Meet Corinna @miss1932, founder of The Miss-Fires! She has been riding for 16 years and currently owns a 2006 Triumph Thruxton, and a 1971 Yamaha AT1 125 dirt bike. Her interest in riding motorcycles, and most other things in her life, is inspired by film. She founded and ran the internationally recognized Motorcycle Film Festival. Since leaving the MFF, she is working as the Curator of Film for The Vintagent. She also runs her own business @via.meccanica making seats for custom and vintage motorcycles as well as creating classic car interiors. Besides motorcycles, classic cars and film, Corinna’s passion is building and promoting community 🙌🏼 #womenwhoride#themissfires
Riding motorcycles is a lifelong learning experience. The Miss-Fires love all different styles of riding and types of bikes. Here is one of our own ladies sharpening her skills at @americansupercamp, a flat track racer camp 🏁🇺🇸🖤 #womenwhoride#themissfires#americansupercamp#flattrack
Meet Leah @bastarddaughter. She has a Harley Iron 883 Sportster, a recent upgrade from a Yamaha V-Star 250 and has been riding for 2 years. Both of her parents ride, and met at a bike run in Monticello, NY. At 7 years old, after her mom sold her motorcycle to someone in the neighborhood, Leah knew she’d fill her spot on the road. Besides riding motorcycles, she is also a competitive powerlifter in the USAPL raw 47kg weight class. 💪🏼📸: @womensmotoexhibit #womenwhoride#themissfires#harleywomen#womensmotoexhibit
Meet Kate @gentlewoman_of_fortune. She owns a zippy little Sportster and has ridden over 20,000 miles. She plans to rack up even more miles during her upcoming moto adventure in Italy this summer. Besides riding motorcycles, she is a competitive tennis player and enjoys writing, comedy and social media. Check out her ✨amazing✨ account @dailymini #womenwhoride#themissfires#dailymini
Meet Kristen @rabbit_catcher. Riding a motorcycle is something she has always wanted to do, but never gave herself permission to do so. A gift of a helmet and a motorcycle lesson from her wife empowered her to finally do it. It took a couple more years for her to get on the road, but now she is ripping around on her Suzuki Savage LS650. In addition to motorcycles, she loves riding her bicycle around town and writing. You can read a personal piece she wrote that was published in The New York Times here: https://nyti.ms/2ka8YN9 #themissfires#womenwhoride

Our girl Pants @missopenthrottle: Just got all my camping gear from @ironhorse_gear today! Believe or not, there is a 1+ tent, 2+ tent, two adult sleeping bags, two tent footprints, my regular day-to-day items (makeup bag, sweater, hat, etc), and a bed roll (hastily rolled/tied) loaded up on my bike. I'm already super impressed with the packability of Ironhorse Gear's camping gear...I cannot wait to test it out! Two more days til @thefoxrun! #themissfires#thefoxrun

In addition to riding motorcycles, she is also a mother, a photographer, a baker (cookies are her specialty 🍪), and a serious coffee addict.

Somehow made it here, 29 years later. It's only the morning, but I'm overwhelmed with the love and birthday wishes from friends and family. When another year passes, I think about how I've grown as a person and where I'd like to be. Without the truly amazing people in my life, however, I would not be where I am today. A mega huge thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes! 📸: @motion_addict X @davengo
