RIDEWELL is a motorcycle lifestyle blog for riders who want a quality relationship with their motorcycle and the motorcycle community. It’s part motorcycle safety, part moto-philosophy, and 100% pro-motorcycling, written for both novice and experienced riders.
I (Loryn) started RIDEWELL after realizing that it was really hard to find useful, well-written information about motorcycle safety, and that nobody was really talking about motorcycles in the way I viewed them ⎯ as an incredible, fun way to experience life, that is also challenging, and requires dedication, maturity, and commitment.
Hey there, I’m Loryn! I’ve been riding since 2012, and I currently ride a 1980 Kawasaki KZ440-B1 called The Little Rat that’s been rebuilt by the amazing GT Moto. I live in Portland, OR with my boyfriend (who goes by J on this blog) and my cat (who goes by his name, Simon).
By day, I work as a marketing data analyst at Rainmaker Digital. My philosophy is if you have to work, you should do it somewhere with unlimited vacation days. JKJK, in all seriousness, I have a great job where I get to do awesome things with some incredible, entrepreneurial people.
In my spare time, you’re likely to find me riding (of course), wrenching, reading, or drinking tea. I also love writing, and I’m so grateful to the teachers, mentors and friends who have helped me hone my skills over the years.
