What is it with chefs and motorbikes?

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by Josheos, Sep 14, 2015.

  1. I'm a chef of 4 years and started riding a few years ago, my housemate is also an ex chef who has an sv650, what is it with chefs and motorbikes? Gordon Ramsey? Gary mehigan? Idk I've just found it a common thing amongst us that 8/10 of us ride

  6. Because Motorbikes, like gourmet food can only be appreciated by connoisseurs.

    People who understand the finer point of things and life in general. :)

  8. Hahaha.

    Could you imagine the road rage from a fully suited up Gordon Ramsay after being cut off by a car in peak hour traffic!

  9. Ex-chef here - can confirm a lot of chefs I worked with also rode bikes. When you're doing 18 hour shifts for two weeks in a row, you need that escape haha.

  11. work late nights and most weekends. Don't have much of a social life.

    can get out on the roads of a weekday when there's no weekend warriors.
