I am starting a series of basic questions to get a better idea of who frequents MCUSA's message forum. So, if you would, please select the type of motorcycle you ride. Thanks!

Be sure to make the selection on the poll. :-)

I'll log in as a Standard, since that best emulates a Triumph Bonneville, but I ususally mold a bike into what I want, as I'm doing with this Bonneville.....
It will actually be more of a "hybrid" Bonneton, a cross between a Bonneville and Thruxton, when I'm done. But since there isn't an area that it would really fit, we'll just go with it's original configuration.

Hey Kliff, what is an R model Sporty Roadster? It dang sure ain't a cruiser and it sure ain't a Sport bike or a Touring bike. So, I guess that makes it a standard right?

As for the poll, I really can't answer because I love my dirt stuff as much as I do the street stuff so I reckin that makes me AC/DC.......

I hear ya man.....I thought the "R" was a "Racey Sporty," (chuckling inanely) and the poll didn't have any way to classify my "True Grits Rally" semi-Cafe Racer extremely modified 60cc MB5 (now vigorously laughing-fell out of the chair-getting excited- but ever thoughtful enough, NOT to use multiple exclamation marks, and offend anyone) I don't think.

Maybe you should list the Sporty as a street fighter. I think that's where I'd list the MB5.

Cruiser all the way these days, although I got my Intruder for touring mainly. Really happy with both of my bikes and hope they still make them when it's time for new ones.

I've only been back to riding for about a year now. The poll results are kind of surprising to me but since it is early in the poll yet I wouldn't attach any significance until more come in. I'll be interested to see if standards stay high in the results ('cuz I have one). I have the impression that nearly everyone in the world, except me, rides either a sport bike or a cruiser.

Usually, I am kind of half cruiser/half standard, but with my Road Star in the shop for now I am totally Triumph Thunderbird. I guess that is more of a standard than anything else.

I consider the Kawi ZR-7S a standard, so entered mine in the poll that way. It's too tame to call it a sport bike/streetfighter. It can be configured for sport touring with some mods and added hard bags, although I don't think it's designed for that. It's an all-round good bike in my opinion, but where it fits in the poll, like many bikes, can be debated...

That is a strange Poll & like others I tend to wonder where I belong in it. Though can say I have three sportbikes & do not putter around town on them nor do I take a week plus to make just one trip to another part of the country.

Basically up in the morning to take off at 8:00 or 9:00 am & ride for some 6 to 7+ hrs arriving back home around two or four in the afternoon for I am chief cook & bottle washer at my home.

I might have an appointment with a doctor or my financial advisor or possibly something I want to pick up at a hardware or other store. That is when I will ONLY use the '97 Yamaha YZF600r for it is the oldest plus shows its battle scars of being pranged on the mtn road SO it is not an attractive bike to steal--besides for short runs it is easier on fuel. No I do not take it down to the coffee or whatever place to show off what bike I am riding.

Even in going to the gym I will not ride the bike, instead I use my cage, for riding to & from the gym wearing light cotten baggy gym trousers, light sneakers, with a T-shirt is not what one will call "protective riding gear". I guess I chould have said I do not ride down to the drug store for cigarettes in light clothing either for the same reason of safety gear & besidies I have never smoked in my life which also tells you I will not ride down for some liquor, in light gear, as I have never touched liquor in my life.


Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.

Wow! 5 guys with standards voted.

I didn't think there were 5 standards left in the whole country.

Have to go with cruiser since thats what both bikes are(technically). The Magna has more of a standard layout, mid controls and no floorboards. Though I will have to admit that its looking that my next bike will be a streetfighter/naked bike.
