Yuri is a native of Japan with a deep and abiding love for air-cooled American motorcycles. She has never driven a car or ridden a scooter, but has ridden a hard-tail 1979 Shovelhead custom from one side of the USA to the other. Yuri’s first bike was a 1993 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy, which is not the easiest motorcycle in the world to learn on, and she recently moved to the United States and ordered a new custom from Hog Killers.

Once the bike was done, theMotolady’s Alicia Elfving shot the pictures and video, and graced a few pictures herself. More images after the jump. Continue reading →
“A lot of time, effort and planning went into our shoot of Kara and her new SR250 build. Pat and I drove around Chicago scouting locations we felt would highlight not only the bike but also the city. Chicago and Kara’s lifestyle therein were a big influence on the build that we were aiming to highlight through his lens.
