2013: The Year In Review

A lot of things in my personal life changed about a year ago- 2013 has been an interesting and challenging road that has lead to exciting new things. The MotoLady website has grown more than I could ever have expected, and I want to say thank you for that.

Between my first trip to the East Coast and having the MotoCorsa Manigale photographs I took go ape sh*t silly on national cable and across the web, it’s been a rad year. 

Here are some of the most interesting and notable posts of the last 365.

RIP Kurt Caselli (1983-2013)- word’s travelled that he passed away from head trauma at the Baja 1000. One of my favorite races and mediums, I wanted to pay respect to this inspirational rider for KTM.
My heart goes out to his family, this stuff is always a surprise and never easy. At least we all know he lived doing what he loved.

Babes in Borrego

October 5th and 6th, this year of 2013, was the first Babes in Borrego camp out from Babes Ride Out. Group rides were led from San Diego and Long Beach into the Anza-Borrego Desert in California. Sand, dust, ladies, motorcycles, fires and camping goodness. Hell raisers, I tell ya!

"The sign is a suggestion, right?" Over 50 babes and bikes showed up from all over the country.

Another Sociopath Behind the Wheel…

Can anyone identify this man? Perhaps one of you works with him somewhere in the Seattle/Tri-Cities area… and can look him dead in the face and remind him that motorcyclists are people too? And that what he did was not only life threatening, but absolutely sociopathic? 

The definition of a sociopath is, “a person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience” (from Dicationary.com). This behavior, the “I will f*** you up” threat, combined with “you need to learn to follow the rules” statement right before attempting to run the rider off the road, is absolute craziness and we need to put an end to this type of road rage which I’ve started referring to as “CAGE RAGE”. 

Video posted by JammerDuc to youtube and screenshots of the incident to follow. 

Imagine my delight checking my email in the morning to find these shots from Ms. Stunts- some of which have not yet been seen by the likes of the internet!

Beautiful Leah (Stunts) Petersen and her brand spankin’ new stunt bike- a 2013 Kawasaki zx6r Ninja 636 in leopard print livery. Complete with a matching Icon Airmada Sauvetage helmet and Catwalk gloves.
