5. Baggage


From tank bags to tailpacks, camping gear to homework, if it’s been transported on a motorcycle at one time or another it’s also fallen off a motorcycle. When magnetized tank bags were first making the scene some were insufficiently powerful enough to secure the tank bag at freeway speeds. I learned this the hard way when one blew off my CBR600F2 on the way to Laguna Seca.

      Motorcycle.com publishes a new Top-10 list every Thursday of every week. Hint: They are part of the editorial calendar.

  • 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.

    With these lame articles the main thing that will fall off is your readership.
