Since I’ve been donning biker garb for…well, let’s just say it’s been more than ten years, but less than fifty, they’ve become into such an ingrained part of my identity that they’re almost indistinguishable from a second skin. On the other side, I also have a job that requires me to dress professionally, so I can’t wear my leather jacket or my ripped jeans to work. I’m perfectly at ease in a suit, just as I am when I’m wearing a leather jacket or vest, jeans, boots, and other clothing items. Not that I’m complaining, of course. When I’m really out on the trail is where I’ll make my point. On the weekends and days off, I’ll ride with the biker gear, but on weekdays, I ride to work wearing a suit (I did attempt at one point to change in the office, but it simply wasn’t feasible). On the weekends and days off, I’ll ride with the biker gear.
This is nothing out of the ordinary; I know quite a few other folks that engage in the same behavior. But here’s the thing: when people see me riding my bike, they respond in a variety of different ways. And certainly, it is the brand that comes to mind first when someone mentions a biker; but, I am not going to write it here every time I talk about my bike since it is the brand that comes to mind first. It’s possible that one day I’ll write anything about my bike, but it’s also possible that I won’t; I guess we’ll have to wait and see whether I find myself in the mood to chat about her.
There seems to be a correlation between the clothing I wear and the responses I get from other people for some inexplicable reason. It had to be the clothes, seeing as how I am the same person and the bike is the same; the only thing that has changed is the clothing that I am wearing. I’m sure the majority of you are familiar with the response I get on the weekends: the waves, the girls giving me appreciative looks (no, I’m not imagining them; at least that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it), and probably the look from young children that says they want to be just like me when they grow up. This is probably my favorite reaction. Yes, I like that appearance; it has a reverent air about it that simply makes you feel like you should be on top of the world. You understand what I am getting at.
Now, on the other hand, there’s the situation in the morning while I’m driving to work. The number of glances has decreased, and they are shorter overall. People (girls? ), when they look at me, don’t give the impression that they are envious or that they care very much. The majority of the time, they will only glance at you before looking away. And then there are the stares, which may be taken to mean anything from “You may be riding that bike, but there’s nothing unique about you, you’re still just an office worker like me,” to “You may be riding that bike, but there’s nothing exceptional about you.”
Now, I don’t want anybody to get the incorrect idea about what I’m saying. It’s true that I like the attention I receive when I’m dressed out in all of my gear, but it’s also true that I don’t let it bother me while I’m at work—all I’m doing here is making an observation. And most likely a reinforcement of the influence that biker outfits have on the world around us, as well as the reason why many of us, regardless of whether or not we ride, are drawn to them in a particular way.
