    Apparently, the Baby-Boomers nearly all have motorcycles. Generation X is only buying a few, and the next generation isn't buying any at all. A recent study was done to find out why. Here are the reasons why Millennials don't ride motorcycles:

    1. Pants won't pull up far enough for them to straddle the seat.
    2. Can't get their phone to their ear with a helmet on.
    3. Can't use two hands to eat while driving.
    4. They don't get a trophy and a recognition plaque just for buying one.
    5. Don't have enough muscle to hold the bike up when stopped.
    6. Might have a bug hit them in the face and then they would need emergency care.
    7. Motorcycles don't have air conditioning.
    8. They can't afford one because they spent 12 years in college trying to get a degree in Humanities, Social Studies or Gender Studies for which no jobs are available.
    9. They are allergic to fresh air.
    10. Their pajamas get caught on the exhaust pipes.
    11. They might get their hands dirty checking the oil.
    12. The handle bars have buttons and levers and cannot be controlled by touch-screen.
    13. You have to shift manually and use something called a clutch.
    14. It's too hard to take selfies while riding.
    15. They don't come with training wheels like their bicycles did.
    16. Motorcycles don't have power steering or power brakes.
    17. Their nose ring interferes with the face shield.
    18. They would have to use leg muscle to back up.
    19. When they stop, a light breeze might blow exhaust in their face.
    20. It could rain on them and expose them to non-soft water.
    21. It might scare their therapy dog, and then the dog would need therapy.
    22. Can't get the motorcycle down the basement stairs of their parent's home.

    I don't ride a motorcycle unless it is off road. I love my big ol Ford F-150 4X4 with an 8' bed. I can smoke a cigar as I go down the highway listening to the tunes and sipping coffee. When I get tired after 500-600 miles I crawl in the back under the shell and roll out the mattress, bag and comforter and catch a little nappy! :roflmaro::roflmaro::roflmaro:

    Think at 74 I qualify as an old fart but this is what I get my 2 wheel kicks on. Tweaking on it for years, 176 h.p. at rear wheel. 5b004dd4af3da14537178a91.jpg
