99' Valkyrie/North Central Indiana
I find this thread very invigorating as the "layup season" for most is about to begin. I can't ever say I been snubbed by any biker in 52 yrs. of riding and I have spent time around 1% crowd with me riding metric. Yes they would ride my arse but we still would go fishing together but I never rode with them as it was HD & Triumph only club. The post EVO crowd are a different sort but for the most part are decent people though on occasion you find one that's a little aloof but they are that way anyway in real life. Riding a Valkyrie I definitely don't have any issues with other bike folk for quite obvious reasons. One of my son's HD friends came up to me and asked "How's feel to be fastest bike here and riding in the back of the pack? We're afraid you would lose us if you were in front." The rides/routes they take are very generic in comparison to what I take but.... And yes all my 3 sons ride Harley so I'm still the odd one out so to speak.
