Jennifer, from Kansas City, Missouri is our September 2011 cover model, and was the winner of our Cover Model Search at Open Road Bar & Grill in Grandview, Missouri.
Jennifer is a promotional model, and when asked about her ambitions, she said “I would love to have Mr. Tyson Leslie, one of my favorite local Kansas City musicians, teach me how to play the acoustic guitar and the piano. As far as hobbies go, Jennifer said “I enjoy attending concerts, collecting Elvis Presley memorabilia, and volunteer work.
When asked about turn-ons, Jennifer said “Surprises, horror films, and people with good energy.” On the other hand, “Arrogant people, cowards, and judgmental people are a major turnoff.” Jennifer admits that she’s a sucker for Nikki Sixx and Kid Rock. She is told that her best attribute is her eyes and her toes. OK...I’ll go along with the eyes; however, since Jennifer had boots on that day, I can’t comment on her toes, but I’ll take her word for it!
Jennifer describes her personality as “Extremely ornery, loyal, and giving.” When asked what the smartest thing is that she’s ever done, she said “Every now and again, I believe it’s healthy to be just a little selfish.” As far as the most stupid thing goes, she told us “Following my intoxicated head rather than my true heart.”
Just for fun, we asked Jennifer to share some of her favorite things with our readers:

Do you ride? Definitely.

What is your most memorable riding experience and why? Don’t have one, and I hopefully never will.
Which motorcycle rallies & events have you attended? B.A.C.A., Bikers for Babies, and I hope to go to Sturgis someday. I’ve met some of the nicest, sweetest and most caring people at all of these events.
Which is your favorite bike night location? Side Pockets in Blue Springs, Missouri of course, because I like to ride all the different bikes, music, poker, and a super friendly staff.
Do you have any tattoos? I currently have nine tattoos. Two on my ankle, one on the small of my back, one on my shoulder blade, one on my right ribcage, one on the back of my neck, one on my wrist, and two on my left foot. My favorite is definitely my Elvis tattoo on my left wrist.

Do you prefer riding in a group or by yourself? No preference.
Who are some of your closest riding buddies? I have far too many to list here.
Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers? I feel it’s very important to give to the less fortunate as much as possible. I’m a true believer in karma. You get what you give, rather it’s bad or good. When all is said in done, laugh, and it will serve you well. Even though I’m an adult, I still sleep with a baby pillow I’ve had since birth. Don’t judge me. Ha!
One of the best opportunities I’ve had is to work with so many wonderfully beautiful ladies with the Kansas City Jagerettes, the 103.7 THE DAMN Hot Chicks, Miller Light, and the Killer Buzz Ladies. I have the most awesome supervisors in the promotional field.
One of my favorite bars/clubs to hang out at in the Kansas City area is Whiskey Tango in Grain Valley, Missouri. The security staff is amazing, the bartender…especially Justin Rider...Makes sure my glass is never empty, and the owner Shawn Brown will always keep me coming back for more.
I’ve very honored to have been chosen as the cover model for Cycle Connections Online Motorcycle Magazine for the September 2011 issue and special thanks to Larry Hineman and Open Road Bar & Grill in Grandview, Missouri for giving me that swift kick in the butt to enter the Cycle Connections Cover Model Search.
Thanks for the interview Jennifer.
