Over here in the UK I see more women on Big Twins than Sportsters probably because of the lower seat height. Went to an open night at a WMC & a member was showing me her new Triumph Rocket 3, didn't hear any girl's bike remarks. It's got an engine nearly the size of the Ford Zephyr 6 I used to have in the 80s, a large car (by UK size, around the size of a Falcon or Valiant in US size).
My hairdresser drives an MX5, she also has an MG Midget for her summer classic car.

I encountered the girls bike thing more when I owned my Deluxe, but it was always subtle. Something like, " how do you like your Deluxe? My wife really wants one." The obvious response would be, " say hi to her for me." But of course, then someone would be going to jail. Not at all a smart move......

I’ve had people say “is that your skirtster”

My reply is “why, do you want to look up my skirt”.

My usual response is, "You do know that the Sportster has been around since 1957. How long has your Big Twin been around? By the way, the Sportster saved Harley-Davidson from bankruptcy when the British bikes invaded."

Why does anyone care what someone says, who is clearly a person with low self esteem, and suffers with feelings of inadequacy?
