6. Show off your sex.
Even if it's not your style, consider wearing gear with bright colors, feminine accents, or let your long, beautiful hair flow from under your helmet in the best way you can without it getting too knotted up. The more women "look" like women, the more likely people will notice that, "Yes! That is a woman riding her own motorcycle!"

WRN editor Genevieve Schmitt found a clever way to show off her feminine side with these leopard-print Icon gloves that she reviewed here.

If you choose to wear a black full-face helmet with a dark visor and a black leather jacket and pants, you'll blend in with the guys and get no recognition. Go ahead and be daring! 

Other ways to show that you’re a girl on a motorcycle:
- Put a bright colored or feminine colored bungee cord around extra gear on your motorcycle
- Add some sparkly bling to your bike
- Choose gear that emphasizes your female figure
- Add a sticker with a graphic of a woman rider to your helmet
