Most Motorcycle Websites Talk About Oil Changes and Front End Rebuilds…

Not this one!

Welcome to Pillioness, the only motorcycle blog written from the back seat of a bike!

The only motorcycle blog written from the back seat

I’m Liz Hardy. Nice to meet you!

I write blog posts and web content for motorcycle websites and businesses.
I’m also on a secret mission to save the world from ugly motorcycle t-shirts.

I’ve been roaring through the world on the back of a motorcycle for 25 years now.

It all started when I met, and later married my seriously bearded soul mate.
Pat’s been riding more than 45 years (and has saved a fortune on razors – he last had a shave in March of 1971).

The other day we sat down at the kitchen table, and figured out we’ve done over a quarter of a million kilometres together – so far, anyway!

other motorcycle websites can talk about mechanics

I’ve ridden on 43C degree days, when the road is actually melting.
And I’ve hunkered down as icy winds straight from Antarctica bite through my 5 layers of thermal gear.

Even so, I’m more of a princess than a rough, tough biker chick.
Luckily for me, we now live in New Zealand, where you can ride all year round.
The roads are often empty, and the landscapes are jaw-droppingly beautiful.

Why Doesn’t This Motorcycle Blog Cover Mechanical Stuff?

It’s true that you can often find me out in the garage, talking bikes.
I do know the difference between a torque wrench, and a 10mm spanner.
But I’m not into spending all Saturday afternoon crawling around the garage floor, cursing another missing screw that’s disappeared into the third dimension.

So on this motorcycle blog, I don’t talk about mechanical stuff.

You also won’t see any half-naked biker chicks flashing terrifying cleavage that could suckle a rhino in the wild.
Besides, I don’t know any real women who ride topless in a leather thong, do you?

Instead, I focus on why motorcycles are so easy to love.

cats are heavily involved with this motorcycle blog

Our whole family is into them, even the cats…

So What Will You Find on This Motorcycle Blog?

  • Motorcycle obsession as a way of life.

Around here, bikes are part of the family.
That means we often have bikes in the living room.
They get lonely out in the garage, you know.

not many motorcycle websites are into indoor parking

  • Practical ways to make riding as a couple fun and safe.

Motorcycles should be a source of shared joy, not a fast-track to divorce.

  • A female perspective on the male-dominated world of bikes.

You wouldn’t believe what I can see from the passenger seat…

I hope you enjoy Pillioness.
