Welcome to RevGirl, a blog featuring motorcycle-related content written by, well, a woman who rides. Not the usual tech-spec rundown, info posted on RevGirl.com focuses on the visceral reaction (mine) and overall impression (mine) of gear, bikes, events, and professional women competitor’s results. I also write about what’s going on in the industry and like to interview someone somewhere doing something cool in this biz. It’s stuff that you won’t read about anywhere else. Yes, I’ll write product reviews, but I’m getting sort of picky about this. If you’re a vendor who has something you think readers would be interested in, please contact me directly at the e-mail address below.
As far as cred, I bought my first bike in 2006 after taking the MSF Beginning Rider’s 2-Day course, a Ducati 999 Superbike. Not a good “first-bike”, but that may tell you a little bit about my enthusiasm. Later that year, merciful Santa Clause brought me a Ninja 250 that I rode the hell out of before buying my Ducati 748. I currently ride a Ducati Monster 796, and will test-ride anything I can reach the ground on for street-riding, and anything at all on a track. I’m not afraid of much.
A lot of readers think RevGirl.com is my full-time job; it isn’t. I’m lucky enough to have a full-time professional career in a completely different industry (think white coat and prescription pad) that affords me the ability to go, see, and do things and then write about it for my own personal satisfaction. My knowledge and experience in medicine gives me a strong sense of authority that comes through in my writing, and the same ethics that guide my clinical practice are applied to my writing. In other words, I check my facts. No ambiguity, no BS. Why the blog? Well, it’s one way to showcase my writing for freelance opportunities, but also because there’s a need for it. I’m bored to tears with women-focused sites that are long on girl-power and short on content, and I happen to think there’s a whole lot of interesting stuff for women AND men to talk about. RevGirl.com (formerly Sportbikechic.com) exists to disseminate information about motorcycles and industry-related topics with an alternative, opinionated point of view. I do all the writing, usually all the photography, and am happy to share any of my content if you just send me an e-mail and ask first.
I love to ride. I love to write. It’s a good fit.
