05/17/11 -- According to research from Swinton Bikes, there has been an increase in women bikers taking to the roads in the past year, and they seem to be leading the way in biker safety.
Swinton Bikes, one of the UK's leading high street retailers of motorbike insurance has seen a 14% increase in the number of women seeking bike insurance quotes compared to this time last year.
Research has also shown that, proportionately, women motorbike riders are safer riders than male motorcyclists. In addition, while men may be reluctant to take up further training after passing their motorcycle test, women tend to demonstrate greater interest in advanced rider development training and safety courses after they have obtained their license.
The growing popularity of women motorcyclists can be seen in the vast array of A-list celebrities who have swapped four wheels for two. Well known motorcycle riders and enthusiasts include Charlize Theron, Megan Fox, KD Lang, Angelina Jolie, Pink, Alanis Morissette and Courtney Cox, to name a few.
