Tell us about your life in motorcycling. How long have you been riding / favorite bike / what are you currently riding, etc.:
I've been riding only for a few years now.
My favorite bike: Dot Robinson's 39' EL. I started off with 03 883 HD and now I have a 1200 nighty..much faster 🏼🏼
Tell us about your best moto trip: I would have to say my first time riding up in the Adirondacks..oh man, I was scared shitless!! At that time, I had only cruised around Long Island, so getting out of the boroughs just seemed chaotic, but it's something that has to be done. My buddies and I were all packed and all I could think was well, fuck it, balls to the wall!! So, I started it up and just took off to what I believed was the best trip I had ever taken! Moreover, I want to say I remember the purple mountains, the clean cool breeze in my face buuuuut I pretty much blacked out from the excitement....I'm glad I made it.
How did you hear about Babes Ride Out?
What did you first think about Babes Ride Out? Well after insta stalking the California girls from borrego, I thought damn, I need to get out there.
What makes you interested in supporting Babes Ride Out? I can't think of a better way to meet and hang with people, from all over the place, that share the same passion for bikes as I do. Babes in Joshua was an unbelievable experience and I'm super excited to share that, again, on the east coast!!
Can you tell us a little about what you're bringing for BRO? There will be a bar set up of Long Island ice teas to help kickstart the party!! Limited amount, so make sure you stop by to have one or five.
