Calling all lady riders!!! Please consider doing this event if at all possible!
I'm registered to do the ladies Aprilia Femmoto Trackday at VIR on August 9th (and staying for the AMA Lightning Nationals Superbike races that weekend).
Well, this is a two part post and first I wanted to let everyone know that I spoke with the coordinator (Wendy Hogg) and only about 30 women have registered so far! These are disappointing numbers!
While low numbers will enable those who like to book additional rides at no extra cost, unless they can get a better turnout they will probably not repeat this again next year.
PLEASE let every women rider you know (even cruiser riders may be interested in trying a sportbike) about this affair and hopefully we can get a few more people to register.
Second, who so far has registered to go? It will be nice to put faces to names and to meet some of you gals!
It ONLY costs $55.00 and you are guaranteed 3 demo rides on your choice (of 3 different bikes) of the Mille Superbike, Falco, Futura and CapoNord. You may book additional rides (subject to availability of bikes) at no extra cost. AND if you are like me and haven't purchased leathers yet you DO NOT need them, just appropriate gear (ie helmet, jacket, gloves, jeans and boots). What's not to like?
The following is the email Wendy sent me when I asked her for the websites where you can register because another NOVA rider wanted to go.
Below are the websites for the Femmoto registration form. I really appreciate you taking the time to spread the word. I really want a good turn out so we can ensure that it happens again on a bigger scale.
