For years, Harley frames had no VIN numbers. They were titled by engine number.

You are right, I have no way of knowing if she was Extremely Militant. But her attitude and manner of dress, men's pants
wallet, hair style,the way she held her self and mannerism led me to conclude lesbian! After someone is that anti social in a atmosphere that breeds and is intended for camaraderie and the fellowship of the motorcycle aficionado in us all. I took notice and would not have gave it a second thought had she not been there a second time in the afternoon and just as un social. I could understand her being snotty, she was on a BMW and not at Starbucks, but the overtly rude behavior made her standout.

This is true!! But she was not a lipstick lesbian that we all dream about! She would be a second choice at 2 am. Had a beak that would make the wicked witch of the north look twice.

Doesn't this sub-topic belong in the stereotypes thread?
Now you are making inappropriate assumptions, my intention in my comment was to apply some sort of logical reason for such a horrendous attitude to such simple pleasantries as "Good Morning" and "Nice Bike". Try not to be an ass!

Looks like they are in control, but without seeing more of the road and the corner they are on it is hard to tell how it worked out.

Don't need no stinkin' flame paint job on that machine! I vote for fun as usual; the rider looks like he knows what he's doing and the pillion is having a blast, just another hardware scraping joy ride on Flame Wing! WOOOOT!!!!

I used to scrape the peg feelers and toes of my boots all the time on my BMW RT, and it was actually a fairly competent sport bike for being so big. That Wing just has too much iron too close to the road to be comfy for me riding like that, but this couple appears to be used to it and find it fun.

Excellent photo! Ride, ride, ride!

Well, it wasn't a deer, it was a bull elk in rut. He was behind and pissed at the world - me specifically included - and charging hard. And his harem was in front all over the road. The only thing I could think of was nail it and hope I didn't hit one of the cows.... Got real lucky. Missed a couple by a couple of feet but got through OK. So I can accurately report that a DR650 will out accelerate a bull elk....

Loud pipes and reflected sound waves from them do affect horses.
I was riding through the pastoral splendor of Central Kentucky , just outside of Lexington, "Horse Capitol of the World"tm. on the way to the WaterFront for a regular Thursday Night Ride following Duddles on his piped SV650.
As we neared a plank fenced farm I could see a yearling hauling ass toward a corner of it's paddock about 6 ft. from the road. I was going 55-60 and right as I got to the corner I could see the horse hard on it's anchors, front legs locked and hoofs digging in. Then he changed tactics and tried to jump the fence.
Just after thinking "This is going to hurt." I passed the spot and the horse went out of my pherifrial [sp] vision.And for a split second I thought "Lucky again'. And the a shock went through my hand as the top fence board jammed my wrist,banged a couple of fingers and severed my pinky at the first joint.
I maintained control and didn't wreck my bike, but blood was running out of my glove like water through a straw.
Always be alert.

Nope, I'm pretty sure they are the same person... If you don't believe me, then check out one of their many internet slap fights.

My guess is that she was just tired of every 70 year old horn dog within a 10 mile radius wanting to chat her up about her bike......or because she dumped it on the dragon???

Looks like her name is Laurie.....she tagged herself in this one.
