Lisa Haneberg, who writes the Go Moto blog for Seattle Post-Intelligencer, wonders if it's wise to disclose that you're a biker during a job interview.

She asks the question...
Is riding a motorcycle something that would endear or alienate us?
I suppose it depends if on the interviewer. Perhaps the interviewer is a rider also. But then again, it's hard for you to know that ahead of time.

You could perhaps look around his/her office for signs, such as a Harley Davidson coffee cup, or a motorcycle calendar. Then you might strike up a pre-interview conversation about such item.

Otherwise, you don't have to disclose your riding habits, since it's illegal for the interviewer to ask.

Although these days, interviewers will run a Google search for your name anyways. They might already find out. That's what sucks about being a blogger.
