Girls on wheels

Girls ride bikes too, right?

When I lived in Brisbane selling motorcycles I was always surprised when a girl came into the dealership and bought a bike. All the guys would get excited. Not in a weird creepy way but in a ‘that chick is so cool’ way. I think it shows an adventurous side. Whatever it is, it always generated interest!

I want to find out why so many girls love jumping on the back of a motorcycle but don’t want to ride one. I recently conducted a survey and found that 37.5% of woman in New Zealand want to get their motorcycle licence but haven’t. I want to find out what is stopping them.

Join me as I go on a search to uncover the reason(s) that hold a girl back from actually getting a motorcycle licence.

To do this, I need your input. I want to know your thoughts, fears, concerns and your why and why not’s. Let’s dig into this together. If you have a friend who you think would have some valuable input into this discussion hit the share button or one of the social media links.

But before you comment, I want to draw your attention to these two extremely talented young woman.

Female Talent

This is Ana Carrasco. 21 years young. She made history after winning the 2018 World Supersport Championship making her the first female rider to ever take out a World Championship in solo motorcycle road racing.

This is Avalon Biddle. 26 years young. She races in the Supersport 600 NZTT. I had the pleasure of watching her win a race by 0.006 seconds at Hampton Downs Raceway. An amazingly talented kiwi doing us all proud.

My point is, girls can ride and they can ride well. In these two cases far better than I can. So what do you say New Zealand, let’s hear what you have to say about girls on wheels.
