I was just over on my good friends, Tim & Vickie's blog, "Our Harley Days" at the following link: http://ourharleydays.blogspot.com/ and they had an incident happen to them up in Colorado (they live in Ft. Collins) while they were out on their Harley that they affectionately call "The Ride". Seems they had ridden The Ride over to Estes Park and stopped in at the Mountaineer Restaurant, and were inside minding their own business, and some guy started in on them. Seems he wanted to know why bikers always wore black and those "head things" and why Harley people always looked alike and compared them to penguins and scarecrows. He then went on about how he had a BMW M/C and how much BMW riders do for their communities and blah blah, blah. I suggest all of you viewers go Tim & Vickie's blog and read the entire episode.
I highly commend Tim on the restraint shown in not dragging the guy outside and stomping the crap out of him. That goes for Vickie too, because as we all know, that our biker ladies can open a big can of whoop ass if the moment calls for it, as this did. Great restraint guys. Probably saved you an assault charge & getting The Ride impounded.
So now, I want input from ALL you bikers out there and let's start a "Things you don't say or do to biker's that will cause you to get YOUR ASS KICKED by said bikers" list. I will start it out with the first two. The rest we can add as they come in from you, the viewers and bikers.
#1. If you ask stupid and idiotic questions to a biker that will insult him and the entire Harley Davidson Nation, you deserve to have YOUR ASS KICKED by everyone that rides a Harley, starting with those in Ft. Collins Colorado.
#2. If you touch a bike or think it's cute to sit on a motorcycle that's not yours for a photo op, you deserve and most likely will get YOUR ASS KICKED by it's owner and that goes for any make of bike. More likely from a Harley owner, first and foremost.
Okay that starts the list. Let's get this list growing and put out there for the uppity's and non-knowing, non-biker types. I think this will be good. Just email me or leave a comment with your list addition and it will be added. Remember to check out "Our Harley Days" at: http://ourharleydays.blogspot.com/ for the complete story on the idiot that inspired the list. Also, check this link for more on the Mountaineer Restaurant in Estes Park, Colorado: http://www.enjoyestespark.com/estespark.php?account=310
I also want to say, before someone goes off on me about it, that neither Tim & Vickie nor I have anything against BMW riders or any other make of bike that people ride. I currently ride a Kawasaki and am getting another Harley here in the very near future but since the guy made it a point to add the dig in on Tim & Vickie about HIS BMW and his opinion about BMW people in HIS community, well, that is the reason it was mentioned in their blog and this blog.
