Thank you for listening! Back in 2013, Moterrific was the only podcast from a female perspective. Since then, the podcast spectrum has expanded to include more motorcycle-oriented podcasts and more female involvement! We hope that you enjoy the archives. Below is a short bit about who we are (Joanne and Cristi),where that perspective is coming from, and a collection of media (interviews and articles) to which we have contributed.
I got my start in motorcycling by riding a 40,000+ kilometer hot lap around South America on a Honda 200XL with only the CHP Motorcycle Safety Foundation course under my belt. That epic adventure will eventually become a book some day - stay tuned! I spend my weekdays as a consulting geologist and when I am lucky, as a freelance motojournalist who has been published in online and print media for About Motorcycle, now-defunct Motorcycle Rides & Culture, Revzilla's Common Tread, Cafe Racer XXX, Motorcyclist Magazine, Cycle News, and the AMA Magazine.

You can find me at GearChic.com, dishing all the dirt I can about women's motorcycle gear. I've been riding since 2003 (starting on a scooter) and have moved my way through 5 motorcycles (currently a 2012 Triumph Street Triple R). I relocated to Philadelphia, PA in January 2014 so I could work at Revzilla.com, selling gear in the amazing gear boutique. I also love talking about motorcycles all day long!
