About This Quiz

There is no such thing as a "family motorcycle." Almost no one buys a motorcycle because they are practical. Motorcycles exist because they are cool, because they are a pleasure to ride, and because they make us feel good just thinking about them! Motorcycles can be tied to history, as with the original Indian motorcycles, Harley-Davidson motorcycles, or even brands like Buell, which disappeared years ago but whose bikes look like they were designed yesterday.

At could be argued that riders go for specific two-wheelers for specific reasons. A scooter makes sense if you live someplace like Bermuda, where the small roads have low speed limits and you're rarely riding for more than a few minutes at a time. Long legged touring bikes that look like a fridge on wheels make sense in places like the American southwest, where the roads are long and straight and if you're going for a long ride, you had better be comfortable. Sport bikes are weirdly popular in cities, even ones without tracks or sympathetic speed limits. Street fighters are probably your thing if you came of age in the 1990s, and dirt bikes might be in your garage if you're an outdoorsman.

But what about the color of your bike? We think we've got that licked. Take this quiz and we'll guess the color of your motorcycle!
