About Kinga Tanajewska

Born in 1981 in what was then communist Poland, Kinga grew up in the small northeastern Polish town of Suwalki. Kinga’s dual passions of motorcycles and playing the blues on her guitar led to exciting opportunities to meet fantastic people who shared those passions; she spent many weekends traveling on motorcycles to campsites, rallies, and blues gigs.

Upon graduating from high school, her dream came true when her parents bought her first bike, a Honda CB450 Nighthawk. Life would never be the same. Upon completing her degree in engineering, Kinga moved to Australia, whereshe eventually found work in the construction industry and got a hold of her fifth bike, which was her first bike in Australia, a Yamaha FZ6.

After a couple years of exploring Australia’s cityscapes by motorcycle, she got the urge to explore the countryside, where she would have to ride on dirt roads. She got the bike for it, a BMW F 800 GS, and then she found the opportunity by carving out extra time between work appointments to make a solo ride around Australia. During the trip, she also raised money for The Shepherd Centre, an organization that works with hearing-impaired children to teach them the tools they need to listen and speak at a level on par with their non-impaired peers.

Ever since, Kinga’s been taking advantage of every opportunity possible to get out and see the world on two wheels. Visit her site at OnHerBike.com.
