Some of these guys are on the wrong forum Pete. They are confused. Course I guess that the HD forum is boring. They all look alike and they don't have any stories about who they raced and beat. I don't care what they own. HD is OK for some. Just don't expect people on a 9 forum to bow down and agree with you in your views. If you want one buy it. I don't care. Its your money. But you can't go to Busch Stadium and root for the Cubs.
With all due respect, all of the Boulevards/M109's look alike too. Just like all of the Street Glides look alike and the VRods look alike, the VStroms look alike, the Ninjas look alike....you get the picture. Can't we just be happy with whatever someone else chooses to ride? I don't understand where this dislike for Harley's comes from. You make fun of them, stating all the oil spills and problems that people have with them. Have you read all the threads in this forum with members having the same problems with their 9's? Clutch problems, leaks, etc. There is no perfect bike. I'm just happy to know that there are others out there that enjoy riding...be it on a HD or Suzuki.
JMHO, good day!
I got beat by a Sportster, but I was riding my 360. He didn't brag much, but did buy me a beer!
Yes, it's EXACTLY what shooter said. Go brag about your HDs on a HD forum. You don't hear me bragging about my VMax or my Goldwing here, do you? No? Because I HAVE A LITTLE COMMON SENSE!!!
I certainly hope this post above isn't directed at me. I don't brag about my Harley here or anywhere else. Simply stating that I ride one is not bragging. I don't brag about beating other bikes like so many here do. I don't brag that my bike is faster like so many here do. I don't brag that people always stop to look at my bike like so many here do.
Yanno, this isn't the only non HD bike site that I frequent but this is the only non HD site that has made me feel unwelcome. I hope that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy. :edit:
If this is getting your panties in a bunch, step back and ask yourself what people on a M109R site want to talk about.
Know what I like about Hardleys? The pink slips when I race them! Hahahahahaha, just kidding, I'd sell the things if I won them.
If Hardley Ablesons were women, this is what they would look like:
No you didn't lie :D
I too belong to Goldwing forums, this forum & now The Roadglide forum but who has time to spread negative vibes NOT ME im to busy enjoying life with whatever bikes i own & ride, some are still young dumb chewing buble gum
You know I really don't care what you ride. L2P is a great guy. I thoroughly enjoy his posts. He is a rock for this forum. He don't have a nine. Ricochet has a R3 but he isn't on here dissing our bikes. HD's are ok for some people. Just not me. If I wanted to hear how good they are I would join a HD site. I don't understand the other sides fascination with our site. It could be that we have the Coolest Forum On the Planet!!!!! That's it. they are not only jealous of our Bikes. They are jealous of our forum and all the Rockstar Board Members we have. I finally figured it out.
