When you go for long trip in your car, and while narrating the trip story to your friends you "I went on long ride" instead of long drive.

When you prefer your bike over your comfortable car, especially on a long drive

1) When you know the engine's best power band for your mood.
2) When you know the chassis and when to give it a moment or two to recover after point 3.
3) When you for fun, revv it hard before each and every gearshift, and then go for clutchless shifts.
4) When you enjoy riding a bike, not just going from point A to point B.
5) When you try to do almost every service and maintaining part yourself.
6) You believe that bike is for part of your life and infact bike is part of you.
7) You can put trust in your bike that it will remain more faithful and reliable than human beings.

I Swear!!! Seriously. Done this so many times. Everytime i hit a bump.. i curse myself for hurting my babe.

Also i think you know u are a biker when:
1 you always say "Ride" instead of "drive"
2 you stop carrying a wallet cos it hurts your bottom and hinders the ride (i did that..)...

- When you see some moderate traffic just begging you to weave through.
- When you see a coupla twisties and know you'd rather be on your bike.
- When you'd rather take the bike to office than your car.
- When you consider buying a SuperBike rather than a second car.
- When you know how much emergency rear slide is enough to get you to stop in front of the moron who cut you off, and then still manage to smirk and snarl at him at the same time.
- When you are considering buying another bike, without selling the one you already have and you don't know how to explain that to those who ask you.. 'Why?'

- When you have a tear in your eye when you read a Superbike Acquisition / Ownership report on T-Bhp, like this - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/motorb...r-954rr-4.html

You drive around in your car making superbike sounds! I do this a lot. Drives my wife nuts! It's even better when you're going slow in reality but blazing down the 130R in a GSXR1000 in your mind! Try it!

When air is music to ears, and torque is the adrenaline,
When traffic is race track, and leaning on corners is divine,
when you wear all safety gear and hate roads with stop lines,
When you are disciplined and mischievous at the same time,
When the speed makes the blood rush and bring your lips to smile,
when you feel stronger and other weaker and when that throttle makes you fly higher,
YOU ARE A BIKER!

When the number of bikes are more than the number of cars you own and regreat that why you bought this car may be could have satteled with small 2nd hand car with few more bikes in your hand.
When the number of spare parts you collect for bikes are more then your clothes collection.
When you spend your weekends mostly with your bikes rather then family.
When you enjoy more shopping spares rather then any other stuff.

Default You know you are a biker when...

...the worst part of any journey is reaching the destination!
...you sell your cell phone because it disturbs your riding!
...you name your tyres!!
...you hang up used tubes and spark plugs for wall decor
...you have to be reminded that mechanics also can fix your bike
...you cut off your hair because helmets are bad for your hair
...you buy an Enfield despite all good advice

Post You know you are biker when ....

-- When your bike's odometer is inflating and your wallet size is deflating!!!!
-- You'd rather sit in T-Bhp forum rather than going out with your GF ( i did, and it makes her hell mad ).
