Did a fun little shoot today for a photo project for an Australian friend today. I’ll let what it’s for and whatnot be a surprise, but I wanted to share something not often witnessed… me dressed to the nines.
Since I don’t run any gauges on my Monster, I’ve been asked quite a few times about my phone speedometer and GPS set up- and it’s not as impressive as you’d assume.
Read on to find out more about my ghetto approach to phone GPS/speedo use, and other much nicer looking options for you to use in conjunction with Google/Apple Maps, speedometer apps, and more.
Sorry for everyone that’s encountering this issue and point of confusion right now- I’ve pulled a lot of random stuff off my site and other sites (like the redbubble shop) while I’m finishing the details and prepping for the new site launch. The new MotoLady digs will be complete with a fully functioning ecommerce store where you will be able to buy all the ML apparel, trinkets, parts and more that your heart desires.
So until then, email me if you want to buy any of the tshirts, hoodies, bandanas, or tank tops. alicia (at) themotolady.com <- (I do this because spammybots are evil.)
Last week I got an email from a fellow named Max who’s traveling the world on his motorbike. He told me he was cruising down the California Coast and asked to visit the shop and I this week. I adore meeting other motorcyclists, people on long adventures, and readers… so of course I agreed! Yesterday he rolled up to the compound gate on his Honda Africa Twin and greeted me with a huge wave. The first thing he said, “I love riding in this country! It is so beautiful, all the people are so nice, and gasoline is so cheap!”
We traded stories from the road, he told me about where his travels have taken him so far, and where he’s headed. The guy has been on an amazing adventure indeed- he began his journey at the end of August 2013, traveling through over 20 countries, and ending in the USA for a six more months on the road.
The June issue of Sportbikes Inc. Magazine has arrived, and within you can find some exclusive photos of my Monster, “Pandora’s Box” for your viewing pleasure.
I am flattered and honored to have been included in the publication featuring the lovely Red Spade on the cover.
Noticed the story, “‘Racing Motorcycle’ Emoji Finally Coming to a Smartphone Near You – A Headline We Never Thought We’d Write” on Asphalt & Rubber today which got my nerdy side excited. Any emoji-centric texting (or even instramming) between motorcyclists can now be one-upped. No more blasting cloud following the bicycle symbol… don’t act like you don’t know what I’m talking about.
Here’s the kicker though- I actually dug through pages of boring Unicode website that looks like it was designed in 1999 and found the real new “Racing Motorcycle” unicode symbol.
Which really could just be called, “Sport Bike Rider” but eh, whatever. I’ll be happy if it ends up on our smart phones. It’s the little things, right?
Thanks to Burly Brand for inviting me to help them out with their Slammer Kit install video at their headquarters in Los Angeles! The Slammer Kit lowers your Harley (Sportster, Dyna, and more…) up to two inches, and yeah, it’s super easy to install.
Even if you don’t have a Harley, or don’t want to lower it… it’ll still be fun for you to watch me be an uberdork on camera.
