Did a fun little shoot today for a photo project for an Australian friend today. I’ll let what it’s for and whatnot be a surprise, but I wanted to share something not often witnessed… me dressed to the nines.
Since I don’t run any gauges on my Monster, I’ve been asked quite a few times about my phone speedometer and GPS set up- and it’s not as impressive as you’d assume.
Read on to find out more about my ghetto approach to phone GPS/speedo use, and other much nicer looking options for you to use in conjunction with Google/Apple Maps, speedometer apps, and more.
The June issue of Sportbikes Inc. Magazine has arrived, and within you can find some exclusive photos of my Monster, “Pandora’s Box” for your viewing pleasure.
I am flattered and honored to have been included in the publication featuring the lovely Red Spade on the cover.
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.
My buddy Chris (in Portland) called me on Thursday and told me he wanted to come down to San Diego for my birthday weekend. With the stipulation that we had to ride motorcycles (of course), how could I deny such a request? He loaded his GSXR into his van and drove down, arriving friday around 6. What a haul.
Yesterday we went for a ride through Julian, Santa Ysabel, up to Palomar. Chris is a fan of twisties and Palomar is definitely somewhat famous for riding in San Diego, so I figured I should take him there. We totalled probably 160 miles. I don’t have any gauges so I wouldn’t know…
Over two long years, with help from so many amazing people, I’ve finally got the Monster on the road. As I mentioned in my previous announcement, "Pandora’s Box" rides well but needs tweaking. In the past few days, with some helping hands, I’ve tweaked the carbs a bit and undone some damage from the previous owner(s). While my test riding the other day way nice, it was limited to a 20 mile radius of my place for obvious reasons. Can’t go braaping off into the sunset until you’ve got the gremlins hammered out.
Today, rather than watching the Super Bowl, my friend Jess and I hit the road toward Campo on Hwy 94 from San Diego. A ride I’d already done twice, it was a good choice for stretching Pandora’s legs… or tires.
I have to say… the Monster does well in the twisties.
