What is a biker ?

By now as a biker I’m used to reading complete rubbish about us and the lifestyle but here’s a patronizingly amusing extract from the ‘informative’ ( NOT!) wikipedia……………….

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Although the term refers to any motorcycle enthusiast, sometimes the word "biker" is used to mean an outlaw biker, or bikie, who is a member of a 1%er or outlaw motorcycle gang.

Amongst riders of motorcycles, the term "biker" or "rider" is used to refer to anyone who rides a motorcycle. The word "bikie" strictly refers to European and Australian members of "1%er" or "outlaw" motorcycle gangs. Non-riders tend to place all motorcycle riders into the same category, but within the riding community there are many sub-sets of riders.

Some bikers ride heavy cruiser-type motorcycles. (Motorcycles in excess of 700cc displacement are considered "heavy," and "cruisers" are large, heavy bikes designed for relaxed travel that allow the rider to sit upright or lean back. A chopper is a motorcycle that has been stripped down—or "chopped"—to the bare essentials: engine, frame, gas tank, wheels, handlebars, and seat.)

The other more popular styles of bikes are

  • Sports Bike (those who have the fastest, most maneuverable of bikes. Like going fast, and most importantly, taking corners as fast and leaned into as low as possible)
  • Tourers (Big comfortable bikes, built for covering long distances comfortably)
  • Dirt bikes (Designed for off road riding)
  • Adventure Tourers (Bikes built for travelling across vast distances where roads do not exist. Cross between a dirt bike and a tourer)

Bikers tend to associate with others that share their enthusiasm, and congregate at motorcycle events such as "bike week" rallies and races.-
