(WKRG/BIKER DAD/AP) — There’s a lot of talk about “real bikers” on motorcycle social media pages. I’m never one to call myself a “real biker.” I’m just a dude with a wife, four kids and a motorcycle.

But I ran across this image from the Associated Press made me question the idea altogether. The caption reads, “A motorcycle carrying a pig crosses a flooded road in Albay province, central Philippines due to Typhoon Vamco on Thursday, Nov. 12, 2020.

“Real bikers” are usually thought of as big tough dudes and Harleys and leather. But I doubt very few of us would have the guts to ride a bike through a typhoon (basically a hurricane) with a pig on board the bike…a very big pig. In my book, this guy is a “real biker.”
