Are you a poseur if your FAST?
(im not referring to myself as im not fast)

Track Poseur = full factory race paint scheme w/matching leathers, helmet and #1 plate. etc etc.

Street Poseurs are a different story...

I say no.. flashy gear/paint doesnt make you a poser...


Taking a bench grinder to your knee pucks makes you a poser.

Buying a bike to hang out at robson and look cool makes you a poser.


Having some fashionable taste while ripping it up on the track doesnt make you a poser. Its all where your heart is at.

Does THIS look like a poseur's bike????



It was merest luck that the leathers I got are black, white and red.......At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it......... :D

I agree 100% man.
It's all your state of mind... :thumbup

Even if poseurs have the full gear, have big chicken strips etc. They could well be enjoying for the love of the sport. And there a hell of alot safer than guys riding with shorts, sandals etc.

Riding is totally your own game. If you are always riding to impress anyone than yourself, you're a poseur... and you likely won't last long. Find your game, and play your game. My 2 cents worth.

Well I guess I'm a poser, suit kinda matches the bike,boot's match the suit,but my sponsor gave me all this shit,do ya think they are trying to make me look like a poser?I'm more than 5 seconds off the lap record.........more like 6 seconds, but I'm carrying ALL the beef.

I hope my new helmut matches my boots,I hope they get it right this time.............I love free stuff !

Yo, check your mail man. :)

Paul's best on my bike was a 1:41.xx and mine a 1:45.2. For some odd reason i was downshifting into 2nd in turn 2... losing precious time slowing down and re-acclerating again. I dont know what the hell i was thinking...? He was shifting into 4th (over the 1st crest) while i was shifting into 3rd at the same point.

Not to mention he was WOT in turn 3 and 8.

Combine all this and you raising hell down the straight. Hopefully the times should come down.

You're 1:36 is a smoking time man :thumbup

Are you a poser hmm I donno when I was young I had the same snowboard/jacket/pants as my fav pro rider and now that I look back at it I think it was silly being a clone. I still look to him for inspiration but I have my own style I rock out now. So I guess its like do you want to be known as "that EG Hybrid guy who rides really fast" or that look alike... But what do I know Im new here hah.:) :(
