With their expanded line for hot weather riding gear – REV’IT! Women’s Tornado Motorcycle Jacket cools so well, you’ll feel bare! In any climate, comfortable protective riding gear is key. The past few summers, global warming has shown us challenging, varying climates, and soaring temperatures. Sadly, far too many riders are opting to ride without gear as a solution.
Here’s a unique take on the vibrant street culture of
“Csajok a motoron” translated to English from Hungarian means “girls or chicks on motorcycles”. It’s an online news and community website and Hungary Women motorcycle club for women who ride motorcycles. It was introduced in June 2006 by founder Weber Aniko known as “NaNa who drives the community as rider, and chief editor.
NaNa’s background has solid roots not only as a motorcycle rider but in Hungary’s motorcycle industry. Her roles as former editor and journalist for the Hungarian biker and custom bike magazine “[Born to Be] Wild” (www.wild.hu) since 1995. She proceeded to become a Senior Editor while also contributing motorcycling articles for an on-line biker magazine called TotalBike.hu.
It was in 2003 when a young local female motorcyclist organized a women’s only motorcycle tour. NaNa decided to take part and it was this which started the beginnings of weekly meet-ups with the girls who initially took part in the tour. Unfortunately after some time the girls began to split into smaller groups. One group hosted riders with larger choppers and more experience; others with colourful sport bikes, others with scooters, and so forth. NaNa couldn’t argue with the others desires but wanted to create that common link again the one which had brought them all together. She felt if she created a forum where all biker girls were welcome it would provide the environment of unity. And that’s how Csajokamotoron.hu was born. It was near one year after building the website and forum she left the magazine, and put all her efforts for the biker girls of Hungary and its now near 6,000 members.
Men Weren’t Enthusiastic Over Hungary Women Motorcycle Club
NaNa says that initially male riders were not really enthusiastic about the club, nor the idea that so many women wanted to ride their own bikes and have their own community / website. Today 25% of the members of the community site CsamClub.hu are still males but the growth of women riders has helped the men realize that women riders represent no threat, are fun to be around, great to converse and of course, ride with. The club also has members from neighbouring countries around Hungary – Serbia, Slovakia, Romania, Austria but are mainly native language of Hungarian.
Within the news portal, NaNa writes about everything that could be interesting for the girls. Not yet available in English but Google’s translator makes it possible to be viewed in other languages. The community site CsamClub.hu, where members can talk about everything, write blogs, make their own galleries, and talk about motorcycle tours or rally’s, make friends, etc. does include an English version. This allows anyone to register and start a topic in any language.
NaNa believes there are many members who would be happy to meet women riders from other countries and besides the fact, like NaNa, many members speak English along with other European languages.
Do visit the Csajok a Motoron website and as NaNa encourages, make some new friends.
Also note that Hungary has a huge representation on International Female Ride Day every year.
