Love the picture of you & your ride! And I'm in absolute agreement: I'd want to be the one in the driver's seat.

And I doubt there's an outfit on the planet that couldn't be improved with a tough little leather jacket.

Jane said...

Great images. I love leather and motorbikes. I put on that jacket and I just feel so cool it's amazing. We used to have a bright yellow Ducati which we rode into work but when I had our first child my husband sold it I think he felt it was time to 'grow up'. Nothing feels better than the wind and the speed though.

Dobbygirl said...

Look at you!!! You are so cool! I was just thinking about your blog last night and how you always post the best things. I always learn something new!!! Love it!

Francine Gardner said...

Cool pics of you and your motorcycle.... I am reading Ewan Mc Gregor 's book Long way Round. i loved reqding about Charley and him crossing Mongolia, i will admit that it beats crossing on camels...tempted?????

Robert Petril Jr said...

Love it all!!! Great post!

Jacqueline said...

Oh Deb, you little rock chick, you !!!! I must tell you that my Aunt, who died when she was 82, rode motorbikes and wore leathers until she was 80, so you've still got a lot of biking to do !!!! It's funny, but I was thinking of dropping Steve McQueen into one of my posts...he was my favourite and was the Brad Pitt of my era....and I love Ewan McGregor....and, I want that Rick Owens outfit..FAB-U-LOUS.
My husband had a motorbike and we do watch the G.P.Moto races on tele, but I'm afraid that, in the '60's....
I WAS A MOD !!!!!!!!!!
Do you think that you can still be my BFF ?...I hope that you can find it in your heart to still be my blogging buddy and friend. hehehehe !!!!

Simply Mel said...

Unbelievably cool! You are one rockin' chic! I love it! My dad is a Harley rider, and he has always had motorcyles. I grew up riding on the back, but I have yet to be the driver.

And thank you for sneaking two shots of Mr. McGregor into the post!

Dustjacket Attic said...

Love the photo's of you and those cool bikes, the colour of the first one is really nice.

Love Ewan, he makes me laugh in his show long way round!

I've a friend who races 600cc's it's totally unreal to go to MotorGP's and watch.

Steve McQueen, what a cool guy.

Christy said...

Wow Deb look at you go girl! SEXY MAMA! I am way too chicken to A) ride a bike or B) dress like a rocker/biker. But I'd love to do both in my secret fantasy life!!!

the paris house said...

You are the coolest Deb!!! I have only been on the back never have driven...maybe someday!!
as I was scrolling down your post I kept thinking of Brad Pitt and then BAM there was Mr. Sweetness!! ( I love Brad ) I'm blushing, beaming, smiling and getting all giddy like a 12 year old girl over Mr. Pitt!!
Have a Rockin day

Lori said...

How on earth did I miss this over the week-end! Love all the leather and the bikes of course. I have a soft spot for Elvis so it was nice to see not one but 2 shots of him!

Amanda said...

I LOVE this post! Bravo!

bigBANG studio said...

oh this is SUCH a treat for a little evening perusing...I went on a four-day motorcycle trip with my dad this past spring all over the southwest and it was just THE BEST TIME we've ever had together. Now that his four daughters are grown and scattered all across the country he takes one gal on a Harley adventure every year and I don't think I can wait to wear my fringe jacket until my next turn...LOVED the shots of you on your Triumph! Thanks for stopping by bigBANG and come again soon! xoxo

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Couture Carrie said...

acornmoon said...

In these days of air bags and seat belts it seams inconceivable that as a child I often rode pillion on my dad's motorcycle without any kind of helmet or safety device. I suppose the roads were a lot quieter then!

By the way, I am so sorry to have deleted my last comment, I tried to alter it but was not able to.

lisa golightly said...

I am obsessed about finding the perfect vintage motorcycle jacket this fall ... you have fueled this mod girl's fire even more !! What a wonderful set of pictures !!!

alison said...

Every girl should own a motor bike....or at least a biker jacket!!
You'll have to bike on over to France - lots of beautiful scenery and lovely quiet roads!

Fifi Flowers said...

FUN post... I stole that first photo... too FUn not to paint! ENJOY your ride! Fifi

JennyMac said...

love love love the Phi ensemble...great pics..edgy and rocker cool.

Brilliant Asylum said...

Those leather blazers in the 1990's (a la Ben Afleck) ruined me on leather jackets forever. Of course, these look super cool.

Heavenly Housewife said...

Woo hoo! You go girl :D
Have a fab weekend daaaaaaaaaahling!

annechovie said...

You are one hip girl, Deb! Have a great weekend. xo

Macaron Treats ♥♥ said...

These are just awesome pictures! Thank you for sharing

Sanity Fair said...

HEART that Roberto Cavelli!!! I'm not even remotely bike-worthy, but it's fab.

The Cottage Cheese said...

You are one hot mama on that bike! Love this post. A few years ago I rented the Long Way 'Round DVD's - which I'm sure you've seen - the motorcycle trip around the world that Ewen Mcgregor and his pal Charlie took. I'm a little embarrassed to say it, but my husband (boyfriend at the time) and I watched the entire 10-hour documentary series in one day.

P.S. Before your blog, I had never heard of Bonwit Teller. Funny, but in the past 2 weeks I have heard it referenced 3 different times!

The Haute-Shopper said...

First off... woman, you rock! Love those pics of you on your motorbike! I have always loved the rocker chic look (since I was a teenager). I don't necessarily love all variations I've seen of it recently (it has become a bit too hyped and blinged up), but I definitely think it's a timeless look and more of a lifestyle. Thanks for sharing all these terrific images. I love how you even managed to integrate Dr. House into the lot ;-)

P.S. Didn't head to Scotland this time, but we're fying over again at the end of the month!

Rianna Bethany said...

Love this selection of images, especailly the brad pitt image! You look like an awesome biker!

Crystal @ Plush Palate said...

Wow! You pulled some great looks to show the trend. I love it! Makes me want to pull out my leather jacket today!

High-Heeled Foot in the door said...

You look great! At the Rubie Green event many ladies were rocking a leather jacket. Me and my sister both decided that we needed one immediately!

Duchess of Tea said...

Darling, I am so sorry to hear your sad news. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Having recently lost my mum, I know exactly what the feeling is like. It is so difficult to think that one day life will be without her, and yet it happens and there is nothing we can do. Love her, hold her and make her last days comfortable and loved, that's all you can do. My heart goes out to you, be strong . I wish I could be there for you in person, my prayers will be. Take care.

Love & Hugs
Duchess
