This group is for women who are just starting out as sport bike enthusiasts... Its a way for those of us just getting into the hobby to relate, share information and stories and encourage each other! Women are the fastest-growing population of people interested in motorcycles right now, and we need to support and empower one another!! This way we can meet up and do beginner rides together and grow as riders... Hopefully we will become the mentors for other women interested in becoming riders!
Women Motorcyclists happier than those who don’t ride
Harley-Davidson commissioned a study that says women who ride their own motorcycle are happier than those who don’t. Conducted by Kelton, a global insight firm, from May 20-28, 2013, the study interviewed 1013 adult female riders and 1016 adult female non-riders. “The findings make it clear that riding a motorcycle greatly improves a woman’s feelings of overall self-worth,” Harley- Davidson announced.
More than half of the respondents cited their motorcycle as a source of happiness, and 74% said their lives have improved since they started riding. In addition to positively impacting a woman’s sense of self, the results indicate that riding a motorcycle may improve their relationships.
“Women riders report better communication with their significant other (60% versus 38%) and better physical intimacy (51% versus 35%). Stress causes tension between partners, but since more than a third (34%) of women riders report that they feel less stressed after starting to ride, it is not surprising that 50% of them are extremely satisfied with the state of their relationships”, the company stated.
Maybe that is why giving the gift of a motorcycle safety class brings out such smiles!
Hi Ladies! I hope this group becomes a regular in your weekly repertoire of checking emails, checking face book, etc. I am hoping each member finds this group to be a source of encouragement, and a way for her to learn something new about being a novice rider... I suggest taking a course (before or after your purchase of a bike) along with your membership in this group, since we will all be beginners. Fay Meyers Motorcycle World in Centennial, Co. is a great resource, and so is t3rg... They are a motorcycle school. Go to www.t3rg.com for more information. Lets get together after our first or second class to practice!
