changes for the better.
For years, motorcycle riders have
always had a certain infamous reputation. Especially when they travel in
packs, motorcycle riders are feared by others. They are often depicted
by media, particularly in films, as the proponents of massive brawls and
unprovoked violence. Furthermore, bikers are often stereo typed as
people who are uneducated and have nothing better to do than terrorize
people as they move from bar to bar, transported by their big bikes.
This kind of behavior and reputation
however, does not precede the various, responsible motorcycle bike
riders that all happen to be women. Although associations of women
motorcycle riders have been established since decades ago, the growing
number of responsible motorcycle riding women along with their numerous
contributions to society are only beginning to constantly garner
attention and praise. At last, motorcycle riders, particularly, female
motorcycle riders have been able to revise popular opinion about how
they are perceived.
Going beyond promoting the wearing
of helmets when riding motorcycles, these women riders from different
women riders associations, help each other and help society as a whole
with their various activities. Common activities done during meetings
within these women bike rider groups are talks on safety on the riding
as well as practical, do it yourself troubleshooting for motorcycles.
Beyond that, many individuals, as
well as women rider groups have been, and continues to be actively
involved in raising funds and awareness for certain charities and
causes. While as individuals, these women may have very different
backgrounds, preferences and inclinations, but they all have the passion
for biking in common as well as the need to be better at serving society
through this particular passion.

helmets and jackets is a truly remarkable breed. They have successfully
