One in ten motorcycle riders is a woman

The Philadelphia Inquirer features a profile of motorcycle dealer Lynn Nathan, who is still riding motorcycles at the age of 63.

Nathan has seen the motorcycle culture change over the years, with more women riding motorcycles now than ever.

According to a quote in the article from the Motorcycle Industry Council, one in ten motorcycle owners is a woman.

Realizing that women are now a market for motorcycles, with increasing numbers and spending power, manufacturers are marketing more bikes and accessories for women.
