    Maybe leaning toward cages but honorable mentions:

    Clutch: "Passive Restraints"

    Ministry: "Jesus Built My Hotrod"

    Danzig: "She Rides"

    Hank III/Assjack: "Tenn Driver"

    Okay, maybe the last two just lean toward raising hell in general.

    Motorcycle bitch, by Skyhooks from the 1970's album "Living in the Seventies".


    I gotta motorcycle bitch with a fast machine
    Well she struck it rich and she's awful mean
    Five forward gears and she's water-cooled
    She sure looks crazy but she sure ain't fooled

    She rides a bike like she rides a man
    Just hold on tight and don't give a damn
    Slip the clutch and gimme full throttle
    Open your legs pass another bottle

    She scrapes those pegs and she winds up fast
    Hold on tight with your legs this ride could be your last
    I never seen her brake I ain't never seen her mend
    Ain't no mistake cos death is round the bend

    She rides a bike like she rides a man...etc.

    Don't carry no freight don't carry no pillion
    She's gotta Triumph V8 and she's one in a million
    If you're lookin' for kicks better step aside
    She knows all the tricks just watch her ride

    She rides a bike like she rides a man...etc.

    "The Way" by Fastball. Not necessarily motorcycle, but great for getting up and going.

    I wish they would release the movie to video, but R'Redford doesn't like it!

    Also, from the same movie: "Rollin' Free"

    Rollin' Free, just the sun and the wind and the road and me
    I don't wanna be tied to a load that I can't carry over the road
    Just wanna hear that thunder roar on trails that ain't been rode before
    don't put no chains on me, I'm rollin' free

    Now I'm not worried about yesterday and let tomorrow bring what may
    let everything be as it will be
    Cuz all i need is my machine and a little high-octane gasoline
    just get your hands off me, I'm rollin' free.

    My daughter had me listen to this one; yeah, it's Owl City, but the kid's a pretty good lyricist. It's an okay motorbiking song: "Cave In"

    Please take a long hard look
    Through your text book cause I'm history
    When I strap my helmet on I'll be long gone
    Cause I've been dying to leave
    Yeah, I'll ride the range
    And hide all my loose change in my bedroom
    Cause riding a dirt bike down a turn pike
    Always takes its toll on me

    I've had just about enough
    Of cloaked diamonds in the rough
    Because my back-bone is paper thin
    Get me out of this cavern or I'll cave in
    (I'll cave in, I'll cave in...)

    If the bombs go off the sun will still be shining
    (The sun will still be shining)
    Because I've heard it said that
    Every mushroom cloud has a silver lining
    (Though I'm always under mining to deep to know)
    Swallow a drop of gravel and blacktop
    Cause the road tastes like Wintergreen
    The wind and rain smell of oil and octane
    Mixed with stale gasoline

    I'll soak up the sound
    Try to sleep on the wet ground
    I'll get ten minutes give or take
    Cause I just don't foresee myself getting drowsy
    When cold integrity keeps me wide awake
    (Awake, awake, awake, awake...)

    Get me out of this cavern or I'll cave in
    (Cave in, cave in, cave in, cave in...)

    Get me out of this cavern or I'll cave in
    (Cave in, cave in, cave in, cave in...)

    I'll keep my helmet on
    Just in case my head caves in
    (In case my head caves in)
    Cause if my thoughts collapse
    Or my brain work snaps
    It'll make a mess like you wouldn't believe
    Tie my handle bars to the stars
    So I stay on track (so I stay on track)
    And if my intentions trail I'll wrench them away
    Then I'll take my leave and I won't even look back

    I won't even look back

    I was on a quest for good motorcycle songs a few years ago. My apologies if these have been posted already, but here are a couple of my favorites. The second one, unless I'm forgetting something, was the oldest motorcycle song I found. The third one is usually credited to Kid Prince Moore.

    I'm surprised nobody's dropped this one yet.

    Joe Satriani - I Just Wanna Ride


    :huh I suppose one could infer that he's on a bike, but there's nothing in the lyrics that indicate so.

    I can't believe no one has mentioned my all time favorite motorcycle song!
    I nominate it for ADVRIDER theme song!


    I take off time to time
    With those crazy friends of mine
    Head out on steel horses
    With wheels and we ride
    We burn up that road to old Mexico
    Blend in with the desert
    Just we amigos
    And we roll
    [Chorus:]
    Cowboys like us sure do have fun
    Racin' the wind, chasin' the sun
    Take the long way around back to square one
    Today we're just outlaws out on the run
    There'll be no regrets, no worries and such
    For cowboys like us
    We talk about livin', babies, and women
    All that we've lost and all we've been givin'
    We sing about true love, lie about things we ain't done
    Drink one more cold one, come mornin' get up
    And we roll
    [Chorus 2x]
    Cowboys like us
