I attended the recent Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and, other than the increase in attendance compared to prior rallies, I noticed another substantial change -- that a good number of women attending were riding their own motorcycles. I hadn’t been to Sturgis since 2004. At that time, I would guestimate that maybe 10% of the women at the rally were riding their own. This year, it would be closer to 40%. From my own observations at Sturgis, approximately 70% of the women riders were riding large cruiser motorcycles.
