 You see a lot of people that choose this mode of travel.  I have never been on one even sitting still. The fellow on the fallowing one is taking some kind of pet far a ride. Do not recall it being real tho.

I cannot imagine riding one of them much less with my Jack on the back. I know I would wreck the thing.

LOL- My hubby and I used to ride on his motorcycle before we had kids! xo Diana

I don't think they are very safe!

would be fun to ride (though I'd prefer the sleek models vs the "hog" motorcycles), but I'd be too scared to ride one.

Hubby has wanted a motorcycle lately then he said if I'd ride with him he'd spend the $ for two Vespas! I said yes, mostly because I knew he'd never do it. 28 yrs of marriage taught me a bit of man management!

LOL, I hope that buffalo isn't real!!

I rode on a motorcycle once as a teenager, never again! Some of my kids have had them (as adults, not while they lived under my roof)...they all gave them up though and I am glad.

I like to take photos of big bikes too. Sorry I have been away.

I've never really trusted motorcycles but some of them are pretty nice looking. Bikers do a Christmas ride here with teddy bears on the bikes with them for the needy. That impresses me.

I have been a lady rider for 12 years and have loved every single moment of riding my own motorcycle! It is a wonderful way to spend a weekend, exploring my home state, because it gives me a chance to see and appreciate details I might otherwise miss - like the way a valley comes into view is you come around a curve and begin to descend from the top of a hill... or the way the sun comes through the corn in August... or the sound that prairie grass makes as it whishes around you. Truly a beautiful way to travel! I actually wrote an e-book for women who want to learn to ride their own bikes, and of course I LOVE to photograph bikes! I am a dedicated "biker" and believe that the primary danger comes not from myself being on the bike, but rather from distracted drivers who do not see me nor, apparently, even TRY to see me because they believe they take precedence on the road. It is a risk I believe worth taking. And, I do have several friends who carry their real pets on their bikes - there are special carriers that are used to safely allow the pet to ride without being able to jump off the machine. Of course, in an accident the pet will likely be injured as well as the rider, but the same is true in cars where pets usually ride without restraint. My name on this comment is linked to a post on my motorcycle blog that takes you along on a ride I took last summer with my lady-rider's group to the American Gothic House in Eldon, Iowa. We had a lot of fun and saw some beautiful Iowa scenery and historic treasures!
