Funny I had to share

I saw this today and thought it was worthy of sharing!

It's funny, so many dress like "bikers" with all the black leather but I bet if they own a boat they don't dress like pirates when they go boating! Why is that?

Only a biker knows why a dog sticks his head out of a car window. ~Author Unknown

That is something to consider. We were at an event Tuesday evening where many bike gather because of live music and the owner is a biker as well. Bikes of all types are welcome along with some Custom cars and Rat rods. I ride in with deck shoes, cargo shorts silk shirt and black beret. Then there are the full leathered up and tattooed riders (no disrespect but I call it their costume). I am the same person on my bike as I am when I'm off of it, yet we watched those that take on other personalities the moment they fire up their bikes. How many have observed the same?

Yes, I have. My business partner was abhored that I wanted a bike. We own a Salon, and she was envisioning me in a stereotyped 'costume' riding around. Yeah, not so much. I wear the same clothes on my bike that I do off my bike. With the exception of my jacket which is a plain black leather jacket I bought for safety reasons more than anything else. I wear boots most of the time anyway, so.
Unfortunately my sister is one who wears HD from head to foot and doesnt even ride or own a bike. (well, she bought a V-rod which sat in the garage until her hubby told her to ride it or sell it, she rode it 2x, sold it) Shes one of those who buys a HD and a big HD sticker for the back window of her truck and then drive's the truck around. She is totally disgusted that I bought a Yamaha instead of a HD. Whatever....she can kiss my whole entire a$$. sorry,off topic.hehe

And "NO", I didn't photo-shop out the oil slick out of the water, somebody else must have.

Good point, made me think and here you go !

Bikers Leather:

comes in black or brown.
protects very well if you hit the road without the bike.
provides warmth.
Vests, Provides places for pins and patches.
Boots, protects your feet. provides firm solid object when kicking
cage idiots doors.
Sets the biker image to those not part of the scene.
Looks cool most of the time.
Chaps, hard to put on for some.

Boaters clothing, swim suits.
Don't need protection from road rash.
Low chance of getting hit by another boat.
Helps with the sun tan.
looks cool/sexy sometimes lol!
provides no warmth.
easy to put on/off.

Now think about the other sport dressups/downs.
Tennis players.
Football players.
Bowlers. special shoes !

I bet we could go much farther here !.


07 Stratoliner S with MS Batwing, MS lowers, Buck lowers, custom large trunk rack, King tourpack trunk, air horn, See me Now tail light and headlight pulser mods. Led lighting all over. Night rider tail light setup on the trunk.

BEING is not about what you wear but BEING who you are. I am a human, I wear human clothes, not dog collars or cow bells. We are not what we wear but some people think that if they wear it, it will come. I have no idea what it is
or what it might look like but I do know this, If it hit me in my A$$ I wouuld not like it at all.

My feet on the pegs and lots of time to go where the road leads.
