Your thoughts?

Roman Levin DRZ Cafe Racer Full of Hate

I was busy looking at something else when Kenny came sauntering up behind me and said, “Rach, come look at this. Don’t look at the card. Tell me what you think it is.”

“A DRZ?”

Of course, Kenny was amazed at my knowledge. But the truth is, I just looked at the single and the first thing that popped into my head was – why  would he ask me to guess? Because it would be something relevant to my world. And that is the only thumper in my world.

Don’t worry. I’m not getting all smart on you guys 😉

International Motorcycle Show

The Progressive International Motorcycle Show comes rolling in to New York City on Friday the 20th. I’ll be attending the media event in the morning and will do my best to get some live blogging and tweeting going throughout the day.

If you’re chained to your work desk, you can follow along on Twitter or on my not-so-live blog page for the show.

Who’s got 2 thumbs and is excited? This girl!

2011 International Motorcycle Show – New York City

2011 International Motorcycle Show – New York City

The 2011 International Motorcycle Show comes rolling in to New York City’s Jacob Javits Center on January 21. I will definitely be attending.

Though I am not in the market for a new bike and I almost never buy anything at the show, I just like to go and look at everything. Observing the many facets of the motorcycle community all in one place is a people watcher’s dream. Love it.

Kenny and I will be hooking up with Soth from Steady on the Humble at the show. What day are you going?

What’s Happening at the HUB?

The HUB offers informational seminars and instruction on a diverse range of topics. I’m particularly interested in seeing:

  • Lee Parks – Advanced Riding Techniques
  • Cristina Shook -Who Are Women Riders Today: A Visual Presentation
  • Jeremy LaBreton – Offroad Adventure Riding
  • Sue Slate – Dual Sport Riding
  • John Colandrea – First Responder: Accident Scene Management

See the full weekend schedule.

Women Ride

The women-specific area is returning to the 2011 show. Need some information on riding gear, learning to ride, or skill building? Feel more comfortable getting guidance from a lady who has been where you are now? This is the place for you.

Friends Strutting Their Stuff on the Floor
