I’m sorry, excuse me? Feminism is defined as the advocacy for women’s rights to be equal to men. I don’t believe posting content about women riding is anything but a feminist tone and hell no I’m not going to change the way I operate my website because I offended your delicate sensibilities.

Not motorcycle related, but very motolady related… here’s to all the Moms out there who ride, taught us to ride, support our decision to ride, and raised us motorcyclists all over the world!

I also wish I could locate a photo of my mom riding the little Honda around the ranch, but alas I can’t.

We need more women like Cindy in the world. Rest in peace, you bad mamma jamma. <3 And yeah, fuck cancer.

Hi Alissa, You know I’m always down to help motoladies in whatever way I can… but what do you propose instead of their current form of advertising?

Please send me an email if you’d like to talk. alicia [at] themotolady.com
