I agree I think I get snubbed by more BMW riders then Hardley's. I think they are afraid they will crash if they take thier hands of the bars.

You can't generalize. People who are assholes are assholes, and people who are not are not, regardless of the brand of bike they ride. I have seen plenty of examples of each, on Harleys, sport bikes and cruisers.



The only universally cool motorcyle people I meet are on the remote mountain trail on my dirt bike. I am not talking pit squids who never venture more than 1 mile from the truck, I am talking guys who are out there in the wilderness, riding and enjoying their dirt bikes. 100% coolness ratio to date, never been disappointed yet

I agree. I like all motorcycles. I have always had japanese bikes, but I rode harleys a lot between my second and third motorcycles as they were the only ones I could rent in my area. I really enjoyed riding them - except that I was always cramped (I am 6'4" and you can't modify a rental bike). The newer ones are cool and well made, the older ones are very cool.



Honestly, I don't understand why anyone would want a sport bike. They don't seem very comfortable or practical. I ride a Suzuki V-strom. But I enjoy riding with my friends with sport bikes and my friends with harleys. Although I have been dissapointed by both groups of friends recently.



One harley riding friend said he can't take his harley on a four hour trip to some twisty roads (deals gap) because he has lowered it so far it does not corner well. A sport bike friend says he can't go because he has no luggage space and it hurts to ride his bike more than an hour or two.



So it would be accurate to say I have a bias towards comfortable, practical motorcycles but no bias towards motorcycle riders. I wave at all motorcycles I pass on the road and would stop to help someone riding any kind of motorcycle. I also don't take other's brand loyalty personally.



I have to admit, however, I snub mopeds and small scooters. Not only don't I wave, I don't return their wave. Where I live, most people who ride a small scooter or moped do so because they got two or three DWI's and lost their license.



My guess is that you can parse any group into smaller groups. There will always be someone who says someone else does not belong.

My last post was more a reply to the previous post than the original question of the source of the animosity.



I think it is insecurity.

It's kinda like BMW cagers and porcupines, I guess. The way you tell them apart is that with the porcupine, the prick is on the outside.

Helmet law advocates are worse than child molesters who use dino instead of synthetic.



Just wanna see if we can hit 300 posts.
