Default Re: What makes a motorcycle a ''Chick's bike''?

Oddly enough, I can kick over any Commando or ironhead Sporty easily.



What's so hard about that? Every bike I know of, just a gentle "push" with your toe and over she goes............ ;^D



(not that I'd actually DO something like that, having been the victim of this myself by @$$hole "Choppaheads" who thought it was funny as hell to see "that rice bike" in a ditch)

You gotta get yerself one O' those "keyboard condom" thingies, dude. They're on ALL the keyboards here at work (to keep dust out, in our case - what YOU keep out is YOUR bidness).

That's easy - let her have the Jeep, then get yerself the Miata you want with the Mazdaspeed turbo kit, sink a few thousand more into the engine so you're puttin' 400-500hp to the ground. Then you won't have to worry 'bout no "Chick's Car" syndrome. Unless it's painted pink or that sissy lavender, with chenile seatcovers and a tampon dispenser in the console.............

If there's a tampon/manhole-cover dispenser on the handlebars or in a fairing compartment, it's a Chick Bike.

Jeeps are the ultimate chick vehicle around here, can't remember the last time I saw a guy driving a Jeep. When I was in high school the coolest wheels were a Jeep CJ or a Toyota Land Cruiser (hey we lived in the sticks with lots of logging roads) It hit me about a year ago, EVERY and I mean EVERY Jeep Wrangler or whatever they're called now was driven by chicks. I'd be scared to drive one now as a guy cause I'm sure you'd get labelled as gay.

My theory is that the closer to the refinery you are, the more expensive gas is. I know it's counterintuitive, but gas is often cheaper in Eureka than it is in Richmond. And don't even get me started about Oregon. Cheaper AND they pump it for you. Unless you're a motorcylist, anyway. They're afraid of getting gas on an expensive paint job and getting their butt kicked, apparently. I'm not that fussy, but I do find a faint whiff of fear enjoyable. At my age (60) is doesn't happen much any more.

Get an old flat fender. My GPW has never been accused of being a chick car.

Default Jeep = Lesbian Wagon

Ask any lesbian you know of what the official car of lesbianism is, and you will find it is the Jeep.

I guess that is another thing lesbians and I have in common.

Ah....yeah. A "chick's bike" is one with a woman's name on the title maybe ? I taught my wife to ride on my srx-6, and now (one replacement clip-on later) she won't get on the thing. If she stalled it she couldn't get it started anyway. It is kind of funny though watching her stand at the top of the starter's stroke while it doesn't move. Low power, light weight, but apparently not a "chick's bike." Now that she's tried it, I can't get her off of my VFR. Maybe that's the "chick's bike?"
