"Yamaha FJR1300. You scored 4 moxie, 8 zeal, and -3 pomp!"



Well, my current ride is a Hyosung GV250. That's a 250cc cruiser. For my next bike, I was planning on a Suzuki Burgman or Honda SilverWing. We shall see...

Harley 883 Sportster

You scored 0 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, ... A far more reasonably priced taste of the Harley Kool-Aid is the 883 Sporty, ---->



which I have - dead accurate for this MOron!

Incidently, I notice that many MO posters above are reporting eerily similar "moxie", "zeal" and "pomp" scores.



From 1 to 10, MO posters seem to report "moxie" scores near the middle of the range (4 or 6), "zeal" scores near the high end (9 or 11) and "pomp" scores at the bottom (-1 or +1).



Does that say something about the typical MO poster? Is there a typical MO demographic? Are we all destined to ride Yamaha FJR1300s? Is that the most practical bike out there? Is that why it keeps winning MO shootouts?

Bull corn. A Sportster 833 because I don't cut people off lane split or have never had the chance to do some of the things they asked about. Well the second time I answered differently and scored as followed:

Ducati 996

You scored 8 moxie, 6 zeal, and 6 pomp!

You exhibit an over exuberance in all respects that cannot be satisfied. Your attitude and ego are over the top, yet you actually have the skills to match. Its infuriating. People would hate you, but you're too damned nice. You always ride like its your last day to live, and leave bystanders vaguely aroused.

Your bike is the Ducati 996. Sex on wheels.











My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:



You scored higher than 93% on moxie



You scored higher than 53% on zeal



You scored higher than 98% on pomp



Tell the wife I'm going to the Ducati dealership tomorrow to fulfill what science has predicted. Couldn't have had it better (the second time that is)

883 Sporster? 83% Pomp?



Why am I looking at left over Triumph Sprint RS models? I'll bet the test forgot to factor in my bi-polar tendencies!



Hey, if it's good enough for Earth it's good enough for me.

Well, I guess my FZ1 isn't too far off that. Where does my DRZ fit in though>

that was just stupid. It's a sad day indeed when "2000+ miles /year" is seen as an active motorcyclist. I'm sorry, but anything less than 5000 miles/year is a sorry excuse of a poser.
