Ride on the back of a biker man’s motorcycle, and feel the wind blowing your face and hair. Many biker women think it is a funny exhilarating experience when single biker men invite them to ride as a passenger. But for some beginning female riders, they may feel like they are holding on for their life. The feeling of out of control is uncomfortable and even frightening. So for some beginning female bikers, they must learn how to have a safe and wonderful backseat riding. And for those veteran motorcycle riders, they must learn how to make their biker girl relaxed and enjoy a happy riding journey. Continue reading
Motorcycle riders has long been attractive to people around the world. The feeling of freedom, of independence and camaraderie that a simple motorcycle ride promotes is truly unique. While you value your independence, it’s nice to know that you’re sharing the ride with so many other single motorcycle riders, young and old, of every race, creed and color.
It really doesn’t matter the city or country; chances are you’ll find people to share love on motorcycles no matter where you happen to go. There are motorcycle clubs throughout the United States, Europe and South America certainly have their share of people interested in all motorcycle things.
If you’re worried about encountering people of the opposite sex in your search for relationship, you really shouldn’t be. The things that attract men to the biker lifestyle are pretty much universal for women as well. The love of a good bike, the passion for independence and friendship, and of course the lust for the open road will affect single biker women just as easily as it will affect single biker men. You can put your faith in the idea that the biker community is a lot larger, and a lot more varied than you might think.
If you think about it, there is something about a biker. Even without the leathers, the helmet or the roar of the throttle, a biker can be recognized by other bikers. Perhaps it is a look in the eye, or a certain swagger in their walk. Perhaps it is the faint odor of oil and grease that seems to follow them everywhere they go. It could also be attitude coupled with the friendly hand extended in greeting.
If you don’t fall in love with the mentality that riding a motorcycle can encourage, there are quite a few practical reasons to make a motorcycle a part of your life. One of the most practical is the overall cost to ride, and the fuel efficiency of a motorcycle versus a car. In many cases, a well-tuned bike can get nearly double, if not triple the fuel efficiency of many of the cars out there today. There are some bikes that are achieving somewhere between sixty and seventy miles per gallon, if not more. Think about it; with that kind of efficiency, chances are you can commute to work and from work during the week, go for a ride to do your errands in the evening, and still have enough gas in the tank to go for a day trip over the weekend.
Another reason why riding a motorcycle is a bit more practical than a car is the ability to park in just about any situation. Remember the last time you saw an SUV try to park on a crowded street? There are times that even a car has trouble in making the fit. However, for a motorcycle parking is a whole lot easier. In addition, many parking areas designate special parking spaces just for motorcycle riders.
Motorcycles are also much more versatile than their four wheeled counterparts. Let’s face it; cars are big, and relatively difficult to maneuver in less than ideal conditions. How many times have you seen a car stuck in a mile long traffic jam, while a smaller, more agile motorcycle was able to thread its way through the different lanes to get where the rider needed to go? While the practice isn’t legal in all areas, it can truly be a time saver when it can be used.
All motorcycle enthusiasts enjoy a culture and a lifestyle all their own. How that lifestyle is defined is different for each rider. For some, calling themselves a biker means that they have ridden for thousands of miles on their bike. Some claim the moniker of a biker because they simple cannot stand being away from the open air, or they get antsy when they are forced to exist within a metal box like a car or a truck.
Still others claim the biker lifestyle because they love to tinker with, and improve the various motorcycles that they come in contact with. Still others identify more with the act of attending and riding through various rallies. Of course, there are also those who see the biker lifestyle as being centered on riding and riding alone. For others, there is something almost sexual about being around the motorcycles. There is a type of primal power that can only be experienced on the back of a motorcycle, and it has a way of being very, very attractive. The bottom line is that if a person is a part of the biker culture, the motorcycle and all that comes with it is an integral part of their lives.
For most true motorcycle riders, any or all of these statements can apply to them and the way that they live their life. Riding a motorcycle is more than just a Sunday hobby, even if that is the only time that you get to ride. For many bikers, riding is a way to relieve stress, a way to enjoy the freedom that only an open road and a 100cc engine can provide. Bikers will always prefer to ride instead of taking another vehicle, whether it’s just to visit our friends, or head down to the local watering hole. If you think about it, even running to the store to pick up a few items for dinner is more enjoyable on the back of a bike. After all, that’s why backpacks and saddle bags were invented.
