Help! I need new tires! – Update

Whelp, at around 12400 miles, its time for some new boots. I can squeeze a couple more thousand miles on my tires before replacing them, so what better way to figure out what to buy than by making a blog post about it (and hopefully y’all can help me out too). Depending on your riding style…

Broken Belt Guard |Story Time

Unbeknownst to me, I’ve been riding with a broken belt guard for at least a week. I don’t know how it broke, but I can assume it was on the highway going over a bump or dip in the concrete. I managed to zip tie the top part to the frame to keep it from actually touching…

PSA: Big Sur CLOSED

To anyone out there planning a trip up/down the coast along Big Sur: plan ahead. Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge on Highway 1 cracked and continues to sink and deteriorate, leaving the bridge inaccessible for travelers wanting to take a trip along the coast. The road is only open on certain hours on the weekends to allow…

“Women-Only” Motorcycle Clubs: Did We Offend You?

Recently, in hopes of gaining some inspiration on the internet,  I’ve been watching videos on YouTube about women motorcycle clubs, networks, and “gangs”. The Missfires, the Litas, Caramel Curves, you name it. As a woman, I feel empowered and inspired after watching these videos, until I start reading through the comments…. Many men felt it necessary…

Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar

Ok, I know this isn’t motorcycle related, but I had to share my review of the Master of Malt Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar!

2016 in Review

I was inspired by Roxy Moto to do a year in review. At first, I didn’t really think I’d have a list big enough to warrant a blog post, but I have accomplished so much this year I thought I’d share! In 2016, I was able to cross a ton of concerts off my bucket list….

Done for the Season

Winter is here in Northern California, and I think I’m calling it for the rest of the year. I rode out to Half Moon Bay on Sunday, December 11th, and down to Pescadero, for a ~100 mile ride looping through 92 and 84. It was a brisk ride when I rode out, but as soon…

Bad and Good Service Experience

When I purchased my motorcycle from Monterey Harley Davidson, they installed my chiseled bars, which included changing the brake and clutch cables and adjusting the right and left switch pack (where the turn signals are). The day I picked up the bike, I noticed the clutch cable was routed in front of the odometer (obstructing my…

Back on the Saddle!

So I’ve had my new 2017 Iron 883 for a few weeks now. It’s been too cold to go on any long rides this Fall, so I haven’t been able to update my Ride With Me blog section. I figured I’d at least update you all on here. I’ve been commuting on my new bike…

The Aftermath – Avoiding Collisions and Getting Back on the Saddle

Avoiding Collisions Gear  First of all, lets talk about gear. I definitely started out as an ATGATT person, but as I got more comfortable riding, I would ride without my protective jacket and just a regular jacket. Then I started riding more often with a mall-leather jacket, and this summer I started riding with no…
