“Women riders represent a significant and increasing segment of the motorcycling community,” said AMA Marketing Manager Tigra Tsujikawa. “The AMA is committed to supporting these women across all ages and skill levels, and we encourage all women passionate about motorcycling to participate in the survey.”
The How Many? How Strong? survey is designed to provide a look at modern women motorcyclists and co-riders. Women can choose to participate anonymously if they desire, and any personal information volunteered will not be shared, sold or marketed.
The survey comes as the association prepares to welcome hundreds of women riders at the sixth AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference, which draws participants from as far away as Japan and Australia. The 2012 event is July 26-29 in Carson City, Nev., and the theme of “Ride Well” focuses on educating, encouraging, inspiring and mentoring women in the lifestyle and sport of motorcycling.
Tsujikawa, who has been instrumental in planning this year’s conference, said there is no better venue for women who love to ride.
“Carson City is welcoming women riders with open arms for our event,” she said. “As one of the West’s premier motorcycling destinations, it provides the perfect setting for women who are passionate about motorcycling. And with substantial discounts available to AMA members who register by May 15, as well as for those who join the AMA by purchasing a $49 membership, there’s no better place for women to share their passion for riding with like-minded riders.”
Included in the AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference registration fee is entry to seminars, the marketplace and Moto Action center, the Saturday Women’s Health Fair, priority registration for manufacturer demo rides, the Friday Night Cookout and Saturday Night Celebration Party, as well as a conference t-shirt and gift bag.
Full conference details and registration, as well as information about how to become an AMA member, are available at WomenandMotorcycling.com or on the conference Facebook page at Facebook.com/AMAWomenAndMotorcycling. Online registration is also open to the public.
