Quick, imagine a motorcyclist. Picture that person clearly in your mind. Is it a man or a woman? For most of us, we probably automatically pictured a man, because most bikers are men, and that’s what we see most in the media. However, that doesn’t have to be the case.
In fact, there are tons of female bikers out there, we just don’t see them represented as often. There are websites now devoted to women motorcylists.

If you’re a woman, there’s no reason that you shouldn’t be riding a hog down the highway with the wind in your face and set of Michelin tires underneath you. If you’ve ever thought about taking up riding a motorcycle, then here are three reasons you should.
Be a Trendsetter
It’s 2016, and yet there are still so many areas that are dominated by men. From science and engineering to sports and business, it seems that men are trying to keep everything as a boy’s club. Fortunately, there is no entry requirement for being a motorcycle enthusiast, which means that all you need to get started is a bike, a sweet women’s motorcycle jacket, and the desire to ride. The more you go out and show people how fulfilling it is to ride, the more likely you are to bring other women into the lifestyle.
Make New Friends
Even though the area of motorcycling is dominated by men, that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of boss ladies who ride with the best of them. Motorcycle culture is already a tight-knit community, so joining the club means that you can increase your social circle and meet many new and exciting people. If you’re looking for a plus one for your bike, you can easily meet your future spouse.
Get in Shape
Eating healthy and getting enough exercise is difficult for many, but if you spend a lot of your free time shopping for motorcycle parts online and riding for fun, then you probably don’t have time to get into shape. Fortunately, being on the back of a bike (especially going off-roading) works out your muscles. For women especially, it can help your bones get stronger.
