Santa Cruz | Ride With Me

We did the same route as my Monterey and Salinas trip a few weeks back, so I was familiar with the twisties and knew what to expect. 17 women, including the Litas Santa Cruz (who rode up only to ride back down with us), met up in San Jose to take the long route through…

Pismo Beach | Ride With Me

Since my sister and her family own ATV’s and a trailer, I thought I’d tag along on this trip down to Pismo beach and test out my sissy bar set up for an upcoming moto-camping trip in July. The only thing I didn’t bring was a tent and a sleeping pad (since I was going…

My Spring Season – Overview

Sorry for being MIA on here, but life hit me pretty hard this Spring. I got a new job, moved to a new part of the Bay Area, and lost 180lbs of dead weight (kidding, kind of), all while racking up another 3-4k miles on my motorcycle. So now that I feel like the dust…

Sissy Bar | Modifications

It’s finally time to get a sissy bar! To be 100% honest, I’m getting tired of carrying around my backpack everywhere I go, especially now that the weather is warming up and I’m taking longer 300+ mile day trips. I also don’t like relying on other people to carry my stuff for me (convenient since I…

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 + Update!

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…
