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."

So in case you missed the other announcements, I’m leaving San Diego for greener pastures- in other words I’m moving up to Ventura (about an hour north of LA) into a bad ass shop / apartment combo and I couldn’t be more excited about it. 

Yesterday Jeff Wolf and I did some spring cleaning in preparation for my arrival and influx of more stuff. I brought the Harley Dual Sporty project and my tools up a couple weeks ago, and at the end of this week I’ll be moving in all my personal stuff. We’ll be building another work bench with Enrique (the other fella who inhabits the shop and does a lot of wood working stuff) and then it’ll all pretty much be on lock.

It’s nice to have more space for my stuff and have use of a nice clean shop with good quality tools… there’s really nothing like it. Being able to walk 20 feet away and chop, weld, and grind whatever you want… heaven.

I’m finally going to feel home. 

The bikes you see are a pretty fun collection, and we’re not even done moving the Monster in! My Honda CB125s project, Enrique’s 1982 KZ1000, his KZ1000 police bike chopper, Wolf’s XS650 chopper, and his CB350 cafe racer project. 

WHERE DID THIS COME FROM?! That is an awesome gif of a moving road through the desert. Awesome awesome. If anyone has crediting info please let me know… it’s travelled around tumblr and google doesn’t do a good job with reverse image search on gifs.

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!”

Troy Corser on a vintage BMW r90s from a post to his twitter account back in July during the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England. “They told me to be careful with this one.” As Ben Bostrom replied, “Classic Troy!”
What, he looks like he’s being very careful! Awesome.
