    SCORING

    -10 to 0 Why even own a sportbike? Go buy yourself a BMW K1200LT.

    1 to 10 You like to ride your motorcycle and can ride it well, for the most part. More
    than likely you’re really a true poser, though. You just bought your bike and
    are too poor to afford carbon fiber right now.

    11 to 25 Some of you can ride, and some of you can’t. If you’ve done some track days and
    not crashed then you can ride pretty well. Otherwise you’re still saving money
    for the chrome wheels and CF tank.

    26 to 40 You ride on weekends to the local hangout and talk about bikes. Then you ride
    home. Rarely do you see anything resembling a turn other than the cloverleaf on
    the way to and from the hangout. You spend more money on your bike in a month
    than you do for your rent or mortgage. You have 1000 shares of Lockhart Phillips
    stock.

    41 to 60 Generally you ride around in a straight line real fast, can’t turn, can’t brake,
    and think the MSF stands for “Motorcycle Stunt Fund”, to which you donate $100 a
    year. You have specially made sandals that have a shifter pad on the left foot.

    61 to 80 You like to do stunts on your bike such as stoppies and wheelies, but wrecked
    last week when you botched up a burnout. When this happened you scratched your
    unused knee slider on your color-matched-to-your-bike leathers. You told all
    your friends who didn't see the incident that you finally got your knee down.
    Fortunately the CF case covers, CF-look bar ends, and CF-look mirrors saved the
    new chameleon paint job.

    81 to 99 You are only one step away from the ultimate poser. You rationalize that all the
    modifications make your bike so much lighter and more flickable than even a
    factory racebike. Unfortunately the neon lights are weighing you down and you're
    thinking about tossing them.

    >/=100 You are the Ultimate Poser. You won first place in this spring's bike show for
    the "Most Modified Sportbike". You have more money in your bike than is legal.
    When you go riding on the weekends with your buds, your excuse for being in the
    back of the pack is that you don't want to push it and wreck your toy. Fact is,
    you just can't ride. "Countersteering" is not in your vocabulary. You only ride
    to pick up chicks.


    Are You A Poser?

    -5 Baby! I guess that means I just push my bike around the driveway every once in a while?

    Small amount of unused tire +5 (Yay track day!)
    Stock Fender -5
    Have reflectors -5

    But the verdicts are kind of funny... So if you bought a bike and just rode it at the track you'd probably still be under 20. How would someone like that be a poser. There should be more subtractions for people who actually ride, like:

    MSF basic course -5
    MSF Advanced course -5
    Track day -10
    Racing school -20
    You race -25
    You win races -30
    You are a pro racer -100
    You ride >10,000miles per year -10


    Also they forgot to put in points for scraping pegs, exhaust, etc..

    Scraped pegs -5
    Peg feelers worn completely off -10
    Scraped exhaust -15
    Knee and Elbow sliders actually get used -20
    Took a belt sander to your pegs, can, and sliders +50 (I mean that is the real poser thing right there right?)
