The Support Behind Babes Ride Out 5

EventsAnya Violet

Our minds are still reeling from the weekend. Sometimes it's hard to step back and wrap our heads around everything that went on at Babes Ride Out 5. Besides the amazing attendees that come from around the world, it's our incredible sponsors who help us make this event truly unique. This only covers a fraction of what went on under the neon lights, so stay tuned, there is just too much to cover in one blog.

Triumph Motorcycles

There are so many reasons why we are thankful to have Triumph Motorcycles as a part of our event. Reason #1 is real simple, they make the best and most versatile motorcycles on the market that are perfect for weekend adventures, commuting, and beyond. They had their new fleet of Bonneville and Street series bikes on display throughout the weekend. Saturdays moto games were not to be missed as the solum and slow races left 1 woman standing! We were lucky enough to get to rip the Street Scrambler and Thruxton R through the desert so stay tuned for the full reviews on those amazing machines. If you liked what you saw at the Triumph booth get down to a dealership near you and test ride your favorite model.

Progressive Insurance

These ladies came to PRINT! After the dust settled, the Progressive Dark Room printed 3,400+ photos from the attendees of Babes Ride Out 5 who used the tag #ProgressiveDarkRoom. These images were hung in their on site gallery and allowed attendees to come pick up their pics as a souvenir and leave a "Why I Ride" card. If you want to feel empowered and humbled by thousands of adventures this was the place to be.

As the sun went down and the stars came out, Sailor Jerry helped to get the party started with some fresh cocktails. The hot desert and a refreshing drink  is the perfect combo at BRO5! It goes a long way after a day of exploring one of the most beautiful places in the world. Thank you Sailor Jerry!

They rode, they sewed, they conquered! Vans pulled out all the stops at Babes Ride Out 5 this year starting with their Mobile House of Vans workshop.

Additionally, Vans provided 5 skate decks that were hand painted by 5 different talented artists and raffled off at the BRO5 X Moto FAM raffle!
