Dirt Biking | Carnegie SVRA

In light of my previous post (regarding my curiosity into potentially owning a dual sport motorcycle), I decided to try out dirt biking for the first time! Unexpectedly, a friend of a friend posted a link of Brian Garrahan’s Off-Road Training classes to our Bay Area Moto Girls Facebook group. At first I was a little hesitant…

Amador County | Camp With Me

I‘m not sure how organized y’all are, or if I’m just being super anal because of my small gas tank, but I’m going to attach what I normal do when I plan out my trips: Volcano, CA.  For my first camping trip of the year, I thought I’d explore one of my favorite places to…

New Year, New Bike Goals

In 2018, I’m changing up the way I ride, why I ride, and where I ride to. I ended 2017 in a weird place in my life. Because of my recent transition from being in a long committed relationship into my newly discovered singlehood, I felt like I was living in the “Yes Man” movie. I…

1 Year, 17,294 Miles: Iron 883 Review

Well I figured I’d keep the reviews going the longer I keep the bike. I’m also currently in a shitty mood, so this review might sound a little harsh/blunt. 1 year ago, on November 13th, my dumb ass took the train down to Monterey/Salinas from San Jose to West Coast Harley Davidson, to pick up the only…

White Lightning Campout 2017

This year I decided to make the trek down to the hills of Ojai to party with the crew of Lucky Wheels Garage at White Lightning! For the second year, this team organized a true summer camp feel. Split into two teams, blue and yellow, we battled it out in fun games like the scavenger…

Kernville Kampout 2017 | Ride With Me

Kernville Kampout, sponsored by Biltwell, 805, Lowbrow Customs, Sailor Jerry, Chop Cult, and many more happened this past weekend and a few friends and I decided it was worth the trek down to Southern California to party. We met up in Gilroy, CA for the 5.5 hour ride down to Kernville, CA, taking Highway 5 to 178. Once in…

Lake Tahoe & Reno | Ride With Me

Street Vibrations, the 4th largest motorcycle rally took place in Reno, NV this past weekend. Since I couldn’t attend the majority of the rally, I decided to make the most of the trip I could make and ride through Amador county and through the Sierra’s, taking my time and advantage of the beautiful roads in…

Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride 2017 | Ride With Me

Every year, around the end of September, I always see a large pack of café racers tearing up the streets of San Francisco wearing suits and ties. Apparently I’ve been living under a rock, because this is a world wide event brought together to support the Movember foundation, called the “Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride“. Sponsored by Zenith…

Paso Robles | Ride With Me

Before we knew about the heat wave that was going to hit California this weekend, my friends and I decided to travel to Central CA to attend the Dynaholics End of Summer Bash. There was a group ride scheduled to leave San Jose at 9:30am, but due to the many many heat advisories, Sonia, Fernando…

Rainbow Pools | Ride With Me

I think it’s time to share my secret spot – Rainbow Pools. I’ve been here twice now, once on a Saturday and once on a Sunday – both in the summer, and this spot still amazes me. It’s takes about 150 miles to get here, through highways, one lane roads, a twisty mountain climb, and on…
