I will admit that I've come across a few BMW riders that are standoffish, some that even think their poop don't stink, but I've also met/rode with a ton of them that are great guys that would give you the shirt off their back. Now KTM riders OTH, they're all a bunch of pricks!

Scribe: Welcome to Arkansas, there is plenty of roads and trails in the Ozarks to keep you busy exploring for a while.

I don't BMW riders snobs so much as the Wanna-Be Pirates, pull up to station with a group of them around covered in mud from the knees down and actually wearing a Helmet and they all wear is a dew rag, and you might as well be invisible. If its not covered in Chrome....

Meh, I've not seen that out of Harley riders. I dont typically fit into that crowd either, but everyone I meet is friendly.

It's called a lot of practice if you are not born/raised with the abilty to be SMOOTH.

I once heard of someone getting 36,000 miles out of a chain and sprocket set on a sport bike. I know I never could because I tend towards rapid change in speed both increaseing and decreaseing. But smooth more consistent speed changes will get to a lot more tire, chain and sprocket life.

So if you want to be good to the resources practice a lot of smooth steady transitions. If not just say heck with it and spend a little more time changing tires, chains, and sprockets.

Sort of like trigger squeeze versious rapid pulls. Some get more out nof using little to preciously place one shoot, some like to just pull and count on one of several bullets getting close to the right area. Good to praactice some of both if you have the time and resources.

Maybe we should start a pool. All chip in a kitty. Place the same rear tire on bikes and record od. Person with the most miles out of the rear tire wins the pool just for fun and practice.

Maybe because you initiate a hello or conversation. Others like freindly people who initiate a hello. The same people could see me as stuck up because I am a bit quite at first. Then someone like Ted says hi and regrets it because I won't shut up.

For Ted, it's all in the "approach"...
