hey pacanis--------
you don't need to be a 1 percenter (tho' there's nothing wrong with that, lol) to be a "biker"...............
but you DO need a motor, otherwise you are a "cyclist"

.....just my opinion

And I'm still more of a Biker than most Hardly riders these days. After using a Scooter for transportation for about two decades it's not something that goes completely away.

*Wife spent the first 6 years of our marriage crying about Virago. I was getting too Squiddish, got in that last bit of trouble on Her, parked her. Wife has spent the last 8 years crying about not having a bike. Sheesh!

Looking to getting another bike, Wife wants a Road Cruiser, I'm pestering my friend to cut loose with his 650 Maxim. I need a 'refresher course' before getting a 800 pound Road Barge.

Funny thing is I'm looking to getting 2 wheels powered by my legs first, for my physical health.

Actually there is something very wrong with being a 1%

A true 1% is a sociopath. These are people you do not want to associate with. I know because I've been around a few.

A Poser 1% is .... sad. Thats the nicest thing I can say about them.

Don't care for them. Too chicken to ride. My sister and bil are die hard hawg riders though. Or, they were. Now that bil has cancer, they don't ride as much. They use to go on rides with their chapter once a week on locals and twice monthly on long rides. They went to Virginia a couple of years ago. Hurricane Katrina followed them all the way back. They missed it by a day through Florida and the southern states. They absolutely love their rides though. Wish I was a braver person, LOL

Yes, I rode today and for the last few days, every day, and sometimes twice in a day. But the weather has been beautiful. I'll ride through October, perhaps early November, but then Betty goes back to the shop for more winter customizations.

Yeah, but I'm still old school. I use the term biker to mean biker, not just someone who rides. Someone who has their HOG paraphernalia and Easy Rider poster in the living room, not the rec room. Although I suppose I should broaden my terminology with all these scooter riders on the road now

"1 percenter", now there's an old Hunter S Thompson phrase taken from an old AMA stat I would guess a lot more than 1% of the US population ride now, especially judging from that Roar on the Shore I recently posted on. All walks of life, and all makes of bikes, which is pretty cool.

You talkin' 'bout liquor cycles (pronounced like the cycle in bicycle versus motorcycle).

lol, where'd you come up with that term?
Cuz they ride from their house to the liquor store, with just enough room under the seat for a couple bottles?

There's a guy who rides down my road on an actual scooter every day it's decent outside, for a couple years now. Last year he had a yellow one, this year it's red. He does it twice a day and it's usually an hour or so and he's headin' back in the other direction. No coffee shop in town... no idea where's he's riding.... errr, I mean scootin' to.
Funny thing is, he has a big Goldwing, too. Guess he prefers the scooter for scootin'

No, because when someone loses their license due to a DUI they can still ride a scooter around here - hence, liquor cycle. That term has been around for a VERY long time here.
