I wear whatever I want..when I want
I have about half a dozen helmets
I rarely wash my sporty... it's gets freshened up more than it gets washed.
Friends don't let friends ride a HONDA
I have my own shop
I don't wear a back pack
I wave when I feel like it
I've never taken a safety course (I've taken a few other things tho )

so am I still not a biker????

Who gives a sh*t ... the whole idea of ridin is FREEDOM...... that's means doin what ya want NOT what someone says ya gotta..

Any time anyone brings up the biker thing to me,I let them know that I am not a biker.
I am a rider.
My wife and I ride mostly alone,and dress as we like,and do as we like.
No fashon show,no boose,no drugs.We keep our clothes on,unless we are alone with each other.
We are not out to impress anyone,we are not impressed or influenced by others who try to be something or someone they are not.
So there I said it.
I,We are not bikers.
We just have a lot of fun on our sporty every chance we get.
Don

I'm definitely a biker; In addition to my Sporty I have a Specialized S-Works with a full XTR gruppo and a custom built Iron Horse Victory with Campy components and I'm not afraid to wear Lycra
