I've always had more money than brains, and I'm usually broke.

I refer to the Tourateched GSA riders at Starbucks drinking lattes as ADVENTURE Starbucks.

If you want to know what I am called... well, any combination of four letter words will do.

I would just call him "newbie", because it is not permanent, he will have something to look forward to get better, ride tougher trails and hopefully wait humbly for people to ask about where he goes instead of broadcasting it.

as for bmw pyjamas... funny one. laught all you want but that is still a more convenient gear with plenty of pockets where you need them, and far better comfort in rain and low temp. But I would buy "revvit" instead.

As for me, well, I ride my cheap ninja 650 in a rocky 3 feet wide rain torrent with road-only tires, going out 300miles away from home and back on same day without so much as a rope. I dunno if that makes me crazy or ignorant, but certainly too cheap to buy an adv bike, and likely the opposite of what you are trying to name! (but I still brag a bit, obviously...! LOL)

I was at an intersection waiting for the left turn arrow when a blue hair woman pulled up next to me, rolled down her window and pointed at my one piece Stich. I lifted my helmet visor and leaned over to hear what she was shouting.

"May the Force be with you!" she yelled, then cackled toothlessly.

I can only imagine what people in my area are calling me... I really don't care what they think but I am sure it is funny.

I am riding a Blue/Silver Honda Shadow dressed with chrome while wearing brown black riding pants and Goretex combat boots and a BMG winter jacket and gloves with a Neon Green safety vest over that and a Black full face helmet.

My coworkers that ride where laughing at me at first when I purchased my bike in October but when I kept riding through the winter and well into the low 20's they stopped laughing.

Usually sir, as in "sir, please leave", "sir, you are making a scene" or "sir, you can't park that there"

given how most adv riders look after a week on the road maybe 'bacon-chasing hobo' would be more appropriate

I wear a dirt bike helmet

I wear a street bike jacket, steel toe leather work boots, and cortech riding jeans

I ride a ugly red 30 year old beast thats pefrorms on road and off.

I can trail ride with motocross bikes and burn your sports car at the stop light. I don;t care about your turbo either.
