Don't rely on others, start your own group in your community. My hubby (and best riding partner) and I started a riders group at our church and this is how we met our two best couple riding buddies. (It's not just singles that need buddies, but couples too.) Use social media to connect and plan, and easily add more riders to the group. If you explore your other social (or work) groups, you might find a few other riders that you already have a connection with, then create. Be your own advocate and have fun!

Thank you for the well written article. I have been riding for about 50 years (probably one of the first female riders on the eastern shore). I started with a mini-bike at 8 years old and just kept going. I am so excited to see so many female riders these days from all walks of life. I usually ride solo because even though I am a member of a small female riding club here in Tidewater, Virginia, it just seems when events are planned I am working. I do, however, offer to mentor whenever possible and always offer advice and answer any questions that new riders have. Anything I can do to encourage female riders to get out there and experience the bliss of two-wheeled touring I will do. Good suggestion on stopping at dealerships. I do that myself on occasion.

Thank you again for the article. And ladies, never stop trying. Age is but a number and motorcycle riding keeps you young!

I have found the best riding partner to be my husband. I never have to ride alone! We have joined bike clubs and that works well. As a women it is harder to find other women who ride their own bikes. I also have noticed an attitude with a lot of newer women riders that leans heavy on the "I'm so cool because I am a woman that rides" edge and that is a turnoff to me. I look for safe, smart riders and couldn't care less how cool you look or feel. Ride safe and keep the rubber on the road.

This is a great article! I am 60 years old, and a very new rider. I am desperately trying to find someone willing to ride with me, and give me the confidence I need. I would like to find another new rider, like myself, but that is proving difficult for me. I am not giving up! Thank you for keeping us informed. Your articles are fantastic!
