It’s official! Motorcyclists are more attractive than drivers (when they’re wearing the gear).

Motorcyclists are more attractive than car drivers. 1000 people were shown pictures of a selection of models, who were each photographed in both biker gear and then the sort of clothes they would be likely to drive in. In five out of six cases, members of the public dressed as motorcyclists were voted as more desirable than when dressed as drivers, making biking leathers and boots the go-to garments for those wanting to impress.

Motorcyclists are more attractive than drivers, according to new research by insurance provider Carole Nash.

1000 people were shown pictures of a selection of models, who were each photographed in both biker gear and then the sort of clothes they would be likely to drive in.

In five out of six cases, members of the public dressed as motorcyclists were voted as more desirable than when dressed as drivers, making biking leathers and boots the go-to garments for those wanting to impress!

Motorcyclists are considered to have attractive personality traits too.  34% said riders were adventurous, 28% agreed they were daring and 26% said they were fun.

The research also revealed that one in four men would pretend they owned a motorbike,  with almost a third (31%) also saying they would go the whole way and learn to ride one if they knew it would impress a potential partner.

For those who want to try motorcycling for the first time, or who want to return to riding, Get On is currently touring events and multi-purpose test centres across the UK with its free ride opportunities.  Find out if the Get On road show is coming to a town year you.
