There is no getting around the fact that scantily clad women standing by and on bikes is just a part of biker culture. It’s not a huge part of it, but the two go hand in velvety hand all too often. We try not to post too many images of that sort of thing, mostly because there is just so much OTHER cool stuff to tell you guys and gals about, and there isn’t really any effort involved in posting a half-naked woman on a bike and captioning it: “OMG SO HAWT!” Also, it’s hard to moderate the comments on images like that, as we get people from both sides firing comments about the appropriateness of said images.
With all that said, we absolutely HAD to share with you guys this awesome set of images that were taken by the hilarious staff at MotoCorsa, which is a fantastic Ducati dealership in Portland, Oregon. The staff there recently decided to show off the ridiculous poses some women are asked to be in while shooting motorcycles, and the gallery below highlights that ridiculousness by making (mostly) burly biker men pose in almost nothing, while bending over and bending back on the seats and gas cans of a beautiful Ducati 1199 Panigale. This “MANIgale” series of pictures is hilarious, and eye-opening, in that it really does show how one-sided some of these images can be.
Scroll all the way down to check out the pics, and be sure to visit MotoCorsa’s website and dealership, especially if you’re in the Portland area, and let them know how much you loved these pics.
