You know the drill. Every now and then, while riding, a part of your bike suddenly decides it needs some attention and you have to stop for a little roadside repair. Tool rolls are unfolded and you try to fix the thing with the sparse resources at hand. In the twinkling of an eye you are surrounded by your mates who, with a cigarette dangling in their mouth and hands buried deep in their pockets, manage the whole thing by yelling more or less useful advises in your direction. After a quarter of an hour, the bike runs again, only one of the gang has greasy fingers but all the others are proud of a job well done.
Now I can imagine that as a Moto-Girl you don’t have to wait for a roadside repair to be showered with advises from male motorcycle riders. They probably all know better and have to prove it to the lady.
I can’t imagine this being the reason for Berlin–based, female MC named the Curves to organize a Women-Only event from 29th to 31st July but I guess no one is going to miss the know-it-all guys on those days.
Irene, Cäthe und Jana, from The Curves explain: By setting up an event like this we want to tip the scales in Europe and make other women feel comfortable in this male dominated domain. We hope to attract female motorcycle aficionados from all over Europe and spend a weekend themed: unite-rally-race-party-dance-camp-repeat.
So every woman whose heart pounds the throb of an engine is invited to participate at the Petrolettes Event in Berlin-Spandau’s Motor World Manufaktur from 29th to 31st of July 2016. There will be live-gigs ranging from Punk to Rock n’ Roll, movie screenings, sales-booths selling fashion and parts, tattoo stalls and motorcycle sprints.
Motorladys from the US, Great Britain and Denmark have already confirmed their participation and the Curves are happy to announce a soaring demand for tickets. They come at 25 € for the whole weekend.
So Moto-Girls from all over Europe, mark your calendars; on the last weekend of July the first edition of something big is going to happen and you sure don’t want to miss that, don’t you?
