How do you roll ?

I know of a few people that won't ride with there buddies and there friends because of bike style difference. Example being Rockets and other Sport Bikes only, no Cruisers, or vice versa. Just wondering what everyone's general opinion about that was. Personally, I don't care. if it has 2 wheels, I'm in. Although I prefer sportbikes just cuz we generally have more a need for speed and the twisties more so than the cruisers..but i'll ride with whoever if I get the chance.

I generally only roll with sportbikes but that is only due to I know and reguarly ride with. I have rolled with a occasional cruiser and even a Hog as long as they keep up! Heck Rev, in WOS, rolls on a dual sport...

Man, it is so embarassing, I usually have to ride in the back with the cruisers until I learn to keep up!!! But it doesn't matter, It's all about the RIDE!! At least our group will wait for us at the stop signs.

First bike I will buy will be more sporty, but when that's paid for I want to get a cruiser too. Seeing as both have their place, I don't care what you're on I just wanna go too!

I ride solo. So, it doesn't matter. Otherwise, I would prefer sportbikes. Cruisers are just too slow.

My daughter thinks my screen name is pathetic which it is.

Sorry it's a little off topic, but she is bugging the heck out of me lately. She is standing right here, and she sneaked in. :nono:

Here she is...

I mainly ride with sport bikes. It doesnt matter to me though... i just have more in common with those guys, and I seem to meet a lot more ppl on sportbikes than cruisers. My dad rides a harley.. I have no problem riding with anyone. As long as I'm on my bike and I'm cruising down the road.... there is a smile on my face

I ride with anyone who wants to ride...though who I ride with occasionally determines on which bike I'm going to roll on. I need a dirtbike to complete the trifecta
