Women on motorcycles

If women or men should drive on motorcycles doesn't evoke any discussions in most countries while some societies still work on tolerating 'football and women'.

But the individual cultural development is not only country-specific. You can even find in Central European countries men and women who think at first of Britney Spears in 'I Love Rock'n'Roll' as soon as it comes to 'motorcycles and women'. And yes - why not! Britney Spears is great in this video!

Video: 'I Love Rock 'N' Roll' by Britney Spears from the album 'Britney'. Originally, the song was written by the male band 'The Arrows' in the 70s. In the 80s, it was covered by Joan Jett who brought in the motorcycle-style. The style succeeds - and without doubt - with much more sexiness, in Britney Spears' interpretation from 2002.
