I thought everyone knew to do that , Pat.

I was at the Little League park with my son and a goup of kids were all standing around my bike, twisting the throttle and looking at the gauges. I walked up to them just slid the key in and started the bike up.. Twisted the throttle a few times and shut it down. I looked at the kids and asked "Any questions?" I swear a kid asked me....

" IS that your bike?"



I shook my head and told the kids not to touch the bike , it could fall over and break some ones leg.

I park my HD in gear, but have learned why many owners don't. I have an alarm on mine so it will not start without me next to the bike. A lot of the HD's are keyless and you just flip the switch and can start the bike. Since HD doesn't have any safety features it will start in gear with the kickstand down. The bike will jump forward then fall when some dumbass wants to play like he knows what he is doing.

I'm really sorry to hear about this.
And to think that the guy he was there talking too owned a bike that was behind mine. I just can't believe that he had no problem with the guy keying my bike. I have more people act out at me because they think it is a "Harley" attitude instead of just common courtesy and common sense.

Do I open people's car doors and sit in the seat or climb on their hood and sit there ?? I just don't get why people think they can just mess with my bike... just because you're intrigued and jealous because you wish you had one does not give you the right. *deep breath* Sorry, had to let that out.
I knocked a out at a walmart about a month ago for sitting on my and fawking with my gears and what not. I came out of the store , saw him on my , and I reacted with a fist to his face, He was sleeping for a while.

it's been years since I saw someone near my ride. I don't really leave it anywhere that might happen. but if I DO see anyone on it, I'm calling 911 and my pistol in his ear, felony take-down style. to the pavement, held until the cops arrive. "you're not stealing it? then why are you on it then"?

Exactly what I was going to suggest. GORILLA make a very nice cycle alarm that is loud, etc. It can detect vibration (like someone tapping on it) or movement (someone leaning it off the kickstand), and also any electrical changes (key, lights, etc.).. I've been VERY happy with mine!!

Yeah, I hear ya. Usually they're the young and stupid who act that way, thinking sportbikes are the only real bikes. I admit I make jest of HD riders, but it's all in jest. It goes the other way around too, with some HD bikers having the same attitude towards sportbikers, or even metric cruisers. As you know, I have alot of HD and cruiser friends

id be too. ive been lucky so far, nobody's pulled that stunt on my bike. i see kids gawk at it at work and a couple of times theyll touch it, but the parents have sense enough to get ahold of their children and keep them from climbing on it. i dont mind people looking or staring, its gonna happen, especially kids. thats why i dont mind to much when the little ones touch it, i just dotn want them climbing on it because i dont want them to get hurt. but if a grown man puts his nasty on my bike, im gonna say something. HE should know better.
