The best guitar riffs just kind of stick with you. For example, I can go down pretty much any list of "The Greatest Guitar Riffs of All Time" and remember where I was and what I was doing the first time I heard that particular song. To some people, the lyrics or words of the song are what get 'em hooked. For me, it's usually the intro of the song that either turns me on..or off.

Every musician dreams of being remembered as being the guy behind a cool, memorable riff that every guitar playing wannabe wants to learn to play. Who knows if or when that day will come; we just have to keep keep playing and hoping that it does.
