I started photographing women motorcyclists in the late 1980s when I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area. I was struck by the number of women motorcyclists I saw all around. I had been motorcycling since my Sears-Roebuck mo-ped days when I was about twelve years old, but I had never seen more than a few motorcycle women in all those years. Maybe I had led a sheltered life, but I determined to photograph as many of these women as I could meet around the country. I intend to publish a book of these photographs, accompanied by a bit of the story from each of them.
