How To Tell if A Biker Likes You

How To Tell if A Biker Likes You (7 Sure Signs)!

How do you tell if a biker likes you?

It’s actually pretty easy to figure out – if you know what to look for.

If you’ve met a man with a motorcycle, things are about to get very interesting.

Now, of course you already know the obvious signs that a guy clearly likes you.
There’ll be a little flirting, and some sparks of chemistry.

These are definitely promising clues.

But bikers are not like other guys.
They have their own way of doing things.

So sure, you should look out for all the usual signs of romantic interest.
But how can you tell for sure if a biker likes you?

If you’ve never dated a biker, there are a few tell-tale signs that he’s interested in you.

It’s easy to tell if a biker likes you.
He’ll ask you to go riding with him for a start, and probably also invite you to learn more about motorcycle culture.
So if you’re ready for a new adventure, the sound of that motorcycle engine revving could also be the sound of a romantic opportunity knocking.

Let’s talk about what to look out for in more detail…

How to Tell if a Biker Likes You
7 Sure Signs He’s Interested

 1.  He asks you to go riding with him

If a biker likes you, he’ll invite you into his world.
And yep, this always involves riding motorcycles.

But bikers don’t invite just anyone to climb onto the back seat of their motorcycle.

Asking you to ride with him is a significant invitation.
It means he wants to get to know you better – and to see if you’re open to sharing one of his main passions.

2.  He lends you full motorcycle safety gear

If motorcycles are new to you, of course you won’t have a full set of motorcycle safety gear hanging in your wardrobe, just waiting for an outing.

He’ll know that.
And he’ll make an effort to help keep you as safe as possible.

So if a biker is really interested in you, he’ll be ready to lend you some key pieces of motorcycle gear.

When he shows up for your riding date with a spare helmet and motorcycle gloves, that’s a good sign.
And if he brings a leather jacket for you too, that’s even better.

Here’s a quick guide to the kind of gear you’ll need – including some things you probably already own.

3.  He helps you with the basics of passenger riding

Unless you’ve had some experience with motorcycles, naturally you’ll need a little guidance about how to ride on the back of a motorcycle.

And if a biker is interested in you, he’ll take the time to give you some gentle pointers.

You can’t be expected to know how to get on and off the motorcycle if you’ve never done it before.
So listen while he shows you (and it’s OK to practice in the driveway before you head out).

Ask him if there’s anything else you should know, and follow his advice.

And in the meantime, here’s some insider advice on a few choice topics for motorcycle passengers:

4.  He may ride a little too fast

If he opens up the throttle a little too much, he’s probably not trying to scare you.

(Well, hopefully not! If he is, you might want to keep looking for a better biker match.)

He may simply be trying to impress you.
Going fast is not scary for him – it’s part of the thrill of the ride.

But a fast ride might be scary for you.
And if you’re not comfortable with it, you need to tell him to slow down.

Tap him on the shoulder and speak up right away.
Believe me, you won’t be the first woman to do this.

You may as well establish from the beginning that you’re not a doormat.

Just tell him you need some time to get used to the feeling of rushing through the world on a powerful metal beast.

That’s perfectly reasonable.

He should know that.
And he won’t want to scare you away.
So if you want him to slow down, speak up.

5.  He may invite you to a motorcycle event

Depending on where you live, there may be a motorcycle show happening in your city.

These can range from small events hosted by a bike shop to celebrate the release of the latest motorcycle model, to a bigger venue showcasing hundreds of motorcycles over a whole weekend.

If a biker is interested in you, he may take you along to one of these motorcycle events.
He’ll be going anyway, and he’ll be curious to see whether you might enjoy it too.

This is a great chance to dip your toe into motorcycle culture with zero risk.
He’s not asking you to come to the Hells Angels clubhouse in a miniskirt and see what happens.

A motorcycle show is actually a pretty wholesome setting, and a low pressure way to take a tour through the world of bike culture.

A bike show is a public event with a relaxed vibe.
There’ll be hundreds or even thousands of other motorcycle enthusiasts there.

These events are usually really friendly and laid back.
Everyone is smiling, and excited to see lots of beautiful machines under one roof.

Check it out, and see if you find it fun.

6.  He might ask if you’re interested in motorcycles

The topic will be top of mind for him, believe me.

If a biker is interested in you, he’ll need to know whether you’re at least open to finding out more about motorcycles.

Because here’s the thing.
It’s near impossible to have any kind of relationship with a biker if you hate motorcycles.

Now, you don’t have to read up on the history of motorcycles, or pretend to know more than you do.
If you know nothing about bikes, it’s fine to admit that.
But the key is to also say that you’d like to learn more.

Watch him smile, and buy you another coffee.

And here are some tips on how to hold a whole conversation about motorcycles, even when you know nothing about them.

7.  He might introduce you to his biker friends

If a biker is interested in you, he’ll want to see if you get along with his friends.
That happens with normal guys too, of course.

But a biker will know other bikers.
Many of his friends will ride motorcycles too.

Don’t panic.
You’re not trying out to join a bike gang here.

This is just a group of people united by their love of riding motorcycles.

Most bikers are pleased to meet new people to go riding with.
That just means more like-minded people who can share the adventure.

And meeting his biker friends can be useful for you, too.
You can see what kind of people he hangs out with, and get a feel for whether you might like them too.

So these are the top 7 ways to tell if a biker likes you

It’s not rocket science.

But it IS a little different from starting a relationship with a normal guy.
Bikers have a passion for motorcycles that’s so strong it affects many other parts of their lives.

That includes their relationships.

This doesn’t mean you have to develop an obsession with motorcycles yourself.
You just have to be OK with motorcycles being a big part of your new man’s life.

Personally, I think it’s worth making the adjustment.

Because dating a biker can change your life.
It can make you more open to having adventures.
It can show you that you’re braver and, yes, even a little wilder than you ever thought.

It can mean road trips to new places, Saturday rides through the sunshine, and a sense of freedom and joy that only motorcycles offer.

So if this biker likes you, that’s great.
And if you like him back, and think that motorcycles could be a fun thing to share, then get ready.

A new adventure is about to unfold for you both…
