You tell me. I have over 200K miles on several motorcycles, from my first, a 1979 HD Wideglide, to what I'm currently on, a 2011 HD Streetglide. Been coast to coast, Canada, The Keys, Cali to Maine. Also have been on countless poker runs and day trips.

That's too much thinking!! I have four bikes, ride because I enjoy motorcycles and riding them. I avoid Starbucks and could care less what I look like. I have never bought anything Joe Rocket or Icon. I have a dual sport and as an earlier poster said, they're the funnest.

I'll nibble a bit...

I've only been riding since mid-2011...scooter, first, interjecting motorcycle, then more motorcycle with some scooter, and currently motorcycle only; I'm no biker...i'm no scooterist...I'm a rider (as in I enjoy riding without the stereotypical labeling that is associated with the different subgroups)

I have had Sportbikes, cruisers, a Harley, BMW's, Dualsports,MX bikes over the last 25 years and wouldn't call myself a biker or rider. Don't really care what someone else wants to call me.

After I started Roadracing 12 years ago the only street riding I do is commuting to work on my KLR. I don't think I have taken a pleasure ride in the last two or three years.

The only thing I want to be called, is to the Podium smile

I know a rider when I see one, and I know a non-rider when I see him, too

I think the big difference is if you know about the motorcycle and how it works or do you just sit on it and when it stops, do you call somebody to come fix it. I am in "costume" capital of Daytona Beach. I see a lot of Bikers cant even change their oil and the chain thingy-yuk? I am a rider.

I'm 50, first dirt bike at 7. Been a dirt rider ever since. It's my first love. I also have a SV1000s Suzuki that I occasionally ride. Still more interested in the dirt bike stuff. My current bike is a KTM 380EXC with tag! What fun!!!

Does that make me a true filthy biker? Yes, I think it does...

As for the HD brand, not for me, unless it's a Buell Ulysses.
