Why Can’t You Just Fit In?

We hear it all the time… The fairer gender isn’t exempt from it either. It’s the uproar we face as a reaction to our actions, our look, our desires, our love, and our will to be ourselves. It’s the static that we get for being motorcyclists. So. Much. Noise.

“Stop dressing like a hobo.”

“You look like a boy.”

“I liked your hair long.”

“Why’d you get that tattoo?”

“Don’t you think you should get a car?”

“You’re too pretty to have huge holes in your ears.”

“Someday you’re going to regret that.”

“Motorcycles are dangerous.”

Victoria captured a lot of motorcyclist spirit with this selfy on her Instagram:

Here’s one of my own:

“Why can’t you just fit in?”

Why can’t I just fit in? Because I never have, and because I hope I never will. Because if I did I’d be just like you, and that just wouldn’t be me.
