Mystery Girl Emma from Russia

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. 

MotoLady Three Year Party Review

The MotoLady Three Year Anniversary was actually back on January 12th, as that was the day I started the website officially. However, the celebration took place on January 25th at Deus ex Machina USA in Venice Beach, CA at 7p.

MotoLady Three Year Party (mini post)

There’ll be many more photos to come, but in the mean time I wanted to share a few details about last night with all of you who weren’t able to make it. The MotoLady Three Year Anniversary Party started at 7p at Deus Emporium in Venice Beach (Los Angeles) California.

In review: I finished the Monster (dubbed “Pandora’s Box”) in time for the event- it was on display in the Deus showroom blinging away in the spotlight for all to see. Attendees enjoyed BBQ hot dogs, enjoyed Sailor Jerry mixed drinks and Pabst tall boys. The raffle was epic, to say the least.

Some more photos from my photoshoot with the amazingly talented Lanakila MacNaughton for the Women’s Moto Exhibit (website).

Gear breakdown for those of you curious- sporting UglyBROS USA jeans (Twiggy and Ton-Up), Icon 1000 Akorp jacket (review here), Icon Elsinore boots, and Icon Airmada stack helmet

Major thanks yet again to Tim & Isaac (owners of Trophy Motorcycles) for the bitchin’ 1970 Triumph to ride.

Silodrome and MotoLady have teamed up to bring you robust gear reviews accompanied by beautiful photography! The first edition? Why the Icon 1000 Akorp jacket, of course!

No matter what you ride, you need to have the proper gear to feel comfortable on your motorbike. Whether you’re hitting dual track off road routes for the first time, or taking a trip down to your local coffee shop… you’re going to need a jacket that offers warmth, weather protection, and space to carry all your stuff. You’re also going to need elbow, shoulder and back armour to protect you against everyday road hazards and crazy drivers that could bring you down (but hopefully don’t). And if you’re anything like me you’ll want to avoid the horrific fluorescent design monstrosities that plague much of the motorcycle gear genre. This classically styled jacket, designed after old school military gear, is a good example of fashion and function working together for once….

MotoLady Seven Days of Give-aways… and day three is an exciting one! It’s just getting better and better, right? In case you missed the memo, I’m doing this as a thanks for being awesome and reading the blog. There’s still four more days to go, and the clock is ticking on past submissions so go go go!

Day 3, Wednesday: Pick up a perfectly pink Icon Airmada helmet- super safe, comfy, and this one is HI VIS!

So now’s your turn, folks with an affinity for pink who wear a Medium… step right up!
