Revzilla graciously allowed me to guest blog about gear recently, just in time for spring shopping! http://blog.revzilla.com/2010/03/how-to-be-your-own-personal-motorcycle.html
THANK YOU to the readers who continue to support GearChic.com through your purchases at Revzilla. And if you haven't, please visit Revzilla when you need to order anything from helmet parts to bike parts.
And as they say, when one door closes, a new one always opens! I will no longer be appearing on Side Stand Up podcast shows. I enjoyed my time on the show immensely and certainly gained more visibility in the riding community. I wish Tom and his team the best of luck. You can still listen to my old episodes here.
I'm starting a whole new adventure with my wonderful friend, Carla King. You may know Miss Adventuring from her multiple travel dispatches over the years, and her vast experience in the motorcycle travel and writing blogosphere. If not, well then you're in for a big treat. We've decided to start a new podcast show, based in and focused on San Francisco's motorcycling community. We'll be featuring prominent guests and businesses in the Bay Area as well as everything you need to know about riding in our community. Everything from where to ride, how to learn to ride, where to stay, where to eat, you get the picture. You can find a brief 15 minute introduction to the show here:
As a couple of women who live and ride all over the SF Bay Area, we thought some of you who live in various parts of the country might be interested to know why we are a great vacation destination. There's so much to do here in terms of motorcycling, traveling and adventure. Everything from cruising up Highway 1 on your boss hog, to Dual Sporting, to SuperMoto'ing, to Track Days, to Off Road Riding, the list goes on and on. As we all know, San Francisco and the Bay Area are so very different from the rest of the country. And that certainly applies to motorcycling!
I think our show will give you insight into a community you may not be familiar with. We have so much planned for this show, so please stay tuned via MotoSFO.com!
I'm also in the midst of unpacking my life and have finally been able to settle in for a bit. Now that the shows are over, I'm trying to find some work (non moto related) and work on my website and get back to a normal blogging/newsletter/review schedule. A couple of things on my to do list in the next week besides MotoSFO include: an IMS wrap up, an article in City Bike magazine's upcoming New Rider issue for April 2010; a review of a ScooterGirls jacket, another article for City Bike on Corazzo (scooter and motorcycle) gear, and a writeup on my recently acquired Shoei X-12 Vermeulen TC9 which I've only ridden a few hundred miles in so far. I'm enjoying the new feel of this helmet, as I've always been an Arai girl. But more on that in my blog review to come!
