Women and Motorcycles

March 13, 2019
When you think about people who ride motorcycles what do you think about? Long hair, long beards, and leather? Do you think about macho men hanging out in dive bars playing pool and drinking beer? These are typically the images that are portrayed to us as your typical biker. However, people from all walks of life, race, and even sex encompass motorcycle riders. That is right guys; women can also be avid motorcycle riders. For those women that chose to be part of the motorcycle culture it is equally a love for the bike for them. Is there anything that differs for them though? The gear is slightly tighter, but is there a difference anywhere else? This article will look at women bikers and give you a better understanding of their love for the bikes.



Women are gaining momentum in the motorcycle world and currently there are over 265,000 registered women motorcycle owners. More and more it is becoming a more integrated hobby. Not only are enthusiasts branching out and accepting women into their male dominated culture, bike manufacturing companies are now seeing the need to furnish bikes more geared toward a woman rider. Harley Davidson is one of the leading bike manufactures making it easier for women to handle a bike themselves. They have redesigned their Sportsters with women's needs in mind. They have lowered the seat and worked with the center of balance. There are also things that a woman can add to make her bike more comfortable like having forward controls put on.

Now that you have thought about pursuing your passion for bikes and have found the perfect bike for you, it is time to think about your social network. While some love to ride by themselves and take in the scenery alone, many people prefer to travel in groups. Since the number of women bikers is relatively small now, you might consider joining a motorcycle club or organization. There are many notional and local clubs that women can join. They will keep you up to date on any new changes in the bike world along with allowing you to grow your social network. Go on, try a group.

Safety is also something that women need to take seriously on a bike. The Women's Motorsport Foundation was created to help educate and mentor women in the biker world. They hope to inspire women both in motorcycling and in motorsports. Both of these have lower female members and they want to make sure to empower everyone to pursue their dreams.
 

Number of female riders growing

March 13, 2019
It used to be pretty extremely uncommon to see a woman at the controls of a motorcycle. If a woman was on a bike, there was a guy in front and she was riding pillion. That started to change about 20 years ago and now women riders are the fastest growing segment in motorcycling. With their eyes ever set on trends in the industry, the motorcycle manufacturers are now targeting this group of potential customers with more bikes that fit their generally smaller stature. And as an added plus, this ...

Motorcycle Rider Experience

March 13, 2019
There's lots of information out there that gives advice on how to choose your first motorcycle and choosing motorcycle gear when you're just starting out. I have my own opinions about that as well, but I'm not here to talk about that. I'm here to talk about what experts don't, what it's like to be a novice rider.



First, I'll admit that I bought a bike before I took the MSF class. (I have friends that bought new bikes before the course and the decision didn't always work out well) I bought a 20...

Women Motorcycle Riders

March 13, 2019
In the early 1900's William S. Harley and Arthur Davidson did some experimenting with electric bicycles and created the first motorcycle. This invention changed the world and was the catalyst for getting riding where it is today. Since then many with an adventuresome, free spirit that love to ride and see the world from the back of a motorcycle of their choosing have joined the ranks of riders. From that day those joining the ranks have not just been men but also women. Today women riders put...

Why take a motorcycle riding course

March 8, 2019
Many more people are riding motorcycles today than ever before, especially women. Since I've been riding for 12 years now I have women ask me all the time about where they can start. They want to know if I took a Basic Motorcycle Course, and should they take one. They ask if I was afraid, and how did I know for sure that I wanted to ride. My advice to anyone, male or female, who is considering riding a motorcycle is simply this... take a basic course and you will know. I can't explain it, exc...

Motorcycle riding in the rain

March 8, 2019
Dull grey skies today, a steady heavy rain, poor visibility. An opportunity to impress the crowd with a textbook demonstration of wet weather riding skills.



Starting with hardware. Motorcycle in good condition, especially tyres, the grooves good and deep to channel away water, no letting them wear flat with constant upright motorway riding, no messing about trying to extend their life because they look okayish. A helmet that won't mist up. Clothes waterproof and breathable, they're four years ...
