I'll preface with not ALL Harley riders, just the weekend warrior, beenie sporting idiots with more chrome than riding ability.
After Chia's ride today, I went to meet someone in White Rock, at Starbucks in South Point. As I'm waiting for my buddy, I'm sitting on my bike, having a smoke. I'm parked beside some "custom chopper" thing, and there are 2 more of them across the lot from me. I see 3 very typical looking "Harley Poser" kinda dudes inside Starbucks.
Half way through my smoke, they come out to go home. All 3 of them looked at me, sitting on my bike, but didn't even nod or smile. WAY too cool to talk to a "crotch rocketer"! So as the pass my bike, now standing behind it, I overhear one of them say "Look at the little pea shoot pipe on that thing", followed by his buddy's comment about the "rusty pipe". Third jackass says "Fucking Japscrap". Now, bear in mind they were TRYING to talk quietly, but I guess all that riding of their overly noisy turds has left them with poor hearing, and loud voices.
Anyway, I turn to them, and say, "So how many km on your bikes?" One guy says "enough", the other guy looks stunned, and says nothing, and the third turd says "Mine has no odometer". My reply? "Mine just rolled over 47000km. 2 of them go silent, and the third says "No way a Jap bike can do THAT many km.". At that point I shook my head, laughed and walked into Starbucks. Fuckin idiots. As I'm standing in line I see them looking at my odo.
Couple seconds later, and they're off, making babies cry, and looking VERY much like complete and total fucknut Dbags.
Oh well, not really a rant, just thought it was surprising to see their "breed" out this early in the season.
