Been only riding for a few monthsos a new rider but wandering if what happened today is going to be the norm??? With a break in the rain, decided to go for a quick ride just after lunch so thought I'd just go to my father's cemetery at Springvale for a visit. Got to the Mausoleum area and parked in the park bay provided and noticed some big guy looking towards me but didn't thing anything of it. Went to my fathers grave then on return, found this guy who had driven his car near my bike just standing there. As I was putting on my gear, he was still looking at me so I asked him if I was doing anything wrong. Then he started. You blokes shouldn't be allowed in here and should stay out. You're nothing but trouble and I'm making sure you leave here without causing trouble and went on and on. I was dumbfounded and said "you are not serious are you?" He replied "quicker you get out the better and was waiting for me to leave". Still couldn't believe it and said to him "You are dumb as you are fat!" He started about bikes making too much noise so I replied "don't worry, I'm sure none of the residents will wake up". Now not that this should make any difference but honestly, I ride a gs500f with stock exhaust quieter that many cars. I'm 47, was wearing enduro style jacket and did take my hemet off so I think I'm a pretty simple looking rider. Called him a hypocrite and rode off as he really wasn't worth the effort... I was wondering if other riders have experienced this sort of discrimination just because you ride a bike?
