“Blondes have more fun!” is a stereotype that has its origins in a post-WWII Clairol advertising slogan:
Does she or doesn't she?
Only her hairdresser knows for sure!
Do blondes have more fun?
If i've one life...let me live it as a blonde!
The perception of blondes having more fun has been exploited in culture and advertising for years. But studies indicate that women in general, blondes, brunettes, redheads and others are having more fun on motorcycles.
According to the Motorcycle Industry Council, the trend of more women buying motorcycles has experienced steady growth in recent years. A 2018 survey shows that women make up 19 percent of motorcycle owners. The demographic has almost doubled since 2009 when only 10 percent of bike riders were women.
While no research has been conducted to determine what percentage of women riding motorcycles are blondes, like the slogan says, they are probably having more fun.
Here are twenty photos of blondes on motorcycles.
