Hello beautiful windbrothers and windsisters. Riding season is here for everyone. The snowbirds can rock that throttle now!
Welcome to the first newsletter of 2009. I decided to send it for St. Patrick's Day because it's such a big party day. Very cheerful and fun. Riding a motorcycle or tooling around in a hot rod is always cause for celebration too....
Yes, there's been so many changes in the world of this writer and artist. Most of you know that I have relocated from NYC to Nashville, TN. Though, I still go home to NYC so I might as well have two homes! Who Said A City Girl Can't B Country? eh?
The time has come upon us all to unite even tighter than ever and to be as innovative and resourceful as possible. This is a time for us to reach deep into our creative being and experiment, become like children and tap into the wonder of not having all the answers, so that we can be led to discover our inner strength and power in the face of adversity. We all have it in ourselves to rise up, to be true and spirited, to be there for one another, and to make lemon out of lemonade, open a stand and create a profit from our talents.
My website is still maintained by little ol' me and I'm looking forward to having it done professionally so that it looks cleaner and sleeker. There's an investor who has been considering my merch line and this is really good news after so many false starts. I've collected lots of design ideas for my line. Got a keepin on keepin on no matter what!
I would love to hear your stories about how your motorcycle is your motorvator during the most challenging moments of your lives. How does your motorcycle inspire you to live your dreams? Share with me the stories and if you allow me to do so, I'm going to post some of them in my newsletters and blogs because we all need to feel inspired. Email your stories to email@example.com
Chrome Cowgirl's Guide to the Motorcycle Life (MBI Publishing)
It's finally here! My second book. In the spirit of 'Bad Girl's Guide to the Open Road' meets 'Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance,' this book is fun, high spirited, and makes you want to escape life as you know it and take to the open road whether you ride or not!

The publisher is creating a comprehensive blog and social site to support the book and when the design team has completed their finishing touches, I will send you the link to it. There are lots of Chrome Cowgirls out there and we need to connect and unite as one big posse of girl power riders!
Available in bookstores everywhere and at all online retailers. Cool.
Sasha & Motoroadeo MMC - "Ridelicious" album single debuts - Road Diva Music
Sasha & Motoroadeo MMC is a music project that has been in the works for several years. I'm happy to announce that the first single, "Ridelicious," from the forth coming album, is available at your favorite online retailer (I-Tunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, Napster, and more).
The live act is in the planning stages and will feature several awesome Nashville musicians who live to ride and love the motorcycle lifestyle, the hot rod culture, and just about anything to do with wheels and the road. You'll also see my budding DJ skills during the live Motoroadeo show and my VJ mixing skills too.
The single Ridelicious features producer, bass player and arranger, Pat Lassiter who is also the bass player for Tracy Lawrence; Shawn Hughes who is now the drummer for Jasmine Cain; Jeff Caughron also from Jasmine Cain on guitar. I'm on lead and backing vocals and did some of the loop programming and co-produced, too. The track was mixed by Rich Travali and mastered by an NYC legend.
The full album containing 14 tracks will be released this year. More about the full release will be available soon.
In the meantime, feel free to go to my music myspace where you can hear some of my other songs (demos) which are now in the process of becoming fully produced tracks. I'll keep you updated on the progress of my music project
She Rides a Motorcycle - a documentary film project.
Since writing Bikerlady: Living & Riding Free! I've been keen on creating a unique film about the history of women in motorcycles presented from a very artistic and grass roots perspective. I'm pleased to announce that this project is officially underway. We are collecting information now about legendary riders from around the world, pioneers in the industry, motorsports legends, celebrities and regular gals who ride to live. More about the co-producers and this project will be formally announced within the next month. The forthcoming website will detail all information. To get the ball rolling now, submit information for consideration in the form of a brief letter explaining your participation in the motorcycle culture, or perhaps someone you know. Then we'll coordinate from there, once we receive your letter.
Yes, my windfamily, this is a passion project that celebrates our love for two wheels and the wonderfully diverse culture within this lifestyle.
You can e-mail your letter of introduction directly to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Celebrate another year around the sun and shine!
My dear windones, reach out to me on Facebook, Myspace, or Twitter by going to bikerlady which will link you to everything else. I would love to hear from you and stay connected!
