Be Proud Man, swagger like a big bagger, we Sporty people do dumb things and are like those big Aussie cane toads, purposeful.
I've found bagger owners to be quite friendly here. I have had people walk up to show me pics of their big twins too, and some talk about sporties. I nod at them and they nod back. The most popular Harleys here are the V-Rods and Sportsters.
That said, I can't seem to get my head around some of the baggers. If you really need all that comfort and radios, cupholders, etc, etc, surely that's basically a car? Each to their own I guess.

Now as for doing dumb things:
"Silly is you in a natural state, and serious is something you have to do until you can get silly again." - Mike Myers.
Now we have all that out of the way, I am interested in your cane toad recycling proposal.

Cheers. Hopefully I can enjoy it longer once I get some suspension fitted.
