Anti-Social Bike Buddies

Posted on Thu, Sep 2, 2010 at 10:10 PM

Hey you.

Yeah. All you Harley riders.

Stop being so anti-social.

Riding motorcycles is a fraternity and a brotherhood. Not an elitist snobby ivy league cult.

I ride a Supersport R6. It is my bike of choice. I like it because it looks nice, handles great, and has lots of power. I'm sure you like your bike for the exact same reason. How are we that different?

Everyone else on a bike waves. What makes you so fucking elitist and special that you can't throw a hand out and acknowledge the people that acknowledge you?

When I come up behind you in traffic, don't be a douche-bag and ride in the center lane so I can't ride the other lane position. Who the fuck taught you to ride? I'm pretty sure I got my license from the same place that you did.

Come to think of it. I'm sure that I'M a safer rider than ANY of you. Superbike riders don't give motorcycles a bad name. Asshole Harley riders do.

In the end we're just people, in this brotherhood of bikes. Out for a ride on a nice day.

Skullbucket, full face helmet, leather jacket, or a hoodie and backpack, it makes no difference.

You ruin the experience for the rest of us you dicks. So man up. Stop being anti-social, and throw a wave the next time we pass each other.

Maybe your day will be a bit better for it. —Friendly Average Biker
