Yamaha YZF R1



You scored 6 moxie, 8 zeal, and 1 pomp!

You're addicted to speed, but have the knowledge and experience to match. Although you like to win, you don't really care so much about competing with others as much as competing with yourself.

Your bike is the Yamaha YZF R1. Given how easily the rear wheel on this beast spins up coming out of turns, it is fortunate that you constantly work to improve your skills. (I've seen more R1s crash at track days than any other bike.)



It was a close decision with the Suzuki GSXR1000, but your personality seemed a bit more R1-ish. (But hey, I could be wrong. Its only a silly test.)



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



You scored higher than 73% on moxie



You scored higher than 73% on zeal



You scored higher than 40% on pomp





I substituted the Busa instead, but it was pretty close.

Yamaha FJR1300

You scored 5 moxie, 7 zeal, and -1 pomp!

You have the characteristics of a master street rider. On the way to work, your love for riding sometimes leads you to take the long way. The 50-miles-of-back-roads long way. You live for the perfect road, and plan vacations around riding.

You need a bike that can handle your addiction to the twisties as well as comfortably carry two on a weekend trip through the mountains. Your bike is the FJR1300. Can I borrow it someday?



You scored higher than 55% on moxie

You scored higher than 91% on zeal

You scored higher than 11% on pomp



I ride an 89 RZ350, and occasionaly go for a zip on my wife's SV650S. FJR1300 sounds right in 20 years.

Close. I always wear protection. I did wad it and had a knee operation. I'm now taking it (SV1000s) to the track.

600cc Sportbike

You scored 6 moxie, 5 zeal, and -2 pomp!

You are a squid. Your bike is a 600cc Japanese Sportbike. Take your pick, it really doesn't matter, since you're going to wad it.



You are the primary source of extra bits of fairing plastic on eBay.



When you're riding in the mountains, you have a hard time keeping up with that Olde Pharte on a Triumph Thruxton without blowing the centerline in the twisties and going WFO on every straight. (You're not a bad rider, but you're just not as good as you think you are.)



On a hot day, you're likely to be seen weaving through highway traffic at warp speed, wearing sneakers and a t-shirt blowing up your back.



The good news for you is that this is a temporary phase in your riding career. You will either (a) buzzsplat or (b) become more acutely conscious of your own mortality after a few minor but eye-openingly lucky crashes.



Take it to the track. You'll live longer.

Thanks for the link (I think).

Yamaha R-1!?



6 Moxie

10 Zeal

1 Pomp



Not the bike I would have thought. My guess was R1150R.

I better start getting insurance quotes.

Yamaha YZF R1 with the same drivel about the GSXR 1000 also. I scored 6, 7,and 1. Too bad the test didn't include a question about bad backs. Funny thing is I would like a Hayabusa VWW

Unless you're a congenital hunch back, I would recommend the R1150R.
