OK...so this a sportbike forum right...well, for all of us who have gripes of one form or another about the hogs, lets hear em!!!
It's supposed to be about riding, but some peeps just refuse to see it that way..which pisses me off as well. I dont care what you ride, I'll still wave to you, out of respect to a fellow rider. I may not like or care for what you ride, but so what, its respect issue in my mind..UGH..!!fatburg said:This might be silly, but the waving thing just boggles me. I have a cruiser and a sport and I wave to everyone. when I am on my Vulcan, 99% of the other riders wave back, few exceptions of the die-hard HD'ers that actually can tell the difference. But since I have had my sport....it's completely reversed, about 99% of the cruisers don't return the gesture.
Dang, I thought it was about riding, guess I was wrong.
And now it appears everyone has something against my cruiser...haha. The HD guys hate that's it's not "American Made" and the sporties complain about it being loud, heavy and slow...man I can't win...haha. Ah well, I'll just keep on ridin and keep on :hi: no matter which one I'm on.
at least you get some satisfaction from riding the mower, and not just a bow-legged stance, and soar arse afterwards from the hogs!! :lol:Gas Man said:I think saying that is a compliment. I mean the nice riding Exmark Lazer 60" mower I have at work will damn near do that speed, in 1 gear, in about a 30ft. It will even lay a better patch of rubber than the HD, turn better than ANYTHING! Not to mention all while cuttin the grass to look like a PGA golf coarse. :thumbs:
Funny how im sure anyone of us can come with 100 stories of talking to hog riders who complain about constantly having to work on their rides, but if you ask anyone of them to try anything but a harley, they'll shoot u down in a heartbeat. to each his own i guess right?!Mojo said:I wouldn't mind a V-Rod if it were on clearance for 1/2 off. Those Porsche engineers didn't do too bad with it. If it were able to compete with my much cheaper V-maxes, I'd probably own one.
On the other side, I've had more maintenance issues with my V-Maxes than I'd care to discuss. I'm always working on those things. The Pasta rockets are the only bikes in the shop that I can always count on not to give me any problems.
Gas Man said:Mojo, I'm with on this one! I'd take a V-rod. Those are badass. And the #1 reason why they rock so much is because they're barely a HD.
