Today Show does Segment on Women’s Motorcycle Month

According to the Motorcycle Industry Council, women riders increased by 34 percent between 1998 and 2003. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation says women make up nearly 30 percent of students in its Basic RiderCourses program.

“There are more than 4.3 million women motorcyclists on the road today, and more are joining our ranks every day,” says Beth Hazen, a motorcyclist and Nationwide Insurance agent. “Women’s Motorcycle Month celebrates the pioneers who broke down gender and racial barriers in the early days of motorcycling, and we hope their stories inspire even more women to consider getting out on bikes or scooters this summer.”

Jenna Wolf, Today show correspondent, takes her first ever motorcycle ride in this segment.

  1. To bring recognition to women motorcyclists is awesome. I would love to see more women riding & to cast away any doubt or fears they may have about riding. I was very disappointed to hear your show host whine about it was too dangerous a hobby. With that statement she flushed any positive PR regarding women and motorcycles. :-(

  2. Girlfriend said the article does not address women motorcycle subjects she wants addressed. It was too much fluff and not enough substance.
