->''"What is it with you and bikes?"''

[[caption-width-right:340: [[AllBikersAreHellsAngels Hell must be missing an Angel]]. In the most literal sense, [[UsefulNotes/MotorcycleSafety with such abysmal safety gear]].]]

Women who operate fast vehicles are apparently attractive. Maybe it's the [[SpyCatsuit tight]] [[HellBentForLeather leather]]. Also includes car drivers and female pilots.

Compare and contrast [[HoodOrnamentHottie Hood-Ornament Hottie]]. The two are similar, but a Biker Babe actually rides the bike and often wear outfits which are a little more conducive to road safety. (Although the page image is an exception to this rule of thumb.)

May deliver a "SamusIsAGirl" reveal, if she doesn't wear her leathers skintight and does wear a full helmet.

Essentially the DistaffCounterpart to BadassBiker, in that she won't be a pushover if things get messy, although she may be less aggressively badass than he is.

Will likely induce a HelloNurse effect on nearby males, and maybe some StupidSexyFlanders from [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer a nearby female]].

Compare HoodOrnamentHottie who is ''purely'' decorative.

!!Motorcycle Riders

[[folder:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* ''Anime/{{Appleseed}}'' does this with the main character, Deunan. She is seen in the ''Ex Machina'' movie riding a pink motorbike around the city of Olympus. This depiction isn't shown again in the movie, but gives an insight into her personality.
* One of Anime/CuteyHoney's more prominent forms is a biker.
* Being inspired by Cutey Honey, so is ''AngelBlade''. She is [[DistractedByTheSexy a hazard to every male driver she passes by]].
* Natsuki Kuga from ''Anime/{{Mai-HiME}}''
* Likewise her NamesTheSame {{Expy}} in the first episode of ''Anime/GaReiZero''.
* Benten, one of the Seven Gods of Good Fortune in ''Anime/UruseiYatsura'', is portrayed this way.

** In the Materials Collection, [=JunJun=] is also stated to ride a bike, though all we ever see of this in the series is a rather 80's esque biker outfit.

* Haruko from ''Anime/{{FLCL}}''.
* Jun The Swan from ''[[Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman Gatchaman]]'', where riding her bike ''off a waterfall'', jumping off it in midair, and landing gracefully back on it before it hits the ground is no big deal for her.

** In ''Anime/LupinIIIEpisode0FirstContact'', Fujiko is introduced with the bike, and uses it to get around during the flashback.
** In ''Anime/TheCastleOfCagliostro'', when the climax is over, Fujiko drives away in her motorcycle [[spoiler: with the Goat Bills plates in her bags.]]
* Masayo, a one-time character in ''Anime/TenchiInTokyo'' who befriends Ayeka and Sasami. [[spoiler: She was a shooting star turned into a woman by Yugi and their squad, and had to befriend the girls to keep them from findign Tenchi. But after they learn that she's also searching for her also-humanized boyfriend, Isao, the sisters help her find him.]]

* Michiko from ''Anime/MichikoToHatchin'' rides a [[http://animeyume.com/blog/images/michiko_to_hatchin1.png strange scooter/motorcycle thing]], and is quite adept with it: pulling all kinds of stunts like wheelies, ramp jumps and ''riding across rooftops''.
* In ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'', Panty Anarchy drives a motorcycle occasionally.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* ''FanFic/MegaManDefenderOfTheHumanRace'' has Miss T, who frequently rides a motorcycle.
[[/folder]]

* Rather averted with the mean female bikers in ''Film/RatRace''.
-->Nice [[FreudianSlip dyke]]! I mean bike!
* ''Film/BarbWire'' (1996). The title character, played by Pamela Anderson, rides a motorbike. Based on a comic book. It provides the page image.
* ''Film/{{Cyclone}}'' (1987). Teri Marshall (Heather Thomas) rides the titular motorcycle.
* Pretty much every female character in ''Film/{{Driven}}''.

* The Bride from ''Film/KillBill'' - although no stunning reveal, just stalking. Still hot and creepy though.

