An article published in the Merced Sun-Star reports that in California, the number of women holding a Class M1 license (motorcycle license) increased 27% compared to four years ago.

Jack Becker, who teaches a motorcycle training class in the Central Valley of California, said there has a been steady increase in the number of female students:

"Probably 30 to 40 percent of our students are ladies (now)," Becker said. "Ten years ago, maybe it was 10 or 15 percent."
The article goes on to report how women have become the fastest growing demographic among motorcycle riders. But some things never change:

"Usually, the husbands don't want to give up their first bike, so they'll give it to their wives and then get a new bike for themselves," she said. "(The women) get the hand-me-downs, but who cares? It's still a Harley."
