You might be a sportbike rider if...
The only reason you look at the weather channel is to determine whether or not to ride that day.

You compare everyday prices to motorcycle parts (ex. $120 dollars in groceries=new tire)

going 120mph is not a big deal to you

You know what a CBR or an R1 is without having heard the make of the vehicle.

you know that their other headlight is not out.



thats all i got for now. feel free to add more.

... you waive to other riders while in your cage.

... you immediately wish you rode your bike when you come up to two vehicles driving the same speed while taking up both lanes.

... you speed up to take a corner, only to panic and slam on the brakes because your cage sucks and can't pull it off.

... you lean while in your seat during a corner in your cage.

You use your foot to shift even though you are in an automatic car. You still try to avoid dirt spots even though you are in a car.

You look through turns in your car

You wonder if you could spend 100 a month on food, but don't bat an eye about buying a 300 dollar master cylinder

You think of duct tape as leather repair tape

Your living room is configured as Table, chairs, sportbikes

You think of wieght loss as a means of lowering your laptimes

.. if you can pick out the make, model, and year of just about every sport bike you pass on the road.

This one actually belongs on the "You might be a squid if" list.

whenever you see a scooter on the road, you have the urge to pull up next to them and kick them over.

Everytime you see a sportbike, you immediately look at the rear tire for wear patterns and then judge the rider accordingly.
- flat in the middle = squid
- chicken strips = newbie
- race take-offs = frugal but smart

You shouldn't judge riders based on their rear tyre. You should judge them based on fairing damages and riding abilities. A flat rear tyre can mean long commuting. Chicken strips can mean a street bike. C'mon, the street is hardly an appropriate place to rid your tyre of chicken strips. Race take-offs can mean anything; it could be a nublet that saw a set of used tyres for cheap and jumped on it. Or, it could be a street/track bike.

You know you're a rider when...



You know you're a rider when...


- someone asks you what you want for your birthday and you say "a pair of Pirelli's and a full exhaust"

- your eyes light up and are pinned WIDE OPEN from the sound of any bike coming or going

- in stand still traffic, the shoulder is your only friend

- the only sign you throw up is acknowledging another rider when they pass

- when it gets warmer, you see and hear from people from the close of last season.

- and your phone just does not stop ringing until it gets cold again

-90% of your converstation is on bikes, riding, chicks, stunts, and track days

-you're known by your bike and the color of your gear

-you have friends in your phone by name and bike i.e. R6 Jesse

-your favorite place to hang is a deserted road or parking lot

-you lean your head and ass through corners in your car

-you go to clutch your steering wheel and shift with your foot

- you know every corner and runaway spot in town

- you get mad when you see gravel in a intersection

- your girlfriend gets mad cause she's talking and you hear a bike and start looking for it instead of listening to her

- you have more stunt/racing videos than porn tapes

- you check your bike at least 3 times a night to make sure it's safe

- you have shifter marks on all your shoes

- you see a cop and twist your wrist
