This woman, Sash Walker (link) of ‘Road Pickle Motorcycle Bohemia’, is fearless. Through snow, ice, and dropping her bike… all to get from San Diego, California to Denver, Colorado for the Steel Horse Sisterhood Summit. Damn straight she made it… determination is key! "Even though my VStar 650 was lying on its side in the snow and ice of Wolf Creek Pass in Southern Colorado, I never once thought about turning around and going home."

Mooneyes 2014

A couple weekends ago, the very next morning after I moved out of San Diego, we woke up at the buttcrack of dawn (seriously, we hit the road at 3am) for Mooneyes 2014 at the Irwindale Speedway. Arriving at about 5am, the event said sold out and we had hours before sunrise.

Tons of vehicles trickled in over the course of the day… with some really exceptional motorcycles peppered throughout. The only running 1912 Pierce Arrow motorbike in the world, an amazing engraved Trike, modified for a veteran missing a leg… the list goes on.

Aileen Guenther from The Moto Quest on her first test ride around Indonesia, and wow what a view.

Josh Kurpius on his chopper “The Locust” covered in mud and dirt. Perhaps this is an ‘after’ photo from him blasting through the lake?
Note the camera on his hip.

Misty Whitten’s recent photo update on her Triumph Thruxton really caught my attention, partially because her caption was simply, “Weeeeeeeeeeee!”

Josh Kurpius (photographer extraordinaire) riding through a shallow lake… giant pond…? Either way, his bike ‘The Locust’ makes it look exceptionally dramatic with the long rake of the forks. 
Aaaaand now I want a photo of me riding the Monster through an epic puddle.
