I've heard used...John Bellantonio said:Those that ride motorcycles are generally called bikers. Are we a subset of that group called bikers or is there another term that can be used for those who ride maxi-scooters like the Burgman?
I agree about the term biker - too much in the way of outlaw gang & poser connotations. I've always considered myself a "motorcyclist", and I will remain a "motorcyclist".Randy said:I also do not care much for the term biker, I ride a motorcycle.
I have been calling it a touring scooter because most people have no idea just how far scooters have come and this makes them think twice.
Really , I find you say scooter to most people and they think Vespa.(old Vespa)
