Okay, I may ruffle some feathers here, but I was just thinkin' the opposite! I've not had any problems or disrespect from the "traditional" Harley rider. Some may not like my bike, but that's fine. I like many "traditional" Harley's, but not all, and I don't like all V-rod's either.Gr8Guy said:I'm wondering if anyone else gets the same reaction I do. Here is So CA, there seems to be an "us against them" attitude from the traditional harley riders and us VRod'rs. I don't know what the BS is. I thought harley folks were a pretty all-inclusive group... Maybe it's just me, but I get a lot of what I call, glares, whenever I come up on a "traditional" harley rider. It doesn't make sense to me. Harley has produced a bike that performs to a new level of excellence, creates more interest and excitement in riding and moves the company well into the future. Why would you want to resist that??? They need to get over it.... :whack:

Less of the macho crap attitude. The traditional HD guy usually needs either larger attitude than actual balls or if a RUB like most of us they'll get their Harley as an attitude statement while melting his Nautica shirt under a thick $800 leather jacket on 80-90 degree weather. To me it's just the best bike. The demon SPEED, the fun, the science of it, all of this and looking cool (as in not squidish) is nowhere else to be found. I think in general (very) we tend to suffer less internal pains, be more secure, and just able to enjoy. But there's a lot of conservatives here as well.
