2012: The Year in Review


THEMOTOLADY.COM in 2012: just shy of 300,000 visits from 180 of 193 countries. 

In just 13 days the MotoLady website will be celebrating it’s two year anniversary! It’s been quite the journey, and this year has been an exciting one. The Monster Project is taking form (I’ve got the bruises to go with it), I rode on the Bonneville Salt Flats, the End of the World Ride was a success, I was interviewed by Pipeburn, my photography for MotoCorsa made it to news sites around the world, and most of all… I learned a lot about motorcycling, motorcyclists, and the industry. Thank you all.

Here are the ten most popular posts of 2012.
