[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!

Summer Moon cruising side saddle down Melrose on her Honda Scrambler, photographed by Lanakila MacNaughton. (womensmotoexhibit.com)
Lana photographs real women who ride, but with a twist of fashion in the midst of hard pavement and and soft curves. Mixing the mainstream media’s view of women with their own fashion sense and what makes them feel sexy.

Awesome submission of Kate Carlsen from photographer Alex Ulleri (website), he said-

Here is my friend Kate, an awesome lady from Toronto, Ontario Canada. She just picked up her new ‘93 Sportster and has been riding it non stop. Kate’s a big fan and was super excited when I asked her if I could submit the photos to you. 

Keep up the great work. You’re an inspiration to everyone. Not just women.

Thank you for the amazingly sweet compliment and excellent photography submission! Nothing can top a nice shot of a lady who rides, and these are quite lovely. Kate, congratulations on your new ride!

Damn, Lanakila sure knows how to capture motoladies in their natural habitat. This time she caught a few of the East Side Moto Babes; (left to right) Stacie B. London, Jeanette Mekdara, and Ana Llorente.
Be sure to go check out the Women’s Moto Exhibit website to see more of her striking photography.
