Woman Motorcyclists

Nowhere is the passion and dedication of women motorcyclists more apparent than at an AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference. The popular event returns July 26-29, 2012, this time in Carson City, Nev. – one of the West’s premier motorcycling destinations.

The AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference focuses on educating, encouraging, inspiring and mentoring women in the lifestyle and sport of motorcycling.

Early registration of $125 is available now exclusively for AMA members here. After April 30, 2012, registration will increase to $175 for AMA members and be available to non-AMA members for $235.

Tigra Tsujikawa (AMA Marketing Manager) says: “Regardless of bike brand, riding preference or background, women motorcyclists are bound together by their common passion for life on two and three wheels.

“The AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference provides all of us the opportunity to connect with, and learn from, other women riders. Through seminars, activities, training classes and organized rides, we’ll work together to gain knowledge and skills to better navigate where the road or trail leads next.”

Carson City Mayor Pro Tem Shelly Aldean said the conference is a welcome addition to her city’s 2012 calendar of events: “Carson City is delighted to be hosting the AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference in July 2012.

“We look forward to accommodating the attendees participation in the conference. We hope that during their visit, conference goers will spend some time exploring what Carson City has to offer and, as a result of our hospitality, will feel like honorary members of our community when it’s finally time to say goodbye.”

Previous AMA International Women & Motorcycling conferences have been held in Keystone, Colo.; Athens, Ga.; Buckhannon, W.Va.; Athens, Ohio; and Westerville, Ohio. They featured targeted attractions for women motorcyclists such as seminars, workshops, speeches, product and motorcycle displays and demonstrations, recreational riding and networking.

Tigra Tsujikawa says: “I am personally looking forward to this special gathering of the women’s motorcycling community, a community that has increased significantly in recent years. The 2009 event was an unforgettable experience, and the 2012 conference will offer even more camaraderie and fun.”

Tsujikawa added that men are encouraged to attend the conference as well.

Tigra Tsujikawa says: “Motorcyclists are known for their welcoming attitudes, and the AMA International Women and Motorcycling Conference is no exception. Women are encouraged to register their spouses, partners and friends, who can attend all activities. And for those just along for the ride, even if they aren’t participating in the conference, there are ample entertainment opportunities in Carson City, on and off a motorcycle.”

The sixth AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference will be held in Carson City, Nev., on July 26-29, 2012. Event and lodging information is available at womenandmotorcycling.com.
