WA Women Motorcycle Riders (WAWMR) Inc.
WAWMR, pronounced warmer, is a community organisation run by female riders for female riders.
The brainchild of prominent and passionate members of the WA motorcycling community, WAWMR was started in 2007 in an informal capacity, as an organised Facebook group in 2010 and finally Incorporated in 2013.
They are governed by an executive board, a general committee and paying members.WAWMR offers a safe, friendly and non-intimidating atmosphere where women can work on their road craft, improve their riding skills, boosting not only their confidence on the road, but their overall self-confidence.
Riders of all levels and riding styles are welcomed. The goal is to bring together, all women, with a passion for riding.
WAWMR is committed to nurturing the female riding community and promoting the sport for women… by:
- Build and develop a community to foster support for women motorcycle riders throughout all of Western Australia
- Promote welfare and interests within the WAWMR community
- Develop projects aimed at improving the WAWMR community
- Foster cooperation between like-minded community groups
- Provide recreational and social interaction
- Raise funds to support the WAWMR community
As opposed to the general Facebook-type group, you’ll need to be a financial member to access all the benefits that WAWMR offers, but you are still able to join in with them socially, to start with.
A terrific bunch of women with a variety of ages and general demographics… all very empowering and encouraging of each other.
I would put this group up on the top of my list as a welcoming, optimistic, fun, encouraging and supportive group.
New riders can feel a bit lost when they approach their first motorcycle.
Strange terminology, lots of weird new things to learn and everybody telling you to be careful, can all be quite intimidating, but the amazing WAWMR crew have put together some terrific support notes from a collation of their member’s experience and skill sets, that is helpful for new riders.
One of the best ways to see if you like what the group is about, is to pop along to one of their week-night dinner rides or introduce yourself and see if you can find a learner’s shadow in your area, or best of all… attend the fun packed Balingup Biker Babe Muster, long weekend, held annually since 2017.
2021 Biker Babes Muster – Balingup, WA
WAWMR would like to extend an invitation to women riders throughout Australia and New Zealand to join them on their fun packed Biker Babe Muster weekend.
I attended the first Biker Babe Muster and it was the start to some amazing friendships formed, with ladies that are life-long friends.
They don’t give a hoot about what bike you ride, just that you ride… whatever level of riding you’re at, there is something for you… so feel free to bring your Sports bike, Adventure bike, Cruiser or Café Racer; just BE THERE!The roads in the area to ride with your newfound friends are as challenging or sedate as you wish, with plenty of suggested routes, offered up on pre-prepared mud-maps… no matter what type of routes you choose, the scenery around Balingup, in the south-west of Western Australia is simply spectacular… and the hospitality pretty spesh also.
A real fun long weekend of friendship and loads of laughs – come and meet some new Best Friends! It’s a camp out, but if you don’t want to tent it, the other option is an indoor space inside the Recreation Centre, where the event is based.
