Default Tired of hearing the Sportster is a girls bike (The one and only Girly Bike Thread)

I am getting very tired of hearing that the sportster is a girls bike. I was just thumbing through an edition of HOG Enthusiast and there is nothing but pics of women on sporties and articles about the women who are riding them. My 04 1200r is quick and handles like a dream and blows away my buddies fatboy with cams,carb and exhaust work. Under no circumstance's do I feel a 1200CC bike is a "girls" bike. After I put on a set of V&h straitshots and a jet kit it sounds freakin mint too! The other day I over heard my own brother in law talkin shit about MY sporty in MY garage "" I cant ride no girls bike" is what he said. Well I let this SOB keep his rice burner in my garage so it wouldnt get damaged outside this winter.....after I heard that I got a good mind to tell him get your plastic, rice burning shitbox out of my garage!
Anyways...that enough, sorry for the rant but I had to get that off my chest.
Just wondering if others experienced this comment?

I won a HD T-bag at the HOG christmas party a week or so ago. A few people I knew sitting around the table I was sitting at said all I needed now was a bike big enough for it. I said "I'll race you for it, if you beat me you can have it." Funny, no one took me up on the offer

Tell him only patriots can leave their bikes in your garage! Those who buy Jap don't qualify.
