Some of you may know I’m on the Coalition At-Large Board (CAB) of the Women’s Coalition of Motorcyclists (WCM).
The CAB has been hard at work for what seems like forever on creating surveys for women riders. Our aim is to quantify all of the anecdotal stories we hear about what women want and need from the motorcycling industry. Armed with data, we can show industry leaders where efforts are best spent in improving the landscape for women in motorcycling.
This initial series of surveys focuses on four areas of the industry: rider training, motorcycle design, safety gear, and dealership operations. We’ll be staggering the release of each over time to manage the influx of data.

I’ll update the survey links as we release each one, so keep an eye on it and get your voice heard as a woman rider!
The CAB is a dream team of women riders. It’s been an extraordinary privilege to meet with them each week and hammer out this huge project. So huge shout out to these awesome lady riders: Kerri Brooks, Bobbie Carlson, Wendy Crocket, and Lisa Malachowsky.
And big love to the BMW Rider’s Association for highlighting our work in their chat series with John M. Flores. Getting the word out is hard and having their support means the world to us.
Here’s the official press release from WCM. I hope you’ll participate in all of the surveys as they get released.
Let’s crunch some data and forge the future of women motorcyclists!
