Cyclist vs. Biker

Don't call me a biker, i am a cyclist. Here are some helpful hints to distinguish the two on the road:

Cyclists wear spandex, nylon and polyester - Bikers ride in denim and leather
Cyclists prefer a quiet ride - bikers love to hear the Hog set off car alarms
Most cyclists wear helmets during a ride - most bikers believe hard hats are for pansies
Cyclists ride from coffee shop to coffee shop - bikers ride from tavern to tavern
Bikers use their wrist muscles for propulsion - cyclists use quads, hams, calves, feet, ankles, hips, back, abs, arms, etc., etc.
Cyclists often head out at 7am - bikers head home
Cyclists shave their legs - bikers....c'mon!
