Style Rider, Jess Appleby

Style Rider aims to document the world’s most stylish motorcycle riders, be they riders of classic, custom or cafe racer steeds. Focused on the intersection of motorcycle culture with individual style, here we caught up with Jesse aka @theducatigirl riding a Ducati Scrambler Icon at the 2020 Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. Style Rider documents stylish motorcycle riders ahead of a new book in late 2020.
