So I'm sitting at a light tonight and a Harley pulls up behind me. For the next 90 seconds or so I'm rewarded with the sounds of Vroooom....Vroooooooom....Vroooooom...and so on.
Yeah, your bike makes noise, very nice.
Low and behold, another Harley turns left in front of us, and I **** you not, he's got the clutch half pulled in so that while he's turning, he's also making noises.....Vroooom....Vroooom, now in stereo...Vrooooooom...... It was silly, and insane. Maybe it's the vibrations, perhaps it feels so good it tickles their assholes just right or something. There must be SOME reason a good number of Harley riders insist on revving the piss out of their motors while standing still.
Second observation, 70% of Harley riders in my area do not wave back. I don't know if this is because:
A; I'm not on a Harley therefore I'm not cool enough to warrant the trouble of waving.
B; They're holding on for dear life and dare not let go of the bars for fear of losing control.
C; They're in their own world and simply don't give a rats ass about waving to other riders.
Harley riders seem to shop an awful lot at Harley dealerships. I mean, how else can you get a complete matching outfit of Harley T shirt, Harley sunglasses, Harley jeans, Harley gloves, Harley boots, a Harley bandanna and a handful of HD decals for good measure?
Finally, while at work and not on a bike where I can get around them, I'm often held up by groups of Harley riders going down the fast lane at say 54mph holding up a 1/4 mile string of traffic for miles and miles. I now see why these bikes are called HOGS. WTF, move out of the way please. I mean, I know your bike cost 3X the Versys and weighs 2.5X the Versys yet has LESS BHP, but come on, it's got to be able to move down the highway in the fast lane at say.....65mph, isn't it?
