Statement: "The whole motivation for this club is to get sport bike riding to women in a club setting. When I bought my bike in April of 2002, I found that there were no 'Women Sportbike' clubs or groups to ride with. So, what does a girl do??? I created a club. Tthe response has been great. I want to make it easier to meet other women with the same interest for motorcycling. Plan your next ride with us Throttle Jockettes...just the girls! Let's Ride!"
