What do you get when you put a ’94 Suzuki GS500, a 2012 Custom Iron 883, a 1972 CL350 Scrambler, a 1968 BSA 650, a 1987 Suzuki Intruder VS700GL, a motorcycle shop owner, a vintage brake-less 250 flat track racer and a 1959 Ford TBird together. Well, on Oct 22, 2013, one fateful fall evening, a year ago that’s exactly what happened — a small group of avid motorcycle and car enthusiasts went on a ride and had dinner. This was no ordinary gathering of a bunch of bad ass beauties: This was the beginning of The Miss Fires. A Brooklyn, NY based Motorcycle Club/Car Club (MC/CC) was born.

I cannot be prouder of these adventurous, breaking boundaries, pioneering woman who come from across the globe, the country and NYC to ride and wrench together. These bad ass beauties are truly inspirational. I am proud to be a Miss Fire!
