PostSubject: Are we rockers or mods ?   Mon 22 Oct 2012, 04:51

Since the mid-sixties, two-wheeled Britain was divided into two kinds of motorcyclists: Mods and Rockers.

The mods were fashion-aware 'gents' that rode scooters, the rockers were leather-dressed bikers that invented the café-race.

Up till the dawn of the big motor-scooter, the classification was easy.

But what to do with owners of a Honda Silverwing, a Suzuki Burgman, a Yamaha Majesty, or -a little more exotic- a Gilera GP800???

Are they Mods or Rockers or do we need to invent an new terminology???
'Mocker', 'Modder', 'Swinger' are allready taken Laughing
