I must not be a real biker either ... But I sure do like riding my lawnmower.

I'm sitting here with my OCC sleeveless shirt on. If that don't make me a real biker, I don't know what will.

I have 2 helmets. Both full face. One has graphics.
My bike is usually spotless, except on a Sunday after a long ride.
I make it a point to buy a HD tshirt at every dealer I stop at.
My friends all ride sportbikes.
I've just spent the past hour looking at Suzuki SV resources to figure out if an SV for sale locally is worth the asking price (not by a long shot).
I use a backpack because saddlebags, IMO, look like ass on a Sportster.
I wave.
I took the MSF course.
I always wear boots, jeans, armored riding jacket (3 different ones for different weather conditions), and Alpinestar SP-1 race gloves.
I do all my own work on my bike.
I'm a HOG member.
I don't have tattoos.
I cut my hair off 8 years ago.

So, am I or am I not a biker?

To answer your question - No, you are not a biker!
You are a 2 full faced helmeted, jeans, jacket, boot wearing, short hair, tattooed, hog member, back packer, multi Harley shirt wearing, Suzuki looking, clean Sportster, safe riding guy who waves at people.
Oh! what the heck! On second thought, Russ, you look like a biker to me!
