GoPro made a fortune, not solely on the popularity of the company’s product, but because most GoPro cameras spend as much time bouncing along behind a motorcycle as they do attached to one. Kind of a new take on planned obsolescence. This, of course, applies to all models of action cameras and not just GoPro. Watching circus clown editor, Troy Siahaan, one-handedly juggle a GoPro after it detached from the fuel tank of the R1 he was riding was both sad and entertaining. Years later he still believes it lingers somewhere on the 405 freeway.

    We’re not all going to Sturgis. How many times does a woman approach you because of the bike? (My answer is three.) Now how man times do guys approach you because of the bike? I can’t even walk around downtown Eureka Springs without guys talking at my back as I walk the other way. If there’s one thing that a motorcycle is, it’s a guy magnet. We can all pretend how sexy the bike makes us, but on the end, just like muscle cars, these things are guy magnets. Bring this up the next time you are at a motorcycle friendly establishment. If you can pull it off without getting hit, then you are guaranteed to get a laugh. I always do.

    This was obviously written by someone that’s never ridden a motorcycle before.

    You’re kidding, right? Stereotyping women as loving to be half-naked on someone else’s motorcycle, getting their photo taken…. Jeez, let’s get rid of all the work we women have done for the past century or so and go right back to being fantasies.

    Some of us women wear the proper gear while riding our own motorcycles.

    Incredibly disappointing.

    Obviously DCBC doesn’t look like the girl in the photo.
