Yet over there... I've been a member for a little over a year and had 12 posts total & not a single post of mine disrespected anyone !! Yet still all **** broke loose. Nothing wrong with being rich and buying nice things .. just don't try & demean my bike because it's only worth a couple hundred bucks. I ride the **** out of my bikes I don't sit & ogle them and spend ore time on the forum than on my bike.
I'm with ya friend......
I ride a 2007 Harley Davidson soft tail custom and I will say its a very nice bike, I don't spend hours polishing it and shining every single piece of chrome, I do however clean it fairly good now and then, but living in the country like I do and down very dusty dirt roads all my vehicles stay dusty most of the time, that's just a way of life out here in the dry Texas country, I have seen several guys that spend way more time polishing there bikes chrome than they do riding and the only reason they ride is to be seen while trying to look cool...... just yuppie biker wanna be punks in my opinion and not true bikers, but hey....! to each their own.
One thing I never do is be critical of what someone else has, I don't care how junky and thrown together it is, if they enjoy it and they're happy with it, then that is all that matters, I dont even pretend to be the safety police and tell them they have a complete piece of crap that is gonna get them killed, I will point out what is obviously a safety hazard to a noob on here because so many may not really understand that what they have going on is a potential hazard, but there is a right way to do it, some people don't explain things in a way that will help someone to see that you are not dawg-in them but just trying to look out for there safety, some will just rip into someone in an arrogant way that would make someone think you were calling them out to be a complete idiot, when I see that I want to knock someone freaking head off......LOL! dang-it that stuff really ticks me off no reason to be so mean spirited with people, the Golden Rule should always be kept in mind, and we should treat others with respect and honesty just the same as we would want to be respected.
