They are much more than ladies enjoying motorcycling for the simple and unique pleasure of casual riding. They all embrace other linked activities like racing, publishing, raising money for diverse charities, promoting the sport to other women, building motorcycles, painting them, engraving chrome or designing parts and gear conceived for them.
They are today the most influential women of our industry. 22 of them are featured in the best seller book Biker Chicz of North America where you can read their compelling, intriguing, fascinating and inspirational stories. They are all beautiful for their intelligence, courage, tenacity, each of them having a very different life itinerary but leading them all to become bikers et to contribute to our sport.
Those present in Sturgis stopped by the gorgeous Native American Prairie Edge Gallery in Rapid City to meet with their fans and sign the book that Edward Winterhalder dedicated to them. Biker Chicz Of North America is an inspirational tale for all women who have thought about riding but never took action, but it is also a book that all male bikers should read to understand, appreciate and respect even more all female riders that they meet on or at the end of the road.
