aint that the truth. :lol:JayMax said:I believe a large majority of people are still afraid of bikes and won't get on one. I think the fear comes from the way they drive already, and are afraid of being on a bike around someone that drives like them. :lol:
I see more hoopty oldy bikes being sold on ebay for a top dollar that wouldnt have a chance in heck any other time.Gas Man said:I think they will increase a small bit but more likely that the people that own one will just ride it more.
With the price of gas, can anybody really afford a new bike that currently can't afford it. I mean, if you couldn't afford it before you can't afford it now cause of the gas prices... It has put a big pinch on many people.
I know that with me it has ended my traditional Friday night out to eat with friends, that we use to do every week. :nonod:
Only slight increase...the ones that were sitting on the fence about getting a bike or not, may go ahead and get one.ShanMan14 said:Do you think rising gas prices will increase sales in motorcycles?
I especially like that last comment! :lol:JK_DILLA said:Lost of guys here are resting thier diesels for small bikes. i mean i used to be one of 3 bikes that regularly ride my commute route, the other is a loud ninja 500, and an old old old scooter. but now there are tons. Not just big dollar things, klots of harleys, and goldwings, but GS 500's, honda rebels, and another really loud Ninja 500. I think its great. bikes are faster than most cars, get better milage than most cars, look cooler than most cars, and can do wheelies better than most cars.
Bike season isn't almost over in PA... I was riding the circuit in Nov last year!! :dthumb:itgirl25 said:i guess where you live plays a part in how many sales too. bike season is almost over here in PA. i don't care how high the gas prices are, i ain't riding in the snow and bitter cold.
