The adventurous spirit, the sexy rugged look, the charming sense of constant spontaneity – we all know about the obvious benefits of dating a motorcycle rider. But if you go ahead and ask those who have actually dated a biker, you’ll learn about a few extra perks!
In this article we’ll talk about the hidden benefits of dating a biker – the ones that aren’t so obvious, but, man, do they make a change.
1) Your Girlfriends WILL Be Jealous (even just a little bit)
Yes, you read that right. When a guy owns a motorcycle it’s like instant attraction points added: bikers are perceived as rebellious, sexy, powerful, but at the same time they’re socially acceptable and they’re very, very desirable as such. In fact, Match.com has done a survey that found out a very interesting fact: the word “motorcycle” was the second most frequently used search term by women who search through dating profiles! So you can be sure your girlfriends are going to be thinking: “My, my, what a man she’s got”. Enjoy it.
2) Motorcycle Style, Here We Come!
Oh, the leather and chains! At some point, everyone has a fantasy about looking like a biker. The sexy jackets, the tight jeans or leather pants, the killer black leather boots and oh, those black shades! This is the classic uniform of awesomeness everyone recognizes at once.
But if you don’t ride a bike, it might be a little silly to explain why in the world you’re wearing a hip-length leather moto jacket over a small tank top and why exactly you’re wearing those knee-long booths in the middle of the summer.
Once you get your biker boy – voila! Hello sexy vixen, now you can go ahead and buy those $500 black leather pants you always wanted to wear. Now is the time to rock them.
3) Now You Don’t Have to Do Your Hair All the Time
The very idea of “feeling the wind in your hair” while on a motorcycle might sound sexy, but if you actually let your hair fly while going for a ride with your biker, you’ll end up with a tangled mess that smells like exhaust fumes.
A simple ponytail will do. In case your biker boy protests, all you need to do is point back to the tangled bunch of helmet hair on his head. He’ll get the picture.
4) You’ll Always Know What’s the Perfect Gift for Him
Buying the right gift for a partner is a struggle – especially if it’s someone we haven’t been dating for a long time. How much should you spend? Should it be something romantic? How to get a meaningful present that shows your partner that you understand them?
Buying gifts is easy when you’re dating a biker. Whatever motorcycle brand he rides, give him a gift with that same brand name on it. And that’s it. Your biker will be over the top.
5) Motorcycles Attract Attention From Dudes, Mostly
As we previously said, a motorcycle is like a cheat code that makes a person far more attractive. This might make you think women will throw themselves at your biker anywhere he goes. In reality, a motorcycle does draw attention and it does start conversations – but with other guys.
Yes, it’s a plot twist, and it’s a real one. Ask any guy who rides. See diagram below for a clear illustration.
6) He’s Probably Great With His Hands – In More Than One Way
Motorcycle riders are mostly independent and self-reliant. Most of them are at least somewhat mechanically inclined because, hey, they need to know how to fix their bike when it breaks. At least, they need to know what’s wrong with it, and experienced bikers do.
This means he can probably fix stuff around the house. If he rides an old British BSA or a Norton, he can probably fix near anything! Same goes for a Harley and even dirt bikes. Unless he owns a brand new Ducati, you won’t need to hire a handyman ever again!
7) Bikers Are Happier and Smarter People
You never see a motorcycle rider in front of a psychiatrist’s office, and there’s a good reason for that. Riding a motorcycle is the best therapy you could ever get. Ask any rider. It’s the best form of stress relief you can find. Motorcycle riders report higher feelings of satisfaction and much lower stress levels compared to people who don’t ride. Of course, they project these cozy feelings onto their personal life and their relationships.
In addition, a recent Tokyo University study has shown that motorcycle riding enhances cognitive ability in bikers who ride regularly – in other words, bikers are smarter than regular people!
