I don't quite get how a culture that claims to be so devoted to freedom and in this case 'anarchy' can be so chauvinistic and sexist though..
Yup that's bikers Erske..
remember all the old biker movies ??? all men . biker gangs men again ..not that I want to join one.
EVERY single time I mention to a guy that I ride a Harley he says and I could have a tape ..."What do you ride , a Sporty"
A Sporty or Sportser is (usually) 883 cc - the smallest - though the pepiest of the Harleys.They don't want to see girls on the big bikes - the domain of guys.
I guess some people(men) are more free than others (woman )
Another thing that ALWAYS happens.If you are riding in a pack which is bound to happen .....
If there is a guy at the back on a sporty , everyone will say "Lets wait for _____ he is on a smaller bike.If it is a girl? She is at the back of the pack as she can't ride.
I never had a sporty so I never had this honor.
I do my own thing and try not to ride with assholes ( which is hard as you can't control everything) or I go into the zone .
Thats the way of the male dominated biker world - many of whom are not enlightened .
And Helmut - I have seen that T- shirt before. I am sure you did not even offend that guy.Maybe he didn't get it or just didn't care.That is why you cannot get angry at these events or it would never end-gotta just enjoy your little zen world of riding which is a gift in of itself .
