Anyone care to take a short survey?

I am writing a paper on groups of people and since I went to the Lonestar Rally last weekend I am doing bikers. I am trying to find out more about the biker culture and If you have any comments or insite into the group anything would help.

1) What is your age?

2) Gender?

3) Do you tend to gather in a particular location?

3) Do you distinguish yourself between other motorcycle groups?

4) What do you think is the most comon missconception about bikers?

5) What got you into riding/ Why do you enjoy riding?

If you have any other information you would like to give me it would be greatly appreciated. Leave me a message or call me at 605-209-4657

I respect all types of motorcycle's and they groups they tend to form.

Young kid + super sport bike = death
5) What got you into riding/ Why do you enjoy riding?
I have always rode dirt bikes and wanted to step up my level of riding and the feeling you get from riding is like no other type of transportaion... in a car your surrounded by metal... when your on a bike.. your surrounded by idiots.. i mean the breeze blowing through your helmet vents

1) What is your age? 51

2) Gender? Female

3) Do you tend to gather in a particular location? I havent' gathered with a "group' in years! Just don't seem to have the time to meet with people at eating places, but don't ride with groups in general as they ride too fast for me; takes the fun out of a fun thing.

3) Do you distinguish yourself between other motorcycle groups? I ride prettty much alone, I wave at all bikers, including Harelys and rarely get waved back at, but my sportbike pals, whoever they may be, always wave back!

4) What do you think is the most comon missconception about bikers? This goes back years! 's angels put a bad name on bikers, now they're kind of respectable raising money for children. Now days, sportbike riders, whoever they may be, are terrorizing, stunting, riding at ridiculous speeds, causing accidents, killing themselves and killing/huring innocent drivers, while the meek riders, ride at a decent pace, but still deemed wreckless.

5) What got you into riding/ Why do you enjoy riding?
My brother when he came home from the Navy in 1972; that's when it all began!. Its a feeling of freedom no matter what type of bike I'm on.
