Get with it! Everybody knows Austria is somewhere down there in the Pacific Ocean. Come on now!
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!
I hate it when I'm filling up my bike - riding jacket and helmet on. My back's to the person who says, "Nice bike!" I reply, "Thanks" and then they say something stupid like - "Hey - you're a chick!" Like I didn't already know this?
I wouldnt survive in your country. where ever that is im naked without my Glock 22 to not only defend my family but myself.
how many times have you had to do this?
I'd also like to hear how many times.
Or perhaps you were just trying to make the poster feel as though living in a society where the need to carry a weapon is somehow less desirable?
I don't think it's because you ride a harley... duct tape i a handy thing to have no matter where your adventures take you, I carry some when backpacking you never know when you might need some.
a partial roll of duct tape has save me from a tow bill on several occasions. it is just one of the things that come in handy....sometimes to block a broken helmet vent or roadside boot repair.
I have no issue with whatever bike you ride, but for the love of god, stop with the pink bold comic font.
I do not think you will EVER convince this group of that. I have never seen a more brand bashing bunch of people then I have seen on here.
And I think the pink font sets you off as different. Keep it!
Thank you folks for the information on duct tape. I really did not think of it that way.
You mean Australia right? When people ask me where my KTM comes from and I tell them Austria, they say oh nice, G'day and any other line they can think of from a Crocodile Dundee movie. Then I just give up and move along.
There is more than one HD dealership in AK so I think HI is the only state that meets the "only dealership in 2,500 miles" requirement.
There was a dealership on the Kenai Peninsula not from from where I lived and I'd bet money there is one in Anchorage.
Edit: one in Anchorage and one in Soldotna... Only 150 miles between. Hawaii gets the fewest pirates per square mile award :-0
Just kidding. I don't think you (pink lady) are a pirate. But you should be, imagine how cool it'd be to speak pirate and drink rum.
Duct tape is good on long trips when you run out of Pepto-Bismol.
I used to have pretty long hair, and ran into several guys who started conversations with me about my bike while I was getting gas only to immediately lose interest and quickly dart back into their cars once I turned to face them and opened my visor (I'm guessing they were surprised by the mustache).
Apparently you missed the "years ago" part of the original comment. All four of the main islands have Harley dealers now.
I've heard that one too. Australia? Cool
How did you get it all the way to the US?
Or KTM? That's made by Kawasaki isn't it?
But Kawasaki owns them don't they?
Yea, sure. Have a nice day.
It happened today. I was minding my own business at the gas pump when I was assaulted with stupidity.
Young guy, early 20s on a Hayabusa, pulls up next to me while I'm taking the gas cap off the Husky (TR650).
Dude: Hey bro, cool bike.
Dude: That thing is all, you know, like an enduro, but with plates. What is it, a 250?
Me: No, it's a 650. Still a single though.
Dude: Nawwww, you're screwin' with me. They don't make singles over 250.
Me: I suppose you're not a dirt bike guy?
Dude: Naw, bro, I just got the Busa.
Me: Well, the make singles in all sorts of sizes up to 650. Next time you're at the dealership you should check them out.

I didn't miss that, just assumed... You know the rest ;-)
