If you follow my instagram and/or facebook you saw the posts today and yesterday about Emma’s stolen Triumph.
Many of you wanted to know what happened and how she got it back- at the time of the update I didn’t know. But most recently Emma posted this:

SHE’S BAAAACK! Hearing (from a source that I can’t seem to track down) that the fucker apparently saw the instagram/internet call to action, panicked and ditched it near the impound lot. He definitely dropped her, the bars are pretty much ruined and there’s dried gas all over the tank. Had to pay over $400 in impound release fees and lapsed registration (haven’t been riding as much due to neck problems and being too busy). Sucks that I had to go broke to get my own stolen property back after it was only gone for 24 hours but she’s mine again! If I live a thousand years, I will never be able to thank everyone for all of their help. 99.9% of you have never even met me but you all still took a second out of your day to help me out. I am unspeakably, unendingly grateful. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Now let’s ride!

Another thanks to everyone who shared- this is exactly why the motorcycle community continues to amaze me in the best ways. ♥

My friend Jessica posted a (very pixelated and fuzzy) version of this to her instagram- I snorted I laughed so hard. 
Had to make a new version… for everyone who’s just enjoying brappin’ about on their motorcycle right now.

Why We Ride Documentary: Coming Soon

It took me a while to sit down and watch this trailer, despite multiple people sending it to me. Why? I’m not sure. Perhaps because I felt capturing “why we ride” in a trailer is impossible, and in a full length film difficult yet. But also because I felt that I needed to devote a minute of my undivided attention to the footage, and forcing myself to do that is sometimes difficult these days.

I finally pressed play and have to admit- I got goosebumps, there may have been some tears. They did an amazing job showing the passion of riders in just their trailer. After all, their slogan is-

It’s about the passion of the riders, and the soul of their machines.

GSXR love- a couple embraces, staring at each other through their visors. They clearly know that the view is always better from inside a helmet. Ah, motorcycle romance.
If you have information on the original source of this image, please let me know. The best instance of an un-memed image was on BikerTube facebook, but has no source. Thanks!

Resting in the sunshine in the middle of a ride, one can feel a sense of wholeness that feels almost too easy to achieve. The joys of riding a motorcycle cannot be captured with one smile, one photograph, or one sentence. The energy is such that echoes on and on through time, ebbing and flowing with our personal goals and abilities… but it never fades away.

Another good deed done by someone on two wheels- scooter rider out with his buddies sees a blind man walking down the side of the road and stops to help him out. You can tell the elderly gentleman appreciated the young motorists politeness, respect and assistance with his very simple, “Thank you.”

This video made my eyes well up with tears in the best way- these past few days have made me feel very humble and thankful. This video just reinforces the fact that there is good in the world.
