Cruisers vs Croctch Rockets

Which genre of bikes is tougher to get to support the other? Do you think it is harder to get a cruiser guy, hard core 1%er to support a sport bike guy or vice versa?

Sure let me explain my reasoning behind this. As most know I am putting together a very classy calendar of bikes and babes and have both cruisers and Sport bikes in it. Should the cover be sport bike or cruiser? If sport bike, would any cruiser guys buy it? And same question the other way, if it was a cruiser on the cover, would the sport bike guys buy it.

I vote I would buy regardless if I was in the market for a calendar.

Cruiser = older crowd = would prob have the extra bucks to buy it
Rocket = younger crowd = might or might not have the cash

Hot enough women and most won't care either way. Besides, if it's a wall calender how long will it be hanging and just showing the cover?

Cruiser on the front, Sportbike on the back. The cruiser profile says motorcycle to more people, so should have the front. Having a sportbike on the back cover lets anyone who picks it up know that it covers all motorcycles.

I say both. But if it had to be one or the other. Id go with the cruiser. I don't imagine younger guys buying calendars to hang in their rooms. I imagine the older guy working in an office hanging up a calendar.

the cruiser guys are most assuredly more biased for cruisers and against sportbikes so a sportbike cover would most certainly alienate the cruiser guys. like's been said, why not both?

That's what I would do. Merge the two front wheels so you cover yourself either way, or have them both facing in a V. Seriously though who is looking at the bikes.

Well if you wanted to go all out, I would put both styles on the cover with two chics.. And do so through out the calendar.. Makes it a VS thing and make it a competition between the two.

haha Money would be one reason! I have enough pics and enoug bikes to do both, same 12 girls, I thought about doing alternative covers but my cst goes way up
i like the front back thing better but then again we are talking cost. it's all coming out of my pocket and it's not cheap to put this togeter

i think those 1% would be if it had a sport bike in it at all so i say they are out of the question all to gether ,, if it dont say a HD on it they dont cair,,

im with everyone ,, put both on the cover with chicks and those cruser guys that dont have a problem with sb will buy it and the sb guys that dont mind crusers will buy it as well

i think the hole 1% thing is really up to them !
