Wink Not another crotch rocket.

Guy at work tells me "hey, I see you got a new bike. What? you got sick of having a crotch rocket?" yea, he rides a Harley and I had a Ducati last he knew. I just answered him with a smile and said "believe me this things plenty quick." What I should have said was "Yep! Switchin over to ICBM's instead of rockets!" I guess the saddle bags gave the RS a bit of a mild look to him....if he only knew. Actually, I'll probably have to show him sometime soon! He can look at my back the whole time we're ridin!

The Harley guys never cease to amaze me. When I had an R11RS, this guy asked me (total stranger mind you) why I didn't get a Harley instead. I asked him why I should and he replied that they were unique. I said that if I wanted to be like every other middle-aged dentist, yeah, I would have gotten one, but since I didn't, I got the BMW and that he had an interesting definition of the word unique.

You meet the weirdest people on a Harley.

Miles?

Just ask them what the mileage on their bike is. Where I live not 1 in 10 hawg riders puts more than 2k a year on their scoot. When I'm asked why I didn't get one I tell them I prefer to ride my motorcycle

Never cease to amaze....

Along those same lines.... I was at a stoplight on the GT.
Truck pulls up inside of me with a Harley "Road King" stuffed in the bed.
Driver looks over at me and says "You should have bought a Harley?".
I responded that "I did not have a truck big enough to haul it around in".
I do not think he got it as he stared at me with his dopey bandana head piece and mouth wide open.
Light turns green.... I am gone.

Stopped up in the mountains in Burney, CA yesterday to fill up the K12R before continuing my ride. An appropriately attired gent on his Screaming Eagle Road King pulled in and stopped; he looked over and said "What is that, BMW's sorry-assed attempt at building a Sportster?".....I honestly couldn't think of a reply!!

No, they would never try something that stupid.

i went riding with a friend, me on a CB750 Honda, he with a Sportster. Some guy in a pick up asked : Hey Harley rider, why you letting that jap crap ride with you?" I pulled his tail light out of the saddlebag , put it there when it vibrated off a few miles back, and said " Someone has to pick up the shit that falls off his POS when it falls off"

I can afford the Harley, but I don't have the money to buy all of the t-shirts that prove I'm an individual.

A smoking hole is a small price to pay for a bitchin' maneuver!

On the trip back from Daytona Bike Week one year, I was walking toward my bike in the parking lot after a meal break and this gentleman hurries up to me to let me know that the Gold Wing on the trailer was his. Best bike ever built he says and that he trailered it so it wouldn't get dirty!
