Two years ago I rode up to help out with my club's highway cleanup day. Cold, wind, rain, blustery, overall fun time. Turns out I was the only one to show up. Went home, decided to go to the local HD club bike show. Got off the bike near the front door, observed that Mine was the only bike visible. Walked in dripping and saw all these folks in leathers and other pirate garb looking at me as if I was the strange one. I remarked to the money-taker, "Where are all the real bikes?" Heard grumbling after that.

Buddy of mine used to be a member of that group, had other bikes besides HD's. He put one in with a sidecar, novel he was told, but only HD's are eligible for awards. He's not a member anymore.

That, in a nutshell, pretty much sums it up.

Sunny, 70 degrees, calm? Plenty of big iron to be seen.

So am I to assume that if i wore my favorite team's NFL Jersey with that same team's hat and maybe a key chain depicting the team logo to a bar to swill some beer, I would also be considered a "poser" ?????

What if I watched X Games while drinking Rockstar on the couch but only know Shaun White instead of all of the contsestants?

What about wearing a Fox Racing Shirt to the mall eventhough I didn't ride my dirt bike?

What if I exchanged my worn out HD ballcap for a nice flat billed Monster Energy hat and wore that same hat sideways or backwards?

All seems the same to me.

Let me guess, your favorite colors are black and orange?

imho
yes
no offence meant
just how i look at the world
but hypocrite as i am
i'm usually in boardshorts and t shirt
all with brand names on them
and hat/thongs- flip flops to you
everything with a brand name
never bike gear or snow gear/ sport gear eg boots etc
unless i'm wearing them for the purpose they were
designed for

cheers

Depends on whether you were wearing a chest protector over it.

I don't think it makes someone a poser to wear a t-shirt for their preferred brand (hell, I wear my BMW hat all the time and don't even own one anymore), but wearing leather gear when you drove your cage is definitely posing.

Ya I do fly orange and black however I dont quite understand the issue of posers. Seems to be many on both sides.

I also fly Suzuki yellow and see the same things mentioned here.

Who cares?

If I wore my one piece MotoGP leathers, Daytona boots and Alpinestars gloves to go to the bike shop, IN MY VAN, it would be pretty stupid. No?

Both sides? There are only two?

You seem to care enough to post about it.

Wearing a T shirt or jersey is not the same as wearing riding or athletic gear.

A poser is one who puts on a "costume" pretending to be someone, or to look like they are doing something they are not, because they have an emotional need to be perceived as being part of something exclusive.
