The Brotherhood of the Road

  1. The Brotherhood of the Road

    I love motorcycles, and I love riding. Like many of you, what first drew me to bikes was not just the experience of riding, but the feeling that I'd become part of a special community - a brotherhood, really. Nothing calms me more than a long ride down the highway, waving to the members of my beloved clan...

    ...Except when I pass Harley guys. I hate Harley guys. Hate, hate, hate. When they pass me on the highway, you know what I do? I don't wave. With their little tassel handlebars and the studded luggage and the half helmets - God, they drive me crazy.

    You know who else I hate? BMW guys. Oh, do I hate those guys. I don't wave at them either. They think they're so great, sitting all upright, with their 180 degree German engines. God, I hate them.

    They're almost as bad as those old bastards on their touring motorcycles. You know what I call those bikes? "Two wheeled couches!" Get it? Because they're so big. They drive around like they have got all day. Appreciate the scenery somewhere else, Grandpa.

    Oh, and Ducati guys - I don't wave at them either. Why don't they spend a little more money on their bikes? "You can have it in any color as long as it is red." Aren't you cool! Like they even know what a Desmo-whatever engine is, anyway. Try finding the battery, you Italian-wannabe racers! I never, ever wave at those guys.

    Suzuki guys aren't much better, which is why I never wave at them, either. God forbid they should ever wear any safety gear. They make me so mad. Sometimes they'll speed by and look over at me and you know what I do? I don't wave. I just keep going.

    Please, don't get me started on Honda guys. fireblades? What are you, twelve years old? I never wave at Honda guys.

    I ride a Kawasaki. I'll wave at Kawasaki guys, but, even then, I'll never wave at a guy in full leathers. Never, never, never. Yeah, like you're going to get your knee down on the Eastern Freeway. Nice crotch, by the way. Guys in full leathers will never get a wave from me, and, by the way, neither will the guys in two piece leathers. And I'll tell you who else I'm not waving at - those guys with the helmets with loud paint jobs. Four kilos of paint on a two kilo helmet - like I'm going to wave back at that! I'll also never wave at someone with a mirrored visor. Or helmet stickers. Or racing gloves. Or hiking boots.

    To me, motorcycling is like a family, a close knit brotherhood of people who ride Kawasaki's, wear jeans and a leather jacket (not Mars) with regular gloves and a solid color helmet with a clear visor, no stickers, no racing gloves and regular boots (not Rossi's). And isn't that what really makesThe Brotherhood of the Road so special?

  6. hahahah lol, good un, on another note...for the first time, I actualy got nodded at by a harley rider, ha! i thought that would never happen!
  7. What happened? I feel like our inner-children are just scared, and really wanna nod, so I've been nodding to everybody, even Harley riders with whom a feel no fraternity. I figure we'll all take our helmets off, wipe the tear from our eyes, and embrace. But the f*#ks don't nod back!
