Motorcycle Contortionists Photo Shoot: Danielle

Motorcycle contortionist photo shoot Danielle

Sometime last year I got together with Wobblycat and Mark Gornik and took part in something amazing. Us three lucky guys found two extremely talented and beautiful young women who started contorting and making our jaws drop literally all day long. The performers were Danielle and "G". Wobbly flexed his camera as the "bendy girls" (Mark's words) did contortion and acro all over Mark's custom built Harley and my stock-is-cool-too Suzuki. The photo shoot has been a hit ever since.

Adventures of a Woman Motorcyclist, Summer 2012

MISSRIDER Conquers Central America

My 15,000 mile/24,140 km ride to Central America was full of excitement and hardship. From the accidents to the good times, it was an amazing trip overall. Along the way I encountered bugs, cows, monkeys, machetes, donkeys, volcanoes, coconuts, mountains and much more. It was a hell of a ride from Boston Massachusetts to the Panama Canal and back alone in 60 days. Some people call it the ride of a lifetime. I call it just another ride in Madeleine’s life.

The Biker and the Trucker

Cat Biker Girl

True Story… can chose to believe it or not. But anyways, I commute up the DVP to York Mills every day. Anyways one of the highlights is what I jokingly call my facial. And that is the dump trucks that travel up the DVP around the same time I do. They kick up so much dirt or spray dirt from the back that I can tell I am coming up to a dump truck even if it’s a couple kilometers ahead of me. My lovely facial… A little grimy but never need to exfoliate at home…

Pink Motorcycle Gear

Sitting on a sunny patch of grass we saw her, in her highlighter pink gear. She climbed off after parking awkwardly. Her gear and her bike looked like they were either impeccably well kept, or hadn’t seen much road. I looked back to our helmets and bikes. They were stained, scratched and splattered. They were seasoned vets. Even my ex’s gear showed all the wear of many happy roads together. Their beauty was in their miles, not in their parking lot grassy hillside appeal.

My ex rolled her eyes as the girl left her bike. “I hate pink,” she declared.

As a female motorcyclist, what does pink gear mean to you?



I decided to do a little survey of some of my female motorcyclist blogging friends from across the world. The question was: "As a female motorcyclist, what does pink gear mean to you?". The results were as diverse as the women who wrote in.

The Hamilton Hottie & Lady Luck

Honda Hawk NT650 GT

It happens all the time. You pick your destination, spend copious amounts of time planning your route, but never end up sticking to it. Maybe, like me, you already have the route memorized, but never end up riding it. Whatever the case, there are some recurring themes in the adventures of the happy motorcyclist: getting lost, meeting friends, something inevitably going wrong, and beautiful women never far from the saddle.
