Default Which best decribes your riding?

Which title best decribes the majority of your riding???

While I'm sure many do several types, vote for what describes most of your time on the bike.

Adventurer would cover most of my time these days.
Most miles are with full luggage. Off to some far away mountains.
Combined somewhat, if you will, with weekend warrior. I do like to shred the twistys. Luggage or not!

Only occassional green laning with a quad bike.

Adventurer for me too. My idea of a good ride is to go out and get lost, ride with a good, swift pace and find new places to explore.

Full timer, don't drive. Fun come rain or shine, most of the time!

You missed a category

Non existent, don't know why, but the bike has sat in the garage for months, some of it is to do with the weather, other than that, I don't know why

Its got its MOT on Tues, but I doubt it'll spark any interest in riding

I hate cars, I get sick in them all the time and hate the way cars smell inside. So I do not drive and use the bike as my main means of transport. However on nice days I drag out the Death Trap, my home made push bike and that is such a laugh I wonder why I need an engine at all!

With three push bikes and a fleet of motorcycles, I am spoiled for choice though when I do want to play on two wheels.

Same, although I usually because I seem to always get lost as I can never remember the routes again which is annoying when you found a good one. Mind you I picked weekend warrior
