Bikes And Babes

Bike Chick Banner
Some pairings seem preordained in any society. In America one of these pairings is beautiful women and motorcycles. Whether one describes it as bikes and babes, hawgs and hotties, or choppers and chicks, this combination is deeply ingrained in people’s consciousnesses.

Bikes & Babes – They Go Together

I’m really not sure at all if the near-ubiquitous combination of hotties and motorcycles is due to marketing campaigns that have propagated the imagery or if those marketing campaigns are due to an existent societal meme which paired beautiful women and bikes. The pairing has been around a long time though.

Of course the reasons and origins of the meme don’t really matter. What matters is that women and motorcycles are a natural pairing in America. it’s one of the reasons- though only one, albeit a fine one – that many of us prefer a bike over a cage.
