Kristin aka Kris : Saint John motobabe and co-founder of The Litas New Brunswick branch. She has been riding for four years: her first year was split between a 1980 Honda CM400T and a Suzuki Boulevard S40 & she now rides a Harley Davidson XL1200R. By day she's a Marketing Specialist at her local Harley-Davidson dealership, but generally you’ll find her off-roading with her partner in their '88 4Runner, dirtbiking, hanging out with seals: surfing in The Bay of Fundy, creating things, or off on her next solo bike trip. At the end of August, 2015, she embarked on a wild journey to The Dream Roll in Washington, but after her 8 hour ride from BC turned nearly 24 hours due to a few too many "bumps in the road," she had to call it quits (only 2 hours from the event grounds). The difficult lonewolf experience she had and her ability to forge on until it finally became unsafe to do so, pushed her to try to inject more life into the female motorcycle community and create opportunities for similar adventures closer to home. It wasn't until The Litas New Brunswick's December 2015 meet-up that she and Bambi both realized their common desire and began planning for the Summer 2016 event: The Backroad Ball. The event was so well-received that it's become an annual event.

Heather aka Bambi : Moncton motobabe and member of The Litas New Brunswick branch. She has been riding for six years: one year on a Kawasaki Vulcan & the rest on her Harley Sportster. During the day, she can be found working in communications for the Government of Canada, but in her downtime she splits hanging our with her hubby and young daughter and being dressed in leather, sporting a sparkly silver Gringo helmet & riding around on two wheels. In October, 2015, she adventured to Babes Ride Out 3 with a fellow Litas NB member. Upon arrival to California, she was graciously welcomed by local motobabes and overcome with joy at the instant comradery before even arriving at the event grounds. After her time in Joshua Tree, she knew there was nothing even remotely close to the atmosphere at the event and the abundance of female empowerment available in Eastern Canada and immediately began scheming up ways to create the same magic closer to home. It wasn't until The Litas New Brunswick's December 2015 meet-up that she and Kris both realized their common desire and began planning for the Summer 2016 event: The Backroad Ball. The event was so well-received that it's become an annual event.

OUR INSPIRATION

There are a few female motorcyclist events in particular in North America that have inspired us to start our own. Though each event is unique, with its own special feel, they all have a similar goal: uniting female riders! These events are popping up all over the world and we couldn't be more excited to see the growth in the female moto-world and the sisterhood between riders near and far. Much love to the babes that put so much hard work into these events!!
