Love them. Only the ones with the black jacket and black pants and black boots with a helmet.

They look so mysterious, so sexy, I wish one would come and take me away somewhere and make love in the dark.

Sorry if TMI.


Like the one in this pic:




Not those bikies with a ponytail and beer belly -- those I find disgusting.

got no beef with those who ride, just bought myself a new car recently but I want to save up some dough and get myself a bike as well, not sure which one I want to get though...

Well; I learned to ride at 16, and since 1995 I havn't owned anythng with 4 wheels.
I've been in 4 wrecks, the first one my fault whle learning motocross techniques from my Dad. The other 3, were not my fault. All 3 motorists were older and all immediately said the same thing: " I didn't see you!"
I own 2 bikes:
A 2009 Suzuki TU-250-X, known as the ST-250 I think eerywhere but America, and a 2012 Ducati Multistrada 1200.
That's my background...
I have a saying; There's only 2 kinds of riders & bikers; those that have wrecked, and those that will wreck![/i
There's only real kind of motorcyclist and that's the person who has wrecked, learned, got back on and keeps riding
!
I don't think much of the riders who act on the edge wearing shorts, sandals, and t-shirt, or less. I see plenty of them.
I also don't get along well with the stereotypical Harley owner, who I find brags more about their riding time, and actually can't ride well worth a damn! The worst are the older folks-yeah, older than me-, who buy a large bike they have no business being on, trying to act out some role from Sons of Anarchy! Again, I see plenty of them.
I've been in ridng clubs, but for a group of people who consider themselves freedom loving rebels; they make a lot of B.S. rules for themselves! As such, I'm no longer intersted in clubs. I prefer to ride what I want, go where I want, how I want, dressed as I please.
Yeah, there are some bikers/and riders who beg for trouble, and some get it.
But most of us I believe are very safety conscious, and as the biggest danger on the road, for me, comes not from hot-dog riding but from cagers who don't see us. I tend to be a real kiss-ass on my bike in traffic. ;)lol
As Lone Wolf and others said, being a motorcyclist takes a whole diferent mindset from driving a car. Incidentaly, I'm not a good 'driver'! lol
I do occationaly like to ride in the 3 digit range, but I also wear protective clothing. I've done forced lane splitting, like the time a truck pulled out behind another truck from the right, I was in the left, just as I was about to pass them, and had to quickly split the lane and go between the 2, as there was no time for brakes. Ok I admit it, I've done that to pass 2 old fogies doing a sub speed limit drag race too.

I share the road with other vehicles. Including ordinary bicycles. I see motorcyclists as I see any other vehicle.

They are my prey.

Do you actually stalk them? I used to stalk and terrorize douches on the road.

Highly recommend you take an MSF (Motorcycle Safety Foundation) course before purchasing a bike; you will benefit far more greatly then learning on you're own and will lower you're insurance payments when successfully completed. Also, many make the mistake of buying the biggest, baddest looking bike(600cc +) and take no consideration on the development of skill required to ride those kinds of bikes.
And remember, always keep the sticky side down. :thumbsup:
