Motorcycle Boy compares himself to Robin Hood, Jesse Hames, and the Pied Piper.
Motorcycle Boy finds out that the picture a photographer took of him was published in a magazine. Rusty-James says he can't wait to tell people. When he's responding to Rusty-James, Motorcycle Boy says he doesn't want him to tell people. He says:
"It's a bit of a burden to be Robin Hood, Jesse James, and the Pied Piper. I'd just as soon stay a neighborhood novelty, if it's all the same to you. It's not that I couldn't handle a larger scale. I just plain don't want to."
Rusty-James agrees with his brother about how people see him. Each person views the boy differently depending on their own background and biases. For some people, he's a hero. For others, an outlaw. For others, a charismatic leader. Rusty-James even says that the guys would have followed his brother anywhere.
These different personas show the varied sides of Motorcycle Boy. Though he's a criminal, he's intelligent and has his own set of strict morals. This intelligence translates into him being very persuasive and well-spoken, which encourages others to listen to him and do as he says.
