Chanel from Overland Park, Kansas is our February 2011 cover model. She works full time in a law office, is a full time grad student, and somehow finds time to also be a highly successful model. Her short-term goal is to graduate this year with a Masters of Science degree in Management.
Chanel was also Miss XDL 2010, in which she traveled around the country representing the XDL Championship Series. In case you were wondering, XDL stands for Extreme Drifting League, in which the nation’s top-rated professional stunt bike riders compete in seven competitions, starting with the FMF Cup, which is the national championship event. The rider with the most points in FMF Cup at the end of the season is the XDL and National Champion.
In her spare time, which is quite rare, Chanel enjoys travel and riding her Kawasaki Ninja. When it comes to turn-ons, Chanel told us she looks for confidence, a great sense of humor, and a kind heart. On the flip-side, arrogance is a huge turnoff for her.
Just for fun, we asked Chanel to share some of her favorite things with our readers:
Favorite color: Silver
Favorite food: Ambrosia
Do you have pets? Yes, I have a Clown Fish
Do you ride? Yes, I ride a white Kawasaki Ninja, and am looking to buy a new bike this spring.
What do you like most about your Ninja? It was just a starter bike to teach me how to ride, and I am going to be purchasing a faster bike (600) this spring.
How long have you been riding? I’ve been riding a little over two years.
What is your most memorable riding experience? I love riding out in the country. There is something peaceful about riding out in the open air and without the hustle and bustle of my everyday life.
Which motorcycle rallies & events have you attended, and which is your favorite? I have been to many events and rallies over the past five years. Last year I was Miss XDL and traveled around the country representing a stunt riding competition.
Do you have any tattoos? No, but Stormy Jackson in KC is an amazing tattoo artist!
Do you prefer riding in a group or by yourself? I enjoy both.

Thank you Chanel for the interview, and for doing such a great job on your photo shoot!
