Since reading the Cycle World article comparing the Sport 1000 to the XR1200, I’ve been thinking about how we perceive our motorcycles. Not just aesthetically, but “who” your bike is in the spectrum of other bikes. And in trying it through to a good analogy, I found myself comparing my bike to various cars to see if the comparison fit.
Based on your personal perception, what car do you think might best personify the qualities you see in your bike?
Please note what you ride, and don’t apply any restrictions to your comparison. This is really for entertainment value only, so use any year or model you think suits the comparison best.
As for me, I think my GT is like a smaller BMW convertible or perhaps a Porsche Boxster- Maybe not the most practical vehicle, but good looking and a lot of fun!
