I don't know if this has been posted before, but wanted to share.

No idea who the author is...

--- I LOVE MOTORCYCLES ---

I love motorcycles, and I love riding. Like many of you, what first drew me to bikes was not just the experience of riding, but the feeling that I'd become part of a special community-- a brotherhood, really. Nothing calms me more than a long ride down the interstate, waving to the members of my beloved clan. Except when I pass Harley guys. I hate Harley guys. Hate, hate, hate. When they pass me on the highway, you know what I do? I don't wave. With their little tassel handlebars and the studded luggage and the half-helmets -- God, they drive me crazy.

You know who else I hate? BMW guys. Oh, I do hate those guys. I don't wave at them, either. They think they're so great, sitting all upright, with their 180-degree German engines. God, I hate them. They're almost as bad as those old bastards on their touring motorcycles are. You know what I call those bikes? "Two-wheeled couches!" Get it? Because they're so big. They drive around like they've got all day. Appreciate the scenery somewhere else, Grampa, and while you're at it, I'm not waving to you.

Ducati guys-- I don't wave at them either. Why don't they spend a little more money on their bikes? "You can have it in any color you want, as long as it's red." Aren't you cool! Like they even know what a desmo- whatever engine is, anyway. Try finding the battery, you Italian-wannabe racers! I never, ever wave at those guys.

Suzuki guys aren't much better, which is why I never wave at them, either. They always have those stupid helmets sitting on top of their stupid heads, and God forbid they should wear any safety gear. They make me so mad. Sometimes they'll speed by and look over at me and you know what I do? I don't wave. I just keep on going. Please, don't get me started on Kawasaki guys. Ninjas? What are you, twelve years old? Team Green my ass. I never wave at Kawasaki guys.

I ride a Victory, and I'll only wave at Victory guys, but even then, I'll never wave at a guy in full leathers. Never, never, never. Yeah, like you're going to get your knee down on the New York Thruway. Nice crotch, by the way. Guys in full leathers will never get a wave from me, and by the way, neither will the guys in two-piece leathers. And I'll tell you who else I'm not waving at -- those guys with the helmets with the loud paintjobs. Four pounds of paint on a two-pound helmet - like I'm going to wave back to that! I'll also never wave at someone with a mirrored visor. Or helmet stickers. Or racing gloves. Or hiking boots.

To me, motorcycling is a like a family, a close-knit brotherhood of people who ride Victory’s, wear jeans and a leather jacket (not Vanson) with regular gloves and a solid-color helmet with a clear visor, no stickers, no racing gloves and regular boots (not Timberlands). And isn't that what really makes riding so special?

This post is meant as humour but it is also true.


For me,the funniest part of this story is at the end where he mentions Timberland boots. I wear Timberlands because I have very difficult feet to fit properly, size 11, narrow and flat. I tried every boot available at any cost and Timberlands are the most comfortable boot I ever had on my feet. I have enough self esteem to wear Timberlands and I also wave at anyone who is willing to accept my wave.

The part about ducati riders who can't find the battery...

I had the plastic off my ducati in a parking lot of a Yamaha dealership in a small town in BC last Saturday to replace the battery which decided to go kaput so that I could not get it started at gas stops. People kept coming by saying "Do you have to take the whole motorcycle apart to replace that?"

I also got the "Is the clutch supposed to make that noise?" at two gas stops.

Victory and Ducati are completely different bikes, I like 'em both. On a nice day I lke to kick back on the Victory on the highway, but boy when its early spring and I'm riding through the mountains in driving rain or snow, only the ST4 will do.

I was a big fan of the ST line myself. I owned two of them:

After riding them for about 8 years I developed a bad case of Golfer's elbow. I lost the second one in a fire at the dealership shop. After not riding it for about 6 months my arms were normal again. I had no idea the bike was causing it.

Hmmm. I was just about to put my chaps on before going for a ride, with the rain outlook being iffy. What was I thinking?

Good comedy usually has a certain amount of truth and this is one of those times.

You didn't take that seriously, did you? If you did, that proves the point that our humor is based primarily on two things; truisms and misfortunes. :ltr:
