Seems the EU is doing a fucking far better job of killing off young bikers, than father time is with the old.

Or, is it merely a reflection of the quality of this fucking forum?.

If there are 200,000 members

Then why are there only around 20 regular posters?

 

And most of them are one:

I often wonder

how so many of you have the time to make so many postings. Do you ever ride your bikes?

Just took a break from posting...

... to take a spin on the gsxr, it was _damned_ cold on the hands.    Lots of useless drivers on mobiles too, city traffic is terrible these days.

Why less youngsters?

view from a sixth form college teacher...

1) Insurance costs

2) Cars are cooler than before (thank Top Gear I guess for their envouge progress). Bikes may be cooler still, but by less than before

3) Iphones and Xboxes are big revenue drains and no longer consigned to geek-dom death. Indeed, geekery is now cooler than it was before

blha

used to work at a 6th form college, about 50% of them shouldnt even be on the courses as they "cant be arsed"..when one cut me up in his saxo and i was on my zzr, he gave me a load of abuse..littel did he know the principal was a biker with his blackbird parked next to my zzr..my first job in education was within mechanical engineering workshop, some really good lads and lasses which i have met recently and have done well..one done a HND in a year which is some going..I hope to gain my degree in mech eng in a few years time and hopefully by then apprentices will b on the up if cameron sorts it out..i left due to rising childcare costs and wife gaining promotion..:smile

ANichol:

You've certainly got a perspective from that view, but are insurance costs really that much of a "thing" deciding between bikes and cars?   It certainly weighed into the plausibility of one ride over another back in the day for me, but never on the very genre of the transport, if you will.

iPhones (and other such devices of the devil) will play a drag on expendable income elsewhere, but at the point of making bikes unaffordable compared with a chavved up Corsa, really?

I simply do not understand the appeals of these chavmobiles.  Funny thing is,  I always understood the appeal of the favoured vehicles of the generation before.  Did they get as baffled as us?
