Several reasons couples should ride together and each other on a motorcycle

Some riders love motorcycles because it gives them a short escape from their partner, but riding as couples could have more advantages, including better sex!

Motorbike Writer psychologist Sharon Ledger says sharing your motorcycling passion could lead to more passion in the bedroom.

“By all means, go for a ride with your mates, but also go for rides that include your partner as it will increase your intimacy,” she says.

Sharon and her husband, Brien, not only share a passion for riding, but also Indian motorcycles. Sharon rides a Scout Sixty and Brien a Chief Vintage.

“It is important to have some balance in your riding life,” she says. “If you only ever went riding with others, it could cause resentment in your partner.

“Sometimes it’s good just for one of us to go and bond with our friends. Guys need ‘bloke time’ to talk about bloke stuff and women need ‘girl time’.

“You need time together and time apart to keep things interesting.”

Whether you each ride, or one of you is the dedicated pillion-in-a-million like Mrs MBW, there are many healthy attributes of couples riding.

10 REASONS RIDING COUPLES LAST LONGER

BEING POSITIVE
It’s difficult for riders to be negative when they are riding. And studies have shown that couples who have a positive attitude have a healthier marriage.

TIME TOGETHER
Couples may live in the same house, but their time together can be limited by TV, social media, household duties and other distractions. When you ride together, you are sharing focused, quality time. University studies have shown that couples who share their hobby have a happier marriage.

SHARED FRIENDS
If you ride with a group of friends or in a club, you are sharing your social circle which can be healthy for a relationship. However, be warned that some studies have also shown this can lead to unhealthy results such as jealousy. So, don’t always ride with your club. Enjoy some time riding just as a couple.

ECONOMIC BENEFITS
If you have different hobbies, it can be expensive. But if you share the same hobby, you can share costs. Although, if you both have a bike, it can also double costs!

COMMON GOALS
Following on from the above, your priorities become identical, so there is less chance of fighting. If you are both striving to get the housework done so you can go riding, you’ll no doubt work together. There is also the benefit of having a common goal toward saving for a bike, gear or a riding holiday, which is a healthy bonding experience.

PRESENTS AND GIFTS
You will never again be at a loss for a gift to buy your partner for their birthday, Fathers/Mothers Day, Christmas and/or Valentines Day. Just hit your local motorcycle store and get some bike accessories or gear for your partner. Or book a combined riding holiday.

SHARED MEMORIES
Growing old together is about sharing memories of family, friends and events. If you share your major pastime, you will have so much more to share.

COMMUNICATION
The home is not a conducive environment to communicate because of the tensions that may live there. Getting out on the bike and talking at your favourite cafe stop puts you in a more conducive environment for good communication. Also, modern Bluetooth intercoms allow you to continue to chat while riding, pointing out things you see as you go and discussing issues without arguing. It’s hard to argue when you’re having such a good time riding.

TALKING TOPICS
Have you ever seen the couple sitting in a restaurant, not saying anything? Sharing a hobby and a ride give you so much more to talk about.

BETTER SEX
We saved the best for last. Sharon says being a pillion develops intimacy by constant touching. But even riding on separate bikes is good because it is a mental and emotional build-up to a physical bonding at the end of the ride. “Men just have to think about sex and can have it, but women need time to build up. Riding together can be part of that build-up to a more physical intimacy. Even talking and sharing the emotional experience of a ride can put women more in the mood for sex.”

And we even have 5 tips for you how to do it properly

For a motorcycle enthusiast, the sex experience on a bike is often a fantasy. When it comes to fruition, it can be disappointing if inexperience plays a roll. The possible positions are not always easy to execute and balance is sometimes a needed piece of the puzzle. Use these tips to make the experience the best it can be without regretting it later.

Not in public. The first motorcycle sex tip is to make sure the area you choose offers the necessary privacy. Public nudity is against the law in all states. The charge can range from a ticket to jail time. If a minor happens to cross paths with your escapade, you can actually end up with a sex offender label for the rest of your life. Avoid legal issues by choosing to only have motorcycle sex in areas where there is no danger of being viewed by others. A privacy fenced area or a thickly wooded area is preferable to the open road. If you are having “rolling sex”, choose a road less traveled at a time when traffic is non-existent.

Rev it up. A motorcycle sex tip that might not have crossed your mind is to leave the engine running with the bike in park. The vibration of the engine acts like an over-sized sex toy for both participants. Rev the engine up and the intensity of sex rises.

Doggie-Style. Often, motorcycle sex is thought of as the woman facing the man on the bike. This motorcycle sex tip tells you to turn the lady around and go doggie style. With the woman in the front seat leaning over the gas tank, the motion of sex is natural.

Get off. This motorcycle sex tip tells men to get off the bike. Sit the lady on the seat facing you controlling the throttle of the bike. Stand in front of her or even attempt it from behind with the bike on the center stand.

Try oral. The final motorcycle sex tip is to try oral on the bike. Ladies lay on the tank with their feet over the handle bars. This gives them easy access to the right male parts.

