Siracusa, who has worked within the motorcycling industry for over 10 years said she is looking forward to introducing more women to motorcycling.

“I am excited to be coming to the Sydney Motorcycle Show to host the ‘Women in Motorcycling’ sessions,” Siracusa said.

“These sessions will include candid chats with some inspirational and interesting women currently in motorcycling.

“We will be talking about how they got into motorcycling, the rides they enjoy, the advice they can give women who are considering getting into motorcycling as well as some more personal stories about their moto adventures.

“It should be a great couple of days and I’m looking forward to meeting current and future motorcycle enthusiasts, women and men alike,” Siracusa added.

Model Lauren Vickers has been riding motorcycles for 12 years and was recently announced as the first female ambassador for Ducati.

“The motorcycle industry has become such a big part of my life and work over the years so I am excited to be able to share my experiences with visitors to the Sydney Motorcycle Show,” Vickers said.

“I love getting out on the road to clear my head or beat the traffic, no matter whether I’m on a sports bike or cruiser. No other form of transport makes me want to take the long way home! Sydney is such a fantastic city to ride in year-round because of our beautiful surrounds and weather.

“I look forward to connecting with fellow riders, sharing my experiences from my last 12 years as a rider, handing on any useful advice for beginners and having a good chat with visitors to the show,” Vickers added.
