I am a biker and proud of it (which in Britain means a motorcycle rider, a subtly different meaning from that used in the USA) - so for my US friends perhaps you should refer to me as "Motorcyclist Motorcyclist". I intend to focus mainly on motorcycle-related articles on Wikipedia. If I have a mission it is to clean up a large number of Wikipedia articles and write the odd new bike article.

I love bikes and own a good sized collection (but never a Hardley-Ableson!). Tomorrow my collection may be different as I believe one should acquire a different bike as often as one acquires new underpants. Although I don't currently own a car I have owned many over the years including some really odball ones during my years living in the USA.

What I don't love is muppetry, pomposity, spamming, self interest or conflict of interest. There are way too many examples of this on Wikipedia; I really enjoy weeding out these wankers and bad eggs by getting them blocked.

Stuff I have done[edit]

As of 1 January 2013 I have made more than 35,000 edits on Wikipedia. Articles I have created from scratch include:

Nice! --Biker Biker (talk) 05:07, 14 September 2012 (UTC)


I've been here for nearly 7 months, and altho I have had some compliments on some of my skills, you are the first to actually say you respect me. That felt pretty damn good, especially after all the disrespect everyone involved got at the Lake Michigan-Huron fiasco this week. Thanks a bunch! Gtwfan52 (talk) 10:07, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

You're very welcome. --Biker Biker (talk) 10:08, 16 September 2012 (UTC)
