We not all just 'Riders' at the end of the day? :lol:

 

Apparently not .... scorps was complaining last night that this site had become a 'motorcyclists' site ..to quote -  'all pipe and slippers'   ...whereas she was a 'biker' .... defined by the fact that in the old days 'wild parties' were attended (I'm not sure what 'wild' means..... perhaps some Vimto was spilled on the hearth-rug? :winkie:)

Pansie

I'm too much of a wuss to be a biker.


Although I have be partial to breaking up the odd pub brawl - when a scrawny runt gets in the way they just can't bring themselves to risk breaking it.:lol:

The whole thing

has been messed around too much by the media anyway, trying to pigeonhole everyone into neat little boxes! I am not a number! I am a free man!  I choose motorcycles because it followed on from belting about on a bicycle and was faster and more exciting and dynamic, I had to pass car test to help improve employment prospects, and though the four wheelers hold my interest too, they can never replace the purity of something that is so close to natural movement. Take me away from the bike/motorcycle but you can't get the biker/motorcyclist out of me!

For me

It's an easy definition and I know i'm a biker...

BIKER:

Someone who lives and breathes bikes, considers them in most aspects of their life, goes on big bike trips, possibly follows the racing, has many biker pals, prob is on web forums like this, rides for fun whenever possible.

MOTORCYCLIST:

Someone who simply owns a motorcycle. More than likely just for getting to work or the like.


Someone said something about being 'annoraky' earlier..... Aren't we all......?  Abit?

:wink:

Defiantly

BIKER. I own a car but if I'm not carrying people or heavy/bulky stuff I ride regardless of weather. The black leather is purely co-incidental:smile. I even keep a bike at my sisters farm in the algarve so I don't get withdrawl symptoms on holiday.

flip the coin and it lands on its edge

In the UK I was a biker (rallies, bike meets, track days, ride outs, making and modding bikes etc). Over here in italy most of these opportunities are not an option (no rallies, no real bike meets, very few track days, legislation against modding bikes etc). Still do the occassional ride out but it tends to be something of a formal affair and looses some of its appeal. I fear that at the moment I'm border line motorcyclist (I ride every day but thats out of neccessity because of congestion and time).

Blimey, this site is slow!!

I was shut out for an hour or more after clicking 'Submit'. How are we supposed to get any spontaneous banter going? I copied the text first so, a bit late but -

Skycat, I'll stick with the Hob Nobs. :unsure:

Munro or Corbet: some sort of Scottish hill classification?


Taken from Munromagic site:

The Munros are the highest of Scotland's mountains, 283 mountain tops named after the man who first catalogued them, Sir Hugh Munro. The Munros are among the finest mountains in Scotland.

The Corbetts are the equivalent mountains with altitudes between 2500ft and 3000ft and The Grahams between 2000ft and 2500ft. Whilst smaller in stature many Corbetts and Grahams rival Munros for walking and climbing.

It all Davec fault, he walks more than me, and I was bitten by the bug.   It's knackering and at times I almost want to give up, but never do.  But once at the top the reward is the amazing views.:biggrin:
