What is it that makes all of us motorcyclists suddenly become wildly gesticulating Italians when we talk about riding or our bikes? Watch racers in the pits trying to relay what a bike is doing by using body english. Go to your favorite motorcycling gathering spot and watch the various conversations ultimately evolve into miming the action of a bike. Since motorcycles live so completely in three dimensions and involve all the senses, I guess we have to resort to some form of acting when describing what the starring – but inanimate – character in all of our yarns did at various points in the plot.

    I enjoy these silly 10 lists but this one sets a new standard. Great job.

  • Alexander Pityuk

    I don’t know if it really fits here in this list, but i think it’s just too good to ignore it.

    • Evans Brasfield

      A similar one almost made it into the list. 🙂

    I’m not sure what exactly the bike in #5 is (2000-ish CR250 set up for asphalt?), but I REALLY want to swing a leg over it!

  • Ajit Menon

    Hey, #1 is my Meme!!! How cool, it started on my photo page Jkanter Photography and has over 75K views. Cool!

    • Evans Brasfield

      Cool! As I wrote, it is the one that inspired this whole top 10 list.
