Fraser Motorcycles will next month launch Heels and Wheels — a workshop offering a forum for education, networking and mentorship to women of all ages and levels of riding experience.
The workshops aim to empower female bike enthusiasts by providing a forum to discuss all things motorcycle and benefit from the experience of like-minded women. The evenings are designed for each level of rider, from beginners to seasoned pros.
“Activities will include basic motorcycle maintenance, how to customise your motorcycle’s to suit you and choosing proper riding gear,” said Fraser Motorcycles retail marketing manager, Sheree Gover. “Women riders already living their motorcycle dreams will also share their experiences and be available to answer questions.”
