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.

Yuriko rides a sparkly pink and purple 1976 Shovelhead chopper… she’s a petite little lady… probably 5’ even. She’s perfected kicking it over with the whole weight of her body. Size isn’t everything.
I frequently hear ladies saying, “I’m too short for that bike” and Yuri proves that it’s a matter of determination. Her bike is very custom, making it fit her much better than a lot of stock bikes would. However these bikes are still quite heavy… it’s all about bike control. Practice makes perfect!

Women Biker Gangs of Japan: Bosozoku Girls

Bosozoku means ‘violent run tribe’, the Japanese gangs of the 1980’s earned this named by the Police they were constantly fleeing from. 

In a culture known for having strict cultural norms, the Bosozoku girls are definite outlaws. They ride fast, loud (visually and physically) motorcycles, wear uniforms and tattoos, and don’t take crap from anyone.

In the video, some of the women describe getting into the scene because they were dating Bosozoku guys. They enjoyed riding but didn’t want to sit behind the man anymore, so they got their own bikes. 

Myco Tsutsui from EvoSpo with her pink and purple 1980 Harley Shovelhead. Myco is Itsuki’s wife, founder of the Suck My Shovel EvoSpo blog.

Can’t help but love their interesting bikes, some are pretty wild. She’s got a purple jewel style suicide shifter that sits behind her leg… nuts!

Jessica Maine mid-stunt. Girls… motorcycles… girls that can ride the hell out of motorcycles. WINNING. 
My bad- sometimes the internet leads you astray. This is actually stunt rider Angela Bogdanova, not Jessica Maine. Thanks to LeahStunts for the correction!