* Rebecca, title character of the 1968 British-French film ''The Girl on a Motorcycle'' (''[[VaporWear Naked]] [[HellBentForLeather Under Leather]]'').

[[/folder]]

[[folder:LiveActionTV]]
* Attempted with DC Juliet Becker in ''Series/TheBill''.
* Cathy Gale from ''Series/TheAvengers''.
* In the "Singing Telegram" episode of ''Series/SmallWonder'', Joan rode a motorcycle ''into the living room''.

In the DVD commentary, the producers convinced [[ExecutiveMeddling FOX executives]] that if X-5s could be shown surviving 12-story leaps, they could surely ride a motorbike without a helmet.
* ''Series/DropTheDeadDonkey''. Dave and Henry are shown drooling over Helen's lesbian girlfriend, a leather-clad motorbike courier.
-->'''Henry:''' "Look, she's straddling the motorcycle!"
-->'''Dave:''' "No cow was sacrificed in a greater cause."

[[/folder]]

[[folder:VideoGames]]

* In ''VideoGame/FullThrottle'', the Vultures biker gang has a handful of female members. [[spoiler:including motorcycle company heiress Maureen]].
* In ''VideoGame/RumbleRoses'', the {{Heel}} incarnations of both Reiko and Dixie are both variations of this trope.
* Akira of ''VideoGame/RivalSchools'' has "motorbikes" listed as one of her likes in her profile, and she's even shown driving one on a game cover. Not to mention the bodyglove biker suit and the (optional) helmet.
* Maki, from the ''VideoGame/StreetFighter'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFight'' series, is a biker babe. A [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot 'ninja']] biker babe.
* Claire Redfield in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2''.
* ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' and her rival Jeanne drive motorcycles. They can do cool tricks with them like drive up walls and on enemies' faces.
* Blue Mary Ryan from the ''VideoGame/FatalFury'' series is also a good example.
** Although she doesn't look the part, Chizuru Kagura from ''VideoGame/KingOfFighters'' is this as well.

** The first [[http://www.court-records.net/arts/gs3_05.jpg design sketches]] of ''T&T''[='=]s younger Mia Fey had her on a motorbike, too. This didn't survive to the final product, unfortunately.
* Another Haruko from ''VisualNovel/{{AIR}}''.
* She never does it in the actual visual novel, but Arturia, the Saber from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', is one badass biker babe. Turns out her ability of being a supernaturally adept "rider" isn't limited to animals...
* Azami of ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'' rides a scooter, but she used to be part of a gang called Hell's Birdies. What she loses in coolness for being a very meticulous, careful driver she regains in how she fights.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:WesternAnimation]]
* Roxy Rocket of the Franchise/{{DCAU}} tries to be this. Whether or not she succeeds is an issue to take to the forums.

* ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'' has Sonic's sister Sonia.
* Arcee of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' uses a hologram of a helmeted Biker Babe in a skintight leather outfit as part of her motorcycle disguise when she's in public. This causes problems for Jack in one scene when his crush assumes that Arcee's "rider" is his girlfriend.

* ''Film/{{Thunderball}}'' had Fiona Volpe and her motorcycle; the remake ''Film/NeverSayNeverAgain'' had Fatima Blush, who led Bond on a chase in a (heavily modified) screaming mid-engined Renault 5. Volpe herself got Bond a bit anxious as a passenger in her Mustang.
* In ''Film/TheFastAndTheFurious'' series, virtually all of the female characters are this, even Mia who is otherwise much less badass than most of the guys.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pinball]]
* In ''Pinball/{{Corvette}}'', the player periodically gets into race Challenges against an assortment of sexy models, each of whom is driving their own Corvette against the player's.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Supermarionation]]
* Lady Penelope Crichton in ''WesternAnimation/{{Thunderbirds}}''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:VideoGames]]

!!Pilots

[[folder:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* Kallen's [[HumongousMecha Guren]] in ''Anime/CodeGeass'' came equipped with a motorbike-like pilot seat, for no apparent reason other than to invoke this trope. The Guren's mass-production derivative, the Akatsuki, has the same cockpit. Plenty of female pilots too.

[[/folder]]
