For many plus-sized riders like myself, finding jeans that fit well can be very difficult. I discovered that Gravitate Jeans not only fit me well, but enhances my figure.
Bell Helmets was an early adopter coming out a with a full line of helmets that remind of us of the 60s and 70s with that close-to-the-head look (appears as if there’s limited foam inside), but with all the modern helmet technology built in. I received the Bell Custom 500 helmet to test while riding across the western states. I fell in love with it from the moment I put it on.
I am finally coming into my own as a rider, a woman who has found a home in the road, and an independent spirit. I am happily married, but within that marriage I’ve gained a sense of independence that I never dreamed possible. I was on a narrow stretch of pavement that ran through ranches of northeastern Wyoming where I felt this sense of permanence settle in.
After a six-month motorcycle journey across 26 states, former beauty queen, soccer mom, and drug addict, Sash Walker was inspired to write a tell-all about her transformational life. “Rude Biker Check: Lessons From My Daddy,” is Sash’s story of her rising up from a humdrum life in the suburbs including a tumultuous marriage to how she got to where she is today.
After lying dormant for 70 years, Indian Motorcycles has revived the Scout.

If you’ve ever enjoyed the feeling of being unique on your motorcycle, don’t go to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Because no matter how amazing you may be, you’re just another nobody on a bike. The exception is if you stand completely nude on Main Street. And I mean completely nude—because if you go with boots, a bikini bottom and pasties, you’ll find plenty of women already doing that.
Even though she and I have traded wedding vows, started a business together and revealed secrets that I wouldnt reveal to my closest friends, the very foundation of what makes us “Sash and Steve” are just a couple of good riding buddies. “Thats the mistake I made with my previous husbands,” she said.
There are times I wonder if Im just dreaming all this. It was in 2011 that she and I got together. Each of us had been married to other people. We were each 45 when we decided the other was the soul mate we had searched for in vain. In 2013, Sash bought her first motorcycle and three months later, we set off on our bikes for a six-month road trip across the country and back. Were now on another motorcycle road trip, but this time were looking to make it permanent.
