WELL, EXCUSE THE HELL OUT OF ME!! Both of our bikes are brand new. I didn't feel the need to carry any duct tape. I don't have any wrenches with me either. Furthermore, I am absolutely not a pirate! Just an average lady riding a Harley. I could have had any bike I wanted, but that is what I chose. TO EACH THEIR OWN, RIGHT!! POINT BEING DON'T JUDGE!!! I do not look down on anyone who rides, and I like ALL bikes! I will talk to anyone I run across, doesn't matter what you ride! NOT EVERY HARLEY RIDER IS A PIRATE, JUST SO YOU KNOW!
