Let's see if you can accomplish what he has accomplished, buckwheat. Then you can talk.



How many street-miles have you ridden in your life? A few thousand?

Uhhhhh.... don't worry. I knew you were being sarcastic. I thought that the "Please" was a pretty clear indicator. I wonder how many smiley faces Oscar Wilde or Mark Twain felt they had to use to get their point across.

well, once he polishes his chrome,

slips on the arm chaps and buttless leg chaps...

checks how the beer belly looks with the nice new denim shirt,

idiotic headrag covering a balding head in the mirror at home..

checks the shine on his nice new J.C. Whitney "MC" boots....

he's all tuckered out and HAS to go slow!!

to gather up strength to make it to the 'Lace' or 'bada bing'

whatever they call the strip club in his town.

one mile down the road..

So, you are saying that the guy that just finished a 15,000 mile trip in 27 days get tuckered out from dressing up his bike?

Default Why I Hate Harley Davidson Motorcycles

The funny part is, I despise the typical "Harley" crap as much as some other posters. The tattoo guys, the bars, the leather...not my scene at all. Having owned much faster and more technologically advanced bikes, I've never held any illusions about HD's performance and/or safety. But in spite of all that, there's not a bike on the planet I'd trade my 77 FXS for. Other bikes I'd like to own, but only as additions.



Also, I think some riders can't seem to relate to the idea that riding at slower speeds, enjoying the scenery or just the fresh air, can be as rewarding as hauling ass, dragging knees and hard parts on every curve. It's the sailboat versus go-fast analogy I used once before. One goes 10 knots, the other 40+, but they're both fun and have their own merit. I think the inability to grasp that concept is what blocks some riders from understanding that we can, and should, ride different bikes differently.

Default Re: Ride it like it should be.

Okay, I can see that. Having owned sportbikes and cruisers, I am a firm believer that the maneuverabilty and acceleration of a sporty bike can be safer. That was my initial reaction to the comment but I see now there is another angle...
