New Sponsor: AMPP – Advanced Motorcycle Paint Protection

Small motorcycle initiatives are hard work. Despite being a hobby, YouMotorcycle and bikerMetric serve up 165,000 page views to over 70,000 motorcyclists every month.

Much to my chagrin, many of them end up tweeting about their dinner, their dog, their children, and Sons of Anarchy. Now, I like the TV show as much anyone, although not as much as many of you, but come on!

Pink Motorcycle Gear

Sitting on a sunny patch of grass we saw her, in her highlighter pink gear. She climbed off after parking awkwardly. Her gear and her bike looked like they were either impeccably well kept, or hadn’t seen much road. I looked back to our helmets and bikes. They were stained, scratched and splattered. They were seasoned vets. Even my ex’s gear showed all the wear of many happy roads together. Their beauty was in their miles, not in their parking lot grassy hillside appeal.

My ex rolled her eyes as the girl left her bike. “I hate pink,” she declared.

As a female motorcyclist, what does pink gear mean to you?



I decided to do a little survey of some of my female motorcyclist blogging friends from across the world. The question was: "As a female motorcyclist, what does pink gear mean to you?". The results were as diverse as the women who wrote in.
