Why are most IL Harley riders a** holes?

In California as long as your on 2 wheels everything is good but here in IL the only time I can get a response while riding is by someone on a jap bike (cruiser or sportbike). All the Harley riders pretty much ignore or flip the bird at me while riding. What's up with that shit? I almost turned around and kicked him off his bike.

If you happen to be wearing a helmet they assume your on a jap bike and discount you before they even see the bike.

Haha I used to get the same thing and had a if they didn't wave back, but then I stopped caring and got used to it.

Yeah for some reason it's a hate thing. It will never end. For what it's worth I wave to all and had a few sportbike guys wave to me on the Harley and I wave back.

Most are stupid around here.
This is what I've noticed after 25 years of riding.

Sportbikers wave to sportbikers and not Harley's
Harley guys usually wave to over Harley guys or pointing out something is rattling off there bike. Lol but usually not to sportbikers.

Euro and usually waves and will usually get a wave back from anyone.

Golding riders are excepted by all minds. (maybe its cause just old fucks ride them. ) lol

Mine rattles WAY to much to let go just to wave at some choad going by me

Plus, I ALWAYS seem to get a wave when I am shifting, on ANY bike then it's like FUCK, he must think I am a dick - Then less thana second goes by and I think "Fuck 'em, who cares"

Yep...goes both ways.

And you must have a small sample size so far, because in general everyone waves to everyone.

Yea, I feel like most Harley guys will not proactively wave but if I wave first they will almost always wave back. Maybe if I get a leather American flag vest and chaps they will like me more?

I rode year round out there. I moved to IL last season but didnt have my bike here until November. Sold it. Bought my 2006. and have been riding since mid February every day to and from work. I just dont know very many people to ride with. I guess I probably look like a prick who hates everyone riding all alone.

I read an article that was telling how no one in Europe waves because they think its foolish to take your hands off what controls the bike. The writer was from the states and at first thought they were all rude until someone filled him in. I wave but if I don't get one back oh well.

You wanna see my itinerary?

So you don't get a wave back really why does it matter. If they wave I do, if they dont I don't. Surely not going to lose sleep on it

It doesn't happen much close to the city go out to the northern burbs and they do all the time.

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .
