  1. I attended the 2009 conference. I had a blast. I was hoping the 2012 conference would be closer to my home this time. I am still going to do my best to attend and hope too see some of my riding buddies there too!

  2. I am stoked this event will be held so close to me this time. I attended last time in Keystone and and was happy to have made the trip. This one is closer and the timing is good. I will be returning from South Carolina from another convention and can ride straight to Carson for this one. Thanks so much for putting this together.

  3. So excited to hear of the location and the dates. I am really looking forward to this event. The last one rocked!

  4. I am bummed at the timing and location. It’s the same week-end as one of the biggest annual motorcycling events in the US (MotoGP/AMA Races), smack-dab in the middle of most of our summer vacations, and the location is well, really remote! Beautiful yes, but remote. I live in the state next door and it would take two days of riding/driving through some pretty desolate country to get there. Even flying into the closest airport (Reno) is a challenge for much of the country, with very limited rental options to make the trip to Carson City. I wish there could have been a time/place that did not automatically exclude so many of us.

  5. I am a member of Women in the Wind, Phoenix, AZ, chapter Desert Diamonds. Liked the info and might just check out 2012.

  6. It’s about time! I had given up on an announcement and made plans for the summer already. I still think it might fit into my schedule… it’s within riding distance with some great roads between here and there.

  7. I think this is an awesome event in reaching out to all woman riders around the country. I am willing to bet this will be a great turnout, and should probably add in there a little tour up to Virginia City in that event.

  8. I really enjoyed the conference in Keystone and I’m looking forward to attending this one. If you love motorcycling and want to be a better rider and meet some really great people make plans to attend. And the shopping in the vendor area was pretty good, too.

  9. I can’t wait to ride to Nevada. Keystone was so much fun and meeting so many great ladies and gents. Fun rides! Everyone should try to attend this event in 2012.

  10. Will you automatically generate an update that it’s open for registration?
