Once-a-year, I get the opportunity to get my girl on.
I’d met Ms. Motoress, Vicki Gray at my first Mad Bastard Scooter Rally way back in 2009. Right away,we got along like best high-school girlfriends!
After shooting her and a few test bikes for her website, motoress.com, she invited me to photograph her crowning achievement: International Female Ride Day, where motogrrrls from all around the globe celebrate their LifeOn2 in a synchronized ride of female unity.
Since 2010, I’ve been documenting IFRD in one way-or-another, whether riding with the pack, or sniping them on-route.
While the ride is a celebration of female motorcycling, I’ve always been welcomed with open arms, often in an inclusive group hug. I can’t complain… 🙂
Did i mention that I love my job?
2016 Meant the 10th Anniversary of International Female Ride Day. Ladies from around the world came out in force, and it was no different in Toronto. I decided to shoot from the sidelines, at the most dramatic parts of the route, and brought on my fellow photo-geek pal Georgette to shoot while rollin’ in the lovely Adrienne’s sidecar.
My pal Wobblycat was also along to shoot the latter half of the route.
Here are a few shots from this year’s IRFD. Stay tuned for a full flickr gallery coming soon!
And last-but-not-least, here’s some video of the fun:
