Actually, what you experience is precisely what non-HD riders experience here in the States, as well.

hmm so built-in superior factor works for HD owners in the US as well. Reminds of what we said in my youth: get a Mercedes-Benz it has built-in right of way....

Derchef et all are quite correct about HD riders, their inferiority complex translates into a superiority attitude in order to compensate. The reverse is true of riders of other brands towards HD riders. I'm in both worlds and find it fascinating to watch human nature in the mc world imitating what happens in our politics and religious strife. It's our caveman/clan mentality playing out in the mc world.
By the way, my comments were only directed at the oil leaking posts. Oh... white color Tigers are faster than the rest. :492:

Well Chico, I do not know you personally but in most cases I completely agree with what you post. Your comment on white Tigers finds my 200% support.

From my personal experience Triumph Tiger owners are less cavemen than others we even allow BMWs to lead a tour on Megameet ride outs  :062:

Actually, what you experience is precisely what non-HD riders experience here in the States, as well. What's worse, is the regularly confirmed stereotype. You see, helmets are not required in Texas, and not only will an HD rider not acknowledge you, but their noses will be turned up with their backwards ball cap, sunglasses and HD T-shirt; it never fails.

To each his own.  :027:
I don't see HD folks not acknowledge Enduro's they seem to accept them more than crotch rockets, IMO

As a rider of both genres, my experience so far has been a mixed bag. In fact, I doubt any of them even understand what it is theyre looking at when they see me on the Tiger. These ADV bikes are a bit foreign to the central Texas motorcycle scene. Betcha if I had on a t-shirt and backwards ball cap, theyd recreate the shrimp boat scene from Forrest Gump, though.

...just sayin  :002:

I believe we also like Bonneville Bobbers. Does that make us kindred spirits?
