The second you swing a leg over a set of wheels you're prone to onlookers sticking you into a neat package of biker stereotypes. We know better than to try and categorize bikers based on their ride... But our shared imagery must come from somewhere. We spent a few days at Americade in early June, which gave us an interesting eye on a big cross-section of motorcyclists, and the chance to hunker down on the main drag for a visual survey of 212 motorcycle operators.

Over Memorial Day weekend, the World Superbike riders made the trip over the pond to join the AMA Pro Road Racing series at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, for three days of great racing.
