I think attitudes are slowly starting to change. Has a guy working on my heat pump who is one of the few "serious" HD riders who puts 20k+ a year on his bike. He spent more time checking out my XR than fixing anything and talked about finding a good used Kingpin as a second bike. Most of the haters are usually the ones who are lower on the IQ scale I have come to find out over the years (not saying I am too high on it either!)
