Harley riders can't wave, it voids their warranty.

My son and I were out yesterday and today on ours, and with the classic exhaust we both have, no Harley is gonna drown out the Bullets! Especially when we take off side by side  and wind them up going through the gears...  ;D

Funny that guys who seem to wave the most are the guys who spent the least on their bikes.

Sometimes I feel sorry for Harley Riders.. With so many Harley lookalikes they sometimes catch themselves waving at a KawaYamaHondaHarleys... ;D

  But they still wave back more than MOST Beemer riders.  But the friedliest riders are Goldwingers.  Heck they even wave at motor scooter/mopeders.

Are you saying you don't wave at the Mods?

  Vespa's and Cushmans..sure.  Sachs and Pugs probably.  Cool peds are okay (all metal).    :D :D :D

Oh yes, Spring is in the air, and the Harleys are disturbing the peace.  If you ever want to get into an argument with the Harley boys just point out the fact that when two of them are stopped idling at a light that together they both sound like an old air cooled Volkswagen.

Still a bit cold and damp here. We have had the wettest winter that I can remember.  I do have it on good authority that the sun will shine again. (soon I hope.)

Usually the ones on the crotch rockets never wave at me.  One time a girl on a little Ninja rode past me and then slowed down to wave furiously at me though.  ;D  but then another time I pulled up next to a girl in a miniskirt on her pink plastic scooter.  She wouldn't even LOOK at me as I revved my engine at her.  :P  The nerve.

That reminds me of a look a Harley guy gave me as I was riding home after attending a friends wedding .
 I was impeccably dressed , no helmet ( yeah , a no no), air force aviator shades, yeah, my best Steve McQueen( or Sean Connery) riding my a beautifully polished BR Green RE.....it was priceless to see his expression.

Gold-Wangers only think they have the "best".  But I suppose that one gets what one overpays for.
