You Meet the Nicest People on a GS!

I think it's stupid to occupy a car parking place with a bike....

Nothing to do with the type of jerks on the GS, simply some 'bon sens commun' (common sens).

But hey, I do agree with you, "over-weight jerks" ride "over-weight bikes" and often have "over-weight spirit" :lol3:lol3:lol3:lol3:lol3:lol3

What an Ass! I do not wish him harm, but may a big freaking bird shit on his bike while it is parked under that tree!

when I park in a space like that I expect another bike to be able to fit in it, and park my bike in such a way. Assholes seem to be everywhere and are unavoidable even in our world.

I'm both overweight and middle-aged, but I'd share my parking space. :D

I think you just happened across a jerk and he would have still been a jerk regardless of what bike he was riding.

That is strange. Expecialy the way he parked looks to me like he was inviting another biker to park there.

Hey me too! In fact, I like another bike next to me. Makes it harder to mess with and mine are usually the dirtiest bikes around so the clean ones make better targets :)

This! One jerk does not define a group of riders. In my experience, most riders, BMW or not, would have let you join them.

PS No offense, but making out like we all suck because of one ass doesn't make you look all that good either.:deal

PPS He did have a trailer parked there. Maybe he was concerned he would be blocked in when he was ready to leave. :dunno

Wow, if someone leaves that much room I usually don't even ask, just pull up, plonk down the kickstand, nod, and walk away.

TomDac 06-18-2012 12:27 PM

a super clean GS? I've only seen those at the dealership.

:D

Snarky 06-18-2012 12:39 PM

I would've let you park next to me. lol

No offense taken. I was certainly painting with broad brush strokes, and I would doubt anyone would take my comments too seriously. Obviously if Beemer riders were all really that bad I would not be an MOA member, would not go to rallies, and would ride something else.

Great DVDs and technical info by the way. The willingness of Beemer wrenches to share the knowledge is one reason I have stayed with the brand.

Why can't we all park together and have a good time. :rofl

Lots of people out there that "rides" bikes that haven't understood the proper motorcycling mentality of sharing and caring. Some of them rides BMW, or maybe not so much rides as owns one.

Try to view them like little boys with their most special priced possession that they don't want to share or even let anyone else touch, preferably not even come close and guards jealously ;) Its all about ownership for those guys.

mb90535im 06-18-2012 01:23 PM

Well now when you mention sharing, asking to ride my bike might get a " Hell no" reply. I've got a couple of riding buddies that I wouldn't mind letting ride my beloved "Scarlett", but those are few and far between. :evil
