I’m so excited to announce the project that I’ve been working on for two years… a book all about badass motorcycling women! In the MotoLady’s Book of Women Who Ride you’ll meet 74 of the most influencial motorcyclists of the last century. Motorcycle heroes, trailblazers, and record-breakers like Jessi Combs, Shayna Texter, Laia Sanz, Gloria Tramontin-Struck, the Van Buren sisters, and more can be found inside the 184 pages of this hard cover book celebrating motorcycling women!
Vintage Bikes on the Dirt in Denver
A crew of motorcycle lovin’ friends from Denver decided to hit the track once the winter weather finally broke, heading out to IMI Motorsports Complex in Dacano, Colorado for some dirt.
Fun folks make for fun photos- and there’s no exception with these images that Kate Jacobson caught of riders Abby Anderson, Taura Deacon, and Liz Horton playing around on their vintage bikes. They’re headed to Motos in Moab with Taura’s boyfriend Caleb Holland, Ben Giese (creative director of Meta Magazine), and Wesley Case (of Threepence) in a few weeks, so they needed to get some practice in after the long Colorado winter! Motos in Moab is a motorcycle rally over Memorial Day Weekend put on by Salt City Builds.
“Ben ran circles around Taura and Abby while they goofed off with their vintage bikes. Wes handed over his rebuilt XS650 to his lady, Liz, to rip on while he grabbed some shade. Caleb tweaked his and his girlfriend, Taura’s, bikes until he could rip on the track. Kate took photos before trying out Abby’s Honda CL 350, since she hasn’t heard back from a guy on Craigslist about an old Honda yet.”
The Icon 1000 Akorp jacket (above) is also one of my fav riding jackets, one of two I most often pull out of my closet when I go hop on the bike. Check out the Akorp photo gallery by Gregor Halenda for Silodrome, or take a gander at the wax canvas adventure jacket on Revzilla.
