Tank Top Thursday

Today is a special emergency edition of Tank Top Tuesday, held on Thursday in accordance of the Surrenders bylaws which read: “Pictures of women in tank tops may be posted on days other than Tuesday in cases of ridiculous hotness/extreme impatience/overwhelming swooning.” After seeing the Battlestar babes on their bikes, I’d say we’ve met that threshold and then some. Holy frak! As The Gentleman was so kind to point out last week, that Interview magazine photoshoot of Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer decked out in bikini biker gear was no fluke. Katee and Tricia are, indeed, smokin’ hot motorcycle mamas.

The friends were featured in the LA Times this week for their riding prowess. Whatever you do, DO NOT MISS the accompanying video. P.S. How much do I love that the Times has a woman writer for their motorcycle column? So much so that I’m seething with jealousy at her choice beat assignment. Of course, I’d have to learn to ride first. And considering the fact that I’m so clumsy I sometimes hurt myself just getting out of the car, I should probably resist the urge. Well, at least I can look at the pictures. And my, what pictures they are. Tank tops + motorcycles + Katee and Tricia = Thank God I wrote those bylaws. Look, Tricia agrees.

Check out AfterEllen later today for more on Tricia and Katee getting their motor running for the Times.

Yay thank you.
Women CAN ride.
Dorothy if you change your mind, I'll teach you how to ride. With good insurance only..

I'm so stoked that you put this up. I've been waiting for years, and yesterday bought a gleaming Suzuki SV650. A few more weeks for the class, and I'm off! Nice to see those two on bikes, not to mention speaking for women who ride.

now we're talkin'. Much better than last week's photo shoot shots. Now I believe they ride motorcycles! Glad to see they wear gear too.

Amazing video! One of them was wearing a "Free City" tank. Isn't that Leisha Hailey's GF or ex-GF design?

Besides being the most clever blog on the net, it's educational as well.

So when you gonna Netflix those back seasons of Battlestar and catch up, my dear? No more excuses!

Shasta said...

I agree that there are no more BSG excuses! Denying yourself the hotness and complete awesomeness of that show is darn masochistic!
Thank you so much for the video. Oh yum!

OT: Have you ever had or considered Rachel Maddow as a weekend crush contestant? The woman is family, friggin' brilliant (a Rhodes Scholar), beautiful in a natural way, articulate and asks tough questions of politicians when she is on TV.
