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… Davin (aka MotoGuru) from Icon Motosports at the starting line on his Brammo with knobbies named ‘Sprinkles’. The tassles are the cherry on top for sure.

But this time it looks like she’s wearing full gear. This is what we’re used to seeing her look like… …but I’d wager she usually gears up more… Continue Reading »
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 “Bonerville” sticker on his side cover.

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. [ more photos from Lanakila MacNaughton ]
