Scared off posers

Took wife out to eat at the wing joint and a line of bikes parked in the mc parking. Thought "right on" got some drinkin buddies. Got out on patio and bunch of frat boy lookin guys in shorts and flip flops. Not long after we sat down they headed out... in their flip flops and shorts. Told wife "those are bikes that have never left town"

I dunno, I'm wondering if the posers are taking over anymore.

Was at a fundraiser yesterday and a club showed up with mostly crotch rockets. Of course they were more than welcome, it was a fund raiser, and they were all pretty decent guys, but I couldn't help but laugh at the Tupperware Brigade.

I dunno, maybe I'm getting soft in my old age, as long as your riding and having fun I'm ok with it no matter what your ride, but I draw the line with shorts and flip flops. Short of that, I get along with everyone.

I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather, not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

When I was a child, I thought nap time was punishment.
Now it's like a mini-vacation.

Scared off posers !!!LOL


While back took little road trip back to my home town and it was last minute decision and took off after work on a Friday at 4:00pm and knew It would be 1 or 2am when I would get there and about ten I pulled into this gas station and there were dozen or more custom choppers and they were nice lookin bikes, I could use the standard poser description but nowdays who friggin knows??? I'll just say the guys looked like they were right outta high school?

The whole time I'm fuelin up my phones ringin off the hook and I answer it and for some reason some stupid azz drama with youngest son and his in-laws is blowin up?, just stupid chit that didn't amount to anything but the whole idea of botherin me with it for some reason got me madder than h3ll so I was going off talking loudly into my phone to a couple family members and sons in-laws and I get off the phone and all these guys on the custom bikes are staring at me and I realize my big mouth was receiving my foot and walk off toward side of the parking lot...when I did that everyone there seemed to get in a hurry and split. the end...LOL Not that I'm scary,just pizzed

I might not have scared off poser, more likely they had things to do and just wanted to get away from some effer screamin into his phone LOL

Guy I know who got into biker things 7-8 years ago bought a harley three summers back, He started asking about oil change intervals and I told him what I do and he said the guy he bought his from kept records and that the previous owner did motor every 2500 miles and primary and trans every 5000 miles and the previous owner had serviced the bike right before he bought it. I said and you have not changed oil since and he said "Nope have 2000 miles to go?
So I'm guessing not only has this bike not left town but hasn't left the neighborhood??

Same thoughts here!
Most of the times, places I go still see mostly Harleys but depending what going on? might see other kinds of riders. Rolled into a town few years back and it was 100 degrees out and BMW motorcycles were everywhere, didn't know it but I rolled into some kind of Sturgis for BMW's..LOL

One other time in arkansas came across hundred? guys on them things they called duel sport bikes, kinda like enduro's but kinda not.
Rode up on a group in Indiana that rode nothing but late 70's early 80's suzuki's some certain model can't remember? bout hundred of them had some kinda suzuki sturgis LOL

Was out Saturday riding with GF and stopped to wet our whistles.
A street glide was parked by the door with the saddle bag open.
Not being one to touch other peoples property I figured I'd find the guy inside and let him know.
Well looked around and couldn't find anybody that looked like they rode it, like every guy in there was in shorts and flip flops.
Had a good chuckle with GF and said fugg it.

Hey Pal! I remember you pulling in. We didn't leave because of you, we were running late for our glee club! And those flip flops were leather!

Dunno that I would call a bunch of dudes in shorts and flip flops riding bikes 'posers'....


They're not trying to look like bikers, they're just riding their bikes, and probably new at it...they'll eventually get the sh*t burnt outta their leg on a pipe, and quit wearing shorts...


A 'poser' to me, would be a dude wearing full on leathers, Harley shirts, and less than 10k miles on their 2 year old bike...
