Announcing our featured Woman Motorcyclist of the Month ...GearChic!
Gearchic gained my respect for her passion of motorcycling. When you take one look at the past few years of this woman's life you'll see a love for a motorcycling that goes well beyond passion for a hobby. To Joanne "GearChic" Donn, motorcycling is a way of life. She's a motorcyclist who has spent years working in the motorcycle industry. She runs her own motorcycle website, GearChic, dedicated to women's motorcycle gear. Lastly, she's the co-host of a podcast called Moterrific which really gives you a taste of GearChic's depth of knowledge, familiarity and enthusiasm for all things two-wheeled.
Joanne's about to move to Philadelphia to start work at the Revzilla Headquarters Showroom, but she took a moment to give us a little peak into a truly two-wheel life.

One of the most basic parts of motorcycle ownership is caring for the battery. At the same time, we need to work with it so seldom that it's easy to forget some of the basics. In particular, many people quickly forget how to properly and safely use jumper cables. At most most of us will only need to use them once in any given handful of years. That's just enough time for anyone to get a little fuzzy on the details. So, how should one properly use jumper cables?Read More »
Isle of Man TT (Tourist Trophy) is a 106 year old annual motorcycle racing event held on the Isle of Man, just between Ireland and the United Kingdom. It is the most prestigious and most dangerous motorcycle race in the world. The race spreads across the island over 60 kilometers (over 37 miles), spans over 200 bends, with an altitude range from sea level to 1,300 feet (396 meters) up. The natural road course makes the Isle of Man TT stand out in the eyes of many as the single greatest motorcycle racing circuit ever. Only the Dakar rally can compare. Much like the Bonneville Salt Flats, TT is a dream in the hearts of motorcyclists young and old alike.
October 2013's YouMotorcycle Woman of the Month is author Nicole Winters. Nicole wrote a book titled TT: Full Throttle. The book is written for young adults, although we admit to liking it ourselves. Happy, who is currently reviewing the book wrote "It's a light read and very easy to enjoy and relate to." Meanwhile, Adrian had the chance to meet Nicole at her book launch last week and we have a great Question and Answer session with her.

There are few things as awesome as cruising down a straight stretch of road, taking your chances on twists and turns, and feeling the wind brush by your legs. It's just you and the bike - and the insurance company. Yuck. Most people hate to think about insurance, but it's something you need if you're going to enjoy riding. Fortunately, you don't have to pay an arm and a leg for coverage.Read More »
Hero is an Indian motorcycle company. We're talking Bollywood Indian, not Burt Munro Indian. Here in North America, the average non-motorcyclist may not have heard of Hero. Hell, even the average motorcyclist may not have heard of Hero. In North America we think we know what big name motorcycle companies. In North America we think we know that big name motorcycle companies sell big bikes. In North America we think the Harley-Davidson brand is the be all and end all of motorcycle marketing and merchandise sales. In North America we think we know big. We don't.Read More »
