When it comes to turn-ons, Rachael said "I like men with a good sense of humor, who are honest, intelligent, compassionate, loyal, and have a zest for life!” On the flipside, when it comes to turnoffs, she said “I cannot stand people who are shallow, selfish, lazy, judgmental, arrogant, stupid, deceptive, hateful, or mean.” Rachael also admits that she’s a sucker for a man in uniform. When asked what the smartest thing is she has ever done, she said “Quit smoking cigarettes. It’s been about 9 ½ years since I quit, and I feel so much better.” In regards to the most stupid thing she has ever done, she told us “Dang; unfortunately, there are too many things for me to think of just one. LOL. When asked to describe her personality, Rachael said “I’m fairly outgoing, honest, nice, and somewhat flirtatious at times.” She’s also been told that her eyes and her smile are her best attributes.
Just for fun, we asked Rachael to share some of her favorite things with our readers:
Favorite color: Blue
Favorite food: That’s a tough one! I love all types of food; however, I never get tired of Mexican or sushi.
Favorite drink (non-alcoholic): Water
Favorite drink (alcoholic): Crown and Coke
Favorite restaurant: That’s another tough one. Plaza III, The Melting Pot, Blue Koi, Ninfa’s, and many others. Again, there are too many to name!
Favorite actor: Johnny Depp
Favorite actress: I don’t think I have a favorite.
Favorite TV show: The Walking Dead
Favorite movie: Can’t pick that one.
Favorite band/artist: I enjoy all music, but I’m a heavy metal chick at heart. I really enjoy bands like Pantera, Korn, and Slipnot.
Favorite song: My favorite song changes from time to time depending on my mood or what’s going on in my life. I tend to feel and identify with the music on a personal level.
Do you have pets? Yes, I have a five year old Beagle.
Do you ride? I do, though I haven’t been able to in several years.
Do you own your own bike? No.
How long have you been riding? I got my license in 2008 I believe, but have been riding on the back since I was a kid.
What was your first bike? It was a 1986 Honda Shadow.
What is your most memorable riding experience? Riding from Salt Lake City, Utah to Las Vegas, Nevada on a HOG Saints to Sinners ride back in 2006. We went from the mountains and through the desert in about nine hours if I remember correctly. It was beautiful, and although the cold in the morning was unpleasant, the heat of the desert was almost too much for me. It was a cool experience though.
Which motorcycle rallies & events have you attended, and which is your favorite? The Kansas A.B.A.T.E Rally has always been a good time, and I love going on the Michael Bergen’s Night Train Runs.
Do you prefer riding in a group or by yourself? It depends on my mood.
Do you have tattoos? Yes, I have one on the inside of my left ankle.
Do you have a favorite tattoo artist? Right now I’ve been “stalking” Mike Paquette (Big Mike) from Aftershock Tattoo on FB and Instagram. LOL. I would live to get some work done by him.
Thank you for the interview Rachael, and for doing such a great job on your cover shoot!
