Women’s Motorcycle Show Returns June 17

Women's Motorcycle Show 8
Whack a piñata, play on the Hot Wheels track, or wander through the impressive collection of motorcycle vendors. Where? At the 8th Women’s Motorcycle Show. It returns to Los Angeles in June, bringing a full day of motos, plus live music and plenty to see and do. Though it’s put on by women, for women, men are encouraged to attend to see and support women in motorcycling. And perhaps get a wake-up call to the fastest growing segment in motorcycling.
The show takes place in the Los Angeles Arts District on a one-acre compound at AutoConduct, located at 1219 S Santa Fe Ave. from 10 AM to 10 PM. Tickets are $25 for the day, with onsite food and drinks to fuel the fun.

Learn a Motorcycle Craft

The Women’s Motorcycle Show features custom, race, rare, and restored motorcycles built by and for women. Whether you tour, race, adventure, build, or want a bike built for you, there will be plenty to experience at this show. Demonstrations on welding, pin striping, leathercraft, blacksmithing and other skills intend to inform and excite the hidden talents and desires of attendees. “Our objective is to give womxn riders a platform to showcase their work, while also providing resources for them to learn new skills.”

Enter to Win

If the past is any indication, the monster raffle will be a highlight of the day. Grab some tickets, then come home with anything from a Coleman Mini-bike to Dainese leather. That includes tools from Craftsman, Gerber and Leatherman, helmets from Bell, AGV, and Biltwell. Some lucky winner will get a custom painted tank or helmet. While you wait for your number to be drawn, take in the curated custom motorcycle show, art gallery, and presentations.


Shop Till You Rock

The 8th incarnation of the Women’s Motorcycle Show is the first to feature vendors, with a big variety of moto merchandise. RevZilla will be there, as will Russ Brown and She Wolf Moto Co. Shop for new gear and interact with the displays from over a dozen companies.
As the daylight fades, the live music will start. Featured talent includes multi-genre “Plastic Culture” and a band that traces their roots to punk rock, “Tarah Who?”

Arden’s first motorcycle was a Yamaha Enduro, obtained while in high school. It set the stage for decades of off-pavement exploration on dual-sports and adventure bikes. Camping in the middle of nowhere became his favorite pursuit. As a former whitewater river guide and National Park Service seasonal employee, Arden believes in wilderness, wildlife, and being kind to the earth. A self-taught writer who barely passed English classes, he has contributed adventure stories and tested motorcycles and accessories for Rider Magazine and other outlets for nearly 30 years. In that time, he’s worn out two KLR 650s and is currently following the road to the middle of nowhere on his Ténéré 700 and an aging but reliable DR-Z 400S.
