n the surface, the MotoLady’s third annual Women’s Motorcycle Show was indeed a bike show. Twenty-seven motorcycles built or ridden by women riders were spread about Lucky Wheels Garage, vying for Best of Show, Old Skool Cool, Going the Distance, and Modern Momma trophies. Many were obviously daily riders, from an Indian Scout with its handlebar wrapped in a black bandana and a fuel sling strapped to its back, to a Star Bolt with a soaring sissy bar and custom purple paint. There were bikes steeped in history, most notably an amalgam of a 1938 Indian engine spooned into a Royal Enfield frame built and ridden by Cecilia Adams not long after World War II. Some builds bordered on the sublime, from Amy Mulligan’s Suzuki GS450 with post-apocalyptic charm, to Kristine Peach’s 1953 Triumph 650, a dry lake bed racer with a trio of aluminum canisters streaking down its backbone. Then there was the odd couple of the show, Masumi Takamine’s 1959 Panhead wearing its patina and peeling paint next to the “Future of Fast,” Jen Dunstan’s sleek 2018 Alta Redshift electric supermoto.
