One of these things is not like the other one… Sofi Tsingos (gt-moto.com) and her Honda CB550 cafe racer amidst a bunch of big 30” front wheel havin’ Harley baggers made by Misfit Industries (misfitmade.com). 
This is a behind the scenes shot from their shoot out in Palm Springs last weekend at the windmills. End of the road, end of the day.

Meeting Sofi & Riding Her CB550 Cafe Racer

A couple photos were posted yesterday featuring Sofi Tsingos and I, and her beautiful blue Honda CB550 cafe racer, out in Palm Springs. She was doing a super secret cool video shoot with Misfit Industries and invited me to come hang out. Miss Tsingos only three hours away? Couldn’t miss it.

She even let me take her amazing blue CB550 cafe racer for a spin!

I got to meet Sofi Tsingos of GT Moto today, she even let me ride her bitchin’ cafe racer!

She is every bit as awesome in person as she seems on the interwebs.

Sofi Tsingos’ GT Cafe for Cause Unveil

This weekend in Dallas, TX, the awe-inspiring Sofi Tsingos unveiled the cafe racer build that she’s raffling off for charity at the Gas Monkey Bar n Grill.

Sofi started GT Cafe for Cause to build a bike with her dad who was diagnosed with cancer- her plan is to give all proceeds to cancer research. A noble cause, a beautiful bike, and a wonderful woman. How can you go wrong?

The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show 2014

Pandora and I were unable to make it to the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show in Austin, Texas on April 11th and 12th this year. The event is snuggled up to MotoGP and features the Wall of Death, a full bar, and works of Shinya Kimura, Walt Siegl, Revival Cycles, Boyle Custom Moto, and one of my favorite motoladies Sofi Tsingos plus a ton of other talented folks. Sofi and Brandon LaJoie of GT Moto (website) helped out with some awesome photos and words on the event.

"First, I would like to say how mind blowing the show was. Last year I was about a block away from the One Show during Moto GP and missed it by half an hour. So I asked to get off work in advance to make sure I could make it this year. I had NO idea my CB550 and I would be invited to actually be in the show! After arriving, I just stopped at the door as soon as I saw the talent that was there.

I received this note from a reader recently, and wanted to expand on her comments. Firstly, thank you Becca for the kind words. Super awesome to hear you wrench and ride yourself. You are definitely not alone!

As for lady riders who also wrench, check out this list of other awesome motoladies you can follow online.

"…I decided to build a bike, raffle it off and donate the money to those who work tirelessly to help cancer patients continue to stand strong, to continue to smile."

Sofi Tsingos has been doing a pretty cool project called GT Cafe for Cause. The idea is that instead of just building a cafe bike for herself or a customer, she built it for someone to win and enjoy in a raffle for charity. 
The tickets are only $25 apiece and proceeds go to cancer research. Check out the GT Cafe for Cause raffle page for more info.
