I get a kick out of these guys with $40k dressers at the tiki bar on Sunday with their wives and Harley everything, belt buckles, bandannas probably underwears too

Like when I was a youngster and someone's mother in the neighborhood would dress us up like pirates

ARGHHHH!!!

were any of the harley dresser riders wearing an easy rider jacket ?

given that there are a zillion on sale on ebay and all over the internet you'd think every m/c rider in the US would have one, I have NEVER seen another person wearing an easy rider jacket, or even a mild facsimile, and I have been riding mc in So Cal for 52 years, how do you explain that ? Maybe I need to spend more time on Mulholland and less time in San Pedro.

Whenever I cross back into AZ over the bridge like Hopper & Fonda did at the beginning of the movie I can't help thinking of them. Always makes me glad to be alive!

I see it regularly, the "Harley guys" on group rides. Rugged individualists that look like a bunch of clones that just got outfitted in a dealerships' boutique.

They're unique... just like everyone else is.

The only thing that's important is that we're on 2 wheels & having fun. Doesn't matter at all what you wear, or ride, or anyone else's opinion of your choices. Ask anyone who's ever seen me on my bike.
