Any idea why men have so many pictures of their motorcycles, both on them & just a picture of the machine? I can't understnad this at all- I'd rather see a picture of them

I think they do it because it's a hobby they really love. I think some want to attract another biker, some want to appear "tough" and some just want to express who they are. But I don't get showing a photo of just the bike.

Personally, I don't like motorcycles and don't want to ride on the back of one, nor ride my own, so a bike is not appealing to me. It wouldn't stop me from meeting a guy who has a bike if I found him otherwise interesting, but it's doubtful that we are going to have a lot in common if biking is really important to him.

I'm not particularly interested in seeing photos of a man holding up a fish, either, especially fat middle-aged men without a shirt on. And if a man posts a photo of himself in front of his luxury car or plane, I know he's just trying to impress, which is a turn-off for me.

I think there are a lot of men and women who just don't know what is interesting to the opposite sex. I imagine there are women who post pictures that men find uninteresting or a turn off, like a woman who has 3 photos of her with her cats or something.

Maybe they are trying to convey to you that should you begin to date them, the motorcycle will always come first in the relationship.

  Women do the same thing!!  Big Harley cruisers.  Yeech!  I am not a Harley fan!  So that does nothing for me.
