Only when I have the HD 1/4 fairing on.
Guess it's because It "looks like one of the Sons of Anarchy bikes."

Well last day I as thinking about the fact that nobody in the street asked me anything when I drive my 1964 black and white Panhead, time to time one say something when I drive my 1960 Hi-Fi Blue/white XLCH (most of time when I kick.
I used to be much more "admired" when I used to drive a standard red/gray 2008 Bonneville.

At same time poeple who works at the same place often tell me (only) about the Pan, even if I use it twice a month at work.
In fact the Pan and XLCH turn heads in silence (fear ?); driving a Bonneville make you more friendly.

I'm surpised how many poeple aged 40-60 years dream to get a Bonny but are afraid to drive motorcycle.
