Because they may have just bought it.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

you must not have been looking. They were everywhere saturday. And you ask why... because they are losers and want everyone to know they really have a motorcycle. These are the same people that hang out at streets of woodfield and downtown naperville and drive to hooters in there car wearing there motorcycle jacket.

Depends on the leather. I have riding jackets and I have normal jackets that just happen to have a Harley logo.

I have no answer to this question, but I do often see 'douche bags' wearing their motorcycle jackets in the winter into stores and restaurants.
Another thing is....these 'douche bags' that I do see wearing their jackets when not riding a bike, do not wear them when they ride!!!

i think i can get the mower faster, but i gotta install bearing in the wheels instead of them rolling on a steel bolt.

K&N air filter, and took off the pull starter and any other plastic items that it doesnt need to save weight.

its a bump start now with 3 forward speed settings.

I was with a guy at the show, 50 something rider, that wore his ducati touring jacket. I called him on it, he said he wears it all the time, it's comfortable and warm, with lots of pockets. This is a parka style jacket though, mid length. The guys with the tight track style leathers on I don't understand.

Haha, that's great! I don't have a lawn to mow, but when I go to the mall, I wear my Icon leather jacket and see how many 15 year old girls I can pick up at the front entrance while they're waiting for their moms to pick them up. Even in the winter.

Well, Tony is right loosen up.. I was a Jacket / Vest squid on Saturday & Sunday....

1. Because I didnt coat check my Sportbike jacket that I brought on Saturday because, I wanted to get a honda patched sewed on at a booth, and didnt want to carry the damn thing so I wore it. (Squid)

2. I bought a leather vest for the new cruiser (Harley) and had some work done on it as well, and again wore it out cause hands were full with other shit. (Squid)

I mean damn all of us are there enjoying the same sport we all love (2Wheels) we cant eben cut our own a break at our own event.. Why so much hatin going on!!!!!

Enjoy life it is too damn short..........

Life's Journey Is Not To Arrive At The Grave Safely In A Well Preserved Body, But Rather To Skid In Sideways, Totally Worn Out, Shouting "HOLY SHIT... What A Ride!"

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

Your options are really quite limitless here, Ken - The first of which IMHO would be better springs - I beleive HR has just the thing - Second would be a nice Cold Air Intake for those hot muggy days - Third come the debate of Turbo or Supercharger (both good choices but personal pref plays a role) and last but not least, the Fetzer Valves can shave seconds if adjusted properly

I don't see the big deal. It's a bike show, for goodness sakes. If people want to wear bike gear with no bike it is dorky, but so are a lot of things people do. It's not something I'm going to worry about.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
