First of all, thanks so much for wanting to feature me! I’m actually working on a blog that focuses on opening the conversation about learning to ride, the realities of riding, and what we can do to make sure that we can ride for as long as possible. It’s part moto safety, part moto lifestyle, and it’s all to help make the roads safer and encourage others to ride. I haven’t *quite* gotten it up to speed yet (I just […]

What is your occupation? “Sign painter/ freelance artist” How long have you been riding? “12 years” Why or what/who inspired you? “I sold my car when I moved to San Francisco and hated public transportation. I lied to the woman I bought a scooter from that I “used to ride motorcycles” so she would sell it to me. Shortly after that, I just thought…well, why not get a motorcycle? I wanted to go faster real bad. A friend showed me […]

The first time I rode a motorcycle was during the breaks of my ex-husbands motocross races. I’d get on his tall bike and rev up real fast on a straight shot, totally stoked about the pick-up on his souped up engine, then get all nervous and tippy-toe my way around corners. We bought a little Honda Rebel when we moved to Hawaii for cheap transportation and I figured I’d learn how to really ride (and turn corners) on that. I […]

A few years ago, my partner and I decided to buy a cruiser so we could enjoy riding together. Sure, it was fun, but riding “bitch” didn’t last long. First time out, I tried out my partner’s beloved ’87 Ninja in a high school parking lot and promptly dumped it braking in a turn. So we picked up a little “73 Kawasaki 125 enduro; a “throw-down” bike that I could play around with whenever we went camping. Before you know […]

I grew up on a ranch in Santa Fe riding horses. My uncles were a couple of old Harley fellas who helped foster my tomboy ways. I wanted a motorcycle for as long as I can remember and finally got my 883 Sportster about 7 years ago. While everyone else is getting bigger, better, or cooler bikes, I remain sentimental to my very first baby. She has undergone many changes, but I don’t think I will ever let her go. […]

Ok, here’s a photo that Lana MacNaughton (women’s moto exhibit) took of me riding last year. I started riding in March 2013. I bought my ’03 Honda Shadow 750 aka ‘Thunderbeast’  a month later..I ride everyday and my motorcycle is my only transportation.  I’ve been a make-up artist for MAC Cosmetics since 1999. When I was in my late teens early 20’s living in Atlanta all my friends had motorcycles so I was always riding on the back of someone’s […]

My earliest memory of being on a bike was as a thirteen year old passenger along the highway 101; I was sold. I’ve been riding for 12 years and can’t think of anything I do that requires more deliberate focus and produces more lulled-out bliss at the same time. I adore smelling the trees, feeling when water is nearby, heart-pounding views. Love doing it alone and can’t ever wait to ride with my best friend. The Tetons and Yellowstone with […]

 What is your occupation?  I am a full-time wedding and lifestyle photographer.  Tell your friends!  How long have you been riding?  I’ve been riding for 4 months now (newb!) although I have to say it feels like longer.  Riding just feels like something I was always meant to do.  Why or what/who inspired you?  Prior to this year I was a professional passenger on my man Jeff’s bike for 3 years.  I loved being on the open road with him […]

Who or what inspired you to want to ride? I have always been envious of women on motorcycles. It looked so liberating. I was in awe of their bravery, especially because of the extra attention that gets spotlighted on female riders. I didn’t want to subject myself to that scrutiny and possibly fail. Getting older, I’ve realized that I am the only thing stopping me from achieving my goals. It doesn’t hurt that my best friend (and husband) has been […]
