A rant on poser ass Harley riders
Last night I took my wife riding with me for V-day, we rode a few miles and night came and I had a couple of cagers politely tell me that my back bulb was not burning any more. I didn't want to ride it home this was because if I had two different cagers tell me that the bulb was out it was only a matter of time before a cop noticed too.

I went to the nearest auto store, which was an Advance Auto and bought some new bulbs, borrowed a screwdriver from the store toolbox and figured we'd be on our way. Turns out the ground wire were broke and I needed to do surgery in the parking lot, no problem, Advance had the tools and parts and some great guys working there that night, very helpful.

So I'm working on the bike and this guy zooms in on a Road King with the radio blasting Foo Fighters. I look up, kind of smile and he parks right next to us. I mean right next to us, I could literally feel the heat from his pipes. He's in his late 40ís early 50ís, wearing chaps, gloves, a leather jacket, riding boots, and a full face helmet with graphics on it like what crotch rocket riders may wear. He gets off the bike takes off his gloves and helmet struts over to us, and by strut I mean STRUT, this dude looked like he was a rooster looking to plant his seed. He looks at me working on the bike and says huh! And then walks off. No problem to me at this point, mind your own fucking business has always been my motto.

Dude goes into the store and comes directly back out. I notice that he hasn't bought anything and he wasn't even in there long enough to look. He puts his shit back on, walks back over to us and says what's wrong you lose a taillight on your Yamaha? He has this shit ass smirk on his face, that's even evident from behind his full-face helmet. I tell him yeah, my ground wire broke. He smirks, laughs and says well, that sucks this time of night, gets on his bike, revs it up and peels out right next to my wife who is standing beside my bike. Remember how close this fucker parked? My wife looks at me and says what a douche bag. That felt good to me because I knew her and me were on the same page, only I wanted to rip his ass off of that bike and stomp the shit out of him.

This dude pulled into this parking lot because he saw another biker working on his bike. Iím pretty sure thatís the only reason he pulled in. He may have pulled in to offer help until he realized that the bike I was on was a "jap" bike. (No I donít like to go on long rides 2 up with my wife on my rigid chop, so I chose to take the Yamaha, which is a great bike and has been my daily rider for the last 3 years.)

I've been in the "blue collar" field of work long enough that when I saw this guy pull up I knew what he was about. Just another white-collar punk ass poser with enough dough to buy a nice bike. :mad:What probably really shocked him was to see someone doing work on a bike themselves.:eek:

I get the wire fixed, throw in a new bulb even thought the old one was still good and me and my honey are off to enjoy the rest of our night together.

Although the rest of the night was great and I got to spend some much needed time with my wife, I still can't seem to get the image of this fucker smirking at us out of my mind. I mean who the hell listens to the radio on a bike, much less with a full-face helmet? Thatís funny to me, but the funniest thing is that any real biker would be able to tell that the Yamaha aint no Harley from a mile away. This cat had to get within 2 foot to do so!:LOL: Wow what a douche bag!

Just be glad that you're you - and not him

Be glad you didn't snatch him off that bike. I bet he's been taking karate lessons. LOL :LOL:

Seriously, it's a damn shame.
I've mentioned here before my neighbor owns a Honda. Not even sure what it is, but its a bagger, and it looks good.
He's a fireman, and his Harley firemen buds won't ride with him.

What is it about new shiny leathers and the HD logo turning someone into an instant prick? :HMMM:

i think its always good to pull over and offer help, no matter what kind of bike your on. been in your shoes before

Don't give it another thought...that was not a rant. It was a nice pre-season warning for the rest of us to be on the lookout.

Go to Laconia, Myrtle Beach or Daytona. You'll see a shitload of those asswipes.

my neighbor 3 doors down bought a Harley last summer. In my typical fashion (and his apparently too), we have never spoken. A nod here and there but thats about it. I'm out riding my scoot up to the corner video store and I see him with his daughter on the back in the parking lot. I give him a wave as we pass at in the parking lot and I get...nothing. That "I'm a badass toughguy look" was plastered all over his face as he is all hunched over trying to look as hard as possible. His daughter gave me a wave (she is friends with my older girls) but this dick thinks his shit don't stink because I'm riding a Honda. Oh well. Shit just makes me laugh.

I have owned them all. (Honda, Harley and Big Dog) No i get harassed by my neighbors because i dont have my shovelhead running and need to be riding. This comes from abunch of guys that ride on pretty days and thing a Harley is the only motorcycle. Piss on them Shovelhead all the way. Man, if i see you on the road broke down i will help.
