The Harley-Davidson Pink Label clothing collection is for women and part of the proceeds of sales of this collection go to the US National Breast Cancer Association. So there’s no better way for biker girls to dress this summer. The collection includes a huge gear range for women of Harley-Davidson leather jackets, activewear pants and hooded jumpers, knitted tops and t-shirts and a range of technical accessories including a classic jet helmet, gloves, scarfs and neck warmers.
There are even a couple of Pink Label accessories for guys who want to support the women in their lives affected by cancer. Otherwise, for men this year, Harley-Davidson has a Black Label Collection this year with a modern slim fit style but a cool vintage look. The classic Black Label leather jacket is available along with check shirts and caps. See the Harley-Davidson site for more, or for online orders.
BMW’s original “Unscripted” videos showed mostly BMW cars and their owners doing weird and wonderful stuff in various parts of the world, but this time the company has decided to feature a female rider, Tiffany Coates, and her trusty BMW R80GS. The bike, called Thelma (from Thelma and Louise??), has taken its rider across five continents with Coates probably being an authority on great motorcycle itineraries. Apart from a novel and interesting perspective on life that deserves some respect, this video includes some stunning scenery as well. Enjoy.

Here’s Bri Stiles introducing herself as a candidate for last year’s Miss Arenacross competition. Not only can she ride, work hard in promotions and pull off her own publicity, she’s also a very attractive blonde motocross rider. Don’t let the pink put you off - Bri is a real biker babe meaning she actually knows how to ride.

The Women’s International Motorcycling Association is moving its conference to Japan next year after a successful edition concludes at Keystone in the US. With opportunities to ride the Loveland Pass and see some spectacular scenery, it will be interesting to see what’s on offer again in 2010.
The women’s rider event included other longer rides to Aspen and the hot sulphur springs, with the serious business of seminars and conferences also taking place. The event concluded with more demo rides and of course, the annual banquet.
While not all women were expected to go off and brave solo riding trips like Lois Pryce’s motorcycle tour from the UK to the tip of South Africa, next year’s event should be equally inspiring. More pics and news from Sarah Schilke on Motorcycle-USA.
Yamaha is keeping up the good work, but this time amongst the ladies. A Yamaha press release reveals another champion win with the female German rider Nina Prinz winning the 2008 Road Racing Women’s European Championship.
Nina dominated the entire 2008 season riding her Yamaha YZF-R1 and at the last round of the championship last Sunday at the Spanish Albacete, she took her second consecutive championship win.
Yamaha Motor Europe Racing Division Manager Laurens Klein Koerkamp said about the victory: “This is a well earned victory for Nina Prinz and the Yamaha Motor Germany Team. Yamaha’s support of her racing career is a great example of the importance we place on having women involved in motorcycling. We will continue to reach out to this sector of the market and nurture its development.”
It’s nice to pose when the weather conditions are good. So sometimes -when they’re not so good- a model can really feel the cold just like today. It was cold and dark outside, so we started the photo shoot with Amanda wearing a warm jacket.
Amanda is her name and she likes bikes and posing. She was born in Belgium in October, so you can wish her a happy birthday if you want. This occasion we went to the Belgian racetrack in Zolder, unfortunately the weather was not so good. We did this shoot to promote our racing team and to use the pictures during the “Miss Coast Contest”.

Harley Davidson continues to celebrate its 105th anniversary, this time with the Women’s Ride: “let’s do it the American way”!
Today we give you the introduction to Dutch rider Susanne Bolhaar. Susanne is 31 years of age and started racing after enjoying some track days in 2005.
Susanne said to TwoWheels: “After getting the necessary licenses I started to race in the Dutch KNMV races, the Dutch National Championship. I chose the Supercup 600 class. Because of the fun of racing I was thinking trying once in the EW cup, the European Women’s Cup. And I started in the Dutch town Hengelo. I did not expected the result: I finished 5th! So I decided to join the whole championship. In the general standings I finished 9th and I was happy with the result, because it was my first year in the Cup.
In 2007 I joined the podium twice during the KNMW races at Oschersleben but the year ended badly for me. I crashed out and I hurt my wrist. Until today I am working on a rehabilitation programme for my wrist. But, I hope to be back in competition soon. If you want to know more about me, you can have a look at my Dutch website. And I want to say “Hi, thanks for reading” to all TwoWheels Blog visitors!”
Thank you Susanne and sure, TwoWheels Blog will follow you to see you riding soon!
