It is this determination that keeps her craving success as she continues to leave a legacy for an entire generation of female riders to follow.

“I’ve lived my whole life around motorcycles,” Golden said. “Telling the story of how they’ve shaped my life, with a brand that shares in my passion for two wheels and good times, is unreal.”  
“We are excited to see this film across the finish line. Vicki has spent her entire career as a trailblazer, considered by many to be the most successful woman on two wheels,” said Dustin Hinz, Firestone Walker Brewing Company Chief Marketing Officer. “The work she’s done for the sport of motocross, women, and future champions is a testament to her legacy.
