i dont think you can generalize and say all harley riders do that. i have been on demo rides with guys who have owned nothing but and been impressed with their skills. i was at a bike rodeo last year had a blast and saw some very good riding skills displayed. one guy in particular on a dresser was an excellent rider especially at slow speeds. i ran demos at the dealership i worked at and i have seen plenty of japanese bike riders who dont know how to ride either. they took courses and passed and imho had no real riding skills at all. showed fear and intimidation and steered through corners like a car. there are alot more poor riders out there than you can imagine and they ride all kinds of bikes so it isnt fair to generalize like that.
it's hard out here for a pimp. i'm just tryin to get the money to pay the rent.
