Jacinta and her Bonneville

Ride with Jacinta Siracusa on her Thruxton 900

It’s often within our darkest times that we choose to embark upon our most creative endeavours. Either from escapism or a need to strengthen your sense of self – challenging times can trigger a light bulb moment – as was the case for Jacinta Siracusa.

After breaking away from an abusive marriage and with a new baby, she gained the freedom to re-discover her lost love for riding motorbikes. Feeling her old self again, she jumped on a Triumph Thruxton 900 – and bought one soon after. It has become a symbol of her freedom. Jacinta’s warm spirit is infectious. Her teenage curiosity with motorcycle riding lead to a long-standing career in the industry that now includes bike journalism and a streetwear brand (Motodoll) that donates profits to victims of domestic abuse. A love for bikes, community and standing up for her beliefs – it’s no surprise she’s an inspiration to growing community of female riders around Melbourne, Australia.
