Our August 2012 cover model is Crystal from Kansas City, Missouri. She was a finalist at our Cover Model Search at Russo’s Pizza in Lee’s Summit, Missouri.

Crystal is a customer service rep, and when asked about her ambitions, she said “To be generous, caring, and honest to others at all times, no matter what situation I’m in.' When asked about her hobbies, she told us “Taking long country rides with Don, barbequing with friends, listening to music, and hanging out.”

When asked about turn-ons, Crystal said “Motorcycles and loud pipes.” On the flipside, Crystal told us that rude people are a major turn off. Crystal also admitted that she’s a sucker for “Speed. It’s such a rush going fast!” When asked what the smartest thing is she’s ever done, Crystal said “Moving to Kansas City.”

When asked about her personality, Crystal said “I’m funny, caring, and loyal to my loved ones. I’m also spontaneous, energetic, and goofy at times.' She’s also been told that her best attribute is her loyalty and smile.

Just for fun, we asked Crystal to share some of her favorite things with our readers:

Favorite color: Pink and Turquoise

Favorite food: Seafood.

Favorite drinks (non-alcoholic): Monster.

Favorite drink (alcoholic): Woodchuck (Amber rum and coke).

Favorite restaurant: Jazz and BB’s Lawnside BBQ. Yum!

Favorite actor: Robin Williams.

Favorite actress: Nicole Kidman.

Favorite TV show: Breaking Bad.

Favorite movies: What Dreams May Come, Moulin Rouge, and Easy Rider.

Favorite bands/artists: Korn, Slipknot, Staind, Hank 3rd, and David Allen Coe.

Favorite song: I can’t pick just one. I have too many favorites.

Do you have pets? Yes, I have two. An Airedale named Jagermeister, and a Schnauzer named Harley.

Do you ride? Yes.

Do you own your own bike? No, but my boyfriend has two.

How long have you been riding? Two years.

What’s the year, make, and model of your boyfriend's bikes? We have a 2007 Harley-Davidson Night Train and a 1991 Harley-Davidson Softail Springer, which we recently chopped down and built into a bobber. All thanks to Zippy & Kickstand at Hellraiser Fabrication!

What do you like most about your bikes? I love both bikes. I really enjoy the comfortable ride of the Night Train, and I enjoy the bad ass look of the bobber.

What is your dream bike? I’ve always liked the Harley-Davidson Crossbones. I would really like to chop it up and customize it to my size, but I can always settle for the new Harley-Davidson 72 that just came out!

What is your most memorable riding experience? The first time I got back on the bike after breaking my back. I thought I would never ride again, but thanks to Don sticking by me, I was able to ride again.

What is your least memorable riding experience? I was in a bike accident last August. I’m sure that explains why it’s my least memorable riding experience.

Which motorcycle rallies & events have you attended, and which is your favorite? I’ve been to the Grand River Rally twice, the Bergan’s Night Train Run twice, and the ABATE Rally once. I would have to say Bergan’s Night Train Run is my favorite. It’s always a great time, and I love seeing all of the bikes light up the night.

Tell us about your tattoos, and which is your favorite? I would have to say my chest piece is my favorite. I love my dermal in the middle of my cross.

Do you prefer riding in a group or by yourself? I prefer riding with a group of friends. It’s awesome going down the road with a group of bikes revin’ up their pipes.

Who are some of your closest riding buddies? Don, Uncle Juan, Shanna, Doug, Tom & Tokyo, James & Tracy, Kickstand & Zippy.

Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers? I would like to thank everyone for this opportunity. It was a lot of fun. Just remember; life is short, so live it up! Rev it up, and Go, Go! And happy birthday Don. I Love you!

Thanks for the interview Crystal.
