This is going to be the best motorcycle event all summer. Why? Well, let me tell you.
Tug of war battle! Lady headliners Lark vs Jenocide and lads Big Steve vs “Hay Little Guy!” Jonah go head to head for the trophy! After that, it’s a f**king free-for-all, anyone can try!
Minibike racing tournament! You don’t have to be good, you just have to have fun! We’ve got the minibikes, you just have to have to get on and ride. 25 cent beers for those who participate in either racing or tug of war of the above events.
Stuff to put in your mouth! The pig roast and food stuffs will keep your belly full so you can properly hooligan-about. Get down on the full bar and don’t worry about leaving your bike on the street if you take a cab home- there’s a fence and secure parking.
Games! Play some pool, horseshoes, darts, or try your hand at our carnival games and competitions! Bring a strong throwing arm, that’s all I’ll say.
Get down with the raffle! We’ve got amazing prizes coming from Icon Motosports, Zombie Performance, Wolf Designs, and me! This list is still growing, and if you have something you’d like to donate you can contact me.
Step right up! Come hang out and party SATURDAY, June 1st, 2013… at the Flying Fifteen Clubhouse (SE 72nd & Fir, PDX).
RSVP to the facebook event and keep up on raffle prizes!
Brought to you by Flying Fifteen MC, MotoLady, and Puddle Cutters Moped Army.

Alright, it may be slightly delayed… but I finished my video from the 2013 Sang-Froid Riding Club Alley Sweeper Urban Enduro. After the event I did a mini status update with photos of the damage to the bike and myself after wrecking it twice. Now it’s time to answer the question posed to me via instagram, facebook, AND twitter: “Can you explain to me how that’s fun?”
Sure… riding through mud, potholes, gravel, grass, and whatever else you happen upon is not for the faint of heart. It’s for the motorcyclists who like to get dirty, like to feel their back tire lose traction. Those of us who enjoy those “oh shit moments” and riding with other friends.
The Alley Sweeper is not about property damage or disrespect to neighborhoods and communities. Motorcyclists are ALL ABOUT community!
It might be Mother’s day but I had to share this one.
Can’t find the original source for this, found it all over reddit and reblogs though…
“My daughter doesn’t know fear.
She doesn’t know hate.
She’s never been victimized or oppressed.
All she knows is love, happiness and horsepower.”

Not motorcycle related, but very motolady related… here’s to all the Moms out there who ride, taught us to ride, support our decision to ride, and raised us motorcyclists all over the world!
I know I wouldn’t have grown up to be my headstrong self if it weren’t for my equally strong willed mother.
Happy Mother’s Day, Momma!
PS. Yes, that is a young bratty me in the above photo. I also wish I could locate a photo of my mom riding the little Honda around the ranch, but alas I can’t.
Lana (who does photography and runs the Women’s Moto Exhibit) and I went out today to shoot some photos for giveaways (keep an eye out). I snapped this one of her on the XS400 with my phone on the ride back to home base.

Cindy Du Long (of Fashion Serial Killer) photographed by Luis Aguirre for a Biltwell as campaign. This is a real woman, who really rides, with a whole boatload of personality too. I really adore her.
I posted a little intro to Stormie’s Wednesday wrench night a couple days ago, and wanted to follow up with a few pics.

At the Deviants CC compound in Vancouver, WA… I spent a few hours going at the BSA frame with an angle grinder yesterday. My mission was to remove the bondo from the frame so I could see what is really going on with the structure of the hard tail, where I need to cut and start over again.
The welds look pretty old judging by the wear and tear, and Wolf told me they were probably stick welds not something more fine tuned. Whoever built this bike must have fancied themselves a sculpter because they chose to use the bondo crap to shape it instead of metal. Seems silly to me.
