The Future of Motorcycling Part 1
We met with Sarah from the Harleys Owners Group. A group that meets about twice a month for different events, functions, and rides.
Sarah, who is 27, is a Muslim woman and motorcycle rider. She says as a Muslim woman, the riding community has been very warm, welcoming, accepting and inviting.
As for the future of motorcycling, shes says the community that is diverse but comes together with shared interests of wanting to get out together and explore. In a very polarized and diverse community, the riding people have come together.
Women don't have to be fearless to be brave.
Sarah has bonded with the people in her group because just as she is discriminated against for wearing her hijab, riders from the community are discriminated against because of their gear and the stereotypes placed upon them.
Inclusiveness in the riding community is what keeps is women coming back and passing it on to the next generation.
If you are blessed enough to live where you can be riding today, please remember to ride like everyone around you is blind and can not see you.
