    Indian chieftain - Harley Ultra
    So I pull in too Target to grab some cash from the cash machine. I’m on my indian. I back into a spot and directly across from me is a white Streetglide you know the everyday Harley everyone’s rolling now. As I’m taking off my gloves the owner & his wife girlfriend whatever come walking up to it 35 yrs old at best. So I look their way to nod an acknowledgment of like hey what’s up. He totally ignores me won’t even look in my direction LOL I think ok that’s fine. I go in grab some cash come back out and their still getting ready. slip their Harley vests over their jackets gloves so on. I purposely walk right into their parking space past them looking at them to possibly give the acknowledgment of hey we both ride what’s up LOL nothing wouldn’t even look at me. So me being me stopped and said HEY WOULD YOU ACKNOWLEDGE ME IF I WAS ON MY HARLEY ? I shook my head got on my bike thinking Jesus I’ve been doing this $hit longer then you’ve been around boy. I wanted to slap him and say your the reason people look at Harley riders like they do ! Your really not all that cool believe me !

    Probably his first bike.

    Duck walks at stop signs.

    Can't make a u turn using only two lanes.

    Couldn't tell you where the drain plug was if his life depended on it.

    I hear ya. Its why I'm here.....couldn't for the life of me spend $10k on a 1999 Fatboy with marginal performance and 30k miles on the clock. My friends have Harleys, but I chose not to. We still all ride together, and don't discriminate unless it's a Spyder or worse yet, a Slingshot. We're all on two wheels struggling against the 'cagers', so its a kinship, and you wave or nod. Different times....

    Sometime feel like I should be yelling at the kids to "Stay off my lawn". I suspect that's whats next, now that I yell at the TV.

    I feel you Mike. Anymore I don’t even acknowledge. I wait for them to acknowledge first. Especially the younger look at me crowd. Don’t care what they ride. If they do then I’m friendly. If not then I didn’t waste a fukin moment worrying about it.

    I just moved back to pinellas county, Madeira beach. This is how all Harley riders are here. Its so funny!!! when they see me coming, their heads snap to the left or right so fast and they refuse to look at me!!! They will ride with their heads sideways down the road if they are next to me. Pathetic babies they are. I just laugh as i pull away. I will say, its not just Harleys doing it. I got snubbed by a Can Am the other day as well! A feckin Can Am!!!

    Speaking of the cool factor. I remember taking part in a charity ride a few years back. I was actually on my Dad's Victory XC, because I was home visiting in my cage for whatever reason. I'm always looked down upon by "Harley Weekend Warriors" while on the Vic. Anyhow as we are all waiting to take off on the group ride one of these HWWs nearly drops his low mileage pretty street glide while trying to get it off the kickstand. The woman he had on the back ended up keeping his bike from falling. Me and two old timers that I had just meet that day busted out laughing and avoid that motorcycle for the rest of the day (I think he actually did drop it another stop). The old timers didn't care what brand of motorcycle I had; hell one of them said he is tempted to steal the Vic. These HWWs are a walking a joke; from how they dress to how they talk.

    Well I guess we can all say we have seen non riders on just about all brands but nothing like we see on HD. No wonder the HD die hards have such attitudes. It’s like the posers are invading their life style. Hell I’ve seen HD riders treat posers with dis respect because they felt they should be on Honda’s. Well everyone wants a HD man ….. c’mon now gitch ya one.

    Hmm, really have seen that and I know I told this story before, but it was a good one. Back when I used to go Starbucks, I met up with another Vic rider (former HD rider too).

    While enjoying our coffees a HD Rider parks next to the Vics and the Bike was a beauty, being a custom to boot. A Gentleman and his Lady walk up and complimented the Victory’s while starting in the door. The HD Rider now sitting with us, pipes up “What about my Bike?”

    Without missing a beat the Gentleman responded, “Harleys are ****, I have owned two and both were POS…”.

    I damn near blew my coffee out my nose. I smiled at the HD Rider and “Well, you asked for it..”

    Ahhh, no thank you. I'd not fit in well with the bar&shield lifestyle crowd.
    I much prefer to ride than stand around at a bar and talk about riding
