Reading Time: 3 minutes

We all know that people who like to ride motorcycles have particular characteristics. But knowing whether you’re a part of the community is never easy.

Yes – long hair and listening to heavy metal is all part of the look. But what are the deep personality traits that attract people to the activity in the first place? 

 

You Like The Sound Of Exhaust

For some people, the sound of exhaust is an annoyance. But for the person who is a diehard bike at heart, it is an essential part of the experience. You look forward to hearing your engine rev in the morning before you go to work. It is one of life’s joys.

You Have A Penchant For Freedom

Freedom is fundamental to the human spirit. Most of us want it, but relatively few people are willing to give up other things – like security – to get it. 

Motorbikers, however, are. They’re okay with giving up a bit of security if it means being able to live life to the full, unimpeded by others. 

 

You Love Looking At Motorbikes

It might sound simple, but people who love to look at motorbikes are very likely motorcyclists at heart. Everything from the beauty of the design to how the components fit together can be of interest to the enthusiast.

You Have A Habit Of Waving To Other Bikers

The biggest perk of being a motorcyclist is the sense of community that you get with other riders on the road. People you don’t know don’t usually wave at you and smile, but that happens with surprising frequency when you learn to motorcycle. Other riders on the road will give you a heads up, even if you’re not a part of their frat. 

 

You’re Prepared To Take Risks

Motorcycle accident lawyers process injury claims for thousands of riders every year. Unfortunately, it is just a fact of life. If you ride a motorbike, you’re putting yourself at higher risk than other motorists. But that’s the price you pay. If you’re a motorcyclist at heart, you accept it.

Your Idea Of An Ideal Day Out Is A Trip To Your Local Harley-Davidson Dealership

For many bikers, Harley-Davidson is the pinnacle of motoring perfection. While the Japanese might engineer some mighty fine bikes, they don’t fully grasp what it means to be a rider.

It’s not just about performance, but also the way that your ride makes you feel. Going to a Harley-Davidson showroom is a quick and easy way to indulge in a little retail therapy. 

 

You Start Wearing Your Jacket And Chaps At Social Events

Wearing a jacket and chaps is a good idea when you’re on your bicycle, but there’s no need to wear it at social functions. Unless, of course, you’re really a biker at heart – and proud of it. 

 

You Know The Taste Of Insects

Bikers who wear open helmets soon get used to the taste of insects. They splat on your face, just as they do on the windscreen of your car. And they have an annoying habit of making their way into your mouth.
