Carla Henkel: I've been riding since I was 5 years old, and in 2014 I used all my savings to buy a Triumph Thruxton 900. Out there, though, I started noticing that I was on my own; I realized I needed to find more girls like me to ride and share that feeling of freedom with. So I started searching for the right crew. Some of us knew each other from different overlapping groups of friends, and others I had never met before.Our first ride was to Laguna de Zampoala. That ride showed us what an amazing feeling it is to ride on an open road with a group of friends. I don't think any of us knew that feeling of what it meant to ride with, trust, and have the mutual support of someone fully living the same moment with you. So we started riding together more and more, until getting to the point where we are today. There are six of us now, and we don't know if that number will grow, but we have the LMMC Rider Club which lets other like-minded female riders ride with us.
