    Most Harley owners aren't riding around at 160 mph trying to pop wheelies either. :dunno:

    In my area, only about 10% of harley riders even wear helmets... Of those, about 75% of them wear the beanie types that don't offer much protection anyway... I saw the after math of a harley accident while I was out jogging a while back. It was a simple low speed get off, but the helmetless rider hit his head on the pavement, and was pretty much brain dead... If he was wearing a helmet, he would have gotten up and been hurting from a little road rash, and pissed that his $20k bike was torn up... But, he had to look cool by riding w/out a helmet, and it now likely either dead or a vegetable...

    Doesn't matter... I'd rather crash at 100 mph wearing full gear, than at 25 mph wearing NO gear...

    Like I have posted before, they brought a guy into trauma the other day that had been in a relatively low speed bike accident (he was on a scooter with another guy on the back and as gay as that is, he couldn't have been going over 25mph or so). The guy had had a displaced fracture in his temporal bone, meaning that the bone was actually pushed into his skull about a centimeter and a half. The guy on the back was wearing a helmet and had a broken radius. Which would you choose?

    Most Harley owners don't try to do wheelies/stoppies or drag their kness...Hence the term "cruiser"...

    Troof. Around here most of the crotch rocket guys have some sort of gear on, even though it's hot. The Harley riders are all leather vest and nothing else.

    one of my supervisors recently bought a Road King. He keeps his helmet in the saddle bag at all times :mamoru:

    How bout you edit that list with no helmet. Fuckers are all about the image, not pure riding enthusiasts. Now yes I am generalizing, but after talking to a local wrecker, which saw 5 motorcycle deaths in the span of 3 days and all of them were Harley riders with no helmets, it becomes pretty easy to generalize.

    I also love when they go on a "cruise" but prior to "cruising" they cart their bike on the back of a truck for the majority of the "cruise" to the place where they can then "ride"... :ugh:

    Not riding enthusiasts? :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    ...and trailering your bike is fine for long trips when you need to get there without taking lots of pit stops...Ever try riding 18 hours to the middle of no where North Dakota? You will get there and not be able to enjoy the ride while you are there...and I hope you don't have to be back at work Monday...

    Again reread my statement. I stated I was generalizing. I'm stating that having a Harley has become such an image based fad, that those who are the true enthusiasts are getting outweighed by the douchey minority. Those that wear full leather outfits with Harley symbols all over them, but forget to put a helmet on.

    But when you buy a Harley you just aren't buying the bike you're buying the lifestyle....
