Professional Motorcycle Stunt Rider Jessica Maine is a self professed motorhead. Early on, she was interested in engines and horsepower. Driving around in her Nissan Maxima, she would pretend it was a rally car until she destroyed its transmission. She went on to blow the motor of a 98 Cobra Mustang. Then, after seeing a bike pass her car on the freeway up on one wheel, Jessica knew that a motorcycle was going to be her next driving adventure. She became one of only a handful of professional female stunt riders, but stopped competing in order to do exhibition and event work, even becoming the spokesperson for Von Dutch Kustom Cycles.

Maine has found much success and she is thrilled to be sponsored by K&N. "I remember the first aftermarket part that I bought for my Maxima was a K&N filter and I rigged it myself to make it like a Cold Air induction system. I thought I was the coolest chick driving in my 4 door sedan! Now to actually be supported by K&N blows my mind."

Jessica owns several bikes, all of which are outfitted with K&N filters. Her 2004 Yamaha YZF R6 is her prized possession. "I learned how to wheelie and did my first track days on her," says Maine. "I only use K&N filters on my bikes, and even my trucks and I can really tell the difference. I swap out my stock air filters and immediately feel the increase in horsepower."

When asked about what the future holds, Maine says she has some exciting projects in the works, including making a documentary about the stunt riding lifestyle from a woman's point of view, and some TV appearances. "It's definitely cool being on television, but nothing beats having little kids ask me for an autograph. I was the first female to scrap the bar, park a bike on the 12 bar, and the first to use a hand brake, but there's always something else to accomplish. K&N makes great products and my association with them adds validity to my name and to my sport. K&N keeps me up on one wheel!"
