Pet of the Year Taylor Vixen and Runner-Up Veronica Ricci flew to Indiana for a pre–Sturgis Motorcycle Rally photo shoot with Easyriders photog rapher Michael “Balls” Farabaugh. The Pets were revved up to have the powerful machines between their legs, and about the rally. Taylor tells us, “I knew a lot of bikers when I lived in Dallas, and I’ve heard about the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally forever. I’m so excited about being a part of it.” As for Veronica, she was getting ready for all the manly biker dudes. “People think bikers are men you should watch out for,” she says, “but I know they’re the sweetest, most respectful, and sexiest. I’m ready to party in my motorcycle boots!”
Farabaugh, whose relationship with Penthouse dates back several years, was equally excited about the upcoming event. “Say you have 1,000 places and things to see and do before you die—put this at No. 1. At the Monkey Rock Party, people will experience a magical kingdom of the most prestigious custom and antique motorcycles on the planet, incredible hospitality, ice-cold beer, the best shopping and vendor row this side of motorcycle heaven, and the largest gathering of relaxed motorcycle fans, including the staff of Easyriders magazine. This will be served up with the most delicious women on the planet when Penthouse delivers Taylor and Veronica—talk about eye candy.”
Posters from the Pets’ shoot will be available exclusively at the Monkey Rock USA Bike Builders Expo, presented by Lucas Oil; the ladies will also be making a Sturgis appearance, as well as signing autographs at Cadillac Jack’s Gaming Resort, in Deadwood, South Dakota.
