In 2012 we introduced you to Hog Leverage, an aftermarket company that makes adjustable clutch and brake levers for Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Now the company is offering pink adjuster knobs for 2009 and later Harley-Davidson touring models—and WRN readers can receive 15 percent off!
Brake and clutch levers that are adjustable to the reach of a rider’s fingers are pretty standard on most sport touring motorcycles and sportbikes and on some metric cruisers. But on Harley-Davidson models, the levers from the factory are not adjustable, so women with small hands must struggle to reach the brake and clutch levers when pulling them in.

Just like the three bears beds for Goldilocks, our stock motorcycles are just not right sometimes. Often its a matter of adjusting the handlebars, the footpegs or the shocks. Fortunately, Harley-Davidson is aware that not all riders are built the same, so over the last few years, engineers in the PA department have been designing various parts to accommodate shorter and taller-than-average riders. We also included something every rider should have—a set of auxiliary riding lights from Motolight.
Weve got the most comprehensive motorcycling gift guide for women riders everywhere! The companies that advertise on Women Riders Now want to give you, the WRN reader, a special deal this holiday season. Please be sure to shop these companies first, and when you buy let them know you heard about them on WRN.
When a rider buys a motorcycle, it’s not uncommon for him or her to change out certain components so he or she is comfortable on the new bike. The two most commonly replaced parts are the seat and the handlebars, two of the three places on the bike where the rider comes in contact with it, the third being the foot boards or footpegs. It’s rare for a person to own a completely stock motorcycle.
While many of the larger touring motorcycles are now available with electronic cruise control as standard equipment or as an option, the majority of motorcycles do not have a cruise control feature. If youve ever ridden a long distance and have used a cruise control function, you know its an nice thing to have and something a rider can used to very quickly.
The Robson Company has improved the Thumbnail Extension, reviewed by WRN. So whats new? The Thumbnail Curve as its now called, is contoured making it even easier for those with shorter fingers to reach the turn signals. It covers the stock button better so when a rider with a short thumb reaches for the turn signal, the Thumbnail Curve extension is right within reach so the rider doesnt have to move his or her hand off the throttle or handgrip.
The HeliBars Roadster Handlebar Riser for the Can-Am Spyder improves comfort by relocating the stock handlebars and cover. CNC Machined from 6061 billet aluminum, the riser is designed to provide the rider with better handling ergonomics and greater low speed control.
Im a big fan of quality leather made goods for your motorcycle. When I was at the V-Twin Expo in Cincinnati in February, I met Jay Burgher of Mad Cow Custom Leather showing off his handmade designs. What you see here is only a sample of what Jay can make for you. He uses cowhide and ostrich skins to create one of kind motorcycle seats, saddlebags, tool bags – you name it.
