Buongiorno miei amata amici!

I remember my first ride on the back of a motorcycle as if it was yesterday. My dad had a buddy who rode a bike who stopped by the house and gave me a ride around the block. I was very young and thought it was the coolest thing ever.

Years later, my on again-off again boyfriend showed up at my house and gave me a ride on the back of his dirtbike. I still don't know if the thrill came from the ride or the guy?!?!


What is it about men who ride bikes that attracts women? Is it his adventurous spirit? Is it his need for speed or his bad guy persona? I don't presume to have the answers...but one thing is for sure, generations of people have had a love affair with motorcycles.

In the spirit of keeping this blog as Italian as possible, I will share with you Italian police motorbike riders from the 1950's performing a public display of talent. Which is your favorite stunt?

  2. Those are some talented Italian police officers.

    OK, so I've never actually BEEN on a motorcycle, but it does look exciting. The first time I decided that it was "sexy" was watching the music video for Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl." You know that part where Christie Brinkley gets on the back of Billy Joel's bike and shakes out her hair? I thought that was great. And romantic.

  3. Hi Shooting Stars Mag!

    I am not huge about riding on them unless it is for a gentle ride, but most men like to show off and scare the crap out of the women! :)

  4. Hi Atypical Girl!

    That is too funny! I love it! Isn't it amazing how certain things create feelings in us from memories they evoke? I do recall that scene so vividly. :)

  5. What I want to know is why were they out riding motorcycles instead of fighting crime??

    I haven't been on a motorcycle since I was 13. A boy I liked back then had one and took me riding. It was fun.

  6. Wow...that was really impressive! I can't even imagine how much time was spent on that to make it look so flawless. I liked when they were criss-crossing each other...it looked like they would hit one another, but it was really smooth. Very interesting. Thanks for sharing!
