RayRay, from Kansas City, Missouri is our December 2007 cover model. She graduated from Central Missouri State University with an Associates Degree in Retail Marketing and also graduated from Rochurst University with a Bachelors Degree in Internal Technology. She is currently a program manager in the IT department of a local investment company and a fitness instructor five days a week. When asked about her ambitions, she said 'To raise a well rounded confident daughter. I think I’m half way there since she is already 17. I also have ambitions to own or operate my own gym.'

RayRay's hobbies include water skiing, hanging out with her daughter, chilling with her family on their farm, and working out. She also went on to tell us 'I love to dance; I love the outdoors, and I enjoy competing in all kinds of sports and watching sports. My husband got me into NASCAR about ten years ago and I’ve been hooked every since. I also compete every year in the Kansas City Corporate Challenge in weight lifting, coed flag football, women’s soccer, cycling, track, and coed softball.'

When asked what turns her on, RayRay said, 'Self confident, romantic, thoughtful men. A guy that doesn’t take himself too seriously and likes to have fun. I’m a sucker for a man that will help me clean and sometimes cook for me. My favorite is someone who enjoys spending time talking and taking walks. I LOVE kissing, and I'm also a sucker for sweets, flowers, and a nice hot sudsy bath with a good glass of red wine!' On the flipside, RayRay's turnoffs include insecurity, rudeness, cockiness, and insensitive people. 'There's nothing I hate more than people who whisper around you and talk behind your back. Judgmental people are the worst!'

She describers her personality as 'Very outgoing, compassionate, caring, and easy going. I don’t judge anyone. It takes all kinds of people to make up this world and we all can’t have the same beliefs or opinions. It would such a boring place to live if that were the case. We just need to accept the fact that we all are different and live with it. Wow, kind of got off on a tangent. Sorry. I’m a hard worker to the extent it is hard to find time for myself. I like to give everything I do 100 percent or more!'

We asked RayRay if she rides, and she said 'No, unfortunately not, but I have a lot of friends that do.' When asked who were some of her closest riding buddies she said 'Wow, I have so many friends that ride I couldn’t name them all, but every one of them loves their bikes. It amazes me how compassionate they are about riding. One of these days maybe I will have the chance to be as compassionate about my own bike, but for right now I will just have keep bumming rides from my friends.' During the photo shoot RayRay really seemed to love this Big Bear Chopper and I overheard her asking Bear what she could expect to pay for such a bike. Bear gave her one of his business cards, so I'm thinking we may have a new rider on the road this spring!

FUEL and Jerry’s Bait Shop are two of RayRay's favorite biker hangouts, and she told us 'Everyone has such a great time showing off their bikes and telling you about them.' When asked if she had any tattoos, RayRay told us ' No tattoos…sorry…just too permanent for me.'
