Every subculture is saturated with different kinds of personalities and temperaments. The biker subculture is no different. So, it’s time to ask the question, which one are you?
You’ll see this person on eBay or Craigslist with an ad that claims his wife didn’t approve of his brand new motorcycle, which is why he’s selling it for a really low price. Regardless if this is true or not, all you really care about is that he has the bike you want and you’d do anything to get it. Just make sure this fairly new, low-mileage bike lives up to your expectations in every respect.
This rider is both annoying and cute. Think of this rider as a newborn calf, still getting a feel for its legs and its surroundings. Don’t let their high energy levels weigh you down. You’ve been in their shoes before, so you’d understand how incredibly exciting and frightening the whole biker life is when you have absolutely no idea what to do or what to expect.
The Hardcore Commuter
Everything you’ll see in an Aerostitch catalog, this rider probably has it… along with a plethora of luggage in the market. It’s almost guaranteed that his bike will be a BMW sports tourer and he’ll ride in whatever weather, come hell or high water. He’ll only pause to rest or when it gets too difficult to see. Hardcore, I tell you.
