    Big Al on Sons of Anarchy and other "biker" shows

    Bap, I just saw your comment for the first time. The same thing has happened to me a few times, but when some one ask me if I am a biker, I ask them "what is a biker?" and depending on what they tell me then I answer yes or not. but most of the time my answer is no.

    I love to ride, so much that it is an obsession. If it wasn't because I have a wife and 2 children I love very much, I would sell everything I can't carry in my bike and become a nomad, lol I would honestly leave everything behind and travel the world. so yeah, I am obsessed, lol.

    on the looks, yeah I personally do not not look like the stereotypical biker while off my bike. If I am ridding to and from work, I am wearing my ACU uniform and the mandatory safety gear (DOT Helmet, Hi-Vis Riding Jacket, Full finger gloves, Eye-Pro, and Leather Boots).

    Once off post I wear just jeans and a t-shirt + glasses for around town ridding, but If am going far then I wear full gear. I have kids that depend on me.

    Big Al on Sons of Anarchy and other "biker" shows

    Hey Big Al. I feel funny calling you that because I'm known as "Big Al" in my world.

    What you wrote makes a lot of sense, I saw it posted in the forum. I posted something along the lines that I didn't believe a TV show creates a stereotype, but with a little more thought I see your point. I'm not necessarily stereotyped on my bike because I don't wear patches, leather, or anything else that would indicate a membership or club affiliation. I usually just wear jeans and a denim long sleeve shirt. When I step off the bike I blend in anywhere. Sooo, I see your point that if you LOOK like an 1%er then you might be stereotyped as one.

    As for the show, I've never seen it nor really have a desire to. I guess I cannot make an intelligent opinion about the show itself.

    As for the definition of a "biker" I don't have a clue. I was at a gas station a couple months ago and this chick asked me if she could take a picture of my bike. I said sure, why not. She proceeded to tell me her x got killed on a Sportster and she like collecting photos of them when she sees them. Then she asked me, "Are you a biker-biker?" I told her that I was not sure what a biker-biker was, but that I do ride a bike most of them time when I'm not working so I guess I'm a biker in that regard. To this day I'm not sure about any of the definitions I have heard. If it is a lifestyle, then I'm probably not one because I'm pretty square when it comes to family and responsibilities. If it is a passion then I probably am one because I'd rather be riding than just about anything else. Bottom line is that I don't think there is a definition for the word, but a people can define THEMSELVES as a biker by living the concept they have created in their own mind. Really that is about the best I can figure the term.

    Lifestyle: Blast From The Past!

    Did not know about the surgery. Hope you heal quickly and can get back on the road. My job requires that I use my car at work, and I work 5 days a week, yet I still get over 1000 miles a month in. I get real antsy when I cannot ride. Sometimes the wife tells me to get out and go for a ride when she sees I'm getting restless.

    Just don't do too much too fast. Your feet ain't nothing to be playin' with ... let it heal dude then post up some ride reports. Lots of us read these blogs even if we don't always comment on them.
