Hello

fuzzygaloreMy given name is Rachael though at this point I think more people address me as “Fuzzy” than not. I’m just an average girl from New York who loves riding motorcycles.

For two decades, motorcycles have been so much a part of my life that they are a big part of what makes me, me. They have taken me on adventures and introduced me to people whom I probably wouldn’t have met otherwise. That is one of the things I love most about them.

Mom, wife, motorcyclist. Curious, thinky, weirdo – that’s me.

Thank You

I give many thanks to all the readers who have taken time out of their day to stop in and see what is going on here on the blog. Your comments and words of encouragement mean a lot to me. I hope that you have found something here that made you smile, laugh or maybe even inspired you to seek your own adventures, big or small.

Etc.

Give credit where credit is due. Please do not lift my content and or photos without crediting the source. That’s just crap and it makes you a dick.

  1. HI Rachel
    How are you?
    It’s great to meet you, As a rider, I LOVE YOUR BLOG. :),
    We wanted to pass on something new that could be a nice fit for your blog section.

    I want to share with you something new that I created to SOLVE ONE PROBLEM OF MOBILITY: SUDDEN RAIN!

    WE ARE ABOUT TO LAUNCH IT ON KICKSTARTER ON JULY 2 – 2014, and we hope YOU CAN GIVE US SOME INITIAL FEEDBACK : ))

    IMAGINE A BACK PACK
    THAT CAN PROTECT YOU FROM THE RAIN.
    AND
    IMAGINE A JACKET THAT CAN BE WORN
    WITHOUT REMOVING THE BACK PACK FROM YOUR SHOULDER.

    I was tired to get caught under the rain unexpected!
    So I created a solution that we called the FUNNELL.
    FUNNELL, IS:
    2 IN 1 COMBINATION of a backpack and a jacket that
    CAN PROTECT YOU AND YOUR GEAR from the rain and
    CAN BE WORN WITHOUT TAKING OFF THE BACK PACK FROM YOUR SHOULDERS !

    FOR THE COMPLETE PROJECT SEE Our Kickstarter PREVIEW PAGE.
    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/884605357/876795587?token=15c17da8

    If you’re interested, please let me know how I can make the writing process easy for your team. I’m happy to send more hi-res photos. We will launch soon!

    I HOPE YOU LIKE IT!!
    Thanks for taking the time to check us out!!

  2. Hi Rachael,
    I’ve been reading and enjoying your site today. Just returned from my first motorbike tour – 2900 km around British Columbia. I loved it, and love the idea of having a motorbike bucket list – I’m going to start one and think it will include a few from your list!
    I see you’re in New York. I am flying out there for 8 days (accompanying my partner on her work trip) on the 28th. Anything motorbike related that you’d recommend I do/see?
    Best wishes and thanks for your blog,
    Fiona

    1. Hi Fiona!

      Thanks for reading 🙂

      Hmm – within New York City itself, I don’t know of anything going on that I could recommend. I live about an hour outside of NYC so I’m not familiar with the daily goings-on of the moto front there. BUT… I think that this thread could be a good resource: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=125065 The folks there would know the ins & outs of everything NYC Moto and would probably be happy to steer you in the right direction.

      Hope you two have an awesome time!

  3. Just a fellow chica rider stopping by to say thanks for being an inspiration….you rock! Love your posts and perspective and wanted to say thank for sharing all that you share….keep riding safe!

  4. Hi Rachael,
    Didn’t see any other way of emailing you but….

    Have really enjoyed reading through your website and blog. Very entertaining and lots of great info. Thanks for taking the time to write about it.

    A friend and I are going for a weekend ride away from Boston and into NY via 90. Then maybe towards Vermont, NH, Maine. You’ve written in the past about funky roadside motels and that would be ideal for us. Any recommendations for mid NY state and or any resources to find vintage motels? Thanks for your time.

  5. Your Fuzzyness,

    Thanks so much for the link to retroroadmap.com! What a nice person and a great resource for retro travel. Postcard for you when we are on the road!

  6. Hello, I randomly stumbled on your site and was looking at your links page while looking for parts for my old Indian Chief somehow. I really like your to-do list! I recommend hwy 26 in between Idaho falls, ID and Jackson Hole , Wy! It follows the Snake river and goes through deep canyons and around the palisades reservoir. It is absolutely gorgeous! I had a suggestion though for your links page too. denniskirk.com is another motorcycle site that I’ve had really good results with and you should consider adding them to this list! If you do end up adding them, let me know!

    Best,
    Greg

  7. Hi Fuzzy, thanks for the follow! I am following your blog via bloglovin too, but haven’t had time to really catch up yet. Will do that soon! 🙂

    It is great to find another woman/rider/blogger!

    Cheers, Lynne

  8. Hi Rachel,

    Great blog! I wanted to let you know about a free App I recently launched called AUTOsist, which lets you store, track, and share your automotive/motorcycle records with ease. Would love your feedback and see if its worthy of some coverage.

    Here is the official press release: http://autosist.com/press-release/

    Let me know if you need anymore information. Thanks!

  9. Hello,

    My name is Aurélien and i work for Moto Journal’s web TV (France).
    After more than 100 millions views on our Youtube channel, and a lot of comments asking for english subs, we decided to create a new channel : Motorcycles videos By Moto Journal. Now, on this channel, our videos are avaible in english.
