Default Let's Band Together

One thing I really hate about owning my 99 Sporty is that I'm being discriminated by other Harley Riders who think that they are better because they ride a bigger bike. Let's band together and kick some tail Who's with me?

It is useally the RUBs.
I just go and sit at the bar and laugh and mock them.
Some of us in AZ want to rent scooters and leather up and hang out at the bars the show off at.
Now that would be fun.

I usually don't catch too much crap about riding a sporty. All the other guys still wave at me and usually don't say anything. The only people that give me crap are my buddies but we do that to each other no matter what.

man i had a guy with a electra glide say he could walk me...i just lied my ass off and told him i had a 1250cc with a cam and would beat the living crap out of his two wheeled car.

since i am 20 and not small by any means i dont get to much crap because i also pull out the age card since im only 20 and have a better (newer) bike than theirs.

and finally since alot of BT riders around me seem to be bald (no offense to any baldys) i just say "well at least i have a full set of hair"
