I generally get a great kick out of you bloggers and your rantings lately until I read 1 about..of all things.. Harleys and the people riding them these days. Get a few things straight,Harley and performance are 2 words that dont go together. a stock Harley these days will outlive most bikes, but you have to leave it alone. If you insist on performance stay out of your dealers garage and his h-d catalogs. If you insist on H-D be prepared to be passed by Easter eggs with less than half the price,maintenance and cubic inch displacement. At least the logos will match your lovely new closet full of dealership purchased clothes. Wow.If your one of these products of American marketing welcome to the playground. We will let you play here. We know you are the ones who speculated on mother Harleys stocks and brought her back to greatness, but please slow down on calling yourself a biker. I know you wear your shiny 'Live-To-Ride-Ride-to-Live'vest to all the rallys but I can see the imprint of a clothes hanger showing in the back. Thank you for turning our rallies into a flea market of tee shirt stands. I really dont mind, really! I was getting tired of watching Spike get drunk and pick bugs out of his scraggly beard anyway. Id much rather talk to your hot leatherclad trophy girlfriend while you run into Starbucks to get your dbl grande mocha latte what ever. Just dont spill it on your new cardigan sweater as you get back on your bike.Real bikers wake up, we have to let the ham-an-eggers play here or we are back to being curbside helping Joe-Bob wrench his carb back to life. Sure we get irritated at Clean alligator boots riding a cream colored harley up main st at Daytona but hey this is America, Do what I do. Drop a five on the ground before you walk into a rally and pretend you just paid admission to the circus. It changes everything. dont worry though Spike and Joe-Bob will be waitin at the bar for us after. As for the Easter egg riders, you can hang around too, when I blow your eardrums out and your doors off with my real performance motorcycle. (it says H-D on the outside only)I wanna introduce you to my friends at the bar. After all this is about fun isnt it?

You know your a biker when... all your cars and trucks are parked outside because the garage is full of bikes and parts. you think (KNOW!) women are turned on by the sound of a bike starting. you have a collection of air filters (10) but only one fits your current bike. every shirt you own is cotton with something written on it. you think that dressing up means puttihg on a brand new t-shirt and jeans. all your pants are stained with chain lube. you have more riding boots than dress shoes. you have three sets of tools metric ,regular and those goofy british things. sunday is set aside for riding instead of watching sports on tv. when your bike makes a funny ticking noise and you know right away what it is without even looking. you don't even flinch when your hit by a bug when riding. you can tell what bike it is just by hearing the exhaust. someday you would like to find your first bike and restore it. your bike is worth more than your car or truck. you shudder when you see some body tighten spokes with a cresent wrench. the sides of your tires are worn more than the center. you know how and when to use your front brake. the only springsteen you know rides flat track. you wash your parts in old gasoline even though it's about as safe as sorting out live rattle snakes. almost nothing on your new bike is stock and almost everything on your vintage bike is. when your income tax comes in you start thinking about buying bike parts.

bdel3har- been on a bike since i was a child at 5 and aint stopped yet. Rode a 48 pan to high school with my scraggle little beard long hair and ripped jeans flyin in the wind. Also worked on everyone elses toys then too. So b4 you go assumin I was the thing I make fun of, get alittle knowledge about who your talkin too first. My dad was a real biker so I had the priveldge of learning from the best not a wanna be. So at 42 Ive been ridin for 37 fkn yrs. And if all that doesnt qualify me 2 you, tuff sh@t. Sorry I'll go change my pictures to the ones with me in my riding gear to convince you REAL bikers I am one. haaaa. NOT! Dont really care bout that. My pics arent for the guys... Remember this is a dating site. My pics are for the women. Anymore questions sir? _________________________________ HEY road glide ...I couldnt have missed the point...umm its my blog and my point... Dont like it your free to comment, as you have. If your one of the folks I make fun of maybe you need to get the point, which is its ok for you to hang around just stop tryin to be something you arent. And if you have a beautiful trophy girlfriend what the hell are you doin on a biker dating site???? Sounds like someones tryin to be something there not again. Didnt I just tell you about that.

