Ran into a guy the other day while I was on a job. He heard a Harley riding by. He went and looked at it as it went by us. His next comment was it was a ---- Harley wanna-be. Then he proceeded to tell me he had a Road King. Usely I'll say nice bike,etc. This time I did not I just nodded,I was busy working. I then proceeded to say I went and rode a Victory and said I was impressed,smoothest bike I ever road. He did not comment further. So what do I do? I proceeded to tell him my wife likes the Victorys also,but she does not like my Triumph. He walked away,did not say a thing. I laughed inside to myself. I have already put up with people not liking my bike because it's a Triumph and not a Harley. It does not bother me,I actually think it is kind of comical. I personally do not want the same bike everybody else has.One day I hope to have a Victory in my shed with my other bikes.
