    Mostly a cruiser/chopper/dirt bike thing. Although we do love to trailer stuff. And most of the crap we trailer can move on its own power. Go figure.

    This is Woof. I'm trying to find a good home for her and she is not only super friendly but quite happy to curl up and go to sleep on my bike seat. (She'll need a lift up there though, still too small to jump that high). When would you guys like to come and pick her up?

    Same here. You cover you plate in public and you get a ticket. You fail to cover it on the internet and people have a cow...

    Beside, they guy drives a Honda Element. I thought you had to have a vagina to drive one of those...

    Aside from all that, the guy had a trailer and motorcycle already in a parking spot. Putting a bike there might of blocked his vehicle door access. I don't know. But, minor prick violation in my opinion. Frankly, if the guy didn't want anyone parking there, he should of positioned his bike differently.

    Isn't it customary for motorcycles to share parking spots. Look at it from this angle: If you pull up to a parking lot in a car and see only one motorcycle per spot, wouldn't you wonder why the motorcycles where not sharing spots???

    Am I wrong in suggesting that motorcycles should park two to a spot by default???

    I love these threads!
    :clap

    Trailer boy is leaving his new polished GS overnight... uncovered/unchained... on the centerstand?... at a Motel 6?
    OP tore up the road to cover 330 miles in 3.5 hours... to get to a Motel 6?
    The soap and the towels are the same size... at least the lights are on... Thanks Tom!

    A comment from another member who had an informal ADV event in KS.


    "That guy" is everywhere, with every brand of bike, but I will concede more likely with the expensive ones.
    Besides, the OP seems like a great guy and he rides a GS. He could have parked in my space anytime.

    It probably took all the energy the fat guy had to get the GS pig outta the trailer and parked there. He was just standing there trying to get his wind back! :evil

    Having pretended to be a BMW master tech for three years, I've seen my share of posers on the shiny unridden GS's. No different than the HD's or.......

    Don't you dare park your shiny chrome bike next to my GS! Some of my dirt might fall off and ruin your saturday's efforts. I don't like watching grown men whine and sniffle.

    Harley and BMW riders are fake. KTM riders are searching for a solution to their weaknesses. KLR riders are there...

    He's an asshole but your a pussy.

    If you've got a problem with him say it to his face instead of posting a whinny ass post on the net about it.

    Says the man who calls someone else a "tough guy on the internet" on the internet.

    Oh man, I shoulda watched the paint dry instead of reviving this thread. I didn't think the OP was being sarcastic on the title (in my defense). Thought he had met me :D. Truth is, there's an a-hole riding every type of bike out there, in every type of car and even sitting in the church of whatever denomination you care for. That's life, get over it. Maybe if the offending GS'r was able to get a word in he might say something like "Ever since the accident...." or "I'm just trying to escape the nightmare that is my life for a few days". Or maybe he's just an a-hole. Whatever.



    As for me, I'll keep faking it. I just figured KLR'rs were green with envy. :evil

    What a tool that GS rider is. In London, if you park your bike inconsiderately, it's not totally unheard of to find someone has helpfully moved your bike into a position that will allow other bikes to park alongside yours.
