Our June 2011 cover model is Lauren from Lee’s Summit, Missouri. She earned this month’s cover by taking first place at our Cycle Connections Cover Bike Search on Thursday, May 12, 2011 at Harleys & Horses Grill, Stage & Saloon in Kansas City, Missouri.



Lauren is a stay-at-home-mom, and her ambitions are to own her own business one day, and to be a good mom. Her hobbies are street racing, drag racing and dancing. Turn-ons include confidence, a great smile, and a good sense of humor. On the flipside, people who are boring, cocky and self-absorbed are a major turnoff. Lauren admits she’s a sucker for green eyes.

When asked what the smartest thing is she has ever done, Lauren said “Putting my family first.” She also told us the most stupid thing she's ever done was “Driving before I was 16…and getting caught.' When asked to describe her personality, Lauren said “Outgoing, loyal and hardheaded. Lauren is often told that her best attribute is her eyes.
