Default Re: Are You Riding The Right Bike?

I scored scored 3 moxie, 10 zeal, and -3 pomp!

41% on moxie

87% on zeal

2% on pomp



I don't want an fjr1300.



My current project is a YSR stock class race bike, beginner.



The DR-Z400SM does look like fun.

Default I guess not

Yamaha YZF R1 !!?

I scored 7 moxie, 9 zeal, and 2 pomp!



Either I am in denial, or this test is off-base.



I ride a 2002 Ducati ST4s sans saddlebags.



Big bore race-reps are cool, but not really something I would buy.



Hell...what do I know?

Nope, your attorney will have a whole garage full of bikes.

Good test, only my personality says one thing while multiple knee reconstruction surgurys say something else...



My Buell phase is over, the new love of my life is an '05 Multistrada... easily the most comfortable moto I've ever gotten a leg over.

Default Nah, jsut go for crash bars...

The Givi or SW Motec crash bars give the WeeStrom a nice "baby Dakar" look.

Default Opinions...

Cruisers handle horribly. A standard is so much nicer. Myself, I like the SV and Monster, the Buells just don't appeal to me (and I've ridden both SVs and Buells).

[*]"Harley 883 Sportster



You scored 3 moxie, 4 zeal, and -3 pomp!

You scored dead center average, lacking any of the personality quirks that normally drive people to motorcycling.



However, if you do ride, statistics would suggest that you are destined for a Harley-Davidson, probably something in the Softail line . . .

that test is, well, strange.



even tho' i checked the "i can't stand harleys" box, it assigned me an 883. and even tho' i've been riding since 1961 and average 15K+ miles a year, it tells me to "choose a bike that won't hold you back."



excuse me? my current bike (a bmw r1100rsl) is essentially perfect for what i do: daily commuting, weekend rides in northern california, and occasional trips of a week or so. i swap the narrow city bags for the big touring bags for trips (or to carry medical charts back and forth to the office) or just leave them and the top case off if i'm interested in minimizing weight.



an 883? puh-leeze!!!

Don't feel bad. I ride a Vulcan 800 Classic and it said I should be riding an FJ1300. I was hoping for a R1200GS. I guess it's not that far off...
