This thesis examines the registers contained in the motorbike bike community. This study focuses on the word register found in the group WhatsApp motorcycle community Honda Street Fire Community Jombang (HSFCJ). The purpose of this study was to determine the registers used by the motorcycle community and to explain the register functions used by the motorcycle community found in WhatsApp group chats. This is a descriptive qualitative research and data are taken from group whatsapp conversations, observations, and interviews with community members on motorcycle. The study participants were all members of the motorcycle community and five group members interviewed. The study was conducted by researchers for two months, March and April. As a result the researcher found thirty two register words used by HSFCJ members. From the thirty two register data, the researcher found three types of registers used in this motorcycle community. They are fourteen registers in Indonesian, seventeen registers in English, and one register in Java. The researcher obtained the register function used by this motorcycle community. The interview results show that there are four register functions used by group members. They are functions (1) to show intimacy, (2) to show prestige, (3) to increase solidarity, and (4) to show identity. Overall, from the findings of this study, the researcher has proven that registers exist at Honda Street Fire Community Jombang (HSFCJ). This research was able to reveal the word register used in the motorcycle community. Then each word register has meaning and function. The researcher suggests to the next researchers who might conduct research in the field of registers to analyze other elements and use other methods. There are many ways to do research in the register field at different points of view. Subsequent researchers can also combine other theories to find new results. Other communities can also be an interesting new object to study.
