Alyssa Borella sure has some beautiful eyes. Her helmet portraits are exceptionally striking.
Earlier today I saw an amusing facebook post from Georgeina Schaller, “Yes, I am a girl in a dress, with knitting needles sticking out of my bag, on a motorcycle. Try not to stare. Or cat call me.”
After begging for a picture, she found someone to snap one. Her riding pants are covered by her long dress, which is kind of great.
Damn, Lanakila sure knows how to capture motoladies in their natural habitat. This time she caught a few of the East Side Moto Babes; (left to right) Stacie B. London, Jeanette Mekdara, and Ana Llorente.
Be sure to go check out the Women’s Moto Exhibit website to see more of her striking photography.

Portland is a great town. I start my post with this for a couple reasons. First, I’ve gotten about five emails in the last week asking if I live in Oregon/Portland. To clarify… I live in Portland. I was born and raised in the Portland metro area. I wanted to move up until I actually could, and then I realized this place was all too awesome to up and leave.
Boy am I glad I stuck it out. As I’ve taken up motorcycling and started frequenting events here, I couldn’t be more happy with the motorcycling community in which I live. I’m currently working on the planning stages of a cool [big] project and because of this I am visiting people and shops around town, talking ideas and getting feedback for what I’m doing. Some colleagues and friends pointed me in the direction of some shops I’d never actually been to. One of which being the aptly named Moto Galore. Long story short this spot further reinforced how many cool people and places there are in this small town.

Anonymous asked: help help !!!so just brought a ducati monster 600 (2001) and im in the process of fixing her up , but ive just realised !!!! argh where do i put my paniers and tent when i go camping and rallys ????? any ideas ???? the soft luggage ive got drops on to the exhaust so is no good ,please dont say a top box as i really dont like them ! have you got any suggestions
Hahaha. I’m sorry, I can’t help but laugh at the panic in which you asked this. Take a breath. Ducati Monsters aren’t rally or camping bikes in my minds eye, but I’m sure there are options. Firstly, without information about where your exhaust sits (high, low mount) and such, I don’t really know what to tell you!
Look into getting hard case side mount saddle bags that have a bracket. This might be hard to find for older Monsters, but I’m sure you can peruse ebay and the Ducati Monster Forums for help. Sign up, post an advice thread… people are usually pretty helpful and will have more experience with this than I will.
My Monster has no tail, so I’ll be unable to mount any saddle bags. My tank is so fancy I won’t be mounting any top boxes either. So, everything I take anywhere with me will be trapped to my back.

I finally witnessed it in real life… a dog on a motorcycle.
Ray Gordon is stylin’ on his new ride, rockin’ the Biltwell Gringo helmet. He recently traded his Triumph for this 1990 Harley FXR, now named “Ron Burgundy”.

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.
