Are You A Motorcyclist Or A Biker?

Now before anyone bashes me about bikers or motorcyclists let me explain.  They are merely just different groups that both ride motorcycles.  Period.  It is not brand or type specific.  It’s just simply different kinds of riders is all and it’s funny.

Now on to the post!  I saw this on a motorcycle forum and they probably got it from somewhere else.  So now I’m sharing it here.  Just ask yourself: Am I a biker or a motorcyclist?

If you wear a full-face or modular helmet, you are probably a motorcyclist.
If you wear a “beanie” helmet with a tag inside that says “for costume use only”, you are probably a biker.

If you own a GPS unit, you are probably a motorcyclist.
If all of your riding gear, without exception, is black, you are probably a biker.

If you have no idea what “Screamin’ Eagle” refers to, you are probably a motorcyclist.
If you have no idea what “Aerostich” refers to, you are probably a biker.

If you spent more money on tires last year than you did on clothes, you are probably a motorcyclist.
If you planned your last five vacations around Sturgis, you are probably a biker.

If you own a “Fog City” faceshield, you are probably a motorcyclist.
If you think it’s normal for all five stops on the poker run to be at bars, you are probably a biker.

If you watch the Weather Channel to decide how to dress for your ride tomorrow, you are probably a motorcyclist.
If you watch the Weather Channel to decide whether or not to ride tomorrow, you are probably a biker.

Okay, now for the similarities:

If you put aftermarket pipes on your bike for a better sound or better performance, you could be either.

If you belong to the AMA because they fight for your rights, you could be either.

If you read two or three motorcycle magazines every month, you could be either.

If your Christmas cards have a picture of a motorcycle on them, you could be either.

And perhaps most importantly, if you absolutely love your motorcycle, and love to ride, you definitely could be either.

Note that you will see both in motorcycles of ALL brands!
