I have a KLR and a BMW and have actually never been to a Starbuck's. I have multiple-personality disorder, and enjoy sunsets and long walks on the beach with my other persona.

I'm cheap but I have color-matched luggage: mud color.

A little earlier today, as I was waiting for my wife to emerge from a store in our little town, I sat on a bench on Main Street and watched 7, probably otherwise normal to boring, middle-aged men ride into town on the HDs in full pirate costumes. I couldn't help but chuckle as they parked their obnoxiously loud bikes on Main and looked around to see who all was impressed.

Only moments ago, as I picked up my iPad to do a quick email check and happened to find this thread, I was gearing up in full Whale Foreskin Gear to ride my old R100GS just 30 miles north, over one dirt pass, planning to make a stop at the local, not Starbucks, coffee shop. Most of my rides have a coffee shop somewhere in the destination. In fact, I'm not sure it can be called a ride without a good Americano.

So to answer the original question - NO!

Exactly. Generalizations are true because they are public-consciousness defined representation of an observed pattern. Just because there are outliers to each stereotype doesn't invalidate the pattern; it just means the outliers should not be considered for the equation.

Also Starbucks coffee is terrible - they burn it all the time so it tastes bitter and serve black coffee as if it were made to be masked by milk and sugar. But maybe that's just my generalization after having been served bad coffee every time I've gone there

This dude cast the mold for the reflective stereotype. Enter the Mini-Moo Dork Monster KLR Extreme Edition.

That's an airhead. Airhead owners are notoriously frugal and a milk crate, while not quite fitting the mold, is not too far off. They are like KLR owners with more facial hair (grey-beards, literally or figuratively).

Disclosure - I own an airhead with a "real" top box - but in my defence, I bought it at a recycle center for one pound. Also I do not have a beard but most of the other airhead owners I've met do.

You're right. It's not. Their regular coffee is so over roasted that it can only be consumed with added crap.

You should wear a glue on one. Keep the stereotype going.

I only drink black coffee, but thankfully gas station coffee is the only coffee in my budget. I have tried the Starbucks crap and I am with the crowd who theorizes they deliberately over roast less than top notch coffee beans on purpose. This way they can hawk more coffee with a bunch of extra shit in it that masks the coffee flavor at a much higher profit margin. Thanks to that, rather than making a small profit from me on a cup of plain black coffee, they make no profit from me since I go elsewhere.

Wow, I think all that yellow tape/paint is creating the opposite effect than what was desired. To me it looks like it's part of the road. Like a weird parking spot or something.
