Coastal Gypsies was born when Josie and Laura met Dean.
Three gypsy souls that were already travelling the same road now doing it together, on two wheels, and dreaming of the day where we shed the confines of rooted living and take to the roads full time.
When given the choice we take the back road and stop to meet the people along the way. We want to remind the World what a beautiful place it is and that we are all just human.
Josie is East Coast born and raised, but her gypsy soul feels like every community she visits becomes home. Her first memory of riding was at the young age of 6 when her parents lit a fire in her by taking her two up across Canada. Even though she only has one season in of riding her own, she is ready to hit the wide open road and call it home.
After her ride, Harriett, people are her passion. She loves having the chance to meet as many people as possible and hearing their stories. Life tells the best stories and she wants to share them all.
Dean has been riding the longest and comes with a “dirty” past.. Dirt bikes that is.. About 7 years ago he took to the street bikes as well. He comes from the West Coast but has lived all over this great country. Life was a struggle to get this far but with a true Gypsy Punk Rocker attitude he grabbed life’s troubles and curb stomped them! Even though there will still be hills to climb it is only open road from here.
Laura, aka Little Lady, also has one season in as passenger. She has the fire in her and is counting down the days till she rides her own. With her adventurous Gypsy spirit along for the ride there is never a dull moment. While her passion for the open road calls her so does her love for the sea, someday we may lose her to the waves but she will always be a compass that leads us home.