Pervert, 34, avoids jail despite drunkenly exposing himself in a Kent city centre street and attempting to have sex with a motorbike

A pervert has narrowly avoided jail despite exposing himself in broad daylight – and trying to have sex with a motorbike.

Kevin Chapman downed two litres of cider and a cocktail of tablets, then pushed over the Suzuki 600cc, whipped out his genitals and started performing a solo sex act before trying to perform the sexual manoeuvres with the vehicle.

The drunk 34-year-old had been arguing with a group of homeless people before he punched, kicked, stamped and urinated on the bike – that did not belong to him – in the busy city centre of Canterbury, Kent, in broad daylight.

Chapman relieved himself on the motorbike before simulating sex with it by pulling down his trousers and starting the bizarre sexual moves.

The father-of-three initially denied exposing his genitalia and grinding the two-wheeled motor, claiming he was pushed and goaded by the homeless group near bars and pubs during a busy area on the afternoon of March 27.

But a number of shocked witnesses filmed Chapman on their mobile phones as he got out his penis, started shouting abuse at people and then simulated having sex with the bike.

Folkestone Magistrates Court heard on Wednesday Chapman then pulled off the wing mirror and used it to hit another vehicle.

Neil Sweeney prosecuting said: ‘The vehicle was unattended, parked in a car park, Mr Chapman remembered arguing with a group of homeless people.

‘He knocked over the motorbike then knocked the mirror off and started using it to hit an unknown vehicle.

‘The defendant was then seen to kick and stamp on the motorbike as well as pour something in it, then urinating on the bike, before shouting and swearing at people.

‘He continued shouting an swearing, before removing his trousers exposing his penis and genitals and masturbating towards members of the public. He also continued to touch himself under his clothing.

‘The defendant then began simulating sex with the motorbike as it lay on its side with his genitals exposed.

‘A number of people captured the incident on mobile phone and it was captured by CCTV.

‘Under interview he said he had been pushed into the bike and there was a crowd of people laughing at him.

‘When showed the CCTV he accepted it was him and when shown the footage of him simulating sex appeared ashamed.’

Before the indecent exposure incident Chapman had made threatening phone calls to former partner Stacey Holt, who he has two children with, after she began seeing his landscape gardening business partner, Russell Souter, who is 14 years his junior.

After putting on an ‘Indian’ accent and making threatening calls to his rival, Chapman was admitted to to St Martin’s psychiatric hospital in Canterbury, before being released on the day he committed the sex act with a bike.

Mr Sweeney added: ‘In January Mr Souter received a number of missed phone calls from an unknown number, when he answered one it was Mr Chapman who had put on an Indian accent saying “I’m coming for you, it’s your last night, I’m going to cut you up so you’re not recognisable to Stace and the kids. I’m not going to stop, if I can’t get you I going to get your grandad and grandma”.’

In another call to Russell he said, ‘I’ll run you over, you fat mug, you messed up little boy’, to which Russell replied, ‘OK I’m indoors’.

Three months later Chapman then went to the home he used to share with Stacey and smashed up her new partner’s Ford Transit van and attacked her front door.

Mr Sweeney told the court: ‘Miss Holt is a partner from a previous relationship, this ended last year.

‘Mr Souter is his business partner who was now in a relationship with Miss Holt. He went to her home where a Ford Transit belonging to Mr Souter was parked in the driveway.

‘Mr Chapman started smashing the van with he crowbar, causing around £3,000 of damage. He then went to the front door and started smashing that as well, causing £1,000 of damage.’

At earlier hearings Chapman admitted indecent exposure and causing criminal damage of around £250 to the bike worth £1,000, as well as two further criminal damage charges and a malicious communication offence.

Wearing a grey suit and black tie, carrying a large black holdall, Chapman spoke only to confirm his name, date of birth, address and thank magistrates as he left court.

The court also heard Chapman had ‘no recollection’ of indecently exposing himself after drinking two litres of ‘strong’ cider and downing Paracetamol and sleeping tablets.

Niall Doherty defending said: ‘Alcohol and drugs lead to this inappropriate behaviour. His business partner and domestic partner were together.

‘The fact he was being pushed out by a 20-year-old suitor, he found he had lost his job, his family and he didn’t deal with it well. His life spiralled out of control.

‘He says there was a group of homeless people goading him, as well as a group of youths. They were saying rather unpleasant things and telling him to do things. It is because of this goading that he acted in a totally inappropriate way in a public place.’

Chapman was handed a four month jail sentence, suspended for 12 months and ordered to pay £680 compensation divided between two of the victims.

He was also ordered to complete a 12-month community order for alcohol treatment.

David Gardner, chair of the bench, said: ‘You are obviously and totally embarrassed by everything that has happened.’

Chapman, of Chatham, Kent, has two previous convictions for burglary and stealing a car in 2013, in which he was jailed for 126 days both offences and also had criminal damage convictions dating back to 2009.
