WOMEN ARE A RISING BIKER FORCE

If you ride motorcycles, or even if you don’t, women riders are more and more observable on American roads and highways, not just as passengers, but piloting their own cruisers, sport-bikes, scooters and other motorbikes.

Over the past few years, motorcycle magazines have been featuring more and more advertisements for motorcycles and motorcycle gear targeted to women riders – so manufactures are realizing that the fastest growing segment of motorcycle purchasers are also the traditional force that drives retail consumer spending: hence, they are no longer just buying motorcycle gear for their hubby, they are buying gifts for their girlfriend riders and for themselves.

WOMEN: FASTEST GROWING SEGMENT OF MOTORCYCLE RIDERS

An old article in the New York Times states “American women are the fastest-growing part of the motorcycle business, buying more than 100,000 of them a year.” (“Harley Woos Women Bikers”, July 25, 2007).

A little more recently, here are some remarks from the Motorcycle Industry Council’s preliminary results from their 2008 owner survey: “12.6% of motorcyclists and scooterists are now women, a 29% increase from 2003.”

    This trend continues to grow even today. Women riders are everywhere you look. Many thanks ror sites like this that recognize and cater to the female rider. We finally don’t have to buy little boys gear. You guys have some great stuff here.