to ob26 whatever..haha dude , I'm not insultin Texas. nono. I'm actually jealous, Yes I'll admit it. Like the comedian Ron White said it best..While the rest of the country is fightin the death penalty, Texas is putting in an Express lane. Not to mention your states views on Guns. Up north we are full of wimpy liberals who dont know their @sses from a hole in the ground. But someones gotta stay up here and try to keep them in check. Mine-as-well be me and some like me even though we are a minority,so... Kudos to Texas..but the Cowboys still suck! There! happy? haha __________________________________ NOW...MANEATER...I did not tell you to wear them high heels when you jump rope. Next time I will be more clear...20-30 minutes jumping rope 3 times a week WHILE WEARING PROPER FOOT WEAR will increase endurance and stimulate the heart without the high impact ankle and knee trauma associated with jogging. NOW!! When Welding with a Miller PROPER FOOTWEAR IS ALSO A MUST. Do I need to go on?.....

Maneater, Hi, does that come delivered from your hands of a woman that can weld? A week ago I would have taken you up on that offer, but as for now, I have just started another session of sobriety, with today the 16th, being my 6th day invested I believe. I've done it once for 6 months, 8 months, and an 8 yr stint after it helped take a life do to my dumb ass at the time. 15 yrs ago. But really thanks for the offer, count it an extra for you provided you stay home. So ya still wanna come over? ya can try out Miller's newer welder Dynasty GTAW machine. Excellent choice versus Lincoln. Get ahold of me I'll tell you why. Oh and there's still a few shots of Yukon Jack left in the freezer, but your not allowed to leave here intoxicated.

Pan... along the same lines...to quote from Ivanhoe on A&E...and I hope I get this right..."You can do what you will with my body sir but you will never have my soul" or something like that. So, yeah...what is in your mind, heart and soul is yours alone, I agree. Yours and God's. Yes,I believe in Him.

Panheadstick, You are so right. And yes I should know how to fix my own car..well basics anyway. Because it is true, self sufficiency and independence make us stronger and better equipped to deal with all aspects of life. Hmmmm no wonder I flounder all over the place. At any rate, you are wise and kind to feel that way, to want women to be able to do for themselves so they are not stuck in a dangerous situation. Hugs Pan, T BTW, does fixing a window frame with that wall patch stuff and a nail file count? A little paint and presto...ya'd never know it wasn't real wood. I was so proud of myself.

Dave, you present a good point, (however lengthy.) 'True bikers come in different packages'... and,' Get to know people before you judge.' I am new to biking also coming from a background of endurance horse racing. What I find around here are bikers who ride for an hour to get to the next bar. So much for the thrill of the open road. SO ok. Fine. I ride alone, so I can ride as long and as much as I want. My point is we all have a place on this planet,and everyone is needed er regardless of what we ride or what we wear when we do it, Every voice/vote needs to be heard when it comes to getting crucial legislation passed that affects our way of life or limits our freedom. Life is too short to be so judgemental.

BIIIIIGGGGGGG KKKIIIISSSS for you Treasure, no I actually wasn't thinking about woman on that note, but I would believe we were both put here to make each other happy, and care for each other to, BUT God did give us all brains and it is up to us what we do with them, and I do believe in my own opinion only, that if you was mine I want ya to know how to either maintain and be capable of at least fixin some of the mere simpler stuff, so's if you were out alone you could get youself yout of an unwanted predictament. I have done repairs on the side of some very desalent roads, and that was down to having basically 1/2 motor apart, and got the rest of the way back. I think you need to remember this as I was told by an old boss while I did my stint in the big house and western penn. is refering to gov. they can take your freedom, they can take your life, but they can never take out what's in your head and your knowledge, so everyday learn something, and it's yours to keep forever. Now did you learn how to kiss yet? I learned how to cheat the garbage man, save some of the earth and start fires. (Sorry for side tracking from the blog Bob, but she opened the door).
