Of course, there are already plenty of cool things to look at on a bike.
You want to check out the motor, the exhaust system, the shocks, the bars…
There’s a lot going on.
And because I’ve been riding on the back of bikes for 25 years, I always take a second look at a motorcycle’s passenger seat, too.
There’s wonderful distraction everywhere.
But I have to say for me, motorcycle tanks are the Main Event.
They’re always the focal point of a bike.
They really reflect a bike’s identity, and unique style.
Maybe I should go see a therapist about my obsession with motorcycle tanks.
Come to think about it, talking about them for hours in group therapy would be a lot of fun.
But in the meantime, here’s a peek at some of my favorite motorcycle tanks.
For a start, it’s often uglier than a mule’s backside.
You won’t catch me wearing plastic clown pants in public.
(Or in private, actually!)
But ugliness is only part of the problem.
Motorcycle clothing for women is often super uncomfortable, as well!
It’s too tight here…
It’s too baggy there…
The fabric scratches around your neck.
The socks make your feet smell like a teenage boy’s gym bag.
It doesn’t have to be this way…
It really helps if you don’t see the motorcycle as The Enemy.
Because that’s the path to more arguments than you ever dreamed you could fit into an average week.
Bikers love their motorcycles with a fierce, burning passion.
That’s just the way it is.
The motorcycle is a non-negotiable presence in their lives.
Don’t believe me?
Just try any of these comments, and watch the sparks fly.
Some do, of course.
But other biker chicks are harder to spot.
Plenty of women are right into motorcycles, but you’d never know it at first glance.
That’s because it’s not about how many tattoos you have.
It’s not about how you look.
It’s all about how you think.
Biker chicks share a state of mind.
They don’t see motorcycles as a potential trigger for divorce.
Quite the opposite.
To biker chicks, motorcycles are just part of the family.
That’s why they say things like this…
