The American Motorcyclist Association recently announced the fifth American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) International Women & Motorcycling Conference will take place in Keystone, Colorado, just 90 miles west of Denver on August 19-22, 2009.
According to the AMA, the AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference focuses on educating, encouraging, inspiring and mentoring women in the lifestyle and sport of motorcycling.
“This event represents the best of both worlds for women motorcyclists,” said AMA Marketing and Special Events Manager Tigra Tsujikawa. “We will have the opportunity to connect with and learn from other women riders. And through seminars, activities and classes, we’ll gain the knowledge and skills to ride where the road or trail leads next.”
The AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference is well timed. According to the Motorcycle Industry Council, women now account for 12.6 percent of all motorcycle and scooter riders, a 29 percent increase since 2003.
As the number of women motorcyclists has risen, so has attendance at the AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference. The last conference, which was held in Georgia in 2006, drew more than 1,100 participants. The AMA anticipates that number will double at the 2009 event, which will feature prominent women riders, racers and industry leaders.
