Default Great read - My own story of biker hospitality.

I had a run in with the Harley boys when I mad the mistake of taking my wife just after we got married to Rapid City the week of Sturgis (I didn't ride back then) Everywhere my wife and I went there was a column of bikers hooting and whistling at my wife. Ya see she has nice body and loves to wear tube tops etc. One night at a campground a few of Harley's best decided to invite themselves into our campsite and RV. Good thing I had my buddy Mr 12 Guage. I guess they forgot to read my Dad's NRA sticker on his RV. Hard to say if this is why I hate Harleys and Racing V-Twins.

Can't you just picture the fringe-leather-vested-chained-to-the-belt-loop-walleted-tatooed-do-ragger hunched over an RC51 with a race-rep-helmeted-flamboyant-multi-colored-cartoon-hero-full-suited-knee-pucker chuffin along behind him on a springer?! Now that just makes me smile . . . . . . big!

Unfortunatly this type of rude/agressive behavior by cruiser types is not restricted to or against other motorcycles only . My sister, who lives in Montana and has had to travel thru Sturgis during this time in a car, has told me of how she will never go thru there again becuse of the m/c riders. She has been cut off while attempting to pass m/c groups travelling well under the speed limit, has had them speed up after passing, then slow her down again to make her drive at their speed, then threaten her with gestures. While this may seem like fun or harmless amusement to some, it is intimidating and rude behavior to others on the road. Yes, sport riders (I'm one)usually go too fast (though not all) but once they are past they are gone and no danger to anybody except themselves. The few rude Harley/cruiser types(not all) bring motorcycling back to the "bad old days" and invite the ire of the general public thus wasting years of effort to present themselves as "good people". This type of behavior is really not necessary. So live and let live, there's room for everybody to do their own thing without being being nasty. JM-1

Default I think I read that letter in Penthouse

Nothin' finer than a 13 year old boy and his mom out enjoying the open road.

I wish. It was actually pretty scary for my wife and I. We filed a report with the sheriff. It happened in 1992 I think.

Yeah, I agree. But the thing that really gets under my skin (having lived for some time near Laconia, and having been to a couple of those rallies) is this: you find out who these people are and it becomes apparent that the biggest a$$holes out there are the ones who bought the image brand-spanking-new at a dealership and wear it around like it gives them the right to act like hardasses. What could be further from the truth? ARRGH. GMAFB, man. It's even kind of comical: you've got a rally full of creampuffs acting like they're hard. Except they all know two things: First, they're really not. Second, 1 in 10 of the people they see, is. So everyone's got this fake I'm-a-hardass-don't-f**k-with-me vibe, with an undertone of fear about pissing off the wrong person. It almost makes me want to start a fight, just to see who stays and who goes. Seems to me I'd have the street to myself (except for the ten 1%ers beating my butt with drive-chains).



That said, see my earlier post for my latest stance on the issue.
