I've been riding for 8 years and it never ceases to amaze me at the growing lack of respect for motorcycling that's exhibited by today's "poser". As a female rider, I've encountered many amateurs who've underestimated my knowledge of motorcycles and attempted to impress or should I say dupe me with their awesome skills. Of course, I don't hesitate to shut those people down in a most effective manner.
So what is a poser? It's a motorcyclist with wrong intentions. A rider who does not care about the consequences of wreckless actions on the streets or the negative attentions that it attracts. A rider who does not appreciate or respect the motorcycle as a sophisticated machine with great faculty. A rider who does not harbour some basic technical comprehension or at the very least a desire to understand it's inner beauty. It's a rider who assumes to be skilled and considers appearance more important than safety.
It's a rider whose reigning priority is to ride and impress.
Do you agree?
