I always have a ton of people asking about the kevlar jeans I wear. They are Tobacco Motor Wear for ladies!! They look like regular skinny jeans, are super comfortable and even stretch. They are hot as hell int he summer but I pretty much wear them year round. Here's a link:

It's been a couple days since I got home from my New York trip, but it feels like just yesterday. I am beat. That trip took it out of me. Being in the big city for the first time, not knowing anyone, riding a new bike around New York, riding with new people, not knowing where I was, and drinking a ton really drained me, but in the best way.
Babes Ride Out East Coast 2 was so unreal. Just to see all my friends there from California and ride all these random crazy bikes around somewhere none of us knew was hilarious. We partied so hard, karaoke'd even harder and got pretty tight in the middle of no where.
The roads there were super old, tight and cracked up. Everything was really green and empty of other vehicles. It was pretty crazy how quickly New York City disappeared and the old-school small-town vibes of New York State emerged.
I wrote an article for Iron & Air that will be featured in their upcoming newsletter. They've gotten a hold of some of my photos as well! Keep an eye out for that, I will post it up on here as well.
Next up: California for Born Free. Excited to get back to my LA babes!!
I like to link up with other young people in Vancouver who are hustling and doing interesting shit. Brendan lives just down the road from me and is 1000% one of the most dedicated young entrepreneurs in the city. He started and runs Explorer's Press: a print, apparel, and accessories brand that creates some of the most eye-catching flare out there. I'm sure you've seen some of his products around like the infamous "People to Kill" blank notebook, or the "Menace to Sobriety patch" sewn on the shoulder of a good chunk of people I know. I originally went to his house only because I wanted his new "Honk if you're a fucking idiot" bumper sticker but turns out his house, yard, cat and car are all pretty cool & he kinda is too!!

I partnered up with Kijiji Canada last month to help them put together an episode for their online video series "Second-Hand Van". The video also went live on a Daily Hive article called "10 Badass Vancouver Motorcyclists on Instagram you need to Follow" that went up yesterday (see it HERE). As well as an article published on Vancouver Is Awesome called "7 Badass Motorcycles from Vancouver's History" (See it HERE). Or you can just see it here on the best website there ever was.
