We have a new subdivision full of them.
They don't ride in the bike lanes, even though the lanes are almost as wide as the car lanes, and they are also too good to follow the traffic laws. They ride side by side and take up the whole lane that they travel in, and block cars behind them.
Someday, if they do get a motorcycle, it will be a BMW R1200GS dual sport that will only go as far as the nearest Starbucks, and they and their bikes will look like a moving Touratech advertisement.
Sadly, they never seem to get the fact that no one cares, and they never really have any fun in their lives.
I can have fun in my 67 Cougar, or riding my old 78 Goldwing, or playing around with a cheap motor on an even cheaper bicycle. (All these are recycled
, so hybrid owners can blow it out their exhaust!)
Life's to short to worry about impressing people that don't even matter!
