Hi, my name is Lou. I’m from Tokyo Japan, living in Los Angeles. 

I always want to try something new in life, yet I was not sure if motorcycles were for me, forces of nature thrive me to take the motorcycle safety course anyway. Suddenly... I got hooked being on two wheels. The adrenaline rush n’ wind roaring sound of riding a motorcycle just makes me feel happier with life! At first I started with a vintage Honda 200cc. Perfect first ride for me at the time because I was living in Downtown Los Angeles, where maneuvering through tight traffic is a must! But having to moved down to Orange County where roads are bigger and wider, I jumped onto a new Yamaha SR400 Retro/Classic style. It’s a very lenient bike and lil’ bit more power, but still... not enough power for me. I needed an edge, so I got a Harley. My world changed!!! Riding a Harley is absolutely special and very different from any other motorcycles, designing my own custom Harley is the most fun and memorable part of it all. I’ll always cherished those days in the garage working together with my builder Makoto(Jays motorcycles supply inc.).

Times move fast along with the wind,

So now I’m planning to build another Harley! :)

My motto is “be someone who makes you happy”, and motorcycle riding is very important part of my life. Yet to be apart from the norm.

My favorite place to ride is anywhere and so many places! My husband also have two Harley Davidson motorcycles which he loves, I love riding with him and his friends! We usually ride to Malibu through the ocean breeze and canyons. 

I met many many many people through motorcycles. I got to explore many places with motorcycles,  I had a lot of good time riding motorcycles. I can’t wait where my motorcycles takes me next!
