HD owner fell in love with my Versys.

The guy was buying my ATV, mentioned he had a Harley, then noticed my Green '15, and went nutzo over it. When he brought his 18 y/o daughter (hottie, super cute, in yoga pants..grrrrr) back to trailer the ATV home, he took her directly to the Versys to show it to her. I may have converted an HD owner!!!

Tell that cheating bastard to stay in his own lane. But leave the daughter.

I dunno... I'm thinking the Versys would be more loyal than the daughter.

Good chance the 18 year old daughter would do the same but at least you would go out smiling......

Far less expensive, as well. Only costs a few dollars to make a motorcycle eventually go away...

My guess is when they throw dirt on my face.

I'm old not dead, but it's best to keep my eyes open & mouth shut.

Umm, many of us Harley owners also own other styles of bikes. Adventure bikes are a hot commodity. Many own a BMW R1200GS parked beside their Harley. Harley riders have always appreciated my Concours 1400, but my '11 Versys was too much "bug-like" for many riders of all brands of bikes.

No photos, didn't happen.

To an old guy like me, a girl in yoga pants or leggings is like a girls from my day walking around in public with just their pantyhose on. At least back then we were allowed to vocalize our appreciation of the female form. Now, you better not get caught looking never mind speaking. Of course if the subject of your appreciation finds you attractive then it is not harassment for some strange reason.

I should've taken a pic of an 18 yo's butt in yoga pants? Her Daddy woulda' stomped me into a gooey pile of bloody organs! And, having daughters and g'daughters, I wouldn't blame him a bit. Shakira doing the 1/2 time superbowl show last night was enough to rock my world!! WOW!

My 2015 V converted a Harley owner a couple of years ago....I let him ride it for about 45 minutes around my rural area, just a joy ride....came back, emphatically told his wife his back didn't hurt at all.....within two weeks, the guy called me and said he was selling his Harley to get a 650. I encouraged him to look at the 1000 since he intended to take his wife a lot. They now appreciate the slight amount of extra room of the 1000. So fast forward a year or so and he rides my R3 around.....next thing I know, he's bought a Ninja 400 and hasn't looked back. Unfortunately for the dealership he worked with, they still have his Harley on the floor for sale. I was rather astonished at all this as he was pretty danged die hard. I don't know if he's gonna cover his Harley tat with a big green K or not.

GOOD work! An H-D guy driving a pickup pulled up to me and my '09 V650 in the Yukon in '15 to instruct me that IT was dangerous, because it didn't weigh ENOUGH.

I have to admit to thinking that the WHOLE half-time show was NOT appropriate for the children watching!

I sure enjoyed it! Shakira and Jlo are close enough to my age that I don't have to feel ashamed of myself.
