I had something happen to me recently, and the more I think about it the more it irritates me. I stopped at a local bar on the way home from a work related meeting. I had to dress nicely for this meeting, so I had in newer blue jeans, a pull over shirt with long sleeves and three buttons in the front of the collar (black of course), and nice cowboy boots. I had ridden my road king, so I pulled off my coat, helmet, and gloves and left them in my saddle bags. I walked into this bar and sat down next to a friend of mine, and we were talking, when this kid walkes up to my buddy, and tells him that he has a nice bike. After a few minutes we realized that the kid was talking about my bike, and my friend told him so. The kid thought we were joking at first, and then accused both of us of lieing to him. He said that the RK could not be mine because I did not LOOK like a biker Now the more I think about this, the more I want to know what a biker looks like. I was under the impression that bikers were originally nonconformists. They were not slaves to fashion or fads. I was under the impression that the leathers were for protection, both from the elements and from road rash. When did leathers become the benchmark for bikers to be judged by? Did I miss some memo that I could not have my own look? Am I a nonconformist among nonconformists? To me it is about a Passion for riding. The look means nothing. I cannot think of a single biker who would fault me for wearing attire appropriate for my job on that day. Yet the image this kid had of all bikers was that they have to fit a certain image at all times So what do you all think proper attire is? Do you fit into the biker stereotype? BTW I escorted the loudmouth kid outside and gave him the option to leave or discuss my "lie" further...He apologized and left (although the apology may have been under duress)

I wouldn't worry about what people think when they are the kind who only look at the veneer. Before taking on a comment. Look at who is making the comment and whether they are someone who you respect and would take a comment from in the first place. Anyway. he was only a kid. Still at the stage when image is everything. (Some people still haven't grown out of that way of thinking even in there 50s. take care. You have the respect of those that matter. Junie

not much of an arch to that learning curve of yours, is there K6? I really couldn't care less about your opinion about me. I removed your blogs because of your argumentative and derogatory attitude towards women. I hear bullys talk big all the time, and find it more humorous than anything, but it ends when you attack women. I have no need to defend myself against the likes of you. This would do nothing but award you the attention you so desperately seek. I have invited you to email me, and settle this personally on a couple occasions, but you seem to lack the intestinal fortitude to do anything but hide behind your facade and talk big on the blogs. I was satisfied to let this blog die, and still am. My offer still stands...If you want to talk to me, send an email

I have removed the hateful postings by K6, and my last one requesting that of him. I have little tolerance of a bully, and saw no reason to tolerate it any further. You are still invited to email me and discuss this further, if you still have a problem K6. It will no longer be on this blog though

harley sweetcheeks... i can tell by your attitude your single. and i am sure you do know women bigger than me most women from n.y. are bigger...bigger mouths. but you and your women are bike riders cause being called a biker is something you will never be called...go to any club house in america and see if you will be acknowledged as a biker..as a woman yes...biker no....so i wouldnt use the term so loosely i think the term would be more like...A BIKERS OLE LADY !

k6 Well may I say Happy V-Day to you cause with your sorry attitude on women your one lonely dude. I was a very good house mouse for 24 years, and I was still aloud to have opion cause my MAN was not scared of listening to my opion, we lived a very HAPPY life thank you. And yes if all I have to choose from is azzholes like you I'd rather stay single. I did reread what you wrote maybe you should read it. Your cutting people down, makes you feel big huh? Have a wonderful day.
