Hot Dogs and Honda's
Stopped on the way home last night at my favorite hot dog stand..Old time drive in like you don't see much anymore..Ordered up my 4 chili dogs and pulled up a bench..Then this racket starts,,is it a bird, a plane,,no it's Yamahopper with straight Vance Hines pipes..He pulls up next to the Harley,,cuddies damn it run through my head..He wraps the pipes,,it sounds sorta like the cute girl in 8th grade English who cuts the cheese and says excuse me..you know make's ya wanna laugh...
Things got some bling, rider got all the bling..walks over and asks if he can share the table..Being the nice fellow I am I only think get your Yamahonda whopper cuddy riddle ass out of here and say pull up a bench..He orders his dogs and proceeds to give me the history of the bling bike from japan..Oh I forgot the excuse list..
Like most metric cruiser riders he had the list of why he didn't buy a Harley..Cost is the normal number 1...
Number 2..Jap shit don't break and Harley's are always in the shop..Well what few remaining brain cells I have kicked in..I asked where'd you hear that..The Yamamawhopper sales dude told me..Now add this with what dribbled out of his mouth next and the picture starts to get just a little less fuzzy..Also told me my bike has more American built parts than a Harley..Now for those boneheads who have bought into this bullshit I got a tropical Island I don't use much anymore for sale..call me..
Next I get to hear about the bling..there is chrome shit, bolted,,screwed, wire-tied and taped all over this thing..I spend $10,000 get it just how I wanted it..wow were up to $25,000 with a resale value of about $75.00...good thinking on your part..
Now his only complaint is that it's 3 years old and getting hard to find parts for cause it was discontinued a week after he bought it..But that's how the japs work..
So I'm getting ready to leave,,and I got to ask..How many miles you got on it..Almost 7000 he say's..I laugh and ask have you ever heard of BON and did you pray over it before you bought it..later..
