Ron Galletti– Creative Director, Publisher and Executive Producer of the longest running biker television show in the world – “Born To Ride”
The number of motorcycle women is on the incline and continues to trend upward. In 1998, only 8 percent of motorcycle owners were women. By late 2018, female ownership had more than doubled, increasing to nearly 20 percent (Motorcycle Industry Council).
As older riders age out of motorcycling, they’re being replaced by a greater percentage of women on the younger end of the spectrum.
- Why has female motorcycle riding started to increase?
- Do women spend more money on their bike than men?
- Have manufacturers welcomed the diversity?
- Do women tend to be safer than men on their bikes?
Ron Galletti uses his riding background to discuss the trend of female motorcycle riders and how it has impacted the industry. He has just produced the 1200th episode of the widely popular television show, “Born To Ride.” This is a tremendous milestone that highlights “Born To Ride” as the longest running biker and motorcycle TV show in the world that reaches millions of television viewers every week.
