Largest Women’s Only Ride.

Have you ever seen 500 women riding together? Only if you watched the March parade going from Atlanta to Daytona and led by Karen Davidson, great-granddaughter of one of the Harley-Davidson company’s founders. The event had for objective to raise money for MDA (muscular Dystrophy Association) and these women riders we able to get $67,000 in contributions. The success of Women’s Day Ride reflects the growth of women riders during the last 20 years, going from 4% to 12% of all motorcycles registered in the US. Initially, the event was limited to 105 women, but more and more women wanted to join and Harley-Davidson was able to accommodate 500 of them. Friend Sasha Mullins, our Biker Lady (seen here on right with Karen Davidson) was in the group and wrote for me…and you the little text below.
“Yeah, the skies were pregnant with a little rain all day. But I’ll tell you what didn’t wait to drop, TEARS of JOY. Oh, the 500+ women riding in the parade felt the tears take a cheekward stroll as we participated in a history-making event. Harley-Davidson’s first ever women’s parade. From Music City USA, I rode first to Atlanta using the southbound twists and wide open highway en route to my destination: the curvaceous celebration of Harley and Buell chicks riding together in the first ever Parade of its kind. Oh the power of our Hour Glass – it is ALL in the CURVES as folks hailed the femme force of riders roaring down Daytona International Speedway and onto A1A. Led by Karen Davidson of the Harley-Davidson empire and a group of six selected females who wrote compelling essays about their riding experience and mentors, including the female executives of Harley-Davidson’s women’s outreach program, we waved and revved, blazing a new Parade trail. Let the pictures tell the story".
