Female Ride Instructors

I am a lady rider with 41 years in the saddle. I love seeing new female riders but wish the dealerships would really care about their safety and welfare instead of just grabbing their money when ladies look at bike buying. I see too many gals on bikes that are simply not fitted to them correctly. Also too many brand new riders with too much power and no experience under their belts getting hurt or killed. I own a private riding school and really enjoy helping ladies learn to ride. I get a lot of clients who have been told by group riding schools that they will never learn to ride. All it takes is someone like me with patience and giving them individual attention and they master the necessary skills to be safe, competent rider. I would love to read about other lady rider coaches.

I am a newbie rider, passed my MSF course (June 23rd 2013) and have my license and my 'baby bike, Liza' otherwise known as a V Star 250 and I can ride her on the road etc but as a newbie guidance and practice is always a good thing.
Are you still giving lessons etc my want is guidance, hubby has been really good and patient with me, when we ride he always leads and checks on me but it is different than a woman teaching.

I am in Ventura county so not tooooo far.

Where are you located. I would love to learn to ride. The group instruction is very expensive.

Lady Instructors
by: Dorathy

Well- If you want to vacation in So. Cal, I could teach you. I charge $20 per hour or a 3 hour session for $50. I get most newbies ready to take and pass the DMV skills test within 10 hours but that also includes a couple of actual street rides.

Lady Riders

I took the safety class at a local college. It was taught by men but 8 out of the 12 students in my class were women. I was thrilled. I had no experience what-so-ever on a bike and the weather conditions were less than favorable. I learned so much. The class was great. I had already purchased a Harley Sportster 883 prior to class and my instructor did tell me that I should get something smaller and work up to that size. I cannot say enough good things about the class. I encourage everyone to take it; male or female.

Learning to ride
by: Jen

I think that it is wonderful that you have the patience and time to teach Female riders. I have been wanting to get my license to ride for a few years now but the cost has been a large hindrance. For a ladies course at the local Harley dealer it costs in excess of $300.00. I can take the course at a local community college for $180.00 but these courses are taught by men. I wish there were many more lady riders out there that would share their knowledge and experience with those wishing to learn! You Go Girl! :) I can only hope that one day I will join your ranks!
