As women have taken to motorcycling in larger numbers, Harley Davidson has responded by offering motorcycles and gear that suit the wants and needs of women riders. No other company has done so much to promote motorcycle riding for women, so it’s no surprise that they are one of the few companies to tailor their offerings for women. They’ve even taken it a step further by offering riding instruction and clubs in an atmosphere that makes women comfortable.
It doesn’t take long for a new rider to realize that the tough look and attitude of Harley Davidson is a facade. The riders are some of the nicest people and the attitude is misunderstood. Once a rider discovers the freedom and personal empowerment of riding, they do look at the world differently and realize that there’s more to life than spreadsheets, casual Fridays, and the usual mundane nuances that lull people into a boring life. It can all be so much more exciting.
Finding a look and style that’s your own and functional is important, but finding the right motorcycle gear that works for women is difficult. Take your handbag for example. If the everyday purse is used, it’s a chore. The purse needs to be strapped to the motorcycle or stored in the saddlebags. Every time that it’s needed, it needs to be unstrapped or dug out of a saddlebag. There’s no need for this if you have a Harley Davidson handbag that’s made for riding. The designs are specifically for riding. The contents are secure and the handbag can be easily secured to your clothing or the motorcycle itself.
There are many ways to make your style functional for riding. There are custom pieces like handbags and motorcycle clothing tailor made for riding. Converting conventional clothing rarely works well. Motorcycle clothing with safety and function in mind may cost a little more, but they increase your riding confidence and the overall enjoyment a rider gets from their functionality.Share This
