Sex on Wheels - Motorcycle Eroticism
Thursday, November 5, 2009
Maybe I’m a simple creature, but it doesn’t take carbon fiber or titanium to ignite my prurient interests. Sex appeal and motorcycles go hand-in-hand. Plenty of bikes have it, and plenty don’t, but determining which is which boils down to that old saying about “whatever floats your boat.” Ducatisti have it easy with bikes like the 1198
. Suzuki V-strom
and Kawasaki’s KLR650
owners… not so much. In general street bikes seem to have an easier time turning the temps up in the looks department, but dirt bikes will always have a slight advantage in one area.
In the roosting realm, there’s nothing that gets the juices flowing like a fresh set of knobbies – especially on black rims. It gets me every time, even though I’ve put on tons of tires, it’s still freakin’ awesome to see your bike with a new set of shoes. If you ride dirt and slapping on fresh meats doesn’t get you a bit ramped up then you’re in the wrong sport.
I just finished installing a set of Dunlop’s Geomax MX51
tires on the 2010 Husqvarna TE310
and it completely changed the bike’s attitude from a street-legal dual sport to full-blown enduro. I’ll tell you what, Saturday can’t get here fast enough!
