Genevieve Schmitt, the founder of Women Riders Now, is the new featured rider headlining the womens section of Harley-Davidsons Web site, www.harley-davidson.com. The posting includes an interview with Genevieve, a picture, and some interesting facts about her.
Laura Denissen, the person in charge of electronic communication at Harley-Davidson, said, “Genevieve serves as a well-respected motorcycling role model for women. Not only is she a skilled rider, but she has been able to turn her hobby and passion into her vocation. She championed a motorcycle magazine just for women and currently writes for numerous motorcycle publications. Through her work as a journalist and industry figure, she has encouraged both women who aspire to ride and women who want to take their skills to the next level. Harley-Davidson is excited to feature Genevieve as a part of the harley-davidson.com Women amp; Motorcycling section.”
Harley-Davidson has a section of its Web site devoted just to women. H-D executives believe women riders may need a little extra hand-holding to get them started learning to ride. The women and motorcycling section has riding stories, historical accounts, info on learning to ride, and a featured rider interview. Genevieves interview was posted on www.harley-davidson.com on Monday March 13 and will be live on the site for three months. After that, the interview goes into the archives.
