Ive owned numerous bikes from street to enduro to motocross, and its really funny how when you own one certain make or model how someone else will down your bike. I recently sold my Harley, because I missed the performance of a sportbike. And when I rode with Harley riders, most of them downed sportbike riders, and some would not give the "brotherhood of riders" wave as they passed a sportbike. And now, alot of Harley riders dont give me the sign when I pass by. I give it to all, regardless. Also now that I ride a Sportbike again, I get some feedback from fellow Harley riders asking why would I get rid of my Harley for a sportbike. First and foremost I say, "Performance", all around the board, and secondly I have to ask them if they have ever ridden one, the majority says they have not. Its just odd to me, as long as Ive ridden, I havent scorned anyone for what they ride. Its all a matter of choice...to each his own. I cant say that I wont own another Harley down the line, but for now this bike is everything I wanted in a bike. To me its all about enjoying your ride, whatever It may be. Just my two pennys, maybe my dime.
