Motorcycle personality test

Everyone loves quizzes, and this one should be fun for most of my Gibberish readers. Most of you ride, or are the types of people who would ride. So, give the motorcycle personality test on Hello Quizzy a shot.

Thanks to segue00 on the FZ6 sportbikes.net forum for linking this over the weekend.

I was:

The Yamaha R1 super sport motorcycle.

This is the larger, sport version of my FZ6. I would love an R1, but it is a little too hardcore street racer for me. I think the test put me on the R1 instead of other choices because of how I answered the protective gear and riding behavior questions.

The R1 is a sexy bike and I would certainly ride one, but I don’t think it completely matches my motorcycling personality. I don’t think my FZ6 is an option, but either the FZ or the Suzuki Vstrom fits my multi-purpose mentality a bit better than a bad ass liter sport bike.

    The first time I took the test I didn’t realize there was an image and description of the bike. So I took it again, answering (to my mind) the same exact way.

    This time I got:

    Yamaha FJR1300

    You scored 5 moxie, 13 zeal, and 5 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?

    Odd that the results were different, but I could also see the FJR. In fact, it was the #1 bike I considered before buying my BMW K 1200 LTE.

    Even though I know I’d kill myself within a minute should I tried to ride a bike, I took the quiz anyway :P

    My result: Honda Hawk

    Your interest in riding a motorcycle is purely practical – its cheap, easy to get through the city, and you can park anywhere. You are unlikely to ever ride anywhere except between home and work or school. In order to maximize the practicality of riding, you read the magazine reviews and choose a bland yet utterly reliable Honda, a sensible motorcycle for sensible people.

    One day I would like to learn to ride, but it is nice being a passenger. With that said, my results:
    “Yamaha FJR1300
    You scored 1 moxie, 9 zeal, and -3 pomp!

    Sorry my comment looks weird. I tried to paste in the code. Sometimes I am just computer challenged. At least you can read it :/

    Yeah, got the Yamaha FJR1300 as well…

    Moto Guzzi V11
    You scored 0 moxie, 9 zeal, and -6 pomp!

    You’ve ridden ‘em all. You love riding, and you’re at the peak of your game. You develop irrational love for unusual motorcycles, and the latest acquisition is a sweet Moto Guzzi.
    You are the most likely among the personality types to own a garage full of esoteric old bikes awaiting restoration.

    Aprilia RSV Mille

    You scored 8 moxie, 5 zeal, and 8 pomp!

    You’re a fast and competent rider, but maybe not quite as good as you think you are. You’ve spent some big bucks on a sexy Aprilia, now go buy a beat-up Kawasaki EX500 as a track bike and get in some practice before you kill yourself.

    Seriously. The Mille’s power scares the crap out of you at times, and you mostly bought it because you wanted something more unusual than a Ducati. Its not comfortable, you’re not having fun, and you’re riding less than you did on your old bike. If you’re not willing to put in some serious practice time, you should really get something a little less purposefully lethal.

    Here is a result from a quiz I haven’t seen here yet:

    I could survive for 57 seconds chained to a bunk bed with a velociraptor

  9. shak says:

    my results ( which I’m kinda pleased with…):

    You exhibit an overexuberance in all respects that cannot be satisfied. Your attitude and ego are over the top, yet you actually have the skills to match. Its infuriating. People would hate you, but you’re too damned nice. You always ride like its your last day to live, and leave bystanders vaguely aroused.

    Your bike is the Ducati 996. Sex on wheels.
