    While riding a motorcycle might have once seemed like a very masculine activity, that’s definitely not the case today. More and more women are getting into motorcycles and female ridership has climbed within the last decade by significant numbers.

    Women now represent 19 percent of all riders, the Motorcycle Industry Council found in a recent survey. This is compared to a mere one in 10 riders being female a little less than a decade ago. The MIC believes that if trend continues, women could soon represent a quarter of all owners.

    Nationally, the MIC polled 2,472 adults and found that there is actually a higher number of female riders in the younger generations. Twenty-two percent of Gen X riders were women and 26 percent of Gen Y were women.
