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

Riding through the desert is one of my favorite things, this photo captures a lot of that beauty. One of the best things about being on a motorcycle is the unobstructed 360° view.

Well done, boys. Well done. An amazing parody photo of the Babes in Borrego shot of Jenny and Nina. All in good fun!

I want to personally thank JP of the Selvedge Yard for posting this because it made my week.

Riding through puddles on a motorcycle is our adult version of jumping in puddles as a kiddo. 

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.

[Semi-NSFW warning] Lanakila MacNaughton, photographer extraordinaire, had her gallery premier of the Women’s Motorcycle Exhibit in Portland at See See Motor Coffee on July 12th, 2013. 

Lana photographs real women who ride, stripped down (sometimes literally, always figuratively) and embracing the freedom of riding, being a woman, and having the ability to do what they damn well please. Well, at least that’s the vibe I get from it. 

Asked to photograph the ride to the show, I called up my friend Tony (who has a nice sissy bar on his bike, great for photography) and asked him if he’d let me hang off the back with my camera. No passenger pegs and a very high and small seat, it was definitely an experience. One that was totally worth it, these ladies had a blast and got all sorts of looks across town. And a few honks and hollers, of course. All in good fun. 

Make sure to check out the Womens Moto Exhibit website to read about Lana’s shows and adventures, and check back here as I will be showcasing some of my favorites from the ride over the next few days!
