Nasty Harley riders!!

Post by mogas64 » Wed Aug 16, 2017 10:33 am

Went for a bimble to Stratford Upon Avon on Sunday, and great gaggles of Harley riders passed me on the way home from the Bulldog Bash , not one of them returned my nods to them!!!, load of antiquated crap anyhow are Harleys , unless you're on a road in New Mexico wearing your leather chaps you look a right Pratt, in rural England .

That's fine. Just don't ever acknowledge cages or power rangers.

Funny that you call out New Mexico of all places. :lol: we do have quite a bit of them here although I usually get a wave back. :P

When you say a group of Harley riders passed you I assume they were travelling in the opposite direction :D

Bimble, UK armed forces slang, I am ex RAF a long time ago, had great fun with visiting USAF chaps I remember, and visiting USAF bases in Suffolk UK, many happy memories in the Officers mess drinking Schlitz beer and bourbon , yummy.

Felt I had to defend Harley a little bit, I have a 2017 Super Duke GT and among a few others an XR1200 X. very different bikes but both great fun. Harley has a bit of a deficit in ground clearance but it makes dragging everything through the bends nice and easy, and it weighs so much I think it would take an earthquake to move it offline.
If I'm out on either bike and see you riding by I'll make sure I wave back.

I have no problem with the MO CO. as far as my dad is concerned they are the only motorcycle. Everything else is just not a Harley.

I too am in the desert SW...Mesa AZ. Some wave and some dont. I usually get more waves on the Valk bobber because they dont know what it is until they get closer and then wave...but it is all good!
