Dude, I have completely given up on the notion of suggesting other riders around here take training seriously. By and large, and forgive my generalizing here... but cruiser riders are some of the least motivated riders, and worst selective cheapskates that ever walked the Earth. Some of these guys will spend cash on chrome and leather like it's the last commodity available, but if you suggest that people get proper riding gear, a well-fitting helmet or *gasp* training to actually learn how to RIDE the stupid bike, and it's like you're talking Greek to a bunch of deaf, mute moto-cannibals.
I mean, ya know, no offense to anyone in particular and all, but the only thing worse than some of the attitudes I see on this board are the stupid, idiotic, chrome-lovin' cro-magnons over at HDForums.com.
Ok, that's a little harsh. A little. Some of the folks here are clearly concerned about safety and quality riding, but we're in the minority. Of that I'm sure.
Now if you'll excuse me I'm gonna go out to my garage and drop my bike, now. Seems to be the cool thing to do.
