Our November 2010 cover model is Shaunta' from Blue Springs, Missouri. She was one of three finalists at our recent cover model search events at the Grand River Autumn Rally in Urich, Missouri and was also the 2010 Ms Grand River Summer Rally contest winner.

Shaunta' is a waitress, promotions model, and a charity event organizer/planner, and her ambitions include starting her own non-profit organization. Hobbies include fishing, hunting, hiking, four-wheeling, and pretty much anything that has to do with the outdoors. When asked about turn-ons, Shaunta' said 'Guys that are ambitious and driven by day and a rocker musician by night. You have to be able to make me laugh as well. Quiet confidence is also a huge turn on.' Her turnoffs include guys that have no manners and are judgmental of others. Shaunta' also told us she's a sucker for guys who are adventurous and outdoorsy. Shaunta' describes her personality as fun loving, outgoing, and free spirited, and is told her best attribute is her eyes and lips.

Just for fun, we asked Shaunta' to share some of her favorite things with our readers:

Favorite color: Blue

Favorite food: Sushi.

Favorite restaurant: Asian Tiger or Jazz.

Favorite actor: Gerard Butler.

Favorite actress: Sandra Bullock, Kate Hudson.

Favorite TV show: Forensic Files.

Favorite movie: Braveheart

Favorite band/artist: Wow…I have to pick just one? That's tough! It depends on my mood..I love the blues and rock mostly, like Janis Joplin, Stevie Ray Vaughan, BB King, and yep the list goes on.

Favorite song: Ain't No Sunshine by Bill Withers, Sitting on the Dock of the Bay by Otis Redding, and Feeling Good by Nina Simone
Do you have pets? Yes, I have a dog named Bella and a cat named Zeus. They are my babies.

Do you ride? Absolutely! Any chance I get.

Do you own your own bike? Someday…someday.

How long have you been riding? I've been riding on motorcycles ever since I was a kid. I grew up around bikers.

What is your most memorable riding experience? When I was a little girl my Uncle Jim took me for a ride on his Harley, and we rode for hours through the beautiful countryside. I remember that ride so well because it was the first time I'd ridden on a bike, and that is when I fell in love with motorcycles. I remember feeling so free and it was such a beautiful day. I can still feel the wind in my air and the sun on my face.

What is your least memorable riding experience? I don't think I've had a bad memory while riding.

Which motorcycle rallies & events have you attended? I have been to so many rides and rallies being a promo model, and my favorite so far was the Grand River Summer Rally and Grand River Autumn Rally. I had a blast hosting the games and events and met so many cool people. I felt like a rockstar…ha, ha. It was super cool winning the Ms Grand River Summer Rally contest as well.

Which is your favorite bike night location? Well, it was mine at Sidepockets in Blue Springs of course. I got to host it, promote it, and get the vendors out there. It was like nothing I'd ever seen before.

Do you have any tattoos? Yes I have two. I have a rose on my bikini line, and a butterfly in the small of my back. That one is my favorite because butterflies symbolize change and metamorphosis…the cycles of life, if you will, and if one thing is certain I love and embrace change and growing. You wouldn't think something so beautiful would come from something not so beautiful.

Who is your favorite tattoo artist? My Uncle Ernie. Not only is he my uncle, but he is very, very talented.

Do you prefer riding in a group or by yourself? I like riding in a group, because nothing beats good times with great people!

Who are some of your closest riding buddies? I'm a huge fan of Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A.).

Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers? Yes, I would like to thank the ladies from Bloodline Tattoo & Cuts who did my hair and makeup for my photo shoot. Ashton Friend was my hair stylist, Mindy Tate did my hair color, and Tabitha Klinge did my makeup. Thank you so much!
