About Moto Girl Café:
Robin Dail created Moto Girl Café in February 2014 intended as a hub for women to share their love and passion for motorcycling. Robin said recently, “Women who love to ride needed a place to gather and expand our community. A place to gather and talk, to exchange photos, videos and stories and find gear specific to the needs of women riders. This is what Moto Girl Café brings to the motorcycling community. We will introduce women who don’t ride to the thrill of riding and help promote confidence in young girls to get out there and find adventure on motorcycles! Because, we love motorcycling!”
