Krista Grotte … Nation’s Fire

Krista Grotte … Nation’s Fire

Tell us about this movie? It doesn’t seem to be just a biker movie? Nation's Fire is an Action/Drama that is very, very different than the stereotypical biker movie. Biker movies are most notably celebrated or de-celebrated as exploitation films, and this is where Nation's Fire is different. We have the action, drama, deaths, killings, drugs, and good vs evil; however, there are many elements in this movie that give it a beating heart. We all can relate to the struggles the characters face in this movie; whether you’re a diehard biker or have no clue what a "cc" is, you will relate. The beating heart in Nation's Fire is family, loss, strength, redemption, manly underground situations all while secretly celebrating a woman's true place in the biker community and every other community for that matter ... as I state in the movie, "Our men know we are ride or die chicks.” Nation's differs from typical exploitation films and societal stereotypes in that we, as biker women, we aren't victims, we have a voice, we use it, we love to celebrate our womanly curves AND we ride. We handle our jobs, kids, and family business. We treat others with respect,...

LAS VEGAS: More than 30,000 bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts from nearly all 50 states and 12 other countries cruised into town for the 17th Annual Las Vegas BikeFest, October 5-8. The rally was four action-packed days filled with entertainment, contests, bike shows, MMA fights, Uncle Kracker performing live, and demo rides from Indian Motorcycles. With the addition of Rally West, located at 3rd and Fremont Street, attendees had, even more, options for shopping for the latest in motorcycle parts and accessories, apparel, and more.     "Our goal every year is to continue to keep the rally growing and the activities and entertainment fresh. With the new locations we chose for our poker runs, bringing the Tuff-N-Uff Amateur MMA fight, expanding our vendor area to Rally West, giving away $5,000 in shopping sprees and more bike shows, we feel we accomplished that," states Mindi Cherry, event manager.     Music filled the rally all four days with over 30 live bands playing- everything from hard rock, blues, punk, country and more. Friday night "America's Most Patriotic Rock Band," Madison Rising, headlined and Saturday the party continued right on the Fremont Street Experience with headliner "Uncle Kracker."     Las Vegas...

American Motorcyclist Association Announces Recreational Riding Department Manager

Heather Wilson to Work with Clubs and Promoters PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- Heather Wilson has been named Recreational Riding manager for the American Motorcyclist Association. Wilson, 24, will work with AMA-chartered clubs and promoters to organize riding activities for motorcyclists, including both on-highway and off-highway events. She joined the AMA staff in 2014 and previously served as associate editor and, most recently, as recreational riding and volunteer assistant manager. "I look forward to continuing to work with AMA-chartered clubs and promoters to expand the number of quality recreational riding events," Wilson said. "We're here to assist organizers with coordinating fun events for riders, whether it's a stop on one of our national series -- dual sport, adventure ride or Gypsy Tour -- or it's a local trail ride, poker run or other riding event." Previously, recreational riding was combined with management of the AMA State Chapters and volunteer program.   Wilson's changing role is part of a restructuring that will allow State Chapter Networks and Volunteer Manager Marie Wuelleh to expand her programs and create new opportunities for AMA members to get involved with the organization and their fellow riders. AMA State Chapter Networks provide a framework for maintaining and managing...

Las Vegas Motorcycle Hall of Fame Inductee – Genevieve Schmitt!

Can you even imagine the surprise and honor in receiving word that you are being inducted in the Las Vegas Motorcycle Hall of Fame? To top that off, how about adding to the fact that the other inductees are Arlen Ness, Dave Nichols, and Peter Fonda? Well, Genevieve Schmitt had that honor and was able to take some time out of her busy schedule to talk with me about that day – and her amazing history in the world of motorcycling! Susan: You’ve been a very strong advocate for women in the sport of motorcycling for many, many years. When did you get involved in motorcycling and why? Genevieve: I started riding in 1990. I was a producer, working for “Good Morning America” at the time. I was asked to do a story on women’s involvement in motorcycling. I did the photo shoot, saw all these women that rode in, and noticed that they all had a special energy and independence that I was seeking! I was 26 at the time, living in California, so I ended up taking the MSF class and became a rider after that! Susan: You left the tv aspect to do your own thing? How did that all...

Smokey Mountain Women’s Motorcycle Summit By Myra McElhaney   Transformational! Inspiring! Life changing! Amazing! These are some of the adjectives I heard as women were preparing to leave the Women’s Motorcycle Summit – Smokey Mountain Edition in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. The summit, held October 6 through October 8, was hosted by the Steel Horse Sisterhood Charities (SHSC), a recognized 501c3 charitable organization. SHSC’s mission is “to provide opportunities for women to develop and refine their skills while encouraging the art of women mentoring women and serving people in the motorcycle community.” After hosting several summits in the Rocky Mountains Joan Krenning, founder and director of Adventure and Lynn Martin, vice president of the SHSC Board of Directors wanted to bring the event to the Smokey mountains, too. About thirty women (and a few good men who love and support them) rode in from Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont and Wisconsin. From women in their early thirties to one in her mid-seventies and everything in between. Married, divorced, widowed and single. Women who had ridden for over forty years and women who had gotten their license just months ago. The...

RIDING MY OWN Myra McElhaney   When I first met my husband Phil, I was excited that he had a motorcycle. I loved riding with a neighborhood guy during high school and looked forward to being on back of a bike again. Phil had a Yamaha 650. He later upgraded to a Goldwing then eventually a Harley-Davidson Tour Glide. We loved riding in the mountains of North Georgia on weekends and occasionally we’d take a longer trip. We rode and camped with another couple on the Natchez Trace. A few years later, with the same couple, we rode from Atlanta to Niagara Falls and back. Along the way we stayed in Bed & Breakfast and quaint hotels, stopping to see sights along the way. Touring around the country was exciting but Sunday afternoon rides in the mountains, with just the two of us, were my favorite. In 2007 Phil was diagnosed with a glioblastoma brain tumor. After a year of radiation, chemo and surgery he was able to get back on the bike. We took a weekend motorcycle trip to Ashville, NC with two other couples. It was wonderful to be riding together again. Sadly, the cancer returned soon after...
