  1. When doing searches looking for bike related stuff do you search for motorbikes or motorcycles.

  7. Motorcycle- because it seems to get more results. When searching google, ebay etc.
  8. hahaha, i hate when you tell people you have just gone for a ride, or that you ride a bike and they think you mean a push bike :LOL:
  9. for me its the opposite because most days im on the pushie and people always think im on the motorbike.
  10. Or if you say you "ride" and they assume you mean horses! :LOL: :roll: :LOL:
