Uh, scooters and mopeds don't count as motorcycles. Please don't reply, just absorb, learn and move on. Thank you

Could be either or both. With five posts since joining, three of them in this thread, the situation warranted a little addition by subtraction.

My favorite automotive related commercial is still the Ford GT commercial filmed at Thunderhill. No stupid music, no tits and ass. Just tire smoke and loud V8 noises. Would have been even better without the narrator and straight pipes on the car.

I've avoided saying much about this ad anywhere, other than posting my thoughts in a blog post. Overall though, IMO, the ad was in very poor taste, I feel the company has gone out of their way to alienate women such as myself, and have promoted this idea that women are just ornaments.

I first saw this bike on a more informational ad, and loved the machine, and thought it may be something I would have seriously considering purchasing. This ad, and the company's take on it, has me highly questioning that. Yes, I know none of that detracts from the bike itself, but it does speak to the type of people MV wants owning their bikes, and they have made it plainly obvious that someone like myself is NOT in that segment.

On the other hand, I'm not going to get all up in arms about it or have it affect my life or ultimately my choices - and while I have no desire to fight for my opinion on the ad, I also stand behind my opinion for a variety of reasons that are far too extensive to get into here.

Clearly you don't understand the definition of misogyny.

Nope. That's all I got.

Got anything else to make you look less like a virtue signalling cuck?
Too bad your name wasn't accurate.


This type of thread is why ladies keep leaving. Most don't come back. I did. Not sure why other than my love of the sport and a good portion of the real people around here, not some keyboard fuckwits who try to shit on Dennis's couch.
