It was an amazing ten days of Laconia Bike Week. I honestly didn't know what to expect before coming here and was pleasantly surprised when I found out that this was a rally for riders! I had hoped that I would do 1k on my bike while there and I ended up doing more.
I will for sure be back next year.Read More
We're almost halfway through Laconia Bike Week and the exhaustion has started to set in. The riding is amazing and we've been spending about 10 hours on our bikes a day going to see as much as we can before we leave.Read More
1513 miles, 12 states, 4 days, 3 women. We finally made it!
Sorry for not being able to post the past coupe days. Life on the road and on a motorcycle ain't easy when it comes to keeping up with emails, social media and anything that requires you to take your hands off the bars.
We rolled into Laconia around 9:30 pm last night, unloaded our bikes and headed to the bar to celebrate with the rest of our Iron Lilies and Orlando / Laconia Harley crew. We did manage to get a few hours of sleep before heading out for our 100 mile charity ride this morning. Tomorrow is a 200 mile loop and even thought we are a little sore and tired we are looking forward to it!Read More
I head out soon for the longest amount of time I've ever been on the road on my motorcycle and I thought I would do daily mini videos to recap the trip. My hope is that you get a real look into what being on the road is really like and at the same time I have this video memory from a challenge I made to myself and was brave enough to take. Enjoy!Read More
At some point in our lives we’ve all stood in front of a kiosk staring at an arrow pointing down to a dot with the words “You are here” typed above it. Most of us never think twice about it but to me it’s one of the best underrated quotes of our time. We’re always somewhere but we are never really “here”.Read More
As a motorcycle journalist, I get to test many different motorcycles, but my everyday go-getter is a completely custom 2014 Harley Davidson Iron 883. At a recent press launch, someone asked me why I choose to ride a Harley when there are so many other options. I didn't even hesitate with my answer. I ride a Harley because of Heritage, Legacy and Tradition.
Packing for a long ride on a motorcycle is a crafty process. People turn into a legit MacGyver when it comes to figuring out how much stuff they can fit for a journey and if you’re a female then times that struggle by 10.
It’s a balancing act. You can’t pack too much or to high or you will lay your bike over on the first turn you make and then not be able to pick it up because it weighs so much. You also have to take into consideration for your gear and extras that you may need along the road. Breakdowns happen and the better prepared you are then the less time you stay stranded and the more time you have to ride.Read More
With more and more women riding everyday you would think that there would be more gear options available for us to buy and there are a few companies jumping on board but remember that we are women and that means we need a lot of options. Plus we come in a lot more shapes and sizes then men do. I also don’t think that we should have to sacrifice style for function and with a little effort we should be able to have both. I like to keep my feminine status while doing what’s considered “manly” activities so taking something that was made for a man and making it smaller will simply not work.Read More
