IMS San Mateo 2011

This is going to be an amazing show! Finally being in / near my hometown is awesome. I live in San Francisco but I was born just 2.5 miles north of San Mateo. And of course, we all know how kickass it is to live and ride in the Bay Area. Also, the women's center last year was referred to as well, the women's center. But this year, it's called "WE RIDE". Trust me, you don't want to know what the alternatives were.

Here are a couple of updates about the show:

Elena Meyers

On May 15, 2010 at age 16, Elena Myers became the FIRST woman to win an AMA Pro Racing professional motorcycle road race, at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California.

She's an inspiration to women riders everywhere. She's going to be at the show THIS SATURDAY NOVEMBER 20 AT 2:30PM at the We Ride (women's center) area answering all of our geeky motorcycle questions, signing autographs and taking pictures. You KNOW you want to meet her!


Second, I'm going to be talking my ass off this weekend. I'll be giving my 'Gear For Your Ride' seminar (covering all my shopping tips) for everyone who needs a little help when it comes to shopping for technical gear including how to tell if it fits, body armor placement and more. So come see me.

Here's my schedule:
