Women vs Motorcycles

An avid cycle fan once told me that the inventor of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle, Mr. Arthur Davidson, died and went to heaven. When he arrived at the Golden Gate, St. Peter told Arthur, "Because you've been such a good person and your motorcycles have changed the world, your reward is that you can hang out with anyone you choose to up here in Heaven."

Mr. Davidson thought about it for a moment and then said, "I want to hang out with God." St. Peter then took Arthur to the Throne Room, and introduced him to God. God recognized Arthur and commented, "Okay, so you were the one who invented motorcycles, eh?!" Arthur said, "Yes, Sir, that's me alright..."

God then said to Arthur, "Well, what's the big deal inventing something that's pretty unstable, makes noise and pollution, and can't run without a road?" Arthur, who was apparently embarrassed hesitated to answer, but finally spoke, "Excuse me, Sir, but aren't you the inventor of woman?" God said, "Yes indeed, I am He that created the woman." "Well", said Arthur, "professional to professional, you have some major design flaws in your invention,

  1. There's too much inconsistency in the front-end protrusion;
  2. It chatters constantly at high speeds;
  3. 3. Most of the rear ends are too soft and wobble too much;
  4. The intake is placed way too close to the exhaust;
  5. And the maintenance costs are outrageous!", said Arthur.

God replied, "Hmmmm, you may have some good points there, but, hold on." God then went to his Celestial super-computer*, typed in a few words and waited for the results. The computer printed out a slip of paper and God read it.

"Well, it may be true that my invention is flawed somewhat," God said to Arthur, "but, according to these numbers, more men are riding my invention than yours".
