Smile An observation

I'm up at Americade in Lake George. While here, you get to see many riders and a large variety of bikes.

What I've noticed here is that almost every rider of H-D brand motorcycles have a r grimace on their face when they ride. I've also noticed that Goldwing riders and BMW riders, for the most part, smile when riding.

Re: An observation

Re: An observation

They are in that "Waiting for the next thing to fall off mode" and hoping what ever it is doesn't put them in the ditch.

And before everyone jumps on me, I just making fun. I'd like to have a Harley, but I'm too bald to make a pony tail and I hate pain just too much for the tattoos.

Re: An observation

I've noticed the scowl too. I think John got it right, but they look that way most of the time. A man in my office claims to have bought a H-D. No one that I know of has seen it, but he has added a shiny, chrome bar and shield emblem to his Nissan Quest. And he has a scowl. Even when he smiles. Weird, huh?


I could tell he was a biker, it said live to ride on his minivan!

Re: An observation

I had a HD many moons ago. My daughter, then 10years old, got really pissed at me cause i stole the streamers off her bike to put on the HD. Oh, and I have found out that I am allergic to chrome-causes hives.

Re: An observation

What's the difference between a Harley and a Hoover ?.................... Only the position of the dirt bag Talking over a few beers 1 night when a mate asked "how much oil does a HD engine hold ?" Answer - none. Each to their own, seriously.
