The Squid

The Squid

You’ve got a cutting-edge sports bike, perhaps a BMW S1000RR, and it scares you silly, although you’d never admit it. You’d be happier on a Honda CBR500R, if only you’d let yourself own one.

The ‘Polite’ man

The ‘Polite’ man

You’d never get on your bike without head-to-toe hi-vis. You’ve got a ‘Polite notice’ vest and sometimes you leave your hazards on while filtering. When you were kid, you wrote to Jimmy Savile asking if he’d fix it for you to be a policeman. Hid didn’t.

The ‘Gently Bently’

The ‘Gently Bently’

You love riding, and you haven’t managed to do it for this many years by acting like a tit. You see any crash as at least partly your fault, because the environment is the environment and it’s your job to survive it.

The new-wave traditionalist

The new-wave traditionalist

Motorcycles aren’t just about performance. They have to look right too. You’re into bobbers, café racers and scramblers and the probability you have a beard and tattoos is high. You’re one of the most important and refreshing things to happen to motorcycling in years. Some of you are even women.

The complete knobber

The complete knobber

You’ve had barely any training but you cut through tiny gaps in fast-moving traffic like a world champion doughnut. You might ride a scooter or a 125 sports bike. You’re pushing your luck every time you do.

The proper speed freak

The proper speed freak

You ride fast but you know what you’re doing (you hope). You’ve got track experience and you worry about your licence every time you leave the house.

The GSer

The GSer

You’ve got an adventure bike but it’s not for going off-road, or for having adventures. You have it for its qualities as a road bike. You wear an adventure suit because you don’t want to completely destroy the illusion.

The true adventurer

The true adventurer

You’ve got an off-road bike and you do go off-road. You love green-laning and see it as safer than road riding (although you’re competent on the road too). You’d like to ride to Mongolia. You’re a rare breed.
