I really thought we Harley snobs had the corner on the market..not so I learned today..after replacing fork seals after a short unexpected trip in the gravel on the outside of the fast lane I fired up the ole dog and headed over to get some gas and a diet dew..
After tossing Omar a five spot I stroll back out to pump ethyl..There sits my poor shovelhead surrounded by Jap Junk.Wannabe Harleys and the over dressed fellows who ride them..They are eyeballing my stuff...talking in hand signals..as strool up to feed my baby some high test..
Now over the years I have through experience learned that the story is always the same with different variations..My brothers cousins uncles step daughters boyfriends dog had a Harley and it was always in the shop..Where upon I normally come back with a polite Fuck it musta had a ton a chrome on it..only reason I know to take one to the shop..Now it could be the language but what ever it is that normally gives you a 30 second break before the next anti-Harley line..
Then you get to hear how reliable them hondodos are..Well sir how many miles you got on that there rice burner..Today it was I have had it for 3 years and it has never once been in the shop except for service..and it's got 6000 miles on it..Now ladies and germs..if you want your bike to never break..last forever it's easy don't ride it..Really..I got 241306 miles on mine..and ya it leaks a little oil..Only time it ever got fixed in a shop I was taking care of some business over a ticket working with the county for a few days and needed it back when my time was up..didn't own a car..A few more seconds of silence..
As I reached over to pop off my old dog eared non-smog gas caps trying to conceal my smile over the baffled look on their faces I had to laugh..Gentlemen it's a great day for a ride..enjoy..as me and my diet dews pulled out into the wild blue..
