Moto Media XXX Debut's Cafe Racer Village at Daytona 200
An exciting new feature at the Daytona 200 event- the Cafe Racer Village in the Spring Fan Zone.
Moto Media XXX (fb) is the brainchild of Sasha Valentine, Co-Founder of the International Blog site Café Racer XXX and Breeann Poland, former AMA Pro Road Racing Team Manager. This year in Florida at Daytona International Speedway during Daytona 200, they’ll be bringing something new to the event. Music all day, custom cafe builds and art on display, and swag giveaways.
After giving Pandora a makeover I have newfound understand for all motorcycle builds, even the ratty ones with duct tape and zip ties in place of metal bracketry and hose clamps. Perhaps some leave me with a deeper sense of respect for the person who spent hours staring at the machine, but I can appreciate them all none the less.
The lack of exposed wires and cables, the cafe racer style tail section that slopes into the existing lines of the Panigale bodywork… these are things to notice.
The MotoLady Three Year Anniversary was actually back on January 12th, as that was the day I started the website officially. However, the celebration took place on January 25th at Deus ex Machina USA in Venice Beach, CA at 7p.
My buddy Chris (in Portland) called me on Thursday and told me he wanted to come down to San Diego for my birthday weekend. With the stipulation that we had to ride motorcycles (of course), how could I deny such a request? He loaded his GSXR into his van and drove down, arriving friday around 6. What a haul.
Yesterday we went for a ride through Julian, Santa Ysabel, up to Palomar. Chris is a fan of twisties and Palomar is definitely somewhat famous for riding in San Diego, so I figured I should take him there. We totalled probably 160 miles. I don’t have any gauges so I wouldn’t know…
This article both cracked me up and concerned me for the safety of all motorists, not just motorcyclists. It’s bad enough when people are texting and driving, checking their stocks and/or putting on mascara all while eating a sloppy joe… but now they actually have stuff in their field of vision overlaying the road? Oh dear. As Motorcycle USA put it, these ‘Glassholes’ are a new road hazard… and they’re right.
Can’t help but laugh at the caption they added with this photo, "In this photo from Cecilia Abadie’s public Google+ profile you can see her selfie. Note that Google put the electronics on the right side of the glasses, which will make it harder for motorcyclists to tell whether the driver beside them is watching the road or Pornhub."
Headed East from San Diego on Monday toward Campo- out into McCain Valley for some desert riding on a lil Honda XR100. Since I plan to head out to the Trophy Desert Party in less than two weeks, I wanted to get acquainted with riding in sand… it’s very, very different.

There were a lot of dynamic parts of the One Motorcycle Show no. 5 that I didn’t feel satisfied capturing in one frame. So this time I did something a little different and made a short video featuring highlights that really give the One show it’s uniqueness.
