FAQs – TRACK DAYS

Subscribe for updates

Motorcycle riding – It’s our passion. Our release. Our time. A get away from the everyday and just
relax. But as much as we love our 2 and 3 wheels, there are times where a ride may challenge our skills,
causing stress, fear and where we may simply question ourselves and our ability to ride. Drop our bike
and we suddenly become our own worst critic. What if you knew, whatever the situation arises,
whatever road conditions you face, whatever parking challenge is placed before you – you are
completely confident to handle it like a boss. All eyes on you? No worries, you’ve got this.
I have coached many women over several years to help improve their riding skills and gain confidence so
they can enjoy riding to the fullest. It’s simply done by practicing basic riding exercises with correct
technique. If you have recently received your motorcycle license, or are an experienced rider, continued
skills practice is critical to safety and success on the road. Understanding how you and your motorcycle
work together, creates confidence. Continued skills practice on your bike, saves lives. At our practice
field day at the Women’s Motorcycle Summit in Phoenix, you can work on your skills with several
exercises at your pace. We will be out there to encourage, support and cheer you on as you discover a
new strength in yourself and feel empowered to handle whatever comes your way down the road.
Practice Often, ride safe,
