    Lone tw in a sea of harleys

    Went on a charity run today and was not only the only tw but the only duel-sport there, the harley riders were all very nice to me. I had a lot of them come over to me to ask what is that? most thought is was a cool little bike, very few knew what it was. It was a good time and a good cause and I had a lot of fun. Oh and I was the only person there not wearing leather to.20131214_094034.jpg20131214_094054.jpg20131214_094209.jpg20131214_100420.jpg20131214_112316.jpg well there was a few hondas there 1 goldwing and 6 sport bikes and 1 yamaha 600.

    20131214_114526.jpgYes Santa was on a harley, when we were on the ride a bike turning if front of santa went down, he was not with the ride but some random rider and what was funny he was picked up off the ground by santa! he and his bike were not hurt but decided to join the ride after that. It was called the rudolph run where we go to a whole bunch of businesses and pick up toys for the toys for tots charity.

    Your 87 is awesome. The windscreen and hand guards are awesome. Would love to see a write up on them if you have time please. I've done a benifit ride with Harley's before. They were very accommodating speed wise. Glad you got to have some end of the year fun.

    Yes was going to do a write up on the bike when I get everything done, still working the bugs out of it. boy a tw sticks out like a sore thumb next to a bunch of harleys. Some of the harley riders looked a little jealous when I told them where I ride this thing. I don't own a street bike and never will again I don't like being limited where I can ride. Seems every time I go for a ride I end up in the woods somewhere.

    I suppose if you roll in on your TW to a cozy tavern where Harley bikers hang out you might get some resistance. I have never heard of a bunch of Harley riders out for a nice ride being anything but friendly with other bikers and it is all good. This mystique that hog riders hate all other bikes is just that, mystique!

    Most big bike guys who came from early dirt riding should find our bikes very desirable. You do know that roads get real boring mile after mile and a sweet looking trail along the way is exactly why I have a Dub. I can do U turns when I see a cool trail quicker than any hog and leave them in my dust!

    Be Decisive! Right or Wrong just make a decision. ​ The road of life is paved with flat squirrels that couldn't make a decision.

    Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
