LIPSTICK RIDER Happy Holidays everyone! Hope everyone has a great holiday season and remember to give with your hearts. Remember to give to yourselves as well! We all know it’s been a hell of a year and we all deserve it! Merry Christmas to all of my Lipstick Riders! Our next Lipstick Rider, Candice Welch, a shy and quiet lil chick from Chauvin, La has really started to come out of her shell a lot since she discovered her addiction for riding. Starting about three years ago, when she started dating a killer painter named Tim Scott, she didn’t even know how to pull the clutch in on a motorcycle… Now she’s doing burn outs, pulling the bike apart to paint and even winning shows with the beautiful lil bike she created! She’s definitely not shy when it comes to talking about bikes either, a chick after my own heart that one day will end up with a Harley (ha-ha Candice ) But that girl loves her 2016 GSXR 1000, and she can ride! Candice started out on a 2008 GSXR 600, learning to handle the bike and the road and when she mastered it she moved up to her GSXR 1000 and loved it! She loved her bike so much, she wanted it to truly reflect her so that girl pulled it apart did all her little bodywork and sanding then Tim laid some beautiful paint and together they created her beautiful bike! It’s so beautiful; she just won Best Motorcycle at The Thibodauxville Car Show! Candice really loves to show off her bike. It gives her a reason to ride it as well! She squeezes as much riding time in as she can and even rides to work on pretty days over at Bourgeois & Associates. Riding that motorcycle has definitely brought her out of her shyness and has given her confidence to take on bigger and better projects, always working hard to make sure that things are just right. That shows the heart of a true Lipstick Rider! And I got to give it to a chick that three years ago didn’t even know how to ride, to now tearing up the streets and building bikes… That’s Candice’s story, tell me yours. If you would like to be featured as one of our beautiful lipstick riders just send me your story a bunch of killer photo’s to and each month we feature another beautiful Lipstick Rider. Wishing Candice and all my Lipstick Riders a very Merry Christmas! “candice welch” Till next year! Dina 20 Thunder Roads Magazine Louisiana/Mississippi | December 2017 |
