About This Quiz

Has your dream always been the wind in your hair as you race down an empty highway? If so, you probably couldn't wait to own your first motorcycle. Answer these 30 questions about your first bike, and we'll tell you what kind it was.

So, did you dream of your first bike as a rumbling Harley Davidson? Or was your idea of the ideal roadster a thundering Indian? Maybe you were more of a Honda rider? Your first bike says a lot about you. Bikers have a mindset that is much like the personas of classic car enthusiasts (hey, maybe you're a bike AND a car guy?). 

Bikers have all kinds of rules. Do you let others borrow your bike? Is your significant other permitted to hit the road with you? Where do you store your bike? And, hey, we get it... maybe you have developed your biker mindset over the years, but when you first started out, you rode a used and battered roadster. But even if that is the case, that beat up old roller probably left an imprint on your soul that will never be forgotten.
