I have two brothers that recently got rid of their Honda VTX's and moved to HD baggers of some sort. My older brother in particular used to ride on weekends with his buddies but now that he has his HD he is in a much larger social group and seemingly out of nowhere has an infinite supply of HD t-shirts. I think a lot of the HD culture is silly but there is no denying it is a tight social group and you probably meet some really cool people along with a few dopes now and then. For my part I've never loved or hated HD's or most cruisers, they were just there and never really got my attention but then I've always liked the weird or less common kind of things, my first bike was a 250cc Honda scooter. The most mainstream bike I've owned was a 2012 Kawasaki Ninja 650. I have taken a few HD's on test rides at various rallies at they definitely have their charm and character but the one that had me seriously considering being an owner is probably the oddest duck in their line-up, the HD Sportster Roadster. It's not fast, handling is peculiar and that funny peanut tank leaves you nowhere to lock your knees which is kinda necessary on a cafe style bike. But, it's buckets of fun to ride and push to it's limits, which come pretty quickly. I recently rode this one back to back with a Scout and the Indian is a far better engineered machine but I had way more fun on the Roadster. Go figure.
