Video Reader Review: Harley-Davidson Dyna Switchback

The easier-to-handle touring motorcycle

The Harley-Davidson Dyna Switchback has a big following among women riders who want the power, comfort, and storage of a big touring motorcycle, but don't want the bulk and "big-ness" of the bigger bike. Watch this short video review by a WRN reader.

A New Rider's First Overnight Solo Motorcycle Trip

Riding a Ducati Monster 696 to the Tail of the Dragon and Overland Expo East

9/4/2015, By Melissa Wilkinson, Lakeland, Florida
This year was a year of firsts; my first over-5,000 mile ride on Bruno, a 2014 Ducati Monster 696, and my first presentation at the 2014 Overland Expo East in Asheville, North Carolina. I’ve only been riding for two years and to have these two things accomplished on my second year of riding seems almost cosmic.

Video Review: Adjustable Brake and Clutch Levers for Small and Big Hands

Dial in the right reach on your motorcycle

Adjustable brake and clutch levers are standard fare on most sport touring motorcycles, sportbikes, and some metric cruisers. But on Harley-Davidson models as well as the new Indian motorcycles, the levers from the factory are not adjustable, so riders with smaller hands struggle to reach the levers.

VIDEO: WRN Reader Riding Tip – Pantyhose Gloves

Clever idea to protect hands from sun and wind

3/16/2015, By Genevieve Schmitt, Editor
We at Women Riders Now are big advocates of ATGATT (all the gear all the time), especially gloves as we treasure our precious hands. But we know some riders don't like to wear gloves. We met a rider who came up with a clever idea to protect her hands from sun and wind. Check out this short video.

Solo Seat Luggage Racks and Detachable Racks for Motorcycles

High quality made in the U.S.

We were excited when we met Kelly Motherwell of Motherwell Products because his company manufacturers luggage racks for motorcycles with solo seats. These luggage racks mount on the rear fender behind the solo rider seat. And many readers of Women Riders Now ride without a passenger and have a solo seat attached to their bike.

Quality basic black jacket with budget features

Your Review: 2012 Ducati Monster 796

Like flying on the road

5/18/2014, By Amanda King, Northhampton, Massachusetts
I purchased a Ducati Monster 796 this month and have fallen in love! It’s sexy and nimble, and is a blast to ride. At 5-feet-3, it is a tad tall—I cannot be "flat-footed when sitting on it—but can touch the ground, and haven't had any issues. I installed a 696 rear upper shock mount and this lowered the height a bit too.

Reader Review: TCX Infinity GTX Boot

Men's boot reviewed by a woman

4/17/2014, By Lynne Goebeler, Dawsonville, Georgia
I've been wearing motorcycle boots made specifically for women for a number of years and found they fit great, but lacked in the protective elements that are easily found in men's boots, in my opinion. I decided to make my next boot purchase based on functionality, not gender.

Reader Story and Review: From Bike to Trike

Taking the time to find what worked for her

12/17/2013, By Sherri Brody, Litchfield Park, Arizona
To say that my history with motorcycles was minimal would be an understatement. I had never ridden “anything,” and 26 years ago had ridden on a bike as a passenger for about an hour. My husband, Mike, rides bikes and has raced dirt bikes his entire life. When he retired, and a girl friend of mine got her motorcycling license, I decided to take the leap and work towards getting mine.

Reader Jacket Review: Fox Creek Leather Motorcycle Jacket

A step above the traditional leather jacket

5/21/2013, By Theresa Clark; Eagle Creek, Oregon
I was introduced to Fox Creek Leather when my husband was in need of a new motorcycle jacket. We were looking for something well-constructed, durable, and made in the United States. The garments from Fox Creek Leather seemed to fit the bill, so we placed an order for a men's leather riding jacket.
