DAPPER BIKER

I am a sucker for good bikes whose performance and handling are top notch; especially when it comes to this YAMAHA  drag star  650 which is a fun hassle-free way to enjoy your cruising. On the brighter side, the dragster makes  a good case for itself as an affordable alternative to Harley Davidson’s 883 sportster or Triumph’s Bonneville.

We are used to seeing most bikers if not all in their usual leather jackets and boots; don’t get me wrong some of these biker jackets are very classy but not all . So I decided to break the norm by riding on this monster of a bike in a suit. YES! A suit. The dragster is an attention seeker by itself through its loud exhaust; but what would drop jaws more than seeing a dapper gent pulling up with it?

“DON’T JUST BUY A CLASSIC BIKE TO RIDE IT, BUY IT TO BECOME PART OF ITS STORY.”

When pulling the dapper biker look there are a couple of things that are impossible to ditch like the helmet (of course for safety measures) and the gloves. I must admit that the biker gloves are too stylish to even think bout doing away with them for whatever cause. The two leather side bags act as my glove compartment for whatever thing I may decide to carry.

So if you are a lover of bikes and you are an office guy,don’t shy away from being different and see how that will work out for you.Be one with your bike ”Work to ride and ride to work”.
