Its not the physical appearance itself that bothers me, it's the idea behind it. Kinda sad when your biggest ambition in life is to look pretty on a motorcycle, and that's exactly what the name throttle dolls implies. Doesn't exactly do much for equality IMO.

So what's wrong with a hot babe wanting to look hot riding a bike? Are they wanting more than that?

Guess I don't see how you came to the conclusion their biggest ambition in life is looking pretty. To me the obvious conclusion is they want to encourage more women to ride.

I ain't no f-ing "doll" - I am a real life woman and would never ride with the word "doll" on my jacket! (Maybe a Barbie danging from a noose LOL!)

I'd love to start an all-women MC, women who love bikes, love to ride, and don't pander to the stereotypes! The biggest problem is that I can't find any! :(

They are out there Dianne. Just not as many as there should be. We have several that ride with us in the American Legion. Great women that are ready to ride any time rain or shine. Unlike some of the wimpy men on occasion.
