H-D's 5th Annual Women Riders Month

This month, Harley-Davidson is celebrating women riders during the fifth annual Women Riders Month with a nationwide search for top stories of female independence. From May 1 to May 15, 2013, fans are encouraged to share stories about incredible women riders they might know.

Fans can submit stories through a crowd-sourcing application called "Fan Machine" on Harley-Davidson's Facebook page (www.Facebook.com/harley-davidson). Submitted stories should highlight how women riders have unleashed their inner rebel, or inspired other women to do the same.

“Our brand unites independents from all walks of life,” said Claudia Garber, Director of Women’s Outreach Marketing for Harley-Davidson. “There are thousands of women who have taken to life on two wheels…and they all have a story to tell.  These stories are not only the lifeblood of the Harley-Davidson experience, but are instrumental in inspiring other women to live out their own dreams.”

The top 10 fan submissions will be featured on Harley-Davidson's Facebook page and other social media channels, as well as the official Web site (www.harley-davidson.com/women). Each winner will also receive a $200 Harley-Davidson gift card and Harley-Davidson merchandise.

Women interested in riding are encouraged to visit the updated Women Riders section of the Harley-Davidson Web site at www.harley-davidson.com/women. The site features tools designed to help women in their journey toward riding, including information on local Women Riders Month events planned throughout May across the country.
