I got back into riding in 06 on a new xl1200c sportster, My wife hung up on me when I called from the triumph dealership. I quickly noticed a new trend since the 80's EVERYBODY WAVES!!! sporty sucked, I blew up the lowrider I traded it in for and finally got back on Triumph. Now not only does everybody wave but they all want to tell me stories too. Can't complain, but last month I traded my Triumph R3 for a 2012 k1600 gtl and all of the sudden cagers aren't the only ones that can't see me on the road anymore? Whats up? every now and then I catch a gold winger checkin' my ride from the corner of his eye but if I didn't know better i'd think beemers are shunned by other motorcyclists, We dress the same as we ever did that's not pirate or agate, Mrs wears a helmet. anybody?
