Dirt Quake USA took place in Castle Rock, WA this weekend- a small town about an hour away from Portland.
Photos are popping up all over instagram and this is already by far one of my favorites&#8230; Davin (aka MotoGuru) from Icon Motosports at the starting line on his Brammo with knobbies named &#8216;Sprinkles&#8217;. The tassles are the cherry on top for sure.

The Icon Airframe Statistic Helmet

Upon one of visits to Icon’s HQ in Portland, I saw a very cool Airframe Construct with impact statistics labeled on different areas of the helmet. Today, the Icon Airframe Statistic helmet is available to anyone who wants to express (without words) why they choose to wear a full face.

Honestly, I’d just love to have one on display in the shop. It’s a good reminder. Almost 35% of hits are taken straight to the jaw.

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. 

The tale of the Bonerville sticker(s). 
My friend Joe, marketing director at Icon Motosports, returned from a vacation to find his Bonneville stealthily stickered beyond reason. He stopped counting at 18, then proceeded to find one inside the gascap. Aw, ya gotta love co-workers. The best sticker of them all was the very accurately designed &#8220;Bonerville&#8221; sticker on his side cover. 
Well the totally rad Jada, having lovingly referred to her bike as Bonerville for quite a while now, followed suit and spruced up her Bonne as well. 
I&#8217;m a fan.

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….

Working with the infinitely talented Gregor Halenda was an absolute treat- and before all the photos come out for the joint gear review project with Silodrome, I wanted to share this shot from lighting tests that we were particularly fond of. 
While you might not recognize his name, you&#8217;ve seen his work. In the Ducati model catalogue, Rev&#8217;It&#8217;s campaign with Ducati, and so much more. Your eyes will thank you for hopping over to his website for a look-see- gregorhalenda.com.
Huge thanks to Gregor for making this work on a tight schedule before a big trip, James McBride for making things happen from across the globe, and Bill Blacke for bringing his Guzzi down for the shoot.

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!
