Virginia Hall is an East coast lady rider who came out to Babes Ride Out 3. She takes some really god shots and has the best crew. She just released a huge amount of photos from the weekend. Check them out here.
The ladies at Strange Vacation let me review their pullover sweater they call the 'Moto Rugby'. It's cold as fuck up here in Vancouver right now, so it was pretty good timing. This long sleeve is a thick cotton with extra elbow padding that feels really good under a jacket. I'm weirdly lanky so the extra long sleeves rule. I'm wearing an X-Small in the pictures below by Blaine Connolly. It's listed on their website here: www.strangevacation.com
Babes Ride Out 3 was a massive event this year with over 1,200 ladies in attendance. It was my first year at the event so I flew down, got hooked up with a 2015 48' Harley Davidson from the boys at Glendale Harley in LA and rode to Joshua Tree, CA with over 50 ladies who showed up at the pre-Babes Ride Out meet-n-greet at the dealership. The event was more than I could have ever imagined it was going to be in terms of structure, vibes, music and good looking chicks! Thanks to Ashmore and Anya who put so much hard work into something like this and giving me a reason to come explore the desert on an amazing motorcycle with hundreds of fucking killer girls. I brought along a shitty film camera and decided to just post the photos that I developed from it, so here ya go:
My two mega-babe friends launched a motorcycle-based clothing line last night. Their leather jacket and striped long-sleeve items are pretty badass and their look book is spot on. Check out STRANGE VACATION.
Babes Ride Out is coming up soon! I'll be flying down to LA and riding out to Joshua Tree from Glendale Harley Davidson on Friday October 23rd. This is the "official" Meet-Up and Ride and all you lady riders are welcome! Lots of rad stuff going on here, such as a free breakfast supplied that starts at 10am, free maintenance checks, Harley Davidson rentals are only $50/day and we will be riding out with the babes from The Litas Los Angeles! Check Glendales site, or the Facebook event page for more details.
I am also shooting photos for The Women's Moto Exhibit during the BRO3 weekend starting at this meet-up. I'll be shooting a ton of photos the whole time but come find me or let me know beforehand if you'd specifically like your picture taken for the site/instagram!
A couple BC ladies got together at The Shop Vancouver and cruised up Mount Seymour. These babes all have really rad plans of getting down to the Dream Roll on Thursday/Friday. I got to learn about their routes, ideas and time frames. Some of them are heading over to the islands and taking multiple ferries throughout the coast before cruising in-land to the mountains. Some are straight shooting it Friday morning and some are driving with their cool little vintage bikes in the back of their trucks.
Even though we left at rush hour, our group stuck together all the way through the city. We managed to stay in a group even through 3 lane lane-switches and busy merges onto the bridge. It was pretty funny and every lady that showed up was just such awesome vibes.
Mount Seymour is one of my favourite rides. As soon as you hit the base of the mountain heading up, the road splits into 2 lanes and there is no cars in sight. It feels so cool to be riding in little groups of 4. I absolutely love watching ladies ride in person. Not able to talk to each other or use your phone and just be in the zone and be with each other brings us together in some weird way.
This little cruise got me so excited for next weekend. Can't wait to do this x10000 at the base of Mount Adams, WA in less than a week!
I've been super busy with the Dream Roll event which is coming up in less than 2 weeks! Lanakila and I have been hammering out a ton of rad shit for this event and I can't wait to see it go down. The first ever Dream Roll is going to be something to see for sure.
For my hometown ladies in Vancouver, I've put together this "Pre-Dream Roll" ride for Friday afternoon. We will meet at The Shop Vancouver at 5:30pm and ride up Mount Seymour. Quick rip and good talks about everyones plans. Even if you're not attending Dream Roll, you are totally welcome to come as well!
