+1 I agree with this completely. I don't ride in the rain intentionally. I don't ride when I will freeze my butt off or take a chance on hitting ice but even when I am driving my car, I would RATHER be riding my bike.I consider myself a real rider. I ride when I can. I ride for transportation but mostly just to ride. I don't care how much gas I burn (sorry to the environment) and I wave to any rider I see, I am no better than them and the other way around.
Your either a 'real rider", pretending to not to be a pretender or you are a pretender?
Let's find out with this poll.
To some extent I agree that dividing people into real bikers and posers is silly, but the fact is there are a lot of posers who dress the part, ride an impressive bike, know all about motorcycling because they read a lot of motorcycle magazines and online forums, and they may even ride a little bit better than average; but they're still just posers, because in every conversation they try to make it sound like they're a lot more experienced and a lot more talented than they actually are. To me, that's the real difference between a 'real rider' and a poser. Some posers have 10 years experience and average 20,000 miles a year, but they're still posers because they casually brag about doing things they've never actually done.If you ask me, anybody who takes this survey seriously, who wants to divide riders into "REAL" and otherwise, is a poser, trying to conceal feeling of inadequacy.
A REAL biker rides everyday, … 365 days a year.
A REAL biker doesn't even own a car.
There are 45 million REAL bikers in Vietnam, a country of 96 million people. There are about 2 million cars registered in Vietnam.
But in Vietnam they aren't called "REAL bikers", they are called....

There's way too much macho posturing in motorcycling communities. What a bunch of BS!
any pole that gets one to lighten up and crack a smile is a good pole. especally it there is a blond lady dancing around it.Best post of all. Ride when you want and can. The person labeling you is probably a narcissistic PIA. That’s my label....lol.
