    Huh...never met a poor "hipster". Better read the first few paragraphs of the article- hipster defined.

    GREAT article though.

    I was very glad to see that motorized bikes got some press on Motorcycle.com. I didn't see electric assisted bikes on the list. Not for hipsters, I guess.

    It's not the bike.
    Everything I ride is cool because I ride it like a Maniac.

    Not so sure what a hipster is but everything I ride is ‘mo cool cuz’ it’s me on the throttle! My point is no thing is hip. But the inanimate may become hip because of the character that controls said unanimated object.

    Example: Superbike hip or not ... parked it’s a sculpture. On the highway being driven by an idiot it’s the most insane looking dangerous death machine man ever put on two wheels. So what is it at the Isle of Man TT?

    **Note LabRat is more full of his person than most should imagine – just sayin.

    I love how they said "Vintage Vespas" and they put a picture of a modern 4 stroke 50cc Vespa on there. Makes me think they don't know what the h3ll they are talking about...

    Seems like Hipster is a very nebulous term. I've never actually met anyone that could accurately define a Hipster. Someone told me it started on the west coast.

    I think it's interesting that the article keeps referring to Hipsters as people to have tons of money and trust funds. I think the people or "hipsters" at least the ones in the article are people that are taking the old and making it new and usable and not often spending tons of money to do it. Some if not a lot of the bikes they show are at the low end of the money spectrum. Old Honda's, Scooters, Mopeds, Motorized Bicycles, Ural, even the Harley Sportster. All of these are on the low end as far as money is concerned. The trend is economical transportation that you can make your own whether it's building it, modifying it etc... Sorry soapbox

    Except they don't do that, they pay for it to be done. Like I said, MOST of them don't know which end of a screwdriver to hold onto.
    They don't do it to preserve the old, they do it because "it's hip to have a vintage/odd motorcycle" hence the word "hipster".

    Also, since when are Sportsters/Urals/Goldwings/Royal Enfields/Vintage bikes low end bikes?
