Since 1999, the #1 Motorcycling Magazine for Women and the Men Who Ride with Them

Getting Over the Mental Hurdle

You've dreamt about what it would be like to ride a motorcycle for years now. You can even picture yourself on your own bike, but for some reason, you can't find the emotional firepower to jump start the learning process and make your dream a reality.

You're not alone. Thousands of women dream about riding a motorcycle, but many are held back because of a variety of reasons stemming from family approval to stereotypes.

Do any of these reasons sound familiar?
1. You're too busy to think about doing something for yourself so you find every excuse not to learn to ride.
2. You just had a baby, changed a career, bought a new home... motorcycling can wait.
3. You might be viewed as irrational and irresponsible among your family and friends if you buy a motorcycle.
4. Your husband or significant other likes you on the back of the bike. Why should you go and mess up things by getting your own motorcycle.
5. You're haunted by old stereotypes of women who ride motorcycles as loose and irresponsible.

Below are some stories of women just like you who once found every excuse not to ride, but are now enjoying all the life-changing moments that come with owning and riding their own motorcycle.
