There are many women coming into biking later in life. Unfortunately, my wife is not enjoying riding and has anxiety. Moreover, two up riding is not her thing and mine either. She gave it a go and that's what counts.
Notwithstanding, 14% of all new bikes sold were to women. That's a big number.
My cousin rides a 1200 Sportster custom and she was very impressed about the brakes on my Ducati especially relative to her Harley. However, she loves her Harley and that's whats important. I consider myself very lucky to have two bikes that offset each other. We try to achieve the same with cars as we drive a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. The slower you drive, the more fun that gets. My wife enjoys the Jeep far more than the bike especially with the top down.

I have photos in my forum's garage here if you're interested in viewing:

Yours is a great story in development. Enjoy some demos and keep us posted.
