Who are Motorcyclists?

Motorcyclists come in all different shapes, sizes, colors, and creeds.  There are men and women, young and old.  There are those who were born into a motorcycling family, and those who came upon it on thier own.  One might say that Harley owners all have lots of “disposable income” in order to be able to afford such an expensive luxury, but I have met many a biker for whom that is completely not the case.  A motorcyclist is a motorcyclist deep in the soul, and when that is the case they will make whatever sacrifices are needed in order to feed the need to have their knees in the breeze.

Right here in our moto-blogger community it is evident that motorcyclists come from all different levels of education and many kinds of occupations, such as those listed below:

  • Annuities company employee
  • Assembler of scientific measuring devices
  • Car salesman
  • Coffee shop owner
  • Dental hygienist
  • Interactive art director/web designer
  • Insurance adjuster
  • Motorcycle safety instructor
  • Motorcycle shop owner
  • Photojournalist
  • Plumber
  • Printing Estimator & Purchasing manager
  • Purchasing manager
  • Restaurant server 
  • Teacher - 5th grade
  • Teacher - high school math
  • Truck driver
  • Vehicle test engineer

  1. Great post. I know a few for sure, but I must admit, most would be guesses, so I’ll leave the rest up to the pros.

  2. If you e-mail us your answers and guesses you will be in first place by default.

  3. I appreciate your post, Lady Di. People get so hung up on differences and labeling everything. Whether we ride or not, people are more alike than different. Great reminder to concentrate on the common humanity.

  4. I filled out the list and sent it to the e-mail address. It was good to play cop and do some investigating again!

  5. Glad you had fun irondad! I enjoyed doing the investigation to put together the list too. I figure we’ve got to do something to occupy the time while there’s 3 feet of snow on the ground! Diversity is all about celebrating the differences between us, so why not learn a little more about each other and have something new to celebrate?! :-)

  6. Great idea for a post. I know at least two of them. LOL! I’m going to see what I can do with this.

  7. I bet you do BB!! ;-)

    Good luck with your responses!

  8. I only know three… I’m bad…..
    Looking forward to the answers though! :)

  9. Ok…I know for sure 12 of them. Wanna hear the really screwed part of this? I know what Mrs.RC does, but…I don’t think I know what Mr.RC does! That’s messed up.

    Not bad I guess. This was good for me….seriously…at least I pay some attention to what the hell is going on around me.

  10. The winner is IronDad with the first entry that was 100% correctomondo! The prize is a Ride Like A Pro on the Dragon DVD from www.Shop.RoadCaptainUSA.com
