Your garage is so full of bike stuff you can't get your cars in there........

On weekend mornings your driveway is lined with your friends bikes....

Your jeans have holes in the knees....

When you spend 6+ hours a day 7 days a week (AFTER working 8 hours at your normal day job) working on a Sportbike website and only make approx $450 a month doing it.

30 days X 6 hours a day = 180 hours
$450 divided by 180 =2.5

$2.50 per hour.

But that's ok, I'd do it for free. :)

...when you work a second job two or three days a week, ON TOP OF the normal 60 hours per week at your normal job, just so you can afford your bike. Wish I could've paid "cash" for it, but that's ok, I'VE GOT A SPORTBIKE!!!!!!

...when you wave excitedly at other bikers...and you're in your CAGE!

...when you carefully negotiate the apex of a curve...with a grocery cart!

...when you park a $15,000 vehicle in the driveway so you can park your $4,000 used bike in the garage!

Somebody STOP ME! I've got a MILLION of 'em!

...you say that you're going to the "Gap" and you expect the people there to be wearing leather and kevlar not khakis and pastels...

You get turned off when people don't know
what an R1 is.

Your utility shed has 7 bikes worth of
parts in it.

Your car is worth 5k and your bike 10k.

You see people you haven't seen in a while
and the first words out of there mouth are
"How's the bike?"

You won't date a girl who won't get on the
bike or rides herself.

All your close friends own sportbikes.

When you go out with the boys, while most
people are talking sh!t about girls your
talking sh!t about bikes.

You spend ridiculous amounts of time on some
Web Site called SBW.

You are a moderator for said web site.

You put off winterizing your bike until after 2 feet of snow has fallen (and even then you curse yourself when it warms up to a fraction above freezing... or you see a patch of dry pavement.)

When the first motorcycle of the year drives by
1. you wet yourself
2. you curse yourself for letting your insurance expire
3. you work 200 hours of consecutive overtime to raise enough money to get yourself back on the road
4. you crash on your first corner because you forgot how slippy salty cold roads are.

...man this topic is addictive!

When you find yourself, on a regular basis, standing barefoot on the cold concrete floor of your garage, at 4:30 in the morning, staring at your bike, and wondering if it would wake up the neighbours, or the wife, if you took it out for just a little ride. Then you put on your gear and do it anyway.

When you and your brother sit on the (garaged) bikes in the middle of winter and make vroom vroom noises, while "turning" AND with the helmets on. His girlfriend got a laugh at us and asked why we had on the helmets "it's the law you dummy" was my brother’s only reply.

Also, when you pass up lunch with a "hottie" to ride (still kicking myself over that one)


Rock on
Ride on

Man, I do that every time. I can be in the middle of a conversation, and I will just stop and listen to try an figure what kind of bike it is, and where it is. People actually have gotten quite annoyed with me for doing that. ;)

Pete does this with his son. The bike is in the livingroom. He has the TV remote wired to the turn signal switch. It's a HONDA VTR1000R (I believe the R stands for Recliner). :rolleyes: :p :D

I start my bike several times during the cold part of winter just to hear it run. It is like the longest month of the year. :p

Lived with a GF once. Caught hell for this one time. Who would have thought she would wake up in the middle of the night? When I got home 30 minutes later I was in TROUBLE. Then again...she's gone now and I bought a different bike this season.
