I've ran across lots of members thus far who say, "I ride too!"
So it made sense for there to be a group for bikers here.


Just the other day I was riding down the road in my smart. And a guy was heading the other direction on his motorcycle. He gave me the motorcycle wave! The left hand held down with forefinger and middle finger extended. I recognize it from being a rider myself. So I wave back as I look around to see if I'm going to look the fool because there's a bike behind me or something. I don't hear another bike. Don't see another bike. Then as he and I pass each other he gives me a big ole grin and a nod.

Maybe he has one on order?

There just seemed to be a common theme lately. Lots of members that seem to ride a two wheeled vehicle.

At some point I'd like to rotate the group picture with member pictures. Pictures of their smart with their motorcycle{s} and/or scooter{s}. (Just in case the site is still scrambling it that last word in the last sentence is SC00TER.

Angel, I do like that chopper emo you have there. I don't have a bike now, but I told people that, to me, my Smart will be like a motocycle, but with 4 wheels.

Too bad I can't ride the Harley and drive the smart at the same time Rmichael. I understand about the minivan. Also in our garage is the Hummer H3. {Though it technically belongs to da man person.} So we cover some bases with that the smart, 3 motorcycles and our bicycles.

I wish I rode!
It seems more of a contradiction to me that I own a mini-van and smart than it is for a smart to own a bike. That seems more natural. It would be cool if y'all could have a meet where you could show off your bikes and your smarts!

I'm a biker too (BMW R 1200 GSA) and they are quiet similar:
- 999cc vs 1170cc
- 8.7 gallons vs. 8.7 gallons tank (yes, it does have a big tank)
- 42 MPG vs 42 MPG

The similarities end with the 0-60 time:
- 12.0s vs 3.3s

I am a rider and a Smart owner also.

I'm in that category of smart owners/motorcycle riders. My R1100RT touring bike's engine is 300cc's larger than the engine in my smart!

I also have a Suzuki DRZ dual sport for Enduros, and two Honda full dirt to enjoy the thousands of acres of woodlands that are adjacent to our property. I started out in British bikes (Triumph, Norton) in the 60s & 70s but the two hours of maintenance for every hour of riding aspect of Brit bikes took me to appreciate European and Jap bikes.
The whole two finger low "bike wave" thing is a relatively new thing - maybe the last 15 years or so? I want to be cordial to other riders, but this waving at every bike thing can wear out your elbow!

I've had bikes all of my life and the smart is a lot like a bike in many ways; cult following; addictive enjoyment; individualist vehicle; and always draws attention.

I've had bikes waving and giving me thumbs up since day one in my smart.
