Thursday, October 8, 2015 was the date, and Shawnee Cycle Plaza was the place for the 4th Annual Biker Diva Fashion Show. Not only did the guests get to see lots of great motorcycle clothing and accessories, but they also contributed money to benefit Susan G. Komen Greater Kansas City in the fight against breast cancer.

For this month's issue, we invite you to take a look behind the scenes at our November 2015 Cover Shoot video, which follows cover model Lynda through her photo shoot and interview,and make sure to check out the specs and additional photos of this 1997 Harley-Davidson Heritage Springer and our interview with bike owner Wayne Kozak.  

Lynda from Overland Park, Kansas is our November 2015 cover model. She is a reimbursement specialist, and when asked about her ambitions, Lynda said “To buy a house, get married, and then have another baby.” Lynda’s hobbies include flathead fishing, working out, scuba diving, and attending car shows. When asked about turn-ons, she said “A guy with ambitions, a good sense of humor, a gentleman, tattoos, confidence, and a family guy.” On the flipside, she told us “Being too ornery; there’s a limit. Also someone who is disrespectful, has bad hygiene, and is negative” is a big turnoff.

Our November 2015 cover bike is owned by Wayne Kozak from Overland Park, Kansas. We had the opportunity to gather more information about Wayne and his 1997 Harley-Davidson Heritage Springer, and make sure to check out the video below, to see just a few of the priceless collectibles he's gathered over the years for his personal Harley-Davidson museum. Not only did Wayne save the original bill of sale, but he's also saved every part, accessory and service receipt since he bought the bike new in 1997. He even has the original straps that held the bike in the crate when it was shipped to the dealership. I have a feeling you'll never see another documented bike like this one, so make sure to check out the video. It's well worth a watch!

Our October 2015 cover model is Anna from Kansas City, Missouri. She is the assistant manager for a local restaurant, and when asked about her ambitions, Anna said “To be the best parent possible!” Anna’s hobbies include watching her kids play baseball, riding, and anything outdoors. When asked about turn-ons, she said “A tall guy with a good personality.” On the flipside, she told us “A guy that is all about himself” is a big turnoff.

Our October 2015 cover bike is owned by Rich Aubrey Jr. from St. Joseph, Missouri. We had the opportunity to gather more information about Rich and his 2008 Big Bear Chopper Sled Pro-Street, and we also gathered more information from this month’s cover model Anna
