  • How to Identify a Man by his Motorcycle

    Honda .... This guy likes reliability over most other things. Not very adventurous but he always gets where he is going

    Suzuki ... Guys who understand what a real bike is, but can't afford one

    Kawasaki ... Most Kawasaki riders end up institutionalized. The experience is awesome, but life isn't like that and ultimately they succumb to depressive illnesses.

    Yamaha ... Balanced, mature but you have to be wary for the ones who feel they should own a BMW instead.

    BMW .... BMW riders are like their bikes. They trade upon a glorious past, they are eternally optimistic about the future, but unfortunately we live in the present. These guys are the ones who exhibit hope over experience .... and they live close to a dealership.

    Harley Davidson .... I never mock the afflicted. It's cruel


    Ducati - he is attracted by shiny beautiful things and thinks he's courageous, but once the first major service test comes, he is apt to unload her for something less demanding.

    KTM - he has a warped sense of beauty and swayed not by the initial looks but what is under the hood. Tends to hang on long after the scratches and dents have faded and the initial shine worn away.

    Triumph - the attitude and pace is more important than what's under the hood. Playful and loyal, sometimes too a fault. Totally original... just like the rest of the pack.

    MotoGuzzi - this is the guy who wears kilts, sandals with socks, and doesn't give a rats ass how he looks. Once an owner, he's in it for the long haul. Known for extensive body hair (not always a compliment)
    He who shall, so shall he who.

            Absolutely agree with the desire for reliability, but after nearly filling my map with two years efforts alone, while holding down a full-time job, my wife would have a bit of issue with the Not very adventurous part. My door at work is filling up with mapped routes of "latest multi-day rides"; none for much more reason that to do it. (800 miles this past weekend to pick up a collector's bottle of whiskey for a son.) And none of the GW owners I know personally can be considered wallflowers. Quite the contrary, Honda riders are adventurous, and purpose driven in not wanting to waste time during a trip being a mechanic.

                      I guess I am an afflicted guy and likes reliability. I am very adventurous and always get where I'm going! Must be a multiple personality trait.

                                I have a Honda, a Kawasaki, and a Harley. I'm not sure if that makes me a well rounded man of taste and distinction… or just schizo
