Orthodontia? Didn't think there was anything wrong with Keira Knightley's teeth. Or anything else of hers actually.

Reminds of something Jeremy Clarkson once said. When driving a car he didn't like very much he said, "I'd rather be in Keira Knightly".

That seemed like a very long commercial. There is also not anything wrong with her. I wouldn't say she was HAWT but I do think is attractive and I will leave it at that.

Nice bike too...lol

Flix I think you get why I Posted this. Most others please pull your thinking caps up to the top of your bodies. a little higher.... up above your shoulders,,, ok now ... and see that this is really cool for the content that the main stream media is finally connecting women with bikes! and they even put SOME gear on here. unlike a sketcher commerical.
I don't even wear perfume and it that ad is totally over the top , I get that. but still

I just made a funny topic name... wasn't a debate if she is hawt or not.. nevermind

Holy crap, are you guys kidding me? This commercial is my fantasy world! Lol, and I'm not saying this because Z is my cyber-mother.... A girl on a properly old school duc - yea, it's a 1970's 750, in that get-up, that can ride like that, and has that independent attitude (take what you can, leave nothing behind).... DAMN! I'd be chasing that for years!

I really don't care if she didn't really ride the bike. Sure, we're all entitled to our opinions and such, but ya'lls are wrong, unless it is of the nature that Knightly is hotter than hell (because of her character's attitude AND aesthetics), and that commercial is better than porn!

edit: Kurt, what's wrong with you? Have you been medicating/therapizing (riding)? Are you alright?

You guys are cracking me up! :)


You gotta remember that I am approaching 50 in October (gasp!!WTF) Grew up in around Hells angles and later on was often around the local members of the GJ's.

Mostly ( with exceptions of course) Women had their place ON the back of the bike. I emergered into tweens in the 70' s so I still have that old school "GO girl" attitude!!! Women are now Part of the Bike world in lots of different ways. Now we just gotta get gear and bike makers on board.

That is why is was so cool to me.!!! the media world is catching on!!
oh and the bike was hot and she is pretty so added eye candy. but they could have used a hotter photo guy.. oh well ...:dance:

I don't think the media is catching on to anything. Actually, to me, it kinda looks like a piss take.

Putting Keira on a bike is just an excuse to get her into some skin tight pink leather while arching her back. She doesn't even look comfortable riding the bike and technically she isn't even really riding it. Her leathers aren't padded so it isn't really riding gear. And women like to wear high heels, so much so that they even wear them when riding. Oh and all women like the colour pink so her bike and gear are all pink. All the same shade of pink of course, it's all gotta match perfectly.

As eye candy, it works. As a positive depiction of women riding motorcycles, I'm not seeing it.

In the pics that Felix posted of her the bike and her leathers look a light shade of pink, especially in the last pic.

*frantically adjusts colour settings on his PC*

Meh, I haven't changed my mind about what I said, my apparent lack of colour recognition notwithstanding.
