After a chilly ride the other day, I thought about what I’m going to do to keep my fingers from freezing to death while out riding. Because at 50F + windchill it feels like 40F; it’s COLD!

Motorcycles for Short Riders

suzuki drz 400 sm

Never had both feet flat! Usually one.

Yep, I’m short. I’m a whopping 5’2″ (formerly 5’3″ but apparently I’m shrinking in my old age) with a 28.5″ inseam. However, I am blessed to have a slightly higher inseam than my counterparts, I know. But I’ve still had to struggle with height issues but learned very early on that it’s not about how tall you are, but HOW you ride.

I just want you to know that you shouldn’t be limited to a motorcycle that matches your inseam. I’ve never flat footed both feet on a motorcycle except on a Honda Rebel 250 and a 50cc dirtbike. But I didn’t let that stop me from riding what I wanted to ride and you can too! Keep riding, learning and growing from your motorcycle(s).

Women Who Ride Motorcycles in Philadelphia

Left to Right: Me, Alice, Kim, Ruth riding in Bucks County


Ever since I moved to Philly last January (2014), I’ve missed riding with my girlfriends back home. So I started a new meetup group, Philly Moto Girls. If you actually want to go riding, no egos, just out to have fun please join us! All skill levels are welcome, you just need some experience on the motorcycle in general. I recommend ~1,000 miles of street riding experience. Unfortunately our group isn’t going to teach you exactly how to ride but you’ll certainly get better the more you ride with us :)

Hitting the Apex, Philadelphia

If you’re a fan of the Faster documentary series, then you definitely want to see this. The latest from Mark Neale (also the director of Faster) is Hitting the Apex, narrated by Brad Pitt.

Maverick Moto Media is trying to bring this movie to Philly by setting up a screening in Center City on Tuesday November 17th at the Landmark Ritz Five Theater. 100 Tickets must be pre purchased in order for it to happen. If they don’t sell 100, it won’t happen and your credit card won’t be charged. So sign up now!

And what’s sexier than hearing Brad Pitt talk to you about motorcycles? :-)
