Default Oh, great, I'm with THEM

So I've got a Harley 883 Iron. And if I could, I'd also buy a Triumph Bonneville and a Guzzi V7 Stone, which is stupid, because they're pretty much the same bike.

I get the latest issue of Motorcyclist in the mail, and all three are reviewed in a comparo. The title?

"Hipster Rides".

GACK!

Default It's OK

Hipster is a compliment. You may be more of a Rocker though. I'm just guessing.

Well, of course. But that begs the question - is Rocker hip?

The funny thing is, I've dug the cafe thing since I was a pup. After my first starter bike, my bikes have always been (very loosely defined, here) budget neo-cafes. I was bummed to see it become fashionable.

Fingers crossed that regular Wranglers and ash-grey t-shirts never become hip.

Default Are YOU a Hipster?

Do you have now, or have you ever owned, a beret?

Have you ever operated a motorcycle wearing a scarf?

Does ANY of your riding apparel feature a checkerboard pattern (or the Union Jack)?

Have you ever worn your boots over your pants?

Have you ever transported a dog, cat, or other domesticated animal on your motorcyle (excluding chickens)? Did said animal wear motorcycle apparel?

Have you ever transported a female on your motorcycle who wore black nail polish on her fingers or toes?

If you answered "Yes" to one or more of these questions, you are indeed a "Hipster."

I'd like to look like that for one day. Provided I had a mirror and a baker's dozen of AA batteries.

I've always considered myself a Cafe` Racer type, I rode a 250 Bultaco Matador with clip ons and my feet on the rear pegs to High School, my Shovelhead chopper had Akront rims, Conti Blitz's and a 'glass JP Norton front fender....Hell I've painted my OWN fingernails black..

Who gives a sh*t what a bunch of retro Nancy boys think? we were doing the Ton on whatever two wheeler we could get our hands on while they were still crapping their knickers...

If you won't drink anything lighter than Brown Ale unless under extreme duress, if you'd rather have fish n chips than a cheeseburger, If you believe Anfield Park is the center of the universe and that LFC not Man. U Rules then you're in no matter what you ride.

Let the youngsters play dress up all they like, they'll be back to flannel shirts and knee shorts before long anyway.
