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. I asked photographer Scott Toepfer for some assistance, so he stopped by the shop today to see what we could make happen. Scott is known for his striking motorcycle photography and video, “It’s Better in the Wind”. So I pulled out my lil red dress and got all done up. My Gasoline Glamour (gasolineglamour.com) anchor… Continue Reading »
The lovely Pandora and I went for an evening ride on this overcast and warm Ventura day. Soft clouds make for great photos, it’s a giant softbox in the sky dampening and washing all the sun around. (For those that don’t know, a soft box is used in professional lighting for video and photo shoots to make light more even and spread out.) These shots were taken at Serra Cross Park above Downtown Ventura, CA. To the right of the images there’s a giant cross overlooking the ocean. I can see this… Continue Reading »
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. While my fancy iPhone mount is in the works (I’m going to make something so it’ll blend in with the Monster’s custom dash) I went to an… Continue Reading »
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. It includes a short article I wrote about the completion of the bike, which you can read online for free at SportbikesIncMag.com. ▲ [ more MotoLady in the press ]
Oh don’t mind me, just climbing around on my Monster to get the right perspective for some photos. When I’m not riding, writing, and designing… I’m taking photos of cool stuff. Yeah, that includes my own bike.
Throwback Thursday (Jan. 24th, 2013) – The Monster when it was still a pile of parts, just before reassembly with the help of Sage Wilkinson and Nobi Iso. We’ve come so far. [ more tagged Monster Project ]
So if you missed the short 15 sec video of me on the Monster via the motolady instagram, here’s the uncropped version. Oh and before you ask, the van is Jeff Wolf‘s 1962 Ford Econoline with bags in the back. Yup, it’s a tail dragger. Gear: Icon Airmada Stack, Rev’It Jerez Gloves, Dainese 400GT D-Dry jacket, UglyBROS-usa Twiggy riding jeans (with armor!), Icon Sacred Tall boots. (Source: http://www.tumblr.com/)
Took the Monster out in my new home base town of Ventura for the first time today to run some errands, made a pit stop at Surfer’s Point to check out the ocean. Why? Because I can! Wolf helped me out and grabbed a quick 15 second video of me taking off from the compound on Pandora, if you want to check it out click here and pop over to the motolady instagram.

Giving my Monster, aka ‘Pandora’s Box’, a sponge bath on this lovely 80°F sunny San Diego day. Yeah, sometimes she gets washed before and after a ride. So what? Gotta treat the ladies right if you want them to do the same.
