Overview

The Women's Guide to Motorcycling: Everything a Woman Needs to Know About Bikes, Equipment, Riding, and Safety by Lynda Lahman


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 while addressing female-specific challenges as well as issues that all bikers face from a female point of view.
