Managed to go riding with Steve West from Silver Piston while he was in town from Atlanta today- from Ventura to Santa Paula via the 150. 

It was a fun collection of bikes- two Ducati Monsters, a Norton with a Vincent engine, and a Honda CB750. We stopped for some photos in front of Lake Casitas, and had lunch at an Italian joint on Hwy 150. Totally forgot the name of it, though. 

See? Male models get draped over motorcycles too. Jon Kortajarena is a prominent Spanish model and actor who’s appeared in countless big brand campaigns including Versace, Diesel, and Armani… but I haven’t found any media showing that he actually rides. That being said, I figured some of y’all would enjoy some eye candy.

Rachel Previt on her Harley cafe custom by Redmax Speed Shop in the UK- Norton tank, custom paint, seat, tail, exhaust… good stuff for a lovely motolady.

Awesome shot of a Norton Model 18 (1928) Norton International.
Post script: After a couple tips from readers and closer inspection of a few photographs I&#8217;ve been corrected that this is an International. I think it&#8217;s a Norton International 1935 M40. Feel free to correct me if I&#8217;m wrong, I&#8217;ll admit I can be sometimes! ;)

Woman on a Norton
[side note] I&#8217;m pretty sure this photographer has done a series of Women and Motorcycles. I&#8217;ve seen a very similar photo in style, with the same border. I want to know who did them- because they&#8217;re quite lovely. Thank you to readers easilyerased and truebikerspirit for sending me the crediting information for this photographer. I appreciate it!
