There’s a mentality that motorcycles are geared more toward men. The plethora of male-dominated clubs and gangs support that mentality and motorcycle companies push that idea even more. However, in the last several decades, there has been a major shift as women are taking to motorcycles just as much, if not more. It seems a statement of some sort with these women striking for their independence and forming their own clubs too. It’s a great way for them to bond and also present a positive image for younger women.
It helps when some of these ladies look incredibly beautiful. It’s not just common riders as scores of female celebrities are also avid motorcycle riders. While it’s easy for a company to use a beautiful model to show off a bike, many women are serious about riding them as well. They create amazing images to the point where entire calendars center around these gals. Here are 18 pics of women on motorcycles that are amazing to show how well beauties and bikes go together.
18 Miller Time
Marisa Miller is one of the hottest supermodels around, having graced countless covers. Having her do some photoshoots on a motorcycle makes for a terrific sight. But this is no mere prop as Miller is an avid biker, for real.
She’s done several photoshoots for Harley-Davidson and rides their bikes. She once shared the observation of “men are like motorcycles in that they can be dangerous if handled improperly.” It shows how a model can be a fantastic biker too.
17 Ripping Rodriguez
One reason Michelle Rodriguez is so loved is that she’s just as tough in real life as she is on screen. The Fast and Furious movies usually have her behind the wheel of a car but she has ridden a few motorcycles as well.
Rodriguez is a self-confessed adrenaline junkie, taking part in races and can often be seen riding around Los Angeles on her Ducati. This pic shows the more glamorous side of Rodriguez when she can ride as well as Letty ever could.
16 Jumping Jones
Krysten Ritter is an actress capable of jumping between comedy and drama with ease. She’s best known for her starring role as Jessica Jones and her sultry looks lend themselves well to her parts.
Ritter has used a motorcycle in her shows and rides a lot in real life as well. This Esquire photo shoot had her looking boiling hot on a Harley and showing herself off nicely. Ritter seems to have cut down on such riding as she’s now a mom but would look terrific if she ever gets on the hog again.
15 Blonde Bombshell
Blondes and bikes are just a natural combination. Something about a blonde woman is also guaranteed to get a man’s engine running. Putting her on top of a stunning motorcycle just makes it even better.
This lady clearly showcases that attitude with a fun pouting expression and looks very alluring in her outfit. Even with her helmet on, she could easily stop traffic when taking the road and be a hot sight.
14 Soulful Singer
When you sing a song titled “Drive It Like I Stole It,” it’s only natural one is a speed freak. Krista Mae is a country music singer whose songs have played on motocross shows on ESPN. She’s also an avid biker who’s taken part in several competitions.

13 Sweet Sydney

12 Indian Summer
While many female motorcyclists prefer modern machines, some are lovers of classic vintage bikes. Indian Motorcycle was the first motorcycle company in the United States and still produces classic-styled bikes.
This model looks like she stepped right out of the 1940s in a classic dress, leather helmet and a lovely look on her face. She seems ready to handle the vintage bike and show how an “old-styled” ride can look just as great today.
11 Chopra’s Chopper
Often landing on lists of the most beautiful women in the world, Priyanka Chopra was a fantastic star in the Bollywood movie scene. She broke out in the United States in the ABC series Quantico and is known for her marriage to Nick Jonas.

7 Burn Rubber
Harley Davidson has realized how the female motorcyclist is a market they need to tap in to. They’ve thus reached out with a new line of bikes aimed at women. As it happens, many female motorcyclists prefer the classic Harley with just a bit of customization.
The company continues to release new models and a line of female clothing yet many female bikers prefer more to show off they can handle these hogs just as well (if not better) than some guys.
6 Ring the Bell
Catherine Bell has been a popular TV actress for several years. She got her big break on the long-running JAG, moved onto Army Wives and can currently be seen on The Good Witch.

3 Take the Curve
Female motorcyclists do face the challenge of sexism. It’s sad to say but the “women are bad drivers” line continues to be accepted as truth by too many men. Statistically, women are less likely to get into a biking accident than men are and their smaller weight helps control the bike better.
This gal is showing that off nicely by taking the curve with some skills and proving female bikers can handle their machines well.
2 The Open Road
The rise in female motorcyclists has been noted by many magazines. It’s a great sign of their independence and how they can handle the harsh road trips as well as many men can.
