I was reminiscing about one of the first panels of riders I was on in the early 90's in preparation for which I'd searched the internet to find information to share a snapshot of women riders. 9 1/2 out of 10 of the sites I visited featured women as decoration. Riding their own bikes? Well, not really.

Fast forward to this article Chris sent me today:


The first statistic astounded me:
Many women are overcoming that trepidation. About 23 per cent of Canadian riders are female, says Jo-Anne Farquar, director of communications and public affairs for the Motorcycle and Moped Industry Council.
And I loved how the article went on to really note the importance of good gear - not just "pretty".

Which caused me to wonder, what changes have you seen?
