Default Man..we really do get snubbed ...

Got bored sittin' round the house...headed out for a 4-5 day weekend ride. Ohio , Ind, S/W Michigan....went to the Studebaker museum in South Bend,Ind....I recommend it !

Got snubbed by two HD's & a BMW....one HD on the road, one in a restaurant parking lot !! And a BMW in a motel lobby !...he watched me park & get off the motorcycle , looked right at me , I nodded ..he ignored............I don't get it ????

Funny thing is ....I have two BMW's at home in garage....

I wasn't even ON my bike and I got snubbed by a BMW rider. You see he was standing next to a 2011 Ness Vision. I said "nice bike". To which he replied "thanks". He then threw a cover over some type of BMW that was on the other side of him and I said... "Oh, I thought yours was the Vision" and ... that's when the fight started...

Why even let it bother you? There are jerks everywhere. Ever think that maybe they are jealous? Me, I have bigger fish to fry. Fuggedaboutit.

I get snubbed by BMW guys when Im riding my BMW......and almost taken out by drunk Harley riders on poker runs.....they usually dont have licenses.

......dont even get my started on those American hating rice riders.....come on who doesnt love 'Merica.

What I learned along time ago.....I ride my bike for me.

Screw everyone else.

I wave....they dont.

They do....I dont.

LOL it all averages out, man. Been snubbed, ignored etc. It seemed like a LOT at first- but I was actively looking for the reactions. Still happens some. I also have been chased down in traffic many times by imports and Harley's alike just so they could get a closer look.

Like it or not- our memories tend to be selective. Now I take the "snub" attitude as a badge of honor.

oh and yes I have definitely seen the "snubber's" girlfriend unable to take her eyes off the bike (I assume )while the idiot on the front did his best to pretend I wasn't there.. That's the best.

The awkward moments come with rider events that involve HD dealerships. I tend to avoid if I'm solo, but have been on a couple with my Rider Club. Once I drew a crowd. Amazingly- lots of wow, lots of what size is the engine, and surprisingly few broken record cliche's in the form of questions they did NOT really want answered. This last one- no one got within 20 feet of it, lol.. not a word. (Bayside HD in Portsmouth) I think they literally were afraid it would bite.
