Today I rode “The Snake”, passed the Rock Store, and experienced Los Angeles County canyons with Shaik Ridzwan from the Mighty Motor. We met at Neptune’s Net in Malibu since it’s somewhere in the middle of both of us- Santa Monica and Ventura.
This may be one of the best parody videos I’ve ever seen (and it’s not just because I’m part Swedish). The flare, the sassy hip popping, the military uniforms with synchronized snapping! Oh my!
While only one motorcycle appears in this video, a Zarang ZR cruiser (manufactured in Afghanistan) it’s still right up the alley of MotoLady readers. Because, come on, we all know that synchronized dancing is amazing, and can only get better when you add in heavy artillery, lighting cigarettes with torches, and again… the sass! Something tells me these guys had a little down time in Afghanistan.
Did a fun little shoot today for a photo project for an Australian friend today. I’ll let what it’s for and whatnot be a surprise, but I wanted to share something not often witnessed… me dressed to the nines.
A 25 year old Australian, Chris Porter, recorded a collision with an elderly gentleman on a helmet-mounted GoPro camera. The footage ended up saving him an insurance nightmare and thousands of dollars.
Yet another reason we should all wear video cameras like GoPro or Contour whenever we ride. With most of society automatically blaming us even when we’re the victim, we really need that visual evidence to back us up.
Hey MotoLady! I want to buy a couple of your shirts for a lady I know who's getting into riding, but I can't find a link to buy them on your site :( HELP!!
Sorry for everyone that’s encountering this issue and point of confusion right now- I’ve pulled a lot of random stuff off my site and other sites (like the redbubble shop) while I’m finishing the details and prepping for the new site launch. The new MotoLady digs will be complete with a fully functioning ecommerce store where you will be able to buy all the ML apparel, trinkets, parts and more that your heart desires.
So until then, email me if you want to buy any of the tshirts, hoodies, bandanas, or tank tops. alicia (at) themotolady.com <- (I do this because spammybots are evil.)
Wandering the parking lot of Born Free 6 a couple weekends ago, I got excited every time I saw a cafe racer, tracker, vintage UJM, and especially Ducati. In a sea of Harley Davidson and unique choppers, they stand out like a sore thumb. Just like this custom Ducati 750SS did, which I dubbed “The Ugly Ducling”.
The good looking open clutch cover, clean body, tidy undertail exhaust and bare tank kept me looking. What… what is going on here?
Last week I got an email from a fellow named Max who’s traveling the world on his motorbike. He told me he was cruising down the California Coast and asked to visit the shop and I this week. I adore meeting other motorcyclists, people on long adventures, and readers… so of course I agreed! Yesterday he rolled up to the compound gate on his Honda Africa Twin and greeted me with a huge wave. The first thing he said, “I love riding in this country! It is so beautiful, all the people are so nice, and gasoline is so cheap!”
We traded stories from the road, he told me about where his travels have taken him so far, and where he’s headed. The guy has been on an amazing adventure indeed- he began his journey at the end of August 2013, traveling through over 20 countries, and ending in the USA for a six more months on the road.
A couple photos were posted yesterday featuring Sofi Tsingos and I, and her beautiful blue Honda CB550 cafe racer, out in Palm Springs. She was doing a super secret cool video shoot with Misfit Industries and invited me to come hang out. Miss Tsingos only three hours away? Couldn’t miss it.
She even let me take her amazing blue CB550 cafe racer for a spin!
Capes caught in wheels, baby burnouts, moped stunting, and explosions. This video has it all… and more. Tigerman 2 features a stunter named, you guessed it, Tigerman… and his trusty moped that takes quite a beating.
The whole video is almost one big blooper reel, and it’s perfect that way.
