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!

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.
