Harley Riders

Rode a 250 mile round trip today on the busa and it cracks me up how Harley riders look at my bike like it should not be on the same road with them....

I just bought a 2013 HD Night Rod Special. I love this thing. Comfotable, sporty, in a bad-assery kinda way.

I also have an 07 gsxr 600, 08 gsxr 600, '11 gsxr 750 and an 07 gsxr 1000. All roadrace bikes except the 1000 does see some street duty.

What i hate about the harley is that every harley or japcruiser feels the need to wave at me. Just stop it cause im not waving back. Lol

Everybody on a motorcycle waves at each other. You're not special...

I ride my cbr to Venice Louisiana pretty good bit. Its a six hour trip. Around 400 miles one way. You learn little adjustments and things one can do to make your trip more comfortable. Long live the sportbike road trip riders.

waivers

Seems like these days the only waivers are the sportbike riders. There's a lot more bikes on the road today. I don't waive anymore unless its a sportbike honestly. A cruiser bike that waives is most likely a weekend riders. Which is cool.

I wave at everyone except mopeds lol, but when HD riders look at me and continue on, that wave turns to a flip.

I don't like people...in general, at all.

You are lucky I even posted this.

I fart in your direction.

It may be the streamers.


I mean, I like them for you, but others? Not so much.

I wave at all bikes, whether they wave back or not! It's called being friendly to your fellow human beings!....something that's sadly lacking in this world, these days!

And I couldn't give what people think of my ride.....I like it and that's all that matters to me! Ride YOUR ride and live YOUR life!

Yeah I wave at pretty much anything besides little scooters as well. Hate to stereotype but MOST harley riders have this ego that their is to cool. Thats why i turn into a school girl everytime I get the chance to sit at a redlight next to one.
