2018 Convention Info

We are pleased to announce that the 2018 Motor Maid Convention Facebook page is up and running! 


Members who are on Facebook may now access the page (2018 Motor Maid Convention) and request to join.  After successfully answering three questions, their request will be pending until an Alabama moderator adds them to the group.


Not on Facebook?  No worries!  Information will also be posted in The Advisory as well as on our Convention website, which will launch at a later date.


FYI, Convention registration and hotel reservations will open at a date TBD in 2018 and will once again be handled efficiently by our colleagues at DavisTrapp. 


For now, however, enjoy the tips and insights that will be made available to you by the Alabama gals.  We hope you’ll plan to arrive early, and linger after Convention has ended; Alabama has a lot to share with YOU!



Check out the Convention page under the members tab for some great deals on Motor Maid post cards and note cards.

Welcome to Motor Maids!

To get a feel for the importance of tradition and history you need to look back in time at some of the challenges ladies before us had to overcome.

In 1916, just before the US entered WWI, sisters Augusta (Gussie, age 24) and Adeline (Addie, age 22) Van Buren wanted to prove women could serve as military dispatchers.  They rode 5,500 miles in 60 days on motorcycles equipped with gas headlights.  Crossing the continental US each on their own bike, wearing military style leggings and leather riding breeches they were arrested numerous times, not for speeding but for wearing men’s clothes.

In 1937 Sally Robinson is an 88 pound, 4’11” tall 27 year old resident of Washington that has been riding since 1928 and wanted to get her motorcycle license.  After taking the written test twice with scores of 80 and 92, she must bring her lawyer in order to get the opportunity to take the riding portion.  Upon completion the examiner announced “Lady, you handle it as well as any man could” but because he had not seen her kick it over, he would not give her the permit.  An article written in the Washington post went on to say that Miss Robinson was embarrassed to admit that she had “cussed him out” but left with her permit in hand.

The year is 1940.  After an extensive search, Linda Dugeau and Dot Robinson compiled a list of 51 female riders that would make up the Motor Maids Charter membership.  In 1941 the American Motorcycle Association issues Charter #509 to the club.

Today, 76 years later, the Motor Maids, are one of the oldest continuously operated Women’s Motorcycling Organization in North America.  Joining the Motor Maids will enlarge the 1,300+ membership that is a diverse group with a passion for riding, promoting safe riding habits and showing the world a positive image of ladies on motorcycles.

Here is the link to a New Membership Packet which includes Membership Application, Liability Waiver Form and our Constitution and By-Laws (Membership votes on & follows these By-Laws.  Be sure to read EVERYTHING.  All FORMS MUST BE completed and mailed-in to join).  Check out our National Officers and your District Director on the Contact Us tab.  We look forward to getting to know you.
