You’ve probably seen photos of her riding around on sport bikes in heels and short skirts, shorts, costumes, etc. This the most circulated photo of them all, for sure.
I’ve always wondered if she dresses up for photo ops around St. Petersburg, Russia, but otherwise gears up… and I found other photos that suggest that is the case.
Since I’m finally at the point where I can cut, weld, and grind metal… when I was inspired to make a coat hook this weekend, I did so. I can’t even describe how excited I am to finally be able to do some of the weird decor and art projects I’ve had on my mind for years. My welding isn’t perfect, but it’s getting better with every go.
Anywho, on Saturday I made a coat/helmet/whatever-you-want-it-to-be-for hook out of an old foot peg… it even flips up.
Here’s the [rather short] process.
I received this note from a reader recently, and wanted to expand on her comments. Firstly, thank you Becca for the kind words. Super awesome to hear you wrench and ride yourself. You are definitely not alone!
As for lady riders who also wrench, check out this list of other awesome motoladies you can follow online.
Today I went up to San Onofre and San Clemente to visit my friend Justin who runs the Peanut Butter Coast blog. He’s down from Seattle with his friend Chris on a surfing adventure road trip dubbed 'The Peelgrimage'. After food, he showed me a cool motorcycle shop he had stumbled upon, Montomery Motorcycles.
San Clemente, with a small population of some 60k people, caught me off guard with the super cool vintage motorcycle shop. It’s only about an hour from San Diego, but I didn’t know of much going on there besides nice surf.
