Geico Motorcycle Road Racing offered two-seat Superbike rides for media members on Thursday afternoon and WMFD lead anchor Katie Wilkins went for a spin.

Professional rider Chris Ulrich threw Wilkins on the bike of his custom Honda CBR1000RR Superbike with a passenger seat, footpegs and grab handle, then took her for the 2-lap ride of her life. Wilkins had to help Ulrich maneuver the bike around several sharp corners at high speeds by moving her body position with the leaning 400 lb bike.

Katie says she had an awesome experience and has now become a superbike fan.
