Have you ever ridden a CHOPPER?

PassionateLover2 PassionateLover2
So I was wondering, have one ever ridden a Chopper? Do you own one? Is it safe? Would you get a thrill in riding one just once? This is for guys and girls of all ages!

I have not, and don't want to - I find their sound obnoxious.

I have not and I think they are way too loud and annoying every time one drives by.

I like motorcycles and my father is a biker, but if I was ever on anything other than a Harley he wouldn't like it too much.

I have ridden on the back of a regular motorcycle. It was fun. I think the experience would be close enough. I wouldn't say never, but I'm not seeking one out. But a helicopter sounds great!

I've known plenty of owners but they've never been my thing. Give me fast Japanese bikes (or a nice Triumph) any day

I laughed when you asked "is it safe". My answer to that is simple. I have seen the toll that motorcycles take on the unfortunate riders when ANY tiny thing goes wrong. In my business, we call them "donor cycles" for a reason.

However, my analysis for if any vehicle is safe, is pretty straight forward....1. The least safe and worst built car ever on the road was a YUGO. 2. ANY motorcycle ever built, no matter how big, how bad, how much chrome and how big an engine WILL lose in a one on one with a YUGO...even at LOW speed. 3. That is enough information for me.

That's my take, but for all you riders out there....since I KNOW how delicate flesh (even in leather) is, compared to concrete or asphalt flying by at 30, 40, 50 plus miles an hour, I am one of those drivers that is going to give you LOTS of space and LOTS of safe leeway.

Stay safe, and pack your dental floss....the lovebugs are out.

From your moniker I have to assume you are a NURSE. (just a wild guess), and thus I must point out how many doctors and nurses ride motorcycles. I can't figure it out, but a LOT do. It is like the fact that of all the doctors I know, the ONLY one's who smoke are cardiologists and pulmonologists!!! My guess is that it has to do with the "I'm not vulnerable" syndrome of denial.

when I was younger, my father had a harley. i loved going out on the back of that with him. it's freedom. we met a lot of cool people, too. and had some great memories. i'd go on a chopper. i'd love to have one, too! i've also been on the back of my friends crotch rocket. that is a little scary! felt like i was going to fly off.

I LOVE motorcycles and I hope to one day own my own but I have known people who have them and I have ridden on the back. I have even fell off of one (not fun) and its easy to get burned on the tail pipe if you are not paying attention. (I have done it a few times)

Have rode one but not owned one. Know lots of folks that own.

"Are they safe?" What are we talking about here, a chopper versus a standard bike or bikes in general?

I have been riding for over 20 years, only put mine on the ground once thanks to a careless driver that decided that stopping on a corner of the highway for no reason would be fun. My leather kept me form any real damage and I was back up in a second...mostly so I could give them a piece of my mind. After that I rode/ride offensively and spend as much time looking in mirrors and watching eyes as I do watching the road. As a comparison, I have been in more car/truck accidents than bike accidents.

Now, standard versus chopper. Choppers are very hard to control at low speeds, say under 30mph. The long front end makes the balance all funny which makes it hard during turns. After 30mph they ride smooth as silk (Unless you have a hardtail) and are very easy to ride.

For those that have mentioned about the "Noise", not all bikes are loud nor do they have to be. But, most owners want them that way. All to many people do NOT watch out for bikes so by having loud pipes this helps the drivers of cars/trucks to know they are around. Most of the accidents involving bikes are from drivers of vehicles not looking twice, like you should anyways, before turning or changing lanes. Were talking about folks that ride by the rules, not speed freaks on bikes that will do any speed limit in the USA in first gear.

I love how there's no answer for simply saying "yes, I've ridden a chopper"

I've never ridden one. I'm not sure I really want to.
