Womens Motorcycle Club -the “Miss-Fires”

The “Miss-Fires” as they are know, is a 31 member-strong, women’s motorcycle club located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Formed about 5 months ago, their club is both unique and uncommon. What makes this club so unique, is not only that it is a womens motorcycle club, which isn’t all too common when it comes to motorcycle clubs, but that their club also operates as a school of sorts. They meet a few times a week at a place called, Motorgrrl garage, and have what is known as “shop talk”-where they work on mostly vintage motorcycles, including Moto Guzzi’s, and vintage Honda bikes such as Honda CB models. The bikes they work on are their own and they learn and teach each other while working on each other’s bikes. They do motorcycle maintenance and even engine rebuilds.

Most importantly however, they love to ride, which is reserved for the weekends and some members have raced in professional events such as the American Motorcyclist Association’s Vintage Dirt Track National Championship.

Keep up the good work ladies, you rock!
