Figured with all the harley bashing that occasionally goes on here I'll contribute something good. I met up with another guy that rides and we stopped in at a 7-11 to get something to drink. While we were sitting around talking to some guys that pulled up in their car, a guy rolled in on a harley with his wife on back and parked next to us. Yea like a typical owner he said, "you guys need a real bike," with a smile on his face. Gets off and asks us a whole bunch of questions about our bikes and my friend's dad's harley. We wind up talking about riding for a few min and the fun times we've had on bikes. His not so bad lookin wife sat on my bike and didn't like the ergonomics too much but thought it was cool no the less! I offered a ride but she said she couldn't ride in or on anything other than american, oh well. But yes, there are cool harley guys out there. Guys who really don't care what bike you ride, as long as you care about riding.
