When he saw the BMW he blew up!! "Je**s Ch***t, you bought a G*D*MN Kraut motorcycle" "What the hell's wrong with riding a Harley?",

I only infer this from reading Brit Bike Mags. But I would like to hear from you Europeans on this. In the US the market is dominated by Harleys and if you don't ride a Harley you ride a crotch rocket (or Goldwing), and so people are at a loss to classify you, which is the best part of it.

Whether I'm riding my HD or BMW, most non-riders will typically ask how fast the bike will go or how much it cost. Then they'll sometimes tell a story about a friend who seriously injured himself on a motorcycle.
