Recently I had the pleasure of chatting with Lauren Meeks. I'm never sure how these interviews will go, and that's part of the fun. With Lauren I felt like we'd been friends forever. Maybe it's her calm, easy-going nature, or maybe it's just the connection we share through our love of motorcycles. Either way, I think you'll enjoy getting to know Lauren... "I remember being a little girl and just hearing the sound of a bike going by and my head would turn automatically. It's something that I felt has always been in me." ~ Lauren Meeks      ...

It all starts with an idea, a vague inspiration, until I can’t contain it anymore and I have to sketch it out. There are an infinite number of possibilities. This is exciting, and sometimes daunting at the same time. At its core, a hoop earring is nothing more than a circle made of metal. But that’s really just the beginning… the jumping off point for inspiration. As a designer, I’ve never been plagued with creative drought. Quite the opposite.

Toby Myles • February 28, 2019  I have always been curious (translation: nosy) about how other women got started riding motorcycles, and in particular, moms who ride. Every woman's story is different, and for each of us, the journey to motorcycle riding is unique. This week I interviewed Lili Dobert for the "Biker Mommas - Slow Roll Vlog Series". I'm sure Lili had no idea what to expect before the call, but she modestly, yet enthusiastically agreed to the interview. What I love most about Lili's story is that she is unapologetic about her love of riding, even though it takes her...

Toby Myles • February 13, 2019 It’s Valentines Day eve. Are you feeling romantic and in love? Or cynical and indifferent? Maybe you’re resentful because you’re single and you’d rather just ignore all the pink hearts, sappy commercials and avoid the card aisle monopolized by romantic cards. Pfft! Forget about it. Why?

My earliest memories of Valentines Day go back to grade school… Step 1: Search for the best assortment of cards, making sure the box has enough for...
