I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who would say the first thing that caught my eye was the pink motorcycle. And I mean really PINK! I used to own a pink and black Sportster, but my bike paled in comparison to Kelly's bike, which has been totally customized head to toe. And it's INCREDIBLE! Although her bike is what first drew me in, it was the pictures of her kids and the love of her life that held my interest. What can I say? I'm a sucker for a family that is all about motorcycles. I wasn't sure when, but I knew one...

Social media is a funny thing when you really think about it. It’s all about being social, with strangers really. I have more “friends” on social media than I do in real life. Sad but true. However, there are also real connections that start on social media that often evolve into “real” friends and eventual in-person meetings.

There is no substitute for the real deal, and if you're like me you love the scent of genuine leather. A black leather jacket drips with badassery, but its purpose is also practical.

I was a little tardy to the social media party…holding out way longer than most people I knew, “just because”. I’m a little rebellious that way. I first dipped my toe into the water on Instagram and then much later dove headfirst into Facebook (mostly because a class I was taking had a Facebook group and I didn’t want to miss out). Very soon after I took the plunge, I noticed several posts entitled “The Naked Bike Project”. Huh? Needless to say this got my attention. I had to know more. As I peeked in a little closer I saw that...

I have always been curious about how other women have gotten into riding motorcycles, and with Mother’s Day a little over a month away, I decided to write a blog series to recognize and honor some of the moms out there who ride. Many women put their riding on hold to start and raise a family, while others just keep on riding. Some start later in life when their kids are grown. My “babies” are now 25 and 23, and my own journey to riding took 10-years from the first twinkle in my eye, to purchasing my first bike. My story can...
