Welcome to RevGirl, a blog featuring independent reviews and updates written by, well, a woman who rides. Not the usual tech-spec rundown, info posted on RevGirl focuses on the visceral reaction and overall impression of gear, bikes, events, and professional women competitor’s results. It’s how we girls roll. Every now and then I’ll throw up an op-ed on something industry-related…a sort of, pro’s & con’s, should-you or shouldn’t-you sort of thing, or an interview with someone who’s made an impact in the world of women in powersports (and I’m always open to suggestions).
If you’re a manufacturer or vendor who’d like a product review written for this site, please contact me at the e-mail address below. Reviews are typically around 500 words, include product photos and vendor links, are fully searchable by keyword (i.e., the name of your product or company), and stay posted forever. In order to keep an independent perspective, I do not charge a fee for my reviews. If your stuff is something that can’t be shipped (a bike, a class, or a tour or something), alternate arrangements can be made. No guarantees; I am a slave to honesty. Please familiarize yourself with some of my gear and product reviews so you get a sense of my writing style.
As far as my stats, I’ve been riding for about 5 years and currently ride a Ducati 748. And though I have a full-time professional career (think white coat and prescription pad), my passion is riding. Why the blog? Because I enjoy it. And because there’s a need for it. As long as I’ve been riding, women have been the fastest growing consumer demographic in the motorcycle industry, yet we still have a hard time finding products that fit, equipment that performs, and gear that meets our needs. There are women athletes and racers out there competing head-to-head with men who are older, stronger, more-experienced, and way better-funded, and the media is missing it! RevGirl (formerly Sportbikechic) exists to disseminate real-world information about motorcycles and industry-related gear through the eyes of a fellow female rider. I love to ride. I love to write. It’s a good fit.
