More Image Promotion?



Motorcyclists are on a serious downswing, image-wise. It would be nice if we weren't over-represented by gangbangers on Hardlys. But we are and this is one consequence of a continuing declining image. On the upside, Guy Pierce is one of my favorite actors, so I bet it is entertaining.

  1. On the plus side, the sound of the Harley jousting with Guy Pierce on a horse sounded more like my Vespa than the V-twins I hear thundering around here.

    I don't think the portrayals of motorcycles are what's going to strangle riding into a quaint little niche activity of old men, it's the addictive adrenaline inducing video games that will draw away the would be riders of the future. Who wants to go on a boring ride down the road when you can kill zombies or fly spaceships??

  2. You need a better sound system, but I agree it was closer to a real motorcycle than a Hardly sound. I guess I've never heard a Hardly rev'd up much, though.

    I think 50 years of promoting the gangbanger image is what put bikes in the "quaint little niche activity of old men" and women. We have a buttload of those characters around there and between the non-existent riding skills and the Village People outfits and the blue hairs, it's tough to imagine a kid wanting to "be like" any of those bozos.

  3. Dear T. W. Day, thank you for sharing this very information blog. Gangbanger image has been created by putting bikes in the small niche activity of both old women and men. But these images created cannot be replaced by any other normal men or child who wants to become a gangbanger. Thank you for showcasing the handsome Guy Pierce’s Disturbing the peace trailer.

Disagree? Bring it on. Have more to add? Feel free to set me straight.
