She Rides Anything on Two Wheels

Imogen Lehtonen is a family member of the founders of the legendary jewelry company, Great Frog London.

The Great Frog has been hand making epic jewelry out of their basement in London since 1972. Legends like Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Metallica, Slash, Aerosmith and more wear their pieces.

When she’s not out riding motorcycles, Lehtonen works tirelessly in the back of the Great Frog’s workshop – a long-established family business for handmade and bespoke rock and roll jewelry. They have 2 stores in the US and Imogen is in charge of their store in Los Angles, CA.

I met her at a 5 Ball Leathers photo shoot. I produced the photo shoot Bikernet.com HQ and created the website layout.

Imogen is a jewelry talent, model and rider. Harley-Davidson picked her for a ride across the US and she was also selected for a co-starring role in the inaugural episode of RIDE with Norman Reedus.

When I spoke with Imogen at the Long Beach International Motorcycle Show she said she had fun in Italy because Ducati sent her out for a ride in the mountains. This what Rolling Stones had to say about her…

    Imogen Lehtonen tears past me on her way into Italy’s Apennine Mountains, ducking under a canopy of trees that shaded the gravel-strewn asphalt. Decked out in black with a ghostly helmet, Lehtonen looks, simply put, really fucking cool. She’s seated on a Ducati Scrambler Café Racer. If you trail behind her, negotiating tightly curved ess-turns at speeds that made would make any rider skittish, it becomes clear that you’re chasing a tried and true biker – noteworthy, at a time when motorcycle culture suffers infiltration by weekend warriors and selfie-seeking millennials in their quest for a two-wheel version of Coachella.

    Lehtonen undoubtedly stands tall among the authentic women, and men, who ride. Continue reading the Rolling Stones article entitled How a Reluctant Motorcycle Ambassador Saved Female Biker Culture
