LED Headlight | Modifications

Since I can’t afford a REAL Daymaker headlight, I purchased a knock off from Amazon for half the price. I purchased the same one that Blockhead Moto installed on his Iron, so I knew it would fit mine. I bought the “Wisamic 5-3/4″ Round LED Projection Daymaker Headlight for Harley Davidson Motorcycles Black 9 pcs…

Bung King Crash Bar | Modifications

One of the biggest investments I could make to my Iron that has multiple purposes is this crash bar. I’m not ashamed to admit that since I’m short, I struggle with the weight of the bike and quite often have close calls. Whether I’m moving the bike around at slow speeds or figuring out how/where…

Derrick Ward Memorial Car and Motorcycle Show – 4/23/2017

On Sunday, we headed to Dudley Perkins Harley Davidson to ride with the Pacific Savagez to Pacifica for the Derrick Ward Memorial Car and Motorcycle show. There were about 50 bikes in the group, and I think I was the only woman riding (and also the only person on a sportster). -Kim

Biltwell’s “Delta 200” Meet up in Antioch

Here are some pictures I took from Biltwell’s “Delta 200” meet up in Antioch. I didn’t get a chance to ride with the group since my group was in a rush to get to Sacramento for a few other events, but I did stay at the Red Caboose for a good hour before we left….

Pro tip: Always Wear Sunscreen! 

I recently posted about new earphones that I purchased to help hearing loss prevention while I ride, but I also want to share this post regarding skin and sunscreen. I’ve been on multiple day trips where I ride all day – in direct sunlight. Not only do I feel dehydrated on these trips, my skin…

Plugfones | Review

I first heard about Plugfones through Reddit (surprise surprise) when I was looking for a way to incorporate my music/route directions with ear safety. I’m not a fan of impulse purchases, but after reading a few good recommendations/reviews and it probably being payday, I made the purchase. I typically don’t use headphones in the morning…

How to Hard-Mount a Swing Arm Bag

Instead of zip-tying my swing arm bag (which will rub off the paint of the swing arm over time) I decided to hard mount it to the bike instead. I had so much trouble finding a video on how to do it, so I decided to make my own. The Viking Bag that I purchased through…

The Search for the Perfect Swing Arm Bag

I love my backpack, and I plan to keep wearing it regardless of the luggage I purchase, but it’s time to store some of my tools and first aid kit in a separate bag. My budget is about $150 and I’m looking for a simple black bag, bonus points if it’s adjustable for use in…

Russian River Valley | Ride With Me

For this weekend’s trip, I decided to head north to the Russian River Valley of Sonoma. I spent the early planning stages looking up Airbnb’s to rent near Occidental and Sebastopol for a homey vibe, but by the time I got the “ok” from Felipe to book the trip, everything was sold out. Luckily I…

Sedici Fillipo Waterproof Gloves | Review

I knew I needed “winter” gloves after my ride down the coast in early December last year. Luckily, the California winter has been pretty mild this year, aside from the many rain storms, so I got used to riding in the 50 degree cold. And this is all thanks to my Sedici Fillipo Waterproof Gloves….

How to Clean Your Helmet | Guide

After my Vegas and Yosemite trip, it was time to clean my *Scorpion EXO-R410 helmet. I’m using a microfiber cloth, *Dr. Bronner’s castile soap, and warm water. I soaked the microfiber cloth in the water and a few drops of soap, and covered the helmet for a few minutes. Soaking the helmet helps release some of the…
