Great article! I didn't know it took so long before women could ride motorcycle in US.

Well, they could rid a motorcycle, they just weren't formally issued a license to do so until then.

I love articles like this! My grandmother learned to drive a car so that she could drive back to Idaho when my grandfather bought a salvage military bike in the 40s. Then she learned to ride the bike and got a ticket for riding it! I knew Grandad rode but I never knew she did until I read her journals!

I absolutely loved reading this. Thank you Jim for sharing this vintage article. Sometimes we forget how difficult it was for the women pioneers in the sport. Love her grit and grace!

It would be interesting to find out when each state started a requirement to be licensed. I remember Dad being pretty ticked off when the state of Oregon told him he had to have a license. He was a professional rider, races and hill climbs. We traveled a lot as a kid.

That was in the 1960s, but I do not know if it was a new requirement at the time or if Dad got caught without a license on the old Chief, or maybe it was the Scout. Regardless, he never got the endorsement because it made him so angry! Still rode. Must be where I get my rebel call from.
