There is a reason why the whole " cruiser " thing has gone from strength to strength, the cruiser set tend to get together in a group & go riding to a destination and socialize, not all cruisers are Harley's, there are a lot of metric cruisers out there as well, granted they handle like drunken walruses, and there seems to be a "wannabe biker" thing going on but hey to each his own right ?, and yes there are some real badass's that ride Harley's but there are bad people in all social groups, investors in suits that steal old peoples money are not as easy to spot as a 6'4" gorilla with a beard most of us could only dream of. Most gang type dudes I ever met really just want to be left alone & the whole intimidating look thing is as much to keep people at a distance more than anything else. Don't get me wrong, they are in no way shape or form choir boys but it is easy inches for the press rather than unraveling a string of lies from a smooth talking lawyer/ investment broker type. The sport bike boys get together to go riding fast, & if you are out on a deserted country road then while not ideal I can live with it, although track days are better, the whole screaming around the streets in traffic is just plain dangerous for both riders & everybody else in the blast zone. the "I don't give a f.... & "I'll do want I want & don't give a shit about anybody else" attitude portraits zero respect for all other road users, anybody can pull the trigger & go fast, the cemetery is full of them.
