You forget that most do everything they can to make them run worse, be as loud as possible....so they can make their statement. You also now know why they ride 20mph under the speed limit.
They are also a very thin skinned bunch, quick to lash out with well you can't afford it, or you are not a real american, or well your bike made 40 years ago is on par with my new hardly ableson.
It is the attitude of them that really ticks me off. As well as the wealth of mis-information they spew from their holes.
Any motorcycle is really if you get down to it a toy, a statement, sure you might justify it to your wife as it uses so much less gas then your minivan....but you are making a statement.
ADV riders look like a rolling traffic cone, there is a real practical reason behind that.....someone tell me just how your dew rag is going to do something for you after that 17yr old girl pulls out while she is texting her BFF.
I don't have anything against HD....their riders are pretty much idiots....or they lie to themselves.
Lots of truth there...TO me, I just dont like the idea of Not wearing a full face helmet for the simple fact , I see all the bugs splattered on my shield.. Gross!L
The group I ride with are part of our church group, we all joke with one another, jap bikes suck, Harleys are for fat old people, etc.. But that it it's all just jokes. In the end, Im the only jap bike (when Im riding the Versys) in the group although some Euros are in there.. It's always a good time. Interesting though, I am the only one who ever rides atgatt, the Beemers at least have full faced helmets.
My Helmet is Bright Green, and White, I have two Jackets, A high vis Yellow, and a Bright red.. I really dont care how goofy I look, I want to be seen. With Harleys, its black, Everything is black..Not the best scenario for making yourself visible to the masses.
