AMA also gets much credit, for saying outlaw bikers are only 1% of the motorcycling population.
Oh, by the way, here is another great statistic: Women now make up 9% of motorcycle riders!
The only other stat of interest is that for every story I tell, somewhere, somebody disagrees with something Iíve said and takes offense.
For example, my family has a term for it when a guy rides as a passenger. They call it riding bitch. If I use terms like that and they offend your sensibilities, please realize I hang with a different kind of crowd than you do. Yes, I know it is not politically correct, and it probably sends a bad message. I agree, there is nothing wrong with riding 2-up, queen, as a passenger. I still think itís amusing to see my brothers picking on each other. That is what they do best. So, if youíre overly PC, please avoid any of our get togethers at all cost because it tends to get much, much worse. You and the horse you rode in on wouldnít last 5 minutes, bitch.
The editor of BIKERS USA was the founder of the BIKERS category in the Open Directory Project in 1999. Until then, all bikers sites were categorized under recreation/motorcycles. As you know, the bikers lifestyle is much more about our societal subculture than it is about recreation, with the exception of racing and elbow curls. Another reality is that most bikers cannot afford the new custom chrome choppers that have been so heavily popularized. We appreciate looking, but it doesnít have much to do with who most of us are.
