2. Be a mentor.
About 10 years ago, Harley-Davidson developed a women's outreach program in conjunction with its Garage Parties called “Share Your Spark” to encourage mentoring. When I make a new non-riding friend, she is almost always intrigued by the fact that I ride a motorcycle. I take the opportunity to school her about how awesome riding is, how I got started, and how she too can enter the world of motorcycling if it's something that excites her.

It’s up to me to help her follow through with getting started by guiding her to a Motorcycle Safety Foundation Basic RiderCourse (MSF BRC) or similar program, then advising on her first motorcycle purchase, and thoughtfully and patiently leading her on the first "real" road ride. It's an amazing feeling to be able to guide a new rider into our special, exciting world of motorcycling.
