Some throwback thursday action… Before the motolady website, I spent most of my days working on photoshoots doing makeup, styling, and art direction. This is one of my favorite photoshoots, starring my first motorcycle… a 1980 Yamaha XJ Maxim 650. Heavily inspired by Mad Max, I outfitted model Skye Velten in armor, furs, and faux-leather.
With my Honda Civic chase car behind me, piloted by photographer Ben Reed, I rode about 100 miles out into the hills of Eastern Oregon so we could really set the post apocalyptic mood.
So, if you don’t know about Chrome Bags… you should. In fact, I’m sorry you’ve been missing out. They’re bags made for USING- to the fullest extent of the word. Waterproof, durable, made in America, and guaranteed for life. My first Chrome Bag experiences were back when I, and all my friends, were riding about on two wheels (sans motor). In Portland where it rains, and rains, and rains… a good bag is paramount.
Same goes for motorcyclists.
That being said, I’ve been bestowed with a great opportunity… Chrome is making a one-of-a-kind bag for the MotoLady End of the World Ride and Last Party on Earth! I stopped by this evening to work out the details. Amanda (the manager of the Portland Chrome store) was kind enough to offer me a PBR tall boy. Doin’ it with CLASS!
