Motorcycle stereotypes. Which one are you?

I love this cartoon from www.sheldoncomics.com. I think it's missing a couple of stereotypes though: The fully kitted up adventure rider with matching branded kit, an Arai Tour X and aluminium panniers with just one thing missing; the desert. Modern-Retro riders with the turn-up jeans, open face lid and man-bag and scooter riding city types with a an open-face Momo and a £1000 Versace suit for protection..

Do you fit any of the stereotypes above?

I'm the adventure bike rider. "I'm really a commuter but if there's a rally on the way..."

I'm the first one, naked bike all the way...

I would look much cooler if I didn't have to wear more armour than a medieval knight to fend off people in idiot boxes...
