It's the same with cars, the people you speak of buy what they have been presured into by their peer group, and then spend the entire time they own it trying to justify their descision by belittleing everyone else who did not make the same choice.



The rest of us on the other hand bought a motorcycle because we like to ride and really don't care what the rest of the MOrons are riding. anyone who activly looks to find fault with other peoples harmless day to day choices is just looking for self validation.



Honestly we are really just talking about a genre choice, might as well debate the virtues of country music vs rock & roll vs rap. in the grand scheme of things I can't think of much that makes less sense.



Flame on, all you loosers who don't ride a TRIUMPH!!!

Fear the guy with the briefcase more than the guy with the gun. The guy with the gun will only get what money you have on you...

You're one of the 'funniest' guys around.

I own a 2003 ZRX1200R Kawasaki...a "sporty standard" in my book. The Harley riders call it a "rice rocket race replica". The Sport bike owners call it an "old man's bike", that is too heavy and too slow. The touring riders call it too small and impractical. Can't win? Frankly, I don't care, because I like the bike more than anything else on the road. If I could afford 3 bikes, I'd own a Harly and a Ducati too...but I can't, so I am stuck with my slow/fast, sporty/frumpy, light/heavy bike!

It's not about the bike. The badass Hells Angel lookalike is just as ridiculous looking as the ricerocket guy in his faux racing colors all covered with patches. The only really cool rider is the old fart on his Gold Wing with the wife up back. She does the waving, but only if she feels like it, and neither of them give a ***** what you think. Neat.

No, I don't salute them: I figure they have bigger problems than I do if they can't even acknowledge a friendly wave to say "keep the faith." But to keep this in perspective, it's a small number who do this & I have had a number of Harley riders strike up conversations with me. Last summer, talked with Harley rider who was checking out the soft luggage on my 'Max. We talked for half an hour & he asked lots of LDR questions (I was on a 2k journey). Very nice person. It takes all kinds, even if some of the kinds are ill-tempered, petty, and not too bright.

Some people are posers and d!cks and they don't even own a bike. So why make the distinction when they do ?

Don't believe the hype ... on or off the bike. And re-cycle solar dolphins.
