Overview

In Biker Chicz of North America, Edward Winterhalder and Wil De Clercq have compiled in-depth profiles of twenty-two fascinating women who ride Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Each chapter features an individual whose life story is compelling, intriguing, fascinating, and inspirational.

Global studies indicate that 12 to 18 percent of motorcycling enthusiasts are women. The number of women motorcycle riders in North America has increased exponentially since the early 1990s, and that exciting trend continues. American Motorcycle Industry Council statistics indicate that over one million new motorcycles were sold in the United States in 2008. Of that impressive number more than 100,000 were sold to women.

While each woman featured in this book is unique and extraordinary in her own right, there are, not surprisingly, certain attributes they all have in common. In addition to being avowed motorcycle riders—they live to ride and ride to live—they are successful, intelligent, freethinking, adventurous, creative, inspiring, and tenacious. They are women who have followed their dreams and dared to live life on their own terms. All are survivors who boldly took on challenges that many of us—men or women—would find daunting. Some of them came by their success easily, others by triumphing over adversity.

Despite their common traits, most are as different as night and day. Some are introverted, others extroverted; some are family oriented, others are loners. They'll be the first to admit, however, that without their Harleys, they would not be who they are today. Their beloved motorcycles are what defines them and what sets them apart from their nonriding sisters.

    a great read

    Bikers with alot in common but yet they come from such diverse backgrounds. Each chapter is devoted to a woman who has proved her metal in this life and has contributed to our biker lifestyle. A book you'll be glad you read.

    Highly Recommended

    I'm not a real biker person and this book was given to me by a friend. Really enjoyed reading the background info on the differant girls and how they got into bikes and the biker world in general. All of them had similar experiences but also widely differant backgrounds and reasons for why they are now considered biker chicz's. Good reading for anbody that loves the biker world but also interesting reading if you just like to know the behind scenes of why people do things as I do. Good Christmas present.
