There you go, you'll learn something today. Aren't you glad you tuned in?

In a recent study performed by the University of Strathclyde Open link in a new window (UK) with male and female motorcycle riders from the USA, UK and Germany, they discovered some strange results. The study was run in order to find out if present day bikers are as Hollywood portrays us, ie, hard living, fun loving, raw and mavericks. You know, like Easy Rider or like Sonny Barger Open link in a new window...

But the study shows that more and more white-collar folks start riding motorcycle at a later stage in their lives. Often blue-collar workers ride because it's affordable, or as rebellion, but the BAMBIBorn-Again, Middle-Aged Biker generation ride because they missed out, and are now riding to catch up.

Male Bikers Prefer Women Over Motorcycles


76%
(ed: email received from university that the figure in the graph is wrong, not 66% but 76%) of male bikers prefer women over motorcycle. Does that mean that the remaining 34% are gay? Or are they just not that fanatic, that if given the choice, they'd opt for a woman rather than a bike. I guess it's a question of priorities..

But, no surprise here, if given an alternative choice, male/female motorcycle riders will prefer a motorcycle ride over (these figures are gender average) :

32%
Play with kids
29%
Christmas with the family
25%
A cozy fireplace
25%
Romantic sunset
24%
Newborn baby
22%
Beautiful old-timer
17%
Puppies
11%
Kittens

Just looking at the figures, I made an incredible discovery! Bikers prefer dogs over cats.

Strathclyde Study

Male versus Female Bikers


But enough about male bikers, what about female bikers (I knew you were going to ask me that)? Obviously these figures are going to go the other way, since we all know that female bikers aren't real bikers.... right?

WRONG
! In fact, they are more into motorcycles than male bikers.

Were 56% of male bikers preferred biking over playing with their kids, a shocking 88% of female bikers prefer riding motorcycles over playing with the kids.

We know that kids, specially teenagers can be pesky, so I can understand the result. But obviously when given a choice between riding and a new born baby, women will flock to the baby. Right?

WRONG
. While 21% of the men would choose the baby, (take a deep breath... hold it....) ZERO % of women surveyed preferred the baby option.

So that blows that myth out of the water. Women prefer riding than playing with kids, being with a newborn baby, probably even more than having sex....maybe.

When looking at all the choice together, 74% of men would choose riding, while a whooping 85% of women would choose riding.

Strathclyde Study

So.. aren't you glad you tuned in today? Learned something. It's better being a women, at least if you like riding a motorcycle...
