NORTH CAROLINA – JULY 9, 2021 – Women’s Motorcycle Tours welcomes Harley-Davidson as a major partner on the Suffragists Centennial Motorcycle Ride (SCMR2021). Harley-Davidson will be supporting the event with dealership events along the way, hosting the Centennial Riders at the 81st Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, offering a unique museum experience and party in Milwaukee, and offering long-distance, rolling demo rides all the way from Milwaukee to Arlington, Virginia. Alisa Clickenger will also be riding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle in the cross-country event.
“Harley-Davidson has a very long history of supporting women motorcycle riders. Beginning with Effie and Avis Hotchkiss, the first two women to ride across the USA in a motorcycle side-car rig in 1915,” said Alisa Clickenger, Women’s Motorcycle Tours Founder and Centennial Ride Event Producer. “Harley-Davidson has been a significant contributor to the growing number of women riders, and I am honored to be working in partnership with them on this ride and the conference.”
“So many female riders throughout motorcycling history have been associated with the Harley-Davidson brand. Vivian Bales, the first motorcycle cover girl, long-distance motorcycle rider, and stunt rider in the 1920s and 1930s was a Harley-Davidson rider, as was Dot Robinson, the founder of the Motor Maids. Bessie Stringfield, the first African-American woman to complete a solo cross-country ride, also rode a Harley-Davidson, and it’s delightful that we’ll be carrying on her tradition of long-distance motorcycle riding. My Centennial motorcycle events are always at the intersection of historical remembrance and modern celebration, and Harley-Davidson is the perfect partner for us to expand the narrative of bold and audacious women who paved the way for our modern women and our right to vote,” said Clickenger.
