If somebody decides to skip the crashes, can they still wear the bad gear?

If you get a new helmet do you need to get a new dog?

I bought my first H-D two years ago. The choice between a CB750, Sv650 and 883 Sporster was made on resale value. I will trade soon as the ride is too harsh; but the comments and looks are usually positive. I had a Toyota van years ago when the look they had was way radical for a van of that period. Folks would always ask how I liked it. Well the truth was it way awful and I let them know. Same with the ride on the sporty. Nice to throw around and have some fun with; but don't go for too long or your butt will beg you to stop. So it's time to trade for a comfortable sporty ride. Any suggestions?

Right on! I ride a cheap Jawa to work daily. At first I felt proud because I thought I couldn't care less what other bikers would think of me. Then I noticed when I got in a conversation with another biker, I just couldn't prevent telling them I had a beemer and a honda in the garage as well... Image, yes. OTOH I don't care at all what non-bikers think about it.

I've always heard true sportbikers are "different". I just never heard one admit it.

Sorry, I'll take being smart, alert and skilled while you crash test your gear.

I said "leather" not "MotorClothes".



Do you always see things that aren't written?

And you've talked to most HD riders?



Where I live most HD riders are at least wearing leather. Most of the sportbike clowns are sporting windbreakers and ballcaps.



Everyone streetriding a sportbike is a poser. Sportbikes are unsuited for the street. So if you are riding the gixxer in power ranger gear you are a poser every bit as as pathetic as the accountants on the HDs with the fake tattoos.



Note: That last statement is hyperbole. I was just wondering how you like insulting generalities when the generality is aimed at your particular niche.

I wonder how much of a reward I could get for turning Seruzawa Koresh here over to the Thought Police?
