Harley weekend warrior sighting.

I was working some richy rich banquet last night and some guy comes up to my bar and asks for a few drinks... I started shooting the **** with him in hopes he'd slip me a 5 or somethin nice and somehow we got to motorcyles. The guy tells me he rides a bike, so I'm curious and ask "what do you ride then"?...

He says something like "the ONLY bike there is". I know exactly where this is going, but I decide to mess with him and say "oh ya? I have a sport bike too" and then started talking about it. He just kinda stared at me as I was making drinks and talking about my bike and when I get back over to him he says "I ride a harley". I say "oh thats cool I pass a lot of those on the highway, tell me about yours".

He got that stupid look on his face, the kind where somebody calls you out and you dont know what to say. so he says "i'll tell you all about it when I come back up, my wife probobly wants her drink".

He didnt leave a tip, and his wife came up to the bar the rest of the night... hah.

what an asshat you would think he would share the passion of motorcyling with any fellow enthusiast. He probably just rides around to bars so he can show everybody what an outlaw suit on monday guy he is.

Touring on a real motorcycle versus touring on a Harley.

i had something similar happen this weekend...

mine wasnt a harley dude but this guy doesnt even qualify as a "weekend warrior". I was DD for a few Gf's Friday night and at this party i get introduced to a guy as "the girl who rides motorcycles"...he proceeds to tell me how cool that is and then says (word for word) "Have you ever heard of the Suzuki Hayabusa? Its like the fastest sb made..." it took everything I had to not laugh in the poor guys face!!! I just looked at him and said, "yeah, my husband rides a busa, i ride the Honda 600RR." He bout fell out!!! The look on his face was just priceless!!! When he recovered he was telling me about selling it cuz it was too fast, blah blah, and some stories bout what he used to do on it...

He and his ex gf bought cruisers after he sold it and he is trying to sell me he old gf's cruiser, that he bought this spring and it ONLY HAS 600 MILES!!! I was like, wait a second, how many does yours have?? his reply, umm about 2000...i just looked at him, shook my head, and said "and you call yourself a rider??"

maybe it was funnier in person, but i giggled about it all weekend,

"hey, have you ever heard of..."

I don't bash any riders based on what they ride. I am not prejudiced at all. BUT I will bash them on how they ride!!!

It is a shame that some call themselves riders and enthusiast as they load their bikes into a trailer heading to a show.

It is a shame how some think the purpose of bike ownership is so they have something to talk about to their friends to make themselves seem adventerous.

It is a shame if you think of your ride as a fashion statement and dress accordingly. (Know any biker pirates that are actually execs or Doctors?)

I'm know the poser element exists in both cruiser and sportbike crowds but they do make themselves ridiculous.

If your saying you have chaps and wear them with mirrored shades, a bandana and vest/jacket with fringe I am still gonna laugh! Especially if they have flames on them...

naw...just the mirrored shades under my helmet...unless I have the helmet with the mirror visor on...

The only chaps I have are protective for "chain sawing" and they have kevlar, not leather

I am a Bank VP and people give the weirdest looks when I pull up on a ZX6R, tug off my Shoei Oliver rep, and unzip the bug colored leather jacket!

I am looking at a Harley though...If they bring the revamped and XR750 styled 1200 Sportser stateside (I am almost positive they will) I would consider it over a Buell. I sure would oneday love to do some Flattracking...
