On The Spot: Brittany Wood

I met Brittany online long before I ever met her in person. She's one of those people who you'll see support her buddies in the most positive and selfless way. When I met her in real life times, she was no different. Brittany is a totally successful, down to earth and badass little lady... Plus, she's got a dog named Pizza. I'm glad to now be able to call her my friend. A couple weekends ago we spent a few days in the desert riding around in the sunshine where I asked her the Road Apples : On The Spot questions and took this chill ass photo of her badass-ness 

A/S/L: 26/Female/Los Angeles 

The best trip you’ve ever been on?: Hm, there’s so many trips I want to do, but so far my favorite trip has been Borrego, California. That place is so magical , and so alien to me. It’s out in the middle of nowhere, with these monstrous sculptures, and abandoned hotels. It looks like a post-appocolyptic Palm Springs.

Tell us something that’s on your bucket list.

I’ve only really ridden around California, so it’s been a huge goal of mine to venture past my homeland’s boarders, and do some exploring across the US. BUT, with the way it’s looking, I’ll be doing some roaming through Europe with the ladies of VCMC, before that US trip happens.

If we came over to your house for dinner, what would you make us?

PFT! What WOULDN’T I make!? Just kidding…I’m a terrible cook. Maybe grilled vegetables, because that’s all I can make/eat. Hope that’s cool with you?

Favourite Instagram page you follow?

Lately I’ve been pretty obsessed with @PumpkinTheRaccoon, because c’mon…raccoons. I also love following @tamararaye, @mouthfulofjoy, and @anyavioleteuniverse. They’re three incredibly rad, talented women who are literally kicking ass, and are people I really look up to in the moto scene. I’ve always wanted to try my luck on the track, and I feel rather envious of their skill, and confidence doing so

Do you ride with any women? : 

Yup, but I wouldn’t call us an “MC." I do have a pretty tight knit crew of ladies I can regularly text at 6am, and be like “Get your hungover ass out of bed, and let’s ride,” but I’m always up for riding with different people - men and women. I feel like I’m a rather social person, so I love the fact that riding has opened the doors to so many friendships with women who share my passion. 

What’s your bike(s)?:

It’s a rusted up ‘93 HD Sportster XL1200

"Handmade Motors"

If you're in the United States, you might have noticed a new option on your explore page in Instagram. For the next 3 days, one of the featured explore pages is called "Handmade Motors" and it includes a ton of rad people in the motorcycle community who are doing cool things. Some of the featured pages include Liz Horton, Jessica Haggett and Dean Walters. The header of the page is a fucking cool photo taken by another good guy from the moto community named Dan Sammons. Check it out!

On The Spot: Melissa Lynn Gee "Moldie Goldie"

"I met Melissa at Born Free 7. She had a very positive and inspirational aura that radiated off of her. At Babes Ride Out 3, we both got separated from our friends when we got put into lines based on the spelling of our names and we ended up hanging out for the next 3 days. She solo rode home from SoCal all the way to SLC after a week of riding around the state, sleeping on the dirt beside her bike, and helping me wash gas out of my eyeballs. Melissa runs Moldie Goldie and makes mega-creative swimsuits, shirts and intimates by-hand for a living. Keep an eye out for this lady if you don't already know about her, she's doing some really rad things and doesn't look like she's slowing down anytime soon."

ASL: 28/f/SLC, UT

The best trip you've ever been on? The best trip I've ever been on is the trip i just got back from. It was my first solo moto trip to Joshua Tree and Southern California and I rode my boyfriends 883 Sporty. It was 10 days of new friends, old friends, burritos, beaches, babes, lots of time to think, and my ears ringing every night before bed.

Tell us something that's on your bucket list. Some things on my bucket list are to fly an airplane and travel the world, or fly the airplane around the world, that'd be sweet.

If we came over to your house for dinner, what would you make us? for dinner I would make you deluxe freaky frito pie over a campfire cuz thats my speciality! and probably Reese's Cup smores for dessert.

Favourite Instagram page you follow? UHH its so hard to pick a fav Instagram, but @puppyteeth has me laughing all the time with his crazy, original doodles.

Do you ride with any women? I do ride with a few girls here and there in SLC, but mostly alone or with my boyfriend and his friends.

What's your bike(s)? I own a 1979 Honda CB400t, its my first bike and was given to me by a friend that didn't ride it anymore! Im gonna ride that mo fo to the ground!!!
