Wonder if this is true here too?  Would love to pay cheaper premiums.  Pink rides a Bonnie.

<DIV>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. </DIV>
The growing popularity of women motorcyclists can also be seen in the huge range of A-list female 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.
Swinton Bikes states from their experience that if women are generally safer riders and have fewer accidents, it would also mean less motorbike insurance claims and lower premiums.
The UK has been reputed in the past five years for recognition this fact and most insurance organizations will offer a lower premium for women.
It’s a good idea when either getting new insurance or revisiting your current policy to seek out an insurance provider willing to reward these statistics.

Hi Scarlett, thanks for posting this link. Great news and articles on women riders. Have not seen this one before. &nbsp;I am new to the club have been on a few rides. (Cheques in the mail) haha. I like the long saturday cruises&nbsp; and the overnighters. Bezza the human GPS always posts a good run.&nbsp; Look forward to catching up with a few more of the club members over the coming months.

I\'ve always heard that men get into more accidents than women. Most men drive with aggression and anger. Most of the drivers that seem like they want to kill me or run me off the road were always men. They really do have a lot of pent-up rage.<br><br><a>Professional Women Organization</a><br>

<DIV>Hi Warrty,</DIV>
<DIV>My 2 cents.</DIV>
<DIV>I reackon the accidents may be related to the increased tendency for men to speed and take risks.&nbsp; </DIV>
<DIV>Also generaly, male riders seem to spend more time on bikes.&nbsp; (Probably while we women are doing the work).<img></DIV>
<DIV>I would like to believe it is because women are just generally superior, that we have fewer accidents, but&nbsp;it\'s probably more about women having more common sense and less free&nbsp;time.</DIV>
<DIV>I also wondered what was classified as&nbsp; an \"accident\".&nbsp; Being based in \"insurance\" stats perhaps they only included fairly major accidents and not the common slow or standing \"drop\" that I\'ve lost count on how many times I\'ve seen.</DIV>
<DIV>Must say from my observations I\'ve seen a lot more women have accidents, both minor and major.</DIV>
<DIV>Come on girls...shiny side up!</DIV>
<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV>PS Welcome to the club ozdane.&nbsp; Love your Zephyr and I\'m glad you enjoyed the link...it is good to have a bit of a positive about lady riders.</DIV><edited><editID>Scarlet</editID><editDate>2011-10-09 09:39:22</editDate></edited>

I think women wearing leather chaps interfere with male rider concentration when least expecting it.Ie when catching up a women rider through a corner.He looses line touches the gravel,whamo.Another statistic.The women riding on blissfully unaware of her part in the whole event.<img>
