Looks like we're both master riders who own FJRs, Doug. I wonder if I would have gotten a BMW if I had chosen the top of the line refrigerator?

Yup, another FJR 1300 here too. Wonder if that's the only sport touring bike in the database?

I tried it. Scored an FJR1300. I don't know if they have a K1200GT in their database.

Their database is surprisingly large and varied. The only BMW I found was an R1150RT.I also found Hondas, Suzukis, Triumphs, and more. I didn't spend a lot of time.

To look at some of the other bikes that you might have scored, just replace the moxie, zeal, and pomp values in the URL.

Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

Quiz

Surprised me, they said I should be riding a Yamaha R1. Oddly enough, I have never really considered owning an R1...

This test is bunk!

You're addicted to speed, but have the knowledge and experience to match. Although you like to win, you don't really care so much about competing with others as much as competing with yourself.
Your bike is the Yamaha YZF R1. Given how easily the rear wheel on this beast spins up coming out of turns, it is fortunate that you constantly work to improve your skills. (I've seen more R1s crash at track days than any other bike.)

It was a close decision with the Suzuki GSXR1000, but your personality seemed a bit more R1-ish. (But hey, I could be wrong. Its only a silly test.)

Test Results:

You scored 0 moxie, 8 zeal, and 4 pomp!

You scored 0 on moxie, higher than 17% of your peers.
You scored 8 on zeal, higher than 69% of your peers.
You scored 4 on pomp, higher than 62% of your peers.

You have the characteristics of a master street rider. On the way to work, your love for riding sometimes leads you to take the long way. The 50-miles-of-back-roads long way. You live for the perfect road, and plan vacations around riding.

You need a bike that can handle your addiction to the twisties as well as comfortably carry two on a weekend trip through the mountains. Your bike is the FJR1300. Can I borrow it someday?


My comments:
Not really. My bike is a 04 K1200GT

YZF R-1 or possibly Gixxer 1000.
I did lie on the MSF course question, I haven't and probably won't or might, ? or not . Although, I'm looking into a trackday "school" in Atlanta where you use their bikes.
I'm not sure I would behave enough on mine and then I'd be driving for a while.
