May is Women Riders Month ... great timing to address what women can personally do to encourage more ladies to get interested in riding motorcycles. Read my suggestions on what you can do to grow the community of women who ride motorcycles, then post your comment and photo below. Lastly, share this story with all your riding friends so they too can make a difference.
Get out and ride. The more time you spend in the saddle, the sharper your skills will become so you'll have the knowledge and confidence to inspire other women to get on their own motorcycle. This woman is riding a BMW F 800 R.
The more a woman rides, the more visible she is to everyone. Ladies: remember when seeing a woman on her own motorcycle excited you because you hadn't seen it before? Now it’s your chance to be that role model for the next generation of riders.
Remember to wave at every young girl (and boy) you pass who looks up at the sound of your motorcycle. These children could be future motorcycle riders. Those of you who have experienced this know what a glorious feeling it is when that child waves at you then excitedly tells Mom or Dad standing with them, “It’s a girl riding that motorcycle!”Click to next page.
