Jennifer, our March 2011 cover model is originally from San Diego, California and currently resides in Overland Park, Kansas. She is a model, student, housewife and a puppy mom. Jennifer’s ambitions include finishing her Master’s degree in family counseling, obtaining her Pilates trainer certification, and working with people who suffer from depression and body image issues.
In her spare time, Jennifer enjoys surfing, snowboarding, 4-wheeling, Pilates, riding motorcycles, and make-up. When it comes to turn-ons, Jennifer told us she loves a great sense of humor and easy going conversation. On the flip-side, she finds bad breath and arrogance a huge turnoff. Jennifer also admits she’s a sucker for chocolate, and is told that her best attribute is her eyes and her smile.
Just for fun, we asked Jennifer to share some of her favorite things with our readers:

Do you have pets? Yes, I have a Hvanese, Poodle mix (Havapoo) named Swayze
Do you ride? I enjoy the ride from the back seat, but I have never controlled a street bike very well on my own. I have dropped a few though...oops!
Do you own your own bike? Just a quad runner.
How long have you been riding? I have pictures of me on the back of my dad’s bike (see photo below) at three years old and riding in the front at two years old, and still ride with him on occasion. I returned to the biker scene when I was 18 and modeled for So Cal Rider Babes, Racing 905, and U.S. Stunt Riders. I rode with and became friends with some amazing people.
What is your dream bike? A 2003 Honda CBR 954. Honda’s handle really well and is light enough and low enough for me to handle, but it still has a lot of power.
What is your most memorable riding experience? My most memorable riding experience was a memorial ride in October 2003 for Brian Esquair. He was a close friend and is missed every day. “Live life to the fullest and ride every day as if it were your last.”
What is your least memorable riding experience? I wouldn’t remember it if it was the least memorable ride I’ve ever been on silly!
To what motorcycle clubs or organizations do you belong? I’ve never been a part of a club or organization. I appreciate and get along with all types of bikers, from Harley riders to GSXR riders. There is a mentality among bikers that is very attractive and comfortable to me.
Which motorcycle rallies & events have you attended, and which is your favorite? I will be attending the Grand River Rally Summer Rally this June in Urich, Missouri as one of the official Rally girls!
Which is your favorite bike night location? I am still new to the Kansas City area and haven’t been to a bike night out here yet. In San Diego we used to meet at Sinbad’s Hookah Bar in Pacific Beach before our rides. Shout out to Cheswick’s West in Ocean Beach, California. That is definitely the place to be for real bikers :-).
Do you have any tattoos? Yes, I have 4 tattoos. I have one on my right ankle, my left wrist, my lower back, and on my bikini line. The tattoo on my right ankle is my favorite. It is the Japanese Kanji symbol for “Dance,” because I danced on and off from age 7 -18.
Do you prefer riding in a group or by yourself? In a group. There is a sense of belonging and a bond that is formed with those you ride with.
Who are some of your closest riding buddies? We are all spread over the U.S. now, but many of them are still in San Diego.
Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers? I have had the privilege of meeting some real bike enthusiasts though my adventures, as well as being introduced by my cousin Gwen and her bigger half Bob to the OB Cheswick’s crew. Love you SD!
Thank you Jennifer for the interview, and for doing such a great job on your photo shoot!
