Announcing our featured Woman Motorcyclist of the Month ...GearChic!
Gearchic gained my respect for her passion of motorcycling. When you take one look at the past few years of this woman's life you'll see a love for a motorcycling that goes well beyond passion for a hobby. To Joanne "GearChic" Donn, motorcycling is a way of life. She's a motorcyclist who has spent years working in the motorcycle industry. She runs her own motorcycle website, GearChic, dedicated to women's motorcycle gear. Lastly, she's the co-host of a podcast called Moterrific which really gives you a taste of GearChic's depth of knowledge, familiarity and enthusiasm for all things two-wheeled.
Joanne's about to move to Philadelphia to start work at the Revzilla Headquarters Showroom, but she took a moment to give us a little peak into a truly two-wheel life.
Isle of Man TT (Tourist Trophy) is a 106 year old annual motorcycle racing event held on the Isle of Man, just between Ireland and the United Kingdom. It is the most prestigious and most dangerous motorcycle race in the world. The race spreads across the island over 60 kilometers (over 37 miles), spans over 200 bends, with an altitude range from sea level to 1,300 feet (396 meters) up. The natural road course makes the Isle of Man TT stand out in the eyes of many as the single greatest motorcycle racing circuit ever. Only the Dakar rally can compare. Much like the Bonneville Salt Flats, TT is a dream in the hearts of motorcyclists young and old alike.
October 2013's YouMotorcycle Woman of the Month is author Nicole Winters. Nicole wrote a book titled TT: Full Throttle. The book is written for young adults, although we admit to liking it ourselves. Happy, who is currently reviewing the book wrote "It's a light read and very easy to enjoy and relate to." Meanwhile, Adrian had the chance to meet Nicole at her book launch last week and we have a great Question and Answer session with her.
