Wow now these kind of stories may have just saved it from the JP!! lol
thats Great Man Gotta keep the keep the flame going huh
When i was out Buying my First Bike(88 sporty 1200) I had saved up about $2300 for my Bike Fund but was still looking around for bikes within my range. I Had found the bike that was calling me on Craigslist but... the guy wanted $3200ish. I liked the bike a lot!! but I told him Unfortunatly I cant buy It because I only have about $2300 at the moment (not trying to lowball).
He then asked "Are you working?".. I said "Yes"
Then he said "Ok We can do a Gentleman's Agreement, you don't Screw me over, I dont screw you over... We call it 3K even and the Last of it you can pay in payments whenever you have a chance"
Thats when I Rushed to the Bank Got all I Could get together and when i got back there he stood Notarized Title in hand along with a Big Box of original Parts he had taken off and parts he had yet to put on. Every time I went to drop off a payment he found other parts he had for it and Owner manuals ect... He also showed me alot of tips here and there knowing this was my first bike!!
Okay, I will chime in here with my story. It has been a couple years now but this guy (okay, I wanted to say something else here, you insert something but wait until the end of the story) comes up and says of course "nice bike what is it"? I said "56 Pan", which by the way is what the license plate says. And, here is what he said next "Who makes it"????????? Now wait a minute, this guy has (not that there is anything wrong with this) the shaved head, tatoos, cut vest, biker boots, etc, etc....and then I ask my riding buddy "Tonto" who rides a 34 Indian, who the fuck is that guy? He tells me he owns a custom chopper shop here in town (name withheld).....Anyways, I have been around motorcycles for over 40 years, have built from the ground up both of my Pan's and I am no expert and will definitely ask questions like so many others have stated on this forum, but wait a minute if you own a chopper shop do you think you would know what a Pan is and who makes it?????

Just something i was taught by my elders who lived the life so many are TRYING to live today!
When on a bike, you'll meet one of 3 people at any given time. The dude that had a Harley but had to sell it for some reason, (kids, wife, scared, etc) The one that wants a Harley or the guy that's got one in pieces at home.

Almost every time I ride through a popular party area in town on a Friday or Saturday night, some douchebag steps out of a crowd of pedestrians and says that.
I'm riding this:
I assume he figures it's cool and he wants to impress his posse. I usually just say "thanks". Gotta give the douche's something. However, if they say "bro" I usually give them my mean face and reply "I'm not your fuckin' bro."
The other day, I rode my FXR out to get lunch. While standing in line just outside the door of a little restaurant some random dude says to me "is that your bike?" I turn to look at him, then the bike, (just to make sure it's okay). I reply "yes". He then tells me "You need to sell that shit and get an FXR! ". I take a step back and shake my head "Um, that is an FXR". He then says "Naw, that ain't no FXR" then attempts to school me as to what an FXR really is. I couldn't get a word in as he was rambling off. About a dozen words into it he refers to me as "Bro". I looked right at him and stuffed my gloved finger down his throat as far as I could. He fell to his knees and puked. I said "I'm not your fuckin' bro you dumbfuck!" He got up and staggered out of the restaurant.
The comments so far have been about twats annoying you. Thing is, today someone thought I was the twat & couldn't wait for me to leave him alone.
I was walking down the road & there was this guy in his 60s parked on the road sat on a 1974 registered triumph oil in frame scrambler. I stopped & asked him about his bike and he said it was a 1974 triumph in a rickman scrambler frame. It was mint, twin shocks etc. the bike was so great that I really wanted to talk to him. He wasn't interested so I ended up telling him I had a sporty chop. He didn't really believe me. I ended up saying that it was a nice bike and walked on.
He was an arrogant shit, but he didn't ask me to start talking to him. I invaded his moment.
Meh, there's always an asshole out there and if there isn't chances you're the asshole. I'm sure that I've been the asshole on more than one occasion, we all have, the trick is being able to pull it off with both style and grace. (I have no chance in hell at this I'm a big ass Norwegian oaf) Gloved finger down the gullet = pure asshole with so much class and style that it's pure gold. Guy sitting on the Trump lookin' cool being an asshole not so classy, sure his ride may have been but if you're gonna make someone feel like shit for complementing them it's not so cool. I'd suggest making sure you've got your gloves handy next time you're about to pay some too cool for school guy a compliment about his ride.
I hope my tonsil fingerbanging rape story didn't hijack the thread.
you can lose a finger doing that. a good two finger poke to the clavical notch does the trick just as well and its just a pressure point, not a mouth rape. who the fuck wannts their hand in a strange dudes mouth, thats just some strange shit
