That's not why I ride... that's why I stop. Different altogether, innit?

He is actually employed as a mechanic."

B Curvin?
Was that mechanic in Arizona and riding a Vulcan 750?

I'm confused, your sig line says different.

Carried a step further, people who "ride" so they can meet people, should just buy the fucking T-Shirt and then drive there.

If I may, He's talking about Travel, which may or may not involve riding a motorcycle. That's my take, not knowing the douchbag myself.

And DWoodward, that was the best freaking response I believe I've ever read. I'm off to buy a TShirt and use it to clean off my bike.

Pretty much.

Put another way- I don't want to meet people who want to meet me because of what I ride, or that I ride. When I do want to meet people, I very rarely want to talk about motorcycles.

While there is a Honda in my garage- a) it's not mine, and b) It's broken. .

At some point you'd have to just be rude and pointedly ask the instructor to see his qualifications. I mean come on.

Advice like this clown is giving out could cost a guy several grand, easy.

What is Harley doing?

Following a catastrophic slide that saw a 50 percent decline in yearly sales following the global recession, Harley-Davidson is looking stronger than ever on the eve of their first quarter earnings statement, which will be released this Thursday. Analysts are predicting a 96 cent per share profit, with most of those experts classifying HOG stock as a "buy" or a "strong buy," despite decreasing net income over the last two quarters due to tough winter and a late advent of spring riding weather.
