the late 40s. Back then, US service men returning home from the war chose to ride and race motorcycles in order to keep their minds busy and their spirit alive. By the late 60s choppers were the most distinguishable type of motorcycle that ever existed. From the chopper culture the biggest winner was Harley-Davidson.

Teri was a member of the "chopper community." She liked riding her Harley-Davidson because it was the bikes of the outlaw, the rebel, the bikes of the antihero and of the irresistible villain. She was introduced to the Harley-Davidson lifestyle by her ex-boyfriend and his best friend, "Tango & Cash." When she bought her first Harley she practiced for "2 Days in the Valley" before hitting Route 66, the Mecca of riders. Route 66 was the symbol of the loner. It crossed the United States with over 2000 miles, and had big parts of empty desert roads.

With long hair and dusty leather clothes, either feared or admired by the public, Teri had a clear vision of "The Big Picture.": she hated "Desperate Housewives." Under "The Cool Surface" she had "Fever." Her heart was burning with passion for the open road. She was in no way a "Dead Girl."

Teri was a "Supergirl" on "The Exile" you'd never find at home for "Sunday Diner." She liked "Straight Talk" and "Murphy Brown," her new partner. They formed "The Odd Couple" in the chopper community. Indeed, Murphy was a woman. She used to be a famous investigative journalist and news anchor for FYI, a fictional CBS television newsmagazine. Like Teri, she left everything to hit the road and never go back home.

When Teri watched "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" on TV, she imagined "Teri & Murphy: The New Adventures of Superwomen." Maybe she will have to wait a bit longer to see a TV serie featuring a couple formed by lesbians as superheroes.

Teri's worst experience on the road happened when she was "All Tied Up" by "Heaven's prisoners" who stole her bike. Hopefully, she was saved by some "Spy Kids" hidden in the bush who witnessed everything. They wrote down Teri's Harley-Davidson licence plate number, which allowed her to get her bike back. With the help of the police, of course.

Teri had a friend named "Coraline." Unfortunately, she died in a road accident. A "Dead Girl" on the road is never a good memory for a chopper. However, Teri had a motto to keep on living: "Tomorrow Never Dies." Whatever happened in her personal life, she had to keep on living with "A Touch of Fate."

The open road taught her many life lessons. Let's go through it:

"We may have doubts, but we control the present. We always have the choice to move forward with hope and confidence."

That's what riding a bike is all about. Have you ever seen a chopper moving backward on the open road?

"Don't try to be perfect. Life isn't; no one is. Use mistakes and mishaps as opportunities to grow tolerance and to teach. There is such a thing as happy accidents. And love, love, love and listen, listen, listen."

Obviously, happy accidents are accidents you survive. Not the kind of accident "Coraline" was involved in. Love the chopper's lifestyle and listen to the roar of the engine. It's irresistible.

"I love clothes that when you put them on, you feel like you. I don't care whether anyone else likes them."

Teri underlined it because her parents never approved her choice of wearing tight pants and leather jackets.

"I feel more comfortable with myself now. I don't know if I feel sexier. I feel more whole."

Since she lived her life without having to hide from anybody (being a chopper and a lesbian), she felt more whole. And when you feel more whole, you automatically feel sexier. Sexiness has to do with being yourself and being inhibited, being natural and confident. Teri is everything I just mentioned, beside of being a stunning beauty.

"I'm a woman who carries around all these layers of fear and vulnerability."

Nobody would know about it if she didn't reveal it. It's all hidden under her leather jacket and her "beast made of steel" (her Harley-Davidson).

"So, goodnight Teri. "Since You've Been Gone," "Smallville" lost its "Momentum." They miss your "Tales from the Crypt."
