Welcome aboard from a current metric owner. That could change in the future but will have to wait until I'm home to sell them. I bought my ride cuz I dig the heck out of it but doesn't mean I dislike the others. Now some of the riders and their anti Harley BS makes me want to dump my bikes more than anything but I'm cool with what anyone wants to ride. I don't pay their bills or own them so it's not my place to judge them for what they ride as long as they aren't a jackass.
