I am not sure why girls on bikes are that much of an interest

it's like beer and pretzels, or chocolate and peanut butter, or mushrooms and Kurosawa films... each entertaining on their own, but sometimes better together.

mmhh - not convinced to honest... ::)

You can drink while eating but you will probably never have (good) sex while riding. Or ride (good) while having sex... Also beer isn't half as attractive to me as women or bikes. For me, it is like putting a bike on a yacht f.e. Would spoil the picture... I can also not understand why on carshows, the manufacturers de-value their cars by putting attractive Ladies in front of them. Either the car sells itself or they did something wrong during the design phase...  ;)

If I go on a car show, I go there to see cars. If I want to see women only rudimentary covered by fabric, I would go into a striptease bar. I could have beer while looking at the girls but would never think of putting a beer close to a pic of a nice lady. It would just not fit together and de-values (in that case bikes and girls) both of them.

First rule with advertiising is to get peoples attention - need I say any more?
Especially if only rudimentary covered by fabric.

Maybe they should be covered in beer?

If I had one of Yogi's yachts, filling it with scantily clad women would be my first act  8)

For those that are worried about the non-italian content, No. 3 has a Grimeca front hub... ;D

Staying with tight bunnies though! Awesome.  (bigthumb)

Lothar,

Pat,

You come up with the scantily clad women and I'll come up with a three day weekend cruising up the NSW coast from Sydney with perfect weather on an Outer Reef 63.  Even throw in all the fishing gear - a mate of ours caught a 33kg Mahi Mahi (Dolphin fish) the other day off Sydney.

Sure it does, but if it takes a sexy girl to sell a bike, what does that tell about the bike?

De-valuing - just as I said...  ;)

I'd rather have some eye candy telling me how much I need something than a boring old fart explaining how good a product is. ;D

The decision remains mine...

I must bring a picture where the bike is a Laverda and a little naughty girl.

Has to be No 4 for me. The 'bike backdrop' is shite, but the legs, ass and waist are pure perfection.
History, eh! It's just one bloody thing after another.
