Women's Riding Essentials, Perewitz Cycle Fab
On June 19, 2008 we conducted our first class of the series sponsored by Kryptonite! Jody Perewitz and I had the priviledge of speaking to several ladies, all with various experiences in motorcycling. Some have bikes, some have yet to ride. We shared our experiences with the ladies on getting started, safety tips, gear, bikes, and more. The best part of the class is that is was very interactive. I enjoyed hearing how each of them got interested in motorcycles and what their first experience was like.
Jody and I share a love of bikes, that much we have in common...but it is so cool to see the differences in our experiences. I even got a glimpse of the bike she is building for Sturgis. I am envious! The whole crew at Perewitz is one big family -- I loved being a part of it for the two days I was there. I hope the ladies enjoyed the event. More on the event>>

NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race Appearance!
On May 17, 2008 Nicole appeared with Team Kryptonite at Lowe's Motor Speedway. Kryptonite sponsored the motorcycle only parking at the track and coupled that with a booth with giveaways and 'yours truly' signing autographs for NASCAR fans (and hopefully some more motorcycle fans!).

American Motorcycle Dealer News
Iron Works Magazine
Kryptonite is launching a women's only riding essentials class taught by Team Kryptonite members Jody Perewitz and Nicole Hoffman. The two women will visit select shops sharing their extensive experience and knowledge withwomen riders who may be just starting out. Both women have years of experience riding and racing or building motorcycles. The series of classes will kick off in June at Perewitz Cycle Fabrications in Bridgewater, Massachusetts.
“Kryptonite knows from both published reports and our own experiences on the road, that more women are riding motorcycles than ever before,” said Karen Rizzo, Director of Marketing. “We also understand that these women may be new to riding and have questions or need some advice that they might not want to ask of the guys. We have a solution for that with our accomplished women riders, Jody and Nicole, who will share their expertise, tips and general information with these women.”
