This is my babely lady friend Jessica McLean riding out of Born Free 6 at Oak Canyon Park in Silverado, CA. I’m really happy to have been able to see her this weekend, albeit briefly, and want to wish her a biggol’ HAPPY BIRTHDAY on this here interwebs. 
She was a pillar of kick ass friendship while I was living in San Diego, and without her I probably would have been sad and lonely a lot of the time I lived there. Y’all probably don’t know, but I’m sort of a hermit. Jess’ infectious happiness and lust for fun can’t be contained in her own body and therefore if you’re lucky enough to be around her, you can’t help but feel stoked on life. 
Love you lady.

Flashback Friday: Touratech Troublemaking

image

A year ago I found myself a couple of rad troublemaker motoladies. I actually never shared the super fun photos of Karissa, Angel, and I riding minibikes at the Touratech ADV Moto Rally last year (which is going on right now and I so wish I was there). We got yelled at and chased across the camp- when Karissa and Angel looked back and said “Let’s get out of here!” I couldn’t help but follow. I mean, come on… I’m usually the bad influence.

I don’t care what hate you spray at me, there’s something so cute about girls riding minibikes in skirts!

For those that are asking and to the person who just sent me an anonymous ask (I can’t reply, sorry I don’t know who you are) the MotoLady BRAAP! tshirts, tank tops, and hoodies are available for order in any size and now being printed on American Apparel. 
Zip up hoodie $38
Racerback tri-blend tank top $28
Men’s and Women’s tshirts $28
And yep, I ship internationally. These will all be available on the new website that’ll be released very, very soon… however if you can’t wait to order there, you can send me an email at alicia@themotolady.com and pay through paypal. 
Thanks!

Oh don’t mind me, just climbing around on my Monster to get the right perspective for some photos.
When I’m not riding, writing, and designing… I’m taking photos of cool stuff. Yeah, that includes my own bike.

My dude Wolf got workin’ on his XS650 chopper project again last night. Plans were made to have it done by Born Free this weekend, but as happens with building motorcycles, it had to be put on hiatus for a little while. 
Don’t have a lift? Use a cinderblock. Ghetto fabulousness.
