Recent statistics show that approximately 12 percent of motorcycle owners are women and that close to 25 percent of motorcycle riders are women. While it’s still a male-dominated field, the number of female bikers has increased by more than 25 percent in just five years, showing that women have a strong presence on two wheels. In The Women’s Guide to Motorcycling, author Lynda Lahman (herself a motorcycle owner and rider) provides a comprehensive look at motorcycling techniques, street smarts, and safety concerns. She also addresses female-specific challenges, as well as issues that all bikers face from a female point of view.

Inside the book, you’ll find:

  • Anecdotes from female motorcycle enthusiasts, riders, and owners, including the author’s own story
  • Women as a growing presence among riders, including notable names of the past and present
  • Motorcycle skills from basic to advanced, appropriate for bikers of all levels of experience and expertise
  • The physical and mental aspects of riding
  • Considerations for choosing a bike, such as seat height and weight distribution, and female-appropriate gear
  • A primer on proper maintenance and dealing with mechanical problems
  • Different types of riding, such as sport, racing, touring, long distance, and off road
  • Getting more out of the sport through involvement in clubs, forums, charity events, and mentoring new riders
