Thousands Of Female Riders Help Harley-Davidson Kick Start Women Riders Month

Harley-Davidson reports Women Riders Month kicked-off with two special events in New York City and Milwaukee respectively in honor of International Female Ride Day on May 1, which was founded by Vicki Gray of Motoress.com.

Nearly 100 female motorcycle enthusiasts, including Karen Davidson, the great-granddaughter of one of the Motor Company’s founders, as well as trainer and life coach Jillian Michaels, attended an International Female Ride Day party near New York City. Country music singer Krista Marie led nearly 300 women on a special ride from Miller Park to the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee.

In addition to current riders hitting the road to celebrate, 1,225 women participated in new rider training the first weekend in May, either through Harley-Davidson’s Rider’s Edge New Rider Course hosted at select dealerships across the country or through the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) Basic RiderCourseSM, to help establish a world record for the number of women trained in one weekend.

Harley-Davidson’s Rider’s Edge New Rider Course saw a 59 percent increase in women participation this year, compared to the same weekend last year. This activity supports a larger goal of encouraging 100,000 women to learn to ride a motorcycle.

“The successful rides, as well as the record-setting weekend for rider training, show that thousands of women are taking the controls and learning to ride their very own motorcycles,” said Leslie Prevish, women’s outreach manager, Harley-Davidson.
