Well, i have cooled off a little after last night, so i can better articulate this question. Has anyone out there EVER made fun some someone or talked sh1t (not in a fun, joking manner) to someone because they ride a slightly lesser than bike?
Incident in question happened last night. after 12 hours on the clock in the kitchen of a popular, local restraunt, i was in less than a great mood. stopped by a gas station to grab some smokes before i headed home. Pulled in and parked, saw a new GS500 sitting on the other side of an SUV. So inside, get my smokes and as i am walking out i see a couple fraternity guys making comments about the GS500 to its rider. "Hey, nice bike...could not afford a real one?" "What a POS", and so on. Then the one guy looks to the other and says, "When i get my '02 R1, i will be smoking everyone." Thinking they know each other and are joking, i look to the rider. He obviously does not know these guys and is busy getting his helmet on to leave. To prove my good mood, i did not just walk away from a fellow rider being dumped on. I stop and ask the guy what he rides. "Uh, nothing right now." "So, what have you ridden before?" "Well, this NEW bike will be my first." "You are getting an R1 as your first bike?" "Hell yes. I do not want to be seen on a p***y bike." I just laughed and smiled. I told the guy, "Well seeing as how you ride nothing, that GS500 is a sh1t ton faster than you on your little rosey huffy, and f**K you for running my insurance so high when your dumb a$$ wrecks on your new R1. What is keeping you from getting it? mommy not sent you the money yet?" Well, of course he did not like this. Seeing my helmet, he asked what i rode. Simply replied, "it did not matter, i could beat him rubbing one off and hoping on one leg." "Oh, and by the way, I love your music." He asked "what?" as he looked at his buddies. "Aren't you guys NySNC?" Well, i laughed, the girl behind the counter laughed and the guy getting on his bike started laughing. It was priceless seeming them fume with their jellied hair, trendy ear rings, and standing there all three wearing the same damn hawaiian shirts and khakki shorts. Well to end it, he made a gesture like he wanted to fight, a cop pulled up just about then, i winked at "Justin", got on my bike and rode off smiling. Sometimes it just amazes me. Feel better now
