Michelle from Avondale, Missouri is our February 2008 cover model. She has worked at the Harley-Davidson Vehicle and Powertrain Operations in Kansas City, Missouri for over seven years and currently works in the paint department. Michelle also enjoys modeling and is a Worth Girl at Worth Harley-Davidson North. One of her many ambitions is to be on the cover of Easyriders Magazine.

Michelle has been riding for about six years and owns her own 100th Anniversary Harley-Davidson Fat Boy. She also enjoys riding two-up. Her other hobbies include cooking, shopping, and watching funny movies. Turn-ons include fast cars, old hot rods, loud bikes, and hanging out at the drag strip. She admits she’s a sucker for her kids and Sugar (her boyfriend). Michelle also enjoys attending bike shows, rallies and other motorcycle events, and her favorite bike night location is Frankie D’s in Kansas City, Kansas. When asked about turnoffs, Michelle said mean people is her main pet peeve. She describes her personality as fun and bubbly and she likes to laugh, have fun, and hang out with happy people.

When asked about her most memorable riding experience, she told us “My friend Kickstand who owns Hellraisers Choppers’ bike broke down one night and I had to ride my kid’s dad’s bike for the first time so they could push his bike to the gas station. That was the first time I’d ever ridden a motorcycle and I did it!”

We asked Michelle to tell us about her tattoos and she told us “I have nine tattoos, and the one on my lower back is my favorite. I’m Native American and it’s the symbol of my tribe. I also have five piercings.” When asked about her favorite tattoo artist she told us “Al at East Coast Al’s Tattoo. He’s an awesome artist and a wonderful guy.”
If you’d like to meet Michelle in person, make sure to stop by our booth on February 15-17 at the World of Wheels All-American Invitational Motorcycle Show at Bartle Hall in downtown Kansas City, Missouri.
