We all know one, the hardcore rider that rides against reason and weather. Who is he/her?

I have to tell about this guy at my work. Hes 60ish and rides a Yammy Venture cruiser thing. He gave me the tour of it and it was nuts. AM/FM cassette, hitch, wireless thingies everywhere (you get it). I figgered hes just another fair weather cruiser guy (like the harley guy that works there too). But this guy is HARDCORE! He has a truck which ive never seen, he only rides. We had a hurrricane baring down on us and we were getting off when the rain and winds started. I drove that day, he rode anyway and battled the wind and rain. It was 35 and freezing driving rain, i drove to work and his bike was already parked out front. He also owns NO harley stuff. He rides in layers of carhart work suits if its cold and a full face flip up helmet always. His wife is on oxyagen (sp) so he pulls a trailer of it and she sits there hooked up while they ride. Hes on his 3rd Venture and already has more miles than i do. His son bought a sportster from indiana and he flew up there and rode it back last september. This guys the real deal and thought id share. :dthumb:

I worked with a guy in the Air Force out in Utah that was a Harley guy. He rode year round. At prediction of first snow, he would put the sidecar on his bike and ride like that until spring. But he rode ALL the time and in ALL weather.

My dad was telling me about a guy he used to work with, he had an old haley and would ride to work in ANYTHING. Snow, rain, freezing rain, you name it. This was way back in the day (late 60's). He only owned a bike, so it was his only mode of transportation.

Some people have more balls than brains

There is a guy at my job Frank, and no matter what kind of weather it is he will ride one of his Road Kings to work... I think he could live "in" one of them.... if that was possible...

His name is Vince,
I grew up with Vince and rode dirt bikes as kid's together.
He always loved the Harley's
I got a Ninja 600R and he had to have one! He worked all summer full time, part time during school and saved.
Bought a 500 Ninja in early spring, rode it all summer and still wonted a Harley.
He continued to save, sold his pickup that his dad gave him and traded the 500 for a Sportster.
He rode that thing for 2 years before he got another cage.
He still has that Sportster along with a SoftTail Deuce and a big Heritage Classic.

YES we still ride together when I feel like putting around so he can keep up! :lol:
