I love motorbikes
. I never used to though, until I took a week long riding/safety course with a couple of buddies
from work. After that I couldn't get enough of motorbikes; so much so, that I bought a new one a couple of months ago. Most guys like bikes too for the speed
that a motorbike offers. Those guys that don't like bikes probably haven't had a bike or really haven't given it a chance. Women
, on the other hand, seem to be more practical and dislike bikes due to safety considerations
. However, there is something about bikes that appeals to women, despite my previous statement. It's hard to explain
Let me set the scene a bit; I'm not Mr. Model. I mean, I'm not unattractive, but I'm really nothing special. I went camping this past August long weekend with some guys from my hockey team, like I have every year for the past 4 years. This year however, I got someone else to take my gear, and I rode my bike the four hours to the camping location.
I brought my spare helmet along because one of my team members was bringing his girlfriend and she had said she would like a ride. I thought that was an isolated incident, but that was not to be the case. I hadn't been at the campground more than a few hours when some girl came up out of the blue and asked if "that was my motorbike?" When I said yes, she asked if I would take her for a ride. Okay, I had known this girl all of two minutes and she wanted me to take her for a ride. Of course, I agreed. And this happened several more times thoughout the weekend. And once I took my buddy's girlfriend for a ride and she told some other girl how much fun it was, she too wanted a ride.
It's weird, it seems that to women, bikes are dangerous, that is until they get up close to some guy on a bike and then all rules are out the window.
I don't understand the world sometimes...
