Motorcycle Slang Part: 1

Here at AK Motors we truly believe that motorcycle riders have their own culture. Today we would like to discuss a couple of phrases that people may not be familiar with.

Brain Bucket: This is a what we call helmets, that’s where your brain goes….

Megaphone: A modified or aftermarket exhaust. Usually louder than the stock exhaust this earning the name of a “megaphone”

Gixxer: A motorcycle manufactured by suzuki. Originally names GSX-R but saying “GEE ES EX AR” bikers have quickly named it gixxer. It just rolls off the tongue.

Naked: A motorcycle without fairings (all that plastic around your legs). Has mechanical parts exposed. while some are manufactured in this manner, others are given this look.

That’s it for today. Study up on your phrases and don’t forget to keep the dirty side down.
