Lace, Grace and Gears was born on a whim – why not break the world record for the most women riders in one location. Absolutely! Why not?!

I head up my own business doing fund development for nonprofits and love it; however, my passion is Ruby Too, my gorgeous Harley Softail Deluxe CVO, and the new road she has embarked me on: I am the founder of Sisterhood of the Asphalt Ribbon (SOAR) and the Lace, Grace and Gears Rally.

My bike adventures started in high school when I rode dirt bikes in old coal mine dumps in my native South Africa. I started riding again in 2011 when my hubs and I bought our first Harleys. I was 44. We hit the asphalt ribbon for two weeks every year and put more than 10,000 miles a year on our bikes. So far we have ridden through 18 states… and counting! Last year we traded in our bikes. My Ruby Too is now my forever bike.

I followed my heart and moved to the US sixteen years ago to marry my amazing American husband. We are parents to two amazing young adults: a 22-year old son and a 23-year-old daughter. Today I am privileged to be an American citizen and love my home state of Texas.

My thoughts on Lace, Grace and Gears?
Empowering. Exciting. Groundbreaking. Unique.

I am an old soul. Bit gypsy. Love to hit the asphalt anytime I can. In 2004 I went shopping for a watch battery and came home with a 2004 custom sporty. I took a riding class. Rode two to three times a month until a divorce. I didn’t ride for 15 years. Now on my big girl – a 2009 Electra glide. Love my Witchy Woman! Can’t wait to see all my sisters at LGG 2017!!! Live the dash sisters! Be PROUD of the women you are and stay strong!

MIRANDA LOBIT

Miranda is a caffeine-dependent minion who wants to live in a world where the nights are long and one is not discriminated against for showing her cleavage in exchange for wireless connectivity on her mobile devices. She’s been engaged longer than she’s ever been married but stands strong in her beliefs that Netflix and Oreos can fix anything!

Working towards an engineering degree, with a minor in fantasy football, Miranda is a seasoned IT Project Manager who works hard, plays harder…then takes a vacation. When she’s not working, riding her Harley, or traveling to far and distant places, she can be found on the water on her boat, skiing the mountains in Colorado, or spending time on her hobbies – breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Miranda is naturally and artificially flavored and believes that you should always pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together because life is what you make it…so stay classy!

I have enjoyed all the great stories, good & bad from the SOAR FB page. It’s a great feeling to know I now have sisters all over this world and I can’t wait to meet you all. Come on October 1!

Jesenia Martinez

JESENIA MARTINEZ

I am the mother of two beautiful girls, Jaylen and Jeneviebe. My love and passion for motorcycling started at my first rally back in 2005. I am inspired by the how the number of women riders has grown since then. As a sales associate at an HD dealership I met all types of woman riders from all over the world and enjoyed hearing their stories. I don’t have my own bike (yet) but I backpack and enjoy the freedom of the open road and the wind in my hair. I am excited to call the strong and beautiful women of LGG my family.

Let’s leather and lace up and get this party started!

AMBER ‘MAMACITA’ WAYBRIGHT

I hail from the tiny little town of Sour Lake in Texas. I live for the highway, vinyl records, turquoise jewelry, boxed wine, tattoos, live music, and cheap coffee with fancy creamer. A strong will, loud mouth, and gypsy soul, combined with the determination to NEVER be forced to wear panty hose, throttled me into the life of an entrepreneur. Between motorcycle road trips, I make a living through a mobile notary business, Rockin’ Mama’s Kitchen (my food truck/snowcone business), and a growing fireworks business. My three most noteworthy accomplishments call me Mama, and I’m lucky enough to have a big bearded biker cruising by my side (usually a few car lengths back, cause…ya know, my bike is faster!). Together, we’ve hit 31 states on the bike and are hoping to finish the inner 48 soon. My current passions include a 02 Soft tail Deuce, and a 03 Dyna Low Rider.
