NINA: With a Spring in Her Step


Helluu! Swedish... I need to mention her mother-country because I think it has a lot to do with her goofy nature and super positive attitude. This woman is a ray of sunlight who I feel very fortunate to have in my life.

Sweden is really forward thinking in its approach to women rights, hence Nina never felt she had any reason to believe she couldn’t do what her older brother could. With that she actually beat him at trying most things and motorcycling was one of them. She makes everything look like a heap of fun and thus inspired her family and friends to follow her lead. For Nina, riding ... life.. is all about who she can share it with adding to the story of life and the adventures she can catalogue.


Heleana is a force of nature. The founder of In Venus Veritas and The Petrolette, and a co-founder of Rising Sun Workshop. Heleana shares her love of vintage cars, riding motorcycles, and (not-so-secretly) dreams of flying planes and piloting a riva aquariva (a la Sophia Loren) very fast through the canals of Venice. Supportive and connected, community is her lifeblood, and she is as real as they come.
