Now more than any other time in history, women are taking up motorcycle riding in record numbers. If you’ve found your way to this page because youre a woman thinking of getting into the sport, youre certainly not alone—one in four motorcycle riders on the road today is a woman!
The Honda Gold Wing is well known for the smooth ride and outstanding comfort it offers to riders, making this bike arguably one of the best for touring. But what happens when you add an extra wheel?
Trikes are more popular than ever, and to capitalize on this growing interest, South Dakota-based Lehman Trikes invited trike lovers to rev up their engines for its inaugural All-Trike Ride at the Sturgis Rally in August. The ride was part of the company’s Good Turn Trike presentation, awarding one deserving winner with a brand-new trike.
You don’t have to be a trike rider to enjoy Pamela Collins’s review of the Lehman Trikes Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Storm. After all, before climbing aboard, Pamela had 13 years’ experience on two wheels but zero on three.
When Jim Pinto, general manager and vice president of Champion Trikes, approached trike rider Molly Kight about reviewing the new Sportster trike conversion, she couldnt agree fast enough. Now, Molly shares her take on this edgy, bare-bones trike after a test ride through Trabuco Canyon in Orange County, California.
I don’t get mad when people call me a “hack” mom; I take it as a compliment. I am a single mom of two beautiful daughters, ages 12 and 17. My 17-year-old is legally blind, and riding on the back of a motorcycle was very disorienting for her. She just didn’t enjoy it, so I never pushed. Motorcycling has been and always will be a big part of my life, and I wanted to share the love I have for it with my children.
I finally got my opportunity to ride this infamous three-wheeler that has onlookers everywhere doing a doubletake. Women Riders Now reviewed BRPs Can-Am Spyder roadster in 2007 when the unusual three-wheeler first hit the market. WRN contributor Perri Capell test rode the Spyder then. Now two model years later with improved handling and more options, Im getting my chance to feel firsthand what all the fuss is about.
New from Lehman Trikes is the Crossbow, a three-wheeled version of the Victory Vision, the luxury tourer that made a statement with its sleek, unconventional design when it was introduced three years ago. While this new trike is visually appealing with a unique look all its own, it carries a lot of weight, more than 1,000 pounds. How does that translate on the road?
Not ready yet for three wheels but like the stability and extra storage capacity? Tow-Pac makes the SidePack designed to turn a two-wheeled motorcycle instantly into a three-wheeler sidecar, with the sidecar being used for storage. Many motorcyclists use a sidecar for the sake of stability and/or extra cargo carrying capacity.
