There is only one word that can describe Alina, and that is 'motorcycle freak'. Ok, that's two words.

After careful consideration, we came up with the conclusion that her passion for the Asian Honda bikes or the more European Ducati is based on the ancestral bond between man (in our case woman) and horse. And what is a motorcycle if not an entire troop of horses?
