Now here’s a meme I can get behind!

Yamaha FJR1300
You scored 4 moxie, 7 zeal, and 1 pomp!
You have the characteristics of a master street rider. On the way to
work, your love for riding sometimes leads you to take the long way.
The 50-miles-of-back-roads long way. You live for the perfect road, and
plan vacations around riding.

You need a bike that can handle your addiction to the twisties as well
as comfortably carry two on a weekend trip through the mountains. Your
bike is the FJR1300. Can I borrow it someday?

My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

  1. Blech!!!

    Ducati Monster
    You scored 3 moxie, 0 zeal, and 9 pomp!
    You’re a bit of a snob, but otherwise well-adjusted.

    Your bike is the Ducati Monster. Sexy. Powerful. Agile. Italian style in a badass matte black.

    Of all the test takers, you are most likely to have been hoping for your result to indicate that your bike is a Harley. It isn’t. Sorry. You show the potential to become a superior rider, and you need a bike that encourages and rewards your learning. The Harley will just hold you back, and you’ll have nagging feelings that something is wrong.

    The Suzuki SV series is also a good bet, but it wouldn’t appeal to you. Far too Common.

  2. Re: Blech!!!

    Whats wrong with the monster? I know a number fo people who like and ride them. It is, after all, a great bike. Especially for people who want a Ducati but don’t want to pay for a 999r superbike

  3. Heh – I got a Volvo. Guess I’m not the bike riding type 😉

  4. Now THAT’S funny!

  5. The Volvo
    You scored -4 moxie, -5 zeal, and 1 pomp!
    You’re mostly interested in getting from point A to point B alive and in one piece, and it seems like everybody out there is crazy and trying to kill you. Instead of noticing that a big part of the problem is your tentative and ambiguous behavior on the roads, you solve the problem by surrounding yourself with an impenetrable cage of metal.

    In today’s automotive market, you probably have a SUV instead of a Volvo. Don’t kid yourself, you suffer from the exact same pathology.

    In any case, you are entirely unsuited for motorcycling. In fact, your propensity for suddenly slamming on the brakes at the end of highway onramps, driving 55mph in the left lane, leaving your blinker on for 10 miles, and “being nice” by unpredictably stopping in a multi-lane road to let people turn in front of you makes you fairly unsuited for driving anywhere, particularly if there are any motorcycles around to get crushed by your tank-like car.

  6. BWAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH

    the details text on that is classic!

  7. Re: Blech!!!

    I’m really not a street bike kind of gal. I prefer lots of chrome and leather. And a hot man straddling the V Twin. . . Oh wait! Different personality test. 🙂

    v-twin???? Blech. 😉

  9. Harley 883 Sportster
    You scored 3 moxie, 5 zeal, and 2 pomp!
    You scored dead center average, lacking any of the personality quirks that normally drive people to motorcycling.
    However, if you do ride, statistics would suggest that you are destined for a Harley-Davidson, probably something in the Softail line.

    You might have noticed that’s a lot of moolah for an (arguably) obsolete piece of machinery, and you’re too rational and attitude-free to need the Biggest and Baddest that the marketeers tell you to buy. A far more reasonably priced taste of the Harley Kool-Aid is the 883 Sporty, a fun little beast that leaves you with plenty of cash to customize.

    On the other hand, the only reason I’m bringing up the Harley-Davidson product line at all is due to the fact that Harley is the choice most people think of when they consider getting into motorcycling, and that’s mostly because they don’t know much about the alternatives.

    Thought experiment: if you were the only person left on earth, and you could pick any motorcycle you wanted, what would you choose? Best looking or best engineered? Your test results don’t really point in any direction strongly, so I’ll try to nudge you towards substance over style.

    Consider: a FXST Softail weighs 629lbs dry, the base version starts around $14k, and will make 75-80hp — after you tweak it with pipes and a jet kit. A Buell XB12R weighs 395lbs dry, costs $10.5k and makes 103hp, stock. An Aprilia Tuono R weighs 417lbs, costs $12k, and makes 125hp, stock. (We won’t even mention the bang for buck of the Japanese competitors.) Still a fan of retro-classic styling? Then at least consider Harley’s V-Rod, which mixes in some modern engineering into the equation (596lbs, 125hp, $17k).

    While the Sportster is a reasonable compromise, you may discover that you enjoy the added feedback provided by standard-style bikes such as the Suzuki SV or the Ducati Monster. (If you must hang with the Harley crowd, they’ll be less likely to give you grief if you choose the Buell, though.)

    You have the potential to be a great rider. Take the MSF class, and choose a bike that won’t hold you back!

  10. is there, like, a vespa option?
    (i fear i be volvo).
