Our friend Kaloopy has a new obsession: Babes on bikes. Not leather-clad biker babes, we’re talking girls in flimsy tees and Daisy Dukes pedaling around L.A. on vintage Schwinns and the like. He calls it “The Bicycle Diaries” and it’s just like Che Guevara’s Motorcycle Diaries except there’s no motors or Che Guevara in it. What with Burning Man happening last week, the Kaloopster got ahold of an art bike (art bikes are big at Burning Man) — a low-rider customized to look like a yeti — and an Irish model named Shahira Barry.
Shahira is based in Galway, Ireland, which is left coast of the Auld Sod, yo. On her trip to the USA, she spent a lot of time hanging at the Playboy Mansion and filmed a Chris Brown video. So that’s good — we need more Irish models setting the world afire with their bouncy brogues. A brogue is an accent, not a breast, although Shahira has a couple of those too. In general she is a pot of gold at the end of our rainbow and if she doesn’t place highly on the Sunday World’s‘s Hot 100 Poll (vote here, laddie) we’ll be more than a wee bit surprised. You can follow her on Twitter @ShahiraBarry and get to know more about her at ShahiraBarry.com.
