..... (not the monster though as its a chicks bike)
I read this quote from Stabby on a different thread and it prompted the question.... Chick Bike, what exactly is a "Chick Bike"
1) A bike that only a "chick" would ride?
2) A bike that is ridden mostly by "chicks"?
3) A bike with higher than normal estrogen levels?
4) A bike that would be better if painted pink?
5) A bike that most male riders consider... Delicate?, Dainty?, Feminine?
I'm on the fence about how I should feel regarding the designation "chick bike". Is there some underlying, emasculative, or less than desirable aspect to a bike that makes is less appealing to men?
Should I be insulted?
It's most likely just a stereotypical delineator between the average "real man's bike" and what most women prefer to ride. Although, that being said... most of the women I see riding are on the BACK of the bike. So, is a "chick bike" one with a comfy rear seat??
I don't ride on the back...I have my own bike...
I own a 2008 675 Special Edition... so, does that make the Special Edition a Chick Bike, or am I, like Kels and Paws (to name a few) just a rare breed of woman who can handle a "Man's Bike".
Let's face it, the world of motorcycling is dominated by men (which is perfect with me). And I have often heard men use the term "chick bike", so, what exactly makes a bike a chick bike? Just curious....
