About This Quiz

Some think that people who own motorcycles are all the same, but nothing could be further from the truth. Whether you are the type of person that has some killer facial hair, wears lots of leather,  and drives a Harley with all of your buddies, or you live in the middle of the country and like going offroading on your dirtbike, you know that there are a lot of different styles to choose from in the world of motorcycles.

Would you own a sportbike, something like a Ducati, that is all power, speed, style and something that has the newest technology, but that isn't all that comfy to cruise around on? Or maybe your scene would be more something like cruiser like a Harley or an Indian, the type of bike that you go out for the day with your buddies and mess around? Or maybe even a chopper, a bike that no one can deny looks totally cool? Of could you want a scooter? 

Okay, we were actually making sure you were just paying attention, we know you are way too cool for one of those! What kind of motorcycle do you own? If you take this quiz, we bet we can figure it out.
