People whose impressions of motorcycle riders are straight from the classic film “Easy Rider” may need to adjust those perceptions, particularly in regard to the gender of the rider. A 2018 survey from the Motorcycle Industry Council found that roughly one in five motorcycle owners is a woman. That figure spiked considerably during the second decade of the 21st century, as fewer than 10% of motorcycle owners were women in the 2000s. Motorcycles tend to be even more popular among younger women, as the MIC survey found 26% of Millennial motorcycle owners were women.
