Over the past 30 days, two events and the release of the 2012 second quarter motorcycle sales figures have generated a flurry of positive media coverage about women who ride motorcycles.
Sportbike Track Girl will host an all-women's "Ladies First" track day on Monday, October 1, 2012, at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama. Free rental leathers are being offered for those who register before September 21, while supplies last. The cost to participate is $235.
The Motorcycle Industry Council (MIC) recently released motorcycles sales figures for the first half of 2012 and the news is promising. After five years of slumping sales and serious market shrinkage, the MIC reported that U.S. motorcycle sales are up 2.8% for the first two quarters of 2012.

With a diverse lineup and strong brand that resonates worldwide, it is no surprise that a growing number of female motorcycle riders have made Honda their brand of choice.

This year's AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference will take place from July 26th to the 29th in Carson City, Nevada. AMA members can save $50 by registering online before April 30, 2012. The conference is an opportunity for motorcyclists from all walks of life to connect and learn from each other and enjoy the camaraderie shared by people who ride -- in this case mostly women.
The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) doesn't host a women's conference every year; it's more like every three. This summer, hundreds of female motorcyclists and industry representatives will converge on Carson City, Nevada for the 2012 International Women & Motorcycling Conference.
