Women Riders

Businesses are Catering More to Women Riders

Written by  June 1, 2013

There are myriad sites that either cater to women riders or at least include them in their information and offers. What I will attempt to do this month is go through as many as I can and bring to one place some resources and businesses that have what women want, need, and didn’t know they wanted until they saw it here.

As women make up more and more of the total riding community (at almost 25% now), we can expect to see more businesses, ezines and internet sites continue to come along that are devoted primarily to their needs and their unique perspective. The links below are a small sampling of all the places women bikers now have to go for everything they want; businesses that not only cater to women riders but also are owned by them as well.

Black Widow Bike Works is owned by Joy Montefusco and located in Shrewsbury, New Jersey. It is a full service custom motorcycle shop, Harley-Davidson certified, but will work on all bikes.

Motoress, founded by Vicki Gray who is a racer, instructor, coach, and journalist, is an ezine filled with information for the female rider.

The Original Cutthroat Customs is located in Humble, Texas and owned by Heather Wright. Heather designed Joan Krenning’s Freedom Glide Harley. She also designs beautiful wedding invitations and does freelance graphic work.

Speaking of Joan, she is the founder of Design Wraps Brands, Inc. headgear and apparel made in America.

Women Riders Now is another ezine devoted to women riders. From reviews to the latest news, WRN is the go-to site, even for me.

Sheila Mace owns Art By Weeze, where you can order custom painted helmets in addition to traditional original works of art.

Lady bikers can find some unique, American-made clothing at Daytona Thunderwear. You will see choices for women, children, and pets. The guys have to go elsewhere.

Another source of great information such as reviews of everything from bikes to boots, news, along with a Facebook page with all their latest news is Women Motorcyclist.
