She and her husband frequently ride their bikes to distant Harley dealerships so they can buy Harley tshirts and other trinkets.

She saw I rode my Kawasaki Ninja 500 to work and was surprised at all the gear I wear. Since it's an easy 100 degrees plus high humidity, she assumed I was burning up. My gear is ventilated so it only gets warm when you're sitting at a stoplight.

She ended up telling me she didn't really like the Harleys much and thought the Ninjas were better, but she'd never admit it to her husband since he's a complete dress-up Harley rider, complete with no safety gear and loud pipes.

Sounds like nothing out of the ordinary. The only people who ever comment on my ATGATT (all the gear all the time) style are either
A) those who dont ride
B) Harrrrrrrrly riders

In between. Smokes but kind of cute. Tall but not rough.

Yeah, loud pipes save lives! They provide a magic invisible air cushion to soften your landing when you fall, that's why they don't need all that safety gear!

Girlfriend is (almost, still have to certify) a PA in the ER and she rode an F4 for years. She's 29.

I love Harleys. I love "retro" looking motorcycles.

That why I own a Triumph Bonneville. That's why I want a Royal Enfield and a Ural, with a sidecar.

(To help you better understand my personality-I LOVE revolvers, and I think that they're way cooler than semi-autos. I also love mechanical watches. That's why I own a Rolex and a Ball.)

While I do understand people ribbing certain types of Harley riders, I don't get the hate for the bikes themselves.

When I have my house, and a garage, I will own a Harley.

I'll also own a Ducati, my Concours, hopefully a BMW, and a Gixxer.

Motorcycles are cool.

Then there are those of us who remember the days of "the list", 50% over MSRP dealer markups and all the other sh!t which followed along.

I have no use whatsoever for most Harley dealerships.

And the only bike of theirs I'll ever own will be bought used - either whole or in swap-meet pieces then assembled by me.

We let Harley riders ride along with us, we don't hold what they choose to ride against them...

Girlfriend is (almost, still have to certify) a PA in the ER and she rode an F4 for years. She's 29.

and doesn't seem to get any easier after you do it every six years...

I'm not really into motorcycles, but the Royal Enfield military pattern bike w/sidecar is hotness.

There's a Royal Enfield/Moto Guzzi club that meets by where I live and some of the Enfields they have are astounding.

Yup - mesh gear is great!
My daily commute involves boots, knee/shin guards, riding jacket, riding gloves, and FF helmet.

...and close attention to the A-holes in cages with a cell phone slapped up against their left ear who don't look when changing lanes!

True. A guy at work get all gussied-up when riding the crotch rocket but, after his recent acquisition of a Sportster of some type he's goes with the bowl helmet and the fingerless gloves etc. Says it'd look funny to wear all the protective gear while Harley riding.

Alright first real use of my pic!

And no gear is for idiots.

What looks even funnier is life with no lower jaw.

I'm here today because of a full face helmet. It made a hell of a dent in the FEDEX drop box.

We have a very nice young girl (mid 20's) that rides a lot around the neighborhood. Usually in a tank top and shorts. I dread the day the ambulance comes for her.
