    It seems like a lot of the men on here have names that suggest that they have an affinity for instruments or music or motorcycles. Just wondering myself if this is the case as I am an enthusiast of both. Are musicians and bikers naturally biased toward being highly sexual?

    Not really. I'm a guitarist but don't think I'm as sexual as many on the site. I don't make reference to it my name but many know about my interest.

    I think we associate male guitarists as sexual individuals and exploit it whether it is in the name or by letting others know that we play.

    interesting question....maybe the "artistic" side of the brain, is also the "sexual" side of the brain?
    i play guitar, (not real well, but i get by)and my love of the blues made me pick up a bullet mike and plug it into 1950's era silvertone amp and do my best "little walter jacobs" imitation on harmonica...lol.
    I had a bike when i was younger, but quit riding after my kids were born...

    I played guitar in a rock band in the seventies and it seemed like getting laid was very easy. I no longer play, but I am a biker. It does attract a lot of stares and outright propositions from women but I'm married now so its a nonfactor. I think it all has to do with confidence.

    There is a definite correlation between motorcyles and sex: riding a high-performance bike on the limit is very much like riding a wild woman on the limit. I remember reading Jackie Stewart's (3 times Formula One world chamption) book on the 1970 season where he likened driving a grand prix car on the limit to having sex, and I knew EXACTLY what he meant.

    But this doesn't apply to sloppy and obese Harley Davidsons though. They are a motorcycle of a different category to what I used to ride and race.

    I'm not sure there's a correlation but I do know that I've always thought that guys who played guitar (especially blues and classic rock) were sexy. A guy on a motorcycle can also be very hot. (I'm envisioning some leather chaps...)

    creativity and a free lifestyle may be the common thread between musicians and bikers! i can't play a durn thing but i know a little about guitars and road equipment, although i can turn a mean wrench!

    See if you can find racing footage of the Mount Panorama circuit at Bathurst; it's likened to being a short Nurburgring. I raced a Yamaha TZ350 around there and up the hill was hard work 'cause the bike would fall off the powerband (anything below 6000) in the hairpin in the cutting, so we would slip the clutch in second to keep up momentum. Through the dipper and the esses and into Forests Elbow was trail braking (braking and turning at the same time cause it's hard downhill and you've got curve after curve). There's a sharp rise on a mostly downhill Conrod straight, and over the crest you would be airborne at 250 kmh or maybe faster. Around the top of the mountain were three blind left-handers flat in fourth (about 180 or so). They were blind because the road was mostly flat-ish but the apexes were over slight crests, so you had to aim for where you thought the apexes were at those speeds!

    I also had a RD350LC road bike which was a road-ready TZ, and a rule of thumb was double the cornering speed and add as far as you could see. So a 55km/h signposted curve was 110 and a bit, 45 was 90 and a bit. Even though it had a very rigid frame it used to flex at the rear suspension bushes with those sorts of g-forces.

    The big four-strokes (I had a limited edition tuned Suzuki 1000 air-cooled four) were easy, because you would hook them into a corner and then power slide past the apex and out, which was easy because they had a lot of torque (more torque than grip). So that's power-sliding at 90 or 100 or whatever. Rule of thumb would be 55 sign is 90, so it didn't have the grip and balance of the RD350, but was easier to ride because the RD had no torque. The TZ was the same with no torque, but racing is quite different to riding hard on winding roads.

    That's what I mean by motorycyles on the limit. Don't do anything like that with a Harley. That's also why I've got a German hot hatch, because I tend to drive it the same way (a 45km/h curve is 90 or more, with lots of g-forces presssing you against the rigid side bolstering of the sports seats). Imagine my wife when we go for a drive on a winding road!

    I seem to be the odd one out, I rather play with fire than play a guitar or ride a bike. By the way Meow, of course you can play! Why wouldn't they/we want you to play? Can't wait till I'm steady and can buy/make a flamethrower...
