MotoLady Three Year Party Review

The MotoLady Three Year Anniversary was actually back on January 12th, as that was the day I started the website officially. However, the celebration took place on January 25th at Deus ex Machina USA in Venice Beach, CA at 7p.

It was a beautiful SoCal day, warm and a little bit breezy, I arrived in the nick of time (got stuck in traffic yayyyy) with a truck load of raffle items and of course Pandora. Getting her into the back of the Purple Prius Eater is always a bit of a challenge, but hell… I don’t plan on doing it often.

Vince from UglyBROS USA helped me lay out raffle items which was a life saver. There were tons of amazing prizes:

image

The raffle was laid out almost like a silent auction where you could put your raffle tickets in for whichever prize(s) you want to win.

image

If you want to win the Twinline tail for your cafe racer project, you could put all of your tickets in for that. If you wear a size large Gringo helmet, you could put in for that.

Raffle tickets, Sailor jerry drinks, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and hot dogs… yay!

image

Brady Walker and Caroline Patterson of Ramming Speed manned the bar and BBQ all night. Thank you so much guys!

image

image

Tons of ladies folks showed up on bikes, many of them ladies on rad customs. It was really cool to see Yuri, who I’ve featured in the past.

The crowd gathered to watch Two Wolves play- they came up from San Diego for the event.

Really appreciated them coming down, their tunes are right up my alley… a little bit country and a little bit rock n roll.

image

My Monster was inside Deus in a nice bright area, letting people really see it in all it’s sparkly glory and finished for the first time.

I can’t describe the happiness I felt, finally having completed the project, just in time for the anniversary party.

Meanwhile, Christina Shook, author and photographer of the book ‘Chicks on Bikes‘ had set up a photo booth for portraits of guests. If you had your photo taken, you can check the album here for more photos.

The lovely Stacie B. London made an appearance in one of the shots, even!

It was an absolute pleasure having Christina there to catalogue the beautiful and interesting people who came to the party.

Kenny from LRMC snagged the beautiful custom helmet by Jeff Wolf. He doesn’t look happy, but I assure you… he’s smiling.

image

His lady friend took the liberty of translating his facial expression for us.

image

The UglyBROS gift cards went to a great home, too.

image

It was a wonderful night, I can’t say thanks to Deus, Brady, Caroline, Vince, Jeff, Zemla, and everyone who attended enough.
