Hipsters? We Don't Need No Stinkin' Hipsters

However, this column, from Motorcycle.com, "Top 10 Hipster Motorcycles," appears to get how hilarious the new gen of semi-motorcyclists really are. "On pre-fab cafĂ© racers they zip around, oblivious and/or indifferent. They race through parking lots, pass on the right, split lanes perilously and make rights on reds without envisioning a stop, all the while checking themselves out in rearview mirrors and storefront windows. Taunting their parents’ insurance deductibles is sport to these insufferable imps. It used to be that biker gangs gave motorcyclists a bad name. These days, it’s all we can do to keep from swatting at the maddening horde." Don't worry, dude. Biker gangs are still giving us a bad name.

I do wish this statement was true, though, "Hipsters love anything vintage. If someone’s grandpa wore it, read it, used it or rode it, a hipster’s gotta have it." I have a house full of "vintage" stuff that I'm trying to get rid of.
