Modern Moto Magazine ISSUE No. 4 - September 2017 - Page 5

Letter From The Editor Model: Ka e McKay, 5'-0" 108# Gear: Cortech Bella Cafe Jacket, Shoei RF-1200 Helmet, Mo oWear Jeans, BiLT Boots Photographer: Jason McKay D uring the produc on of the last issue, I took a vaca on to northern California with some work sprinkled on top. I enjoy working from the road - that is the goal one day to travel the country introducing riders to the magazine and mee ng with gear manufacturers to learn about all their latest goodies. All we need is an RV for a home offi ce and our bikes for ge ng around town and exploring. The me is not right yet, but we are ge ng closer. California was amazing. Living in Florida, any me I can ride where there are actual eleva on changes is a treat, but riding along the Pacifi c coast was breathtaking. We took advantage of Leod Escapes, which specializes in motorcycle touring and plans everything – the best roads, nice hotels, great places to eat, even se ng up the rental bike with pre-loaded GPS routes. I’m typically a control freak, but it was nice to have everything fi gured out for me, and thanks to the long summer days, I s ll had me to make detours to meet with clients. My husband and I had fi ve days on two wheels; we road from San Francisco north up to California State Route 36 “The Serpent to the Sea” then back down the coast and through the redwoods on the Avenue of the Giants then back to the city. I’m s ll playing catch-up a er taking a total of 10 days away from home on that trip but it was well worth it. In my last le er, I men oned the need for help with marke ng; well, I believe I found the right person for the job. I’m excited to have Marcie Taylor Media join the team. I met Marcie when she was working for the company that did the marke ng for AIMExpo. At that me, she recruited me as a social media ambassador to help promote AIME through The GirlRiders Network. Back then, I no ced right away that Marcie knew how to hustle and get things done. I can’t wait see what she does for Modern Moto! I hope you enjoy ISSUE No. 4. Post your feedback on any of our social channels. We have some exci ng stuff brewing for ISSUE No. 5. Enjoy and ride safe! - Ka e 5
