Exactly. I also notice that anyone who says "Nice Bike" is considered a genius and scholar and anyone who says they don't like is a moron and an idiot.The problem is when most people do this "I beat this guy" threads, its usually the rider not the bike you beat.
3 oldmen eating Lil Debbies snack cakes at the Fuel n' Go say "Hey I like that, never saw anything like that before" 3 Geniuses (story of course turns into "While getting gas today 3 guys came up and wanted to know what I was riding and loved it")
A guy who fixes or sells or knows bikes tells you why he doesnt like your bike, well he is an idiot of course.
Then there is my Favorite who like to go on and on about how people on "Expensive Bikes" just buy them to show off and looking for attention. But minutes later the same say "I love this bike, it gets a lot of attention everywhere I go"
