Hey everyone! I’ve got a special treat for you today ⎯ an audio (yes, audio!) interview with an inspiring motorcyclist and entrepreneur, Laura Smith.
A longtime rider, Laura found herself frustrated by the lack of options in women’s motorcycle gear (aren’t we all!). Unlike the rest of us, though, she did something about it. Along with her husband, Scott Saunders, Laura founded Worse for Wear, a women’s motorcycle apparel company that focuses on fit, form and function.
I’ve been following Worse for Wear for awhile, and I love their approach to gear. It’s simply made ⎯ without a lot of flash or extra bits ⎯ and it will fit perfectly into just about anyone’s daily wardrobe. Not to mention it’s designed to CE-standards of protection, and made-to-order in the USA.
Worse for Wear just launched their first product, the Crosstown Jeans, and they’re about to launch their next fit, so I was thrilled that Laura agreed to take a break from her busy schedule for the interview.
Hope you guys enjoy!
