Biker? No.

Scooter Tramp. Yes.

Even then. One cannot define,label, or control me.

This thread was good for a Friday night grin.

Thanks.

If you ride a 2 wheeled motorized vehicle known as a motorcycle you are a biker ! If you ride a moped you are born to be mild . If you ride an Ironhead you are a gluten for punishment . Well my wife thinks I am idiot ! But what does she know . I own 5 bikes and If I had more garage space it would increase . Its December and I already have throttle itch

I have 3 hemets, 1 modular, 2 x 3/4 with face shields (and may still have 1 residing in the US) [As long as you can complain about the lack of freedom occasionally, helmets are OK]
I have 3 bikes, only one is a harley and it's an EFI. One's a Honda [All bikes].
I wash my bikes when they are bug splattered or covered in red dirt or mud
I wear a backpack when I take my camera [We all adapt, and occasionally wipe the grunge off]
I have taken several safety courses and will continue to take them
I rarely wave, but nod a lot [Consider teaching].
I used a bike intercom system on a ride once and I liked it [As long as it doesn't conflict with the voices in your head].
All that and you may or may not still have a helmet elsewhere in the world? Young Lady, you are a World Class Biker.
