So I'm meeting a couple of friends for a ride Saturday morning. One guy has a 03 Fat Boy, they other a 06 Big Dog Chopper and I have an 03 V-Rod with more than a few mods. We meet at this old diner. I'm the last to get there and I pull in behind those two in the same parking spot and this older guy comes out and stares at my bike with a scowl on his face. I'm ready for the "thats not a real Harley" comment but instead I got the...is that one of those "new" hot rod Harley's? We were just two guys from two different generations taking time to discuss the pleasures of riding. He has a Road King but admired my bike. I admired he still rode. I hope I'm riding when I'm his age. Just thought I'd share my story of good start to a great day of riding.
Take care

Talk about admiring someone who still rode... Dropped off my bike at the dealer today for the insurance estimate. There was a very old guy in a wheelchair there. As we were leaving, we saw the staff and friends/family helping him out of the wheelchair onto the back of a Valkyrie. Looked like it might have been his son (probably in his late 60's) driving the big bike they were helping the older gentleman onto. There were 2 other bikes escorting them. HUGE GRINS all around!!!!!!!!!!!! I'd left my purse in my saddlebag, so we had to return, in time to see the 3 bikes leaving the parking lot. Even bigger grins.

No v-rod in the story here. Just a sweet generational thing.

I like it when there are a few bikes on a ride and none are the same make and model,it really shows the want and desire for riding and riding ones own style that makes them feel cool cruisin down the road.

I really like when people go out of their way to come up to me and strike up a conversation about my bikes,I usually do the same when I see one that catches my eye,no matter what style the person or the bike.


Yesterday,while gassing up,a buddy came up to my wife and I and told us we looked like we were someone on an important mission.
