By now you probably know more about Arizona representative Gabrielle Giffords than you do about your own Congressman or woman but there’s one fact that only a few of the mainstream media is reporting.  Representative Giffords is an avid motorcyclist.  A freedom of choice advocate, and was the chair of the Congressional Motorcycle Safety Caucus.   She’s been riding motorcycles in her home state for the past 20 years.   There is a good report in the NY Times about her background.
