Our April 2012 cover model is Natalie from Kansas City, Missouri. She is very active in the motorcycle community and helped us at several Cycle Connections promotional events. She also does a lot of motorcycle charity work with Brooklyn’s Bombshells, which was started by our August 2010 cover model Brook. We’re very excited to have the opportunity to shoot Natalie on Stripe’s Wide Glide for this month’s cover!
Natalie is a medical billing specialist and has ambitions to fulfill her dream career in forensic crime scene investigation. Her hobbies include shooting various types of sidearms, rifles and shotguns. She also enjoys art, and, in particular, canvas painting in acrylic and oil and sketching.”
When asked about turn-ons, Natalie said “An intelligent, respectful and determined man who know what he wants in life and recognizes the worth of a good woman.” On the flipside, Natalie told us her turn offs include “Jealousy, liars, and selfish individual who take advantage and expect handouts.”
Natalie also admitted “I’m a sucker for a man with morals and values, who never ceases to surprise and excite me.” Natalie describes her personality as “Outgoing, energetic, spontaneous, kind, and understanding.” She’s also been told that her legs and butt are her best attributes!
When asked about the smartest thing she’s ever done, Natalie told us “I’ve learned from my mistakes, and the wisest thing I’ve ever done is to learn from other’s mistakes.” On the other hand, she told us “the most stupid thing I’ve ever done is to bestow trust without requiring it to be earned.”
