Candidate Bios


Karan lives in Western New York and started riding motorcycles in 2011 at age 45. Once she got her first Harley – a 2001 Dyna Lowrider – she began to truly love riding. She began to travel on her motorcycle, and two wheels became her favorite means of travel. A few years later, she bought her first vintage bike – a 1974 Harley-Davidson FLH – and began traveling on it instead of her modern bike. She has put over 12,000 miles on that bike – all long-distance miles. In 2021, she decided her next trip would be to ride the entirety of Route 66 – 2,450 miles. Instead of going solo as she had always done, she founded the Riveter Chapter, and with a small group of members, planned and executed the Chix on 66 ride in 2022.


Current Member of Chix at the Crossroads Planning Committee

I’ve been restoring antique cars and motorcycles for years. My last project, a 1929 Indian Scout 101, is what I rode in both the 2021 and 2023 Motorcycle Cannonball. I’m currently starting a new project, an Indian four, for the 2025 Cannonball. I’ve just finished traveling to the South planning the route for the Vintage Chix Riders, Chix at the Crossroads 2024. When I'm not on the road or in my workshop, you'll often find me scouring swap meets. I live in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.



Joann has been an avid rider since 2008.  She works at a local Harley-Davidson dealership near Niagara Falls, NY as Administrative Assistant.  Her current bikes are modern to a degree (2008 and 2020), however, she has developed an appreciation for the older bikes and the individuals who strive to maintain the culture.  She has been membership director since the Riveter Chapter inception and also contributed in the planning of the Chix on 66 event.


Started riding October of 2019 and rode 100,000 miles by July 2023 while working full time. My parents, an aunt and uncle all had shovelheads or panheads when I was growing up. This last March I bought my first antique motorcycle a 79 Shovelhead. Have been working on my own motorcycles since 2020 and am grateful to all the persons who help/mentor me through that. Got the Shovel on the road this past October. Currently  the Secretary for the Riveter Chapter and I love what we are doing to encourage women out there. In addition to promoting owning and riding antique motorcycles and keeping history moving and on the road.

Thank you for your participation!
