Harley 883 Sportster

"You scored 3 moxie, 3 zeal, and 3 pomp!

My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

You scored higher than 29% on moxie

You scored higher than 53% on zeal

You scored higher than 53% on pomp

You scored dead center average, lacking any of the personality quirks that normally drive people to motorcycling. However, if you do ride, statistics would suggest that you are destined for a Harley-Davidson, probably something in the Softail line. On the other hand, the only reason I'm bringing up the Harley-Davidson product line at all is due to the fact that Harley is the choice most people think of when they consider getting into motorcycling, and that's mostly because they don't know much about the alternatives. Your test results don't really point in any direction strongly, so I'll try to nudge you towards substance over style.

While the Sportster is a reasonable compromise, you may discover that you enjoy the added feedback provided by standard-style bikes such as the Suzuki SV or the Ducati Monster. (If you must hang with the Harley crowd, they'll be less likely to give you grief if you choose the Buell, though.)

You have the potential to be a great rider. Choose a bike that won't hold you back!"


At least he threw in my Buell with the HDs... and I have a few friends that might argue those personality quirks. Besides, I prefer the V-Rod to the Softails.

FJR 1300

73%

90%

9%



I ride a ZRX at the moment and got a 81 gs1100e in the garage, but I think I will sell them when I move to Virginia(Roanoke) next year. Then I can get a different bike.



Kinda thinkin KLR. Not much like a FJR

Me, too. I forget my numbers, but I scored 0% on pomp!



Not too unreasonable, considering my current bikes are an R1150RT and a V-Strom. My main touring buddy has an FJR, and I like it a lot. Too much, in fact. I decided my self-restraint wasn't strong enough for the FJR and got the RT instead.

Yamaha YZF R1

You scored 6 moxie, 11 zeal, and -1 pomp!

You're addicted to speed, but have the knowledge and experience to match. Although you like to win, you don't really care so much about competing with others as much as competing with yourself.



Your bike is the Yamaha YZF R1. Given how easily the rear wheel on this beast spins up coming out of turns, it is fortunate that you constantly work to improve your skills. (I've seen more R1s crash at track days than any other bike.)



It was a close decision with the Suzuki GSXR1000, but your personality seemed a bit more R1-ish. (But hey, I could be wrong. Its only a silly test.)



My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:





You scored higher than 76% on moxie



You scored higher than 98% on zeal



You scored higher than 25% on pomp



Hmm, I suppose my GSXR750 is a suitable sub. Now I just need to do those track days to fulfill my profile.

Yamaha FJR1300

You scored 1 moxie, 8 zeal, and -3 pomp!



You have the characteristics of a master street rider. On the way to work, your love for riding sometimes leads you to take the long way. The 50-miles-of-back-roads long way. You live for the perfect road, and plan vacations around riding.



You need a bike that can handle your addiction to the twisties as well as comfortably carry two on a weekend trip through the mountains. Your bike is the FJR1300. Can I borrow it someday?



My test tracked 3 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:





You scored higher than 21% on moxie



You scored higher than 86% on zeal



You scored higher than 3% on pomp



I pretty much agree with this assessment. i like my GSX-R600, but I realized that it isn't really the perfect bike for me about 3 months ago (I have had it for 7 months now). I'm not certain that the FJR is exactly perfect, I think I would prefer an older VFR, but I think the FJR is pretty cool too.

Not a bad test. It said I should be on the FJR 1300. So it got the category right. I like sport tourers. My last two machines have been a VFR and an R1150RS. Unfortunately I think the FJR is too heavy, plus I don't like the buy before you try gig.

Oh, and I'll need a pitbike in October, so I guess an FJR will do...
