You know, I can be out socializing and mention to someone that I ride, and inevitably they'll ask... You ride a Harley? It's the social mystique that Harley has built up, the branding, etc. I've got a friend who had a 650 Burgman, then bought a Forza, then traded to a Spyder, and now has also bought a Harley trike. So now he has 2 x 3-wheel bikes, each going the other way!

But the thing is, he also bought all the paraphanalia that goes with being a Harley rider. The do-rag, the Harley branded jacket, Harley sunglasses, T-shirts and on and on. It's all about image for him. But as I always say, to each their own.

Sure there are sport bike riders who won't talk to anyone except a gung-ho, leather clad sport rider, just like there are cruiser riders who look down their noses at others.

But there are also plenty of riders who just don't care what you ride as long as you are enjoying yourself. I class myself in this. For as I've always said... "Those that mind don't matter, and those that matter don't mind"!
