Motorgrrl is an amazing female-owned east-coast business, redefining the way the motorcycle community in Brooklyn comes together, wrenches and rides. If you think city people don’t ride dirt bikes, you are dead wrong! We have so many ladies join us from NYC, Philly, Boston, Pittsburgh and beyond to rip two wheels in this gnarly eastern PA territory. We’re proud to have these ladies out to teach, ride, riiiip and wrench with Motul high-performance motor oils!

While RyanCo Racing will be onsite with this support, please check over your bikes before attending, and bring cash or credit card to cover any parts you may end up needing. Check out this basic pre-ride maintenance checklist:

  1. Inspect and tighten bolts.

  2. Check and clean your air filter.

  3. Check your tire pressure. (12-14psi in dry conditions recommended)

  4. Check brakes - pads and fluid.

  5. Check your chain tension - it shouldn’t be taut, but have very little slack.

Last but not least, change your oil. Check out the Motorgrrl X Motul oil-change workshops being held onsite at OAO!! Get all the details and Sign UP!
