For my non-local readers, “Roar on the Shore” is an Erie event where motorcyclists gather. I heard that there might be as many as 50,000 motorcyclists in Erie this weekend, and judging from traffic, I believe it.
Personally, when I use two wheels, I supply my own power, but to each his own. However, the event shows us something about human nature.
I have seen thousands of men riding solo.
I have seen hundreds of women riding solo.
I have seen hundreds of men riding with a female in the back seat, supported by a vertical fender strut.
What I have NEVER seen ANYWHERE is a motorcycle driven by a woman, where a man is sitting in the back, supported by a vertical fender strut.
Are there no feminists in this crowd? Isn’t there a single “liberated” woman, even in a crowd of 50,000, whose husband shares driving time, and occasionally takes his turn in the back? Not even once in a while?
Apparently, feminism has its limits.
