I grew up riding dirt bikes, never considered an HD, always wanted a sport bike. Two knee surgeries later I gave up the dirt, so my exw bought me a 83 GL750. It was a great bike but I felt like I needed a jean jacket and my mullet back to ride it. I rode it for a couple years and then told her I wanted something newer, she was a paramedic so a sport bike was a hard no. I went to look at a sportster R and spotted an 02 Vrod and just had to have it. I rode that bike for 10 years and LOVED it. Once we moved to the great white north I didn't ride as much and I work nights so I see deer several times a week, so it got sold.
The leather, studs and such doesn't bother me, it's what they like, and some were douche bags as with some in the mustang community. But the "gang" I rode with, The Southern Cruisers, they were mostly great people that would go out of their way to help you. That group rode every Tuesday and Saturday, if the weather was bad they would take the "cages" to dinner somewhere. They raised piles of money for St Judes as well.
How about we try to judge a person by their actions instead of their bike and wardrobe?
Never let the truth get in the way of a good story
