2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 120,000 times in 2013. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 5 days for that many people to see it.

2014 MotoInked PinUp Calendar Preview

To all the MotoInked Fans –

We’ve got a new project in the works. We’re putting together a calendar to be published in print later this year featuring tattooed female motorcycle riders, their bikes and all around pinup fun! We’re trying different settings, different hair and make-up and of course different pinup style outfits! All photos will feature bikes, or bike parts or good all-around garage fun.

We’ve got two more photo shoots planned for August and September with an anticipated publish date of December 2013. Here are preview shots of the lovely ladies. Enjoy!

Photos are mostly by Bill Bevard of Two Wheeled Photography and hair and make-up is by Breona Mandel. There are many more photos and info to come, so keep checking back for updates!

Where: 2013 South Ritchey, Santa Ana, CA 92705

When: January 13, 2012 from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

What to bring: Your bike, notepad/pen

From Jeff Hawkins of Skillz Days:

“We’re putting on our first mechanical seminar on January 13th in Santa Ana from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. This is specifically for women. If you can wrench yourself away from everything else, you’ll be welcome. We’ll be covering quite a bit about the necessary tools and their use. It’s guaranteed to ratchet up everyone’s knowledge about how to find and fix problems. To make you comfortable, we’ll also show you how to make ergonomic adjustments to your machine. I’ll be posting the address soon.”

Jeff and I will be leading these seminars. We’ll start from the basics and progress to the more involved maintenance tasks throughout following seminars, depending on interest. The point of these seminars is to familiarize women with their motorcycles so they can do most of the maintenance on their own or if they take their bike to a dealer, they’ll be able to pin point issues for the service writer, preventing unwarranted dealer costs.

Please r.s.v.p if you plan on attending to motoinked@gmail.com or skillzdays@yahoo.com.

Hope to see you ladies there!
