Moalem went to neighboring Bahrain to train on riding a motorcycle and to obtain her motorcycle driving license, to use in Saudi Arabia. "I was just looking for the time that we will be allowed to ride a bike," said Moalem. "When I was a small kid, I saw some of my neighbors riding a bike and I wished to have this one day; riding a bike myself and riding my own bike."

Moalem, who also has a passion for scuba-diving and karate, says she hopes to be among the first women to drive motorcycles in her country. "To be honest, I was hesitant with what people will say about the sport itself, because it was restricted (allowed only for) men," said Moalem. "But after riding the bike I got many positive comments from people around me, especially friends. My family is encouraging me to do whatever I feel is comfortable and (whatever) I am passionate about."
