Wink Is your motorcycle Male or Female?

I've asked this question to others. This is my take....

From a female perspective, I'd probably say they are male.... You have to take care of them all the time. Give them maintenance - regularly!, constantly buy them new toys to keep them interested but the best thing is, they give you a great feeling between your legs!

My bike likes new toys. He's enjoyed the Autocom, the fuzeblok gives it a little more breathing room, the FusionX lights on front, helps him stay on the road.....there are LOTS of toys for my baby!!

I kinda thinks of mine as female.

Specifically, a hot Goth chic.

Not exactly everyone's taste and a little quirky. But when you get it wound up, what a ride!

Female for sure:



Not happy without expensive accessories



Twist her throttle too hard and she screams like a wild cat




Will carry only the finest luggage



Has a full fairing but acts like she’s naked



Nice body lines



Heats up a crotch in a couple of minutes

Yep, Female
High maintenance, constantly needing lotions and soaps to look their best, get more out of them with 'premium' drink, and the harder you ride them the more you smell burning rubber ... we could go on...

hmmm...

From your definition, it sounds more like my ex and therefore must be female.

As my pop said, "Just find someone you really hate and buy them a house." Never understood that line then - but sure do now.

"Great feeling between your legs?" Only after you wallpaper their kitchen, paint their bedroom for the ump-teenth time, install their new fangled toilet, change their carpet to match their paint color. Buy new furniture to match some silly table of theirs. Give them a massage when demanded (See if they ever return that favor! Ha!). Gawd, I could go on and on. Hell, I'd be happy in a tent with a dog. Now that's low maintenance.

Other posts are bloody accurate too. My bikes, therefore, must be female the more I think about it. Hell, they've already taken over the garage and kicked me out too. Next they'll be talking to some lawyer and it will be time for the tent and dog.

As they say, "Take a sidecar rig out and put your wife and dog into it and go 1000 miles. See which one still likes you at the end of the day with a smile."

Okay, I think I'm beginning to understand what this is all about :-)

Fortunately, I don't consider it to be male or female. I've never cared much for either one, so that means I may find the bike to be more satisfactory than either could be. Other bikes in the past have easily surpassed people, for dependability.

The bike is just a tool, used when convenient and put away when inconvenient. I have no emotional commitment to it at all. As long as it does the job I bought it for, I'll keep getting it out and using it. When it no longer does the job, I'll let it rust away or get rid of it if someone else wants it. It's just a more complicated tool than my soldering pencil or vacuum cleaner.

Right now, it's adequate, but could be better. Like any craftsman, I modify my tools so they do the job better. I doubt it will ever be completely satisfactory, but I expect it will be considerably improved before I give up trying to make it better. Maybe it'll even get good enough to keep it around for a few hundred thousand miles, like one of my previous bikes.

regards,
Joe

La Princessa....

Look at her in my avatar... she's CHAMPAGNE colored for God's sake! Gotta be a girl.

(fixing that soon...... I've found the color blends in to background to much during a recent trip to the keys..... not left turners but people pulling out in front of me from the right.... I figured it out when I was driving here one day and saw a champagne colored car and noticed how it blended in with faded asphalt.)

Very Bad in fact, but I like the way you think!
