9 thoughts on WOMEN RIDERS MONTH: Harley-Davidson Seeking Rider Stories

  1. For all you women out there who ride or would like to start, the High Desert HD in Meridian offers a lot of safety, maintenance classes and drivers training for women only. The staff is very aware that women ride and purchase motorcycles. So get out and visit your local HD store.

  2. This year in my area there has been a huge increase in women riders more so than ever this year! I knew four of the gals and met six others and there are more waiting to take their class! It’s exciting to see so many new female motorcycle enthusiasts take charge of their own ride. I have been riding now going into my eighth season. Many of these new riders have asked me to ride with them and mentor them. How exciting and flattering.

  3. Buying my Softail was the best thing I ever did! I love seeing women out there on the roads!

  4. What a courageous woman to get back on the horse, as we say in Texas. You are never too old to learn how to ride. I am 60 years old and I ride a Yamaha 950 tourer.

  5. It’s about time that HD becomes interested in what the women are doing.

  6. To all the women out there who have bikes…get out there and ride. Put some miles and enjoy the experience. To all the women who don’t yet have rides (notice I said “don’t yet”), find a way. It’s the best thing you’ll ever do for yourself.

  7. About two years ago, I saw a motorcycle class in a parking lot in San Antonio. I’ve never ridden on a bike (even the back) or even been around them. They made it look so easy; I was fascinated. I took the class. A year later I had my first wreck on my 2012 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy Lo. It was more than $9K of damage to my bike. The manager of Javelina HD in Boerne made me a good deal on another bike identical to mine; mostly because he was so glad to see that I wanted to keep riding after my major wreck. That was end of last June. I now have almost 18,000 miles on the new bike. I was made for this. It all started by seeing a class in a parking lot…

  8. I went shopping at Ocala Harley-Davidson with my 1-year grandson just to look! The reason I was ready to ride after 20+ years is I had just put my step=father who raised me, in a nursing home due to Alzheimers. We had planned to get motorcycles and ride together. Well needless to say, I bought a 2007 Harley Sportster 883L! My grandson was so excited too. I have now been riding for seven years now and since then my finance bought and rebuilt a 1991 Heritage Softail for me, which has part of my dad’s ashes in the handlebars so he can always be with me when I ride. But I also still have my lil’ Sporty too!
