What is the best (or worst) insult anyone has said about your rebel? Let's hear some creative stuff.
The one that sticks out in my mind was when an asshat called my 450 a moped.
I'd bet quite a lot of money the guy was riding a HD. For some reason there are some of those guys (not all by any means) that think nothing else is a real motorcycle. I've ridden lots of motorcycles and still have no desire to own an HD. YMMV.
Oh well, Insults from non-motorcyclists don't count because they know nothing at all about it. Come to think of it, my dear mother always referred to whatever motorcycle I was riding at the time as "your bicycle". She never did get the difference between "bicycle" and "bike" .
I don't mind names with affection tagged along, like when my boss asked me about my "scoot", he meant it with endearment, not insult.
Rather than someone calling a 250 a scooter simply because it's a motorcycle with a smaller CC than what they feel is required to ride.
Actually, he was a jealous hater who drove a Kia and has probably never rode a HD in his life. He didn't even own a motorcycle.
Given time, you will find that is exactly where the bulk of those moronic statements come from. Even if every (insert brand name here) rider in the world slung an insult about any other brand, it would pale by comparison to the number of non-riders that have something equally (if not more) ignorant to say.
I have a whole page of such accounts on my website dedicated to such types.
Feel free to take your pick of the best & worst from the Dudeman Files
"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself. http://shadow-shack.20m.com
