Harley has higher sex appeal for women than men, according to American dating service, BikerKiss. And some women even find Harleys give them an orgasm!
The Southern California online dating service asked about 3000 members (1900 men and 1100 women) “is Harley your favourite motorcycle brand” and 31% of women said yes, compared with 19% men. A loaded question to patriotic Americans, maybe, but it shows that women like a nice, big status symbol.
The most common answer to the question was that Harley motorcycles are “gorgeous and expensive”. One dating club member said: ”I love it when I am on a Harley. It gives you all the attention you want.” Another said: “it’s not about being pretentious or anything, or like I’m doing it out of vanity. I just love it deep down.”
But here’s the thing that Harley-Davidson will love the most: some women are able to orgasm while riding a Harley because of the vibration from the big twin-cylinder engines. After all, sex sells, right?
While Harley may be able to use sex as a sales attribute for their bikes, BMW can’t do the same as a recent court threw out a claim by a Californian rider that his BMW K 1100 RS gave him a permanent erection.
If it’s not about sex, then riding a Harley is about lifestyle, the BikerKiss dating service found. BikerKiss.com is the world’s first biker dating site for biker singles who are looking to meet other biker friends. The website also found in another survey that fun and finances are the top reasons for people to ride a motorcycle, despite motorcycles being risky and vulnerable to the weather.
