Guys I do a 9-5 work grind every day. the only regular excerise I get is riding my pushbike to work and back 38kms a day. so the only time I get to enjoy a motorbike ride in the country, is on weekends. I got my bike for pure enjoyment, not for commuting. There is a huge difference. I know that the 1000cc hot sport bike guys hate the ‘weekend cruisers’ like me, because we are mobile chicanes to you guys. Getting to the point….as a pushbike rider I see a lot of dirty commuter bikes, road grime all through the guts of the engine and not a lot of ‘love’ given to the bike. They have got an excuse as its their main form of transport, but for me, my weekend enjoyment (along with my kids/jetski/woman) is cleaning my Eliminator to within an inch of its life, and then take it out for a 2 hour plus cruise. The 1000cc plus superbikes get past me in a blink, so I cant be that much of a chicane, but the part I love the best, (on top of the beautiful experience motorbike riding is through Adelaide hills)….. is when I roll up to the various hang outs that the bikers visit in the hills, bakeries/pubs/brothels, and people from all bike denomination types come out into the parking area and appreciate my bike and its immaculate condition. Even though its clearly, not a grunt bike. Is your bike just pure grunt enjoyment machine, and u dont care if it looks the best, or is it given a toothbrush clean like me regularly…or a bit of both?
