For you, what does it mean to be a motorcyclist?
Now just being a biker may mean something a little different to another person. Its meaning depends on what you believe in as a rider.Being a biker is more then words and acts. It is a state of mind.
Being a biker means that you enjoy the company of other riders over anyone else (no matter what they ride). For that reason most of our friends ride. We do have friends that don’t ride and there are a few who I wish that did and I try to convert them all the time (I have my personal reasons and you guys especially would thank me later when you met those girls).
Bikers help others. When a brother or sister is broken down by the side of the road, they always stop and help them. Even for moral support, if that is all they can give, it is better than riding on by. Remember life is about the journey and the ride. Not just getting there.
