  • fartley fest here in milwaukee

    so, i was out of town visiting my girlfriend in portland oregon, and i come back to my home town, with the sound of ten bazillion fart machines pooping up the freeways. idiots on harleys clogging up our freeways, and nearly causing two accidents on the way back home today. good thing i am a biker, cause i wouldnt want a fartley scratching the paint on my mustang. well, i rather would have been on my tls, but its kinda hard to carry my dog and do balance point wheelies while passing the drag piped poopmachines. just on a rant here, thats all. at least they are bringing revenue into wisconsin. another poopy thing is that all the gas stations have raised thier prices 12-15 cents just for fart fest 20003 - 100 years of oil stains on the driveway.

    The longer those old farts keep by those Harleys the longer the price of good used sportbikes will stay low. TLS best bang for the buck on the road.

        have you noticed that they won't wave back. I know I ride a sport bike but I throw a hand out to any other biker, regardless of make/model, just to say hi. But I've started to notice here that the harley riders think they are better than everybody else.

        Sometime I want to just ride up right next to them, reach out and slap the kill switch and then ride off. That might be fun, no?

          Just got back frow the Wednesday night sportbike ride here...about 75 bikes including 6 TLRs. We rode about 50miles throughout the city---which is of course crawling with overpiped underpowered Hardleys.

          The vast majority of the packs of harleys we drove by would wave back or exchange revs or honks...Its just Billy-badass on the chopper who can barely reach the six foot high handlebars who is just too cool to acknowledge "crotchrockets"

              In upstate NY all the Harley guys are suits that are posing for their friends but they rarely wave.

                Forgot to say I saw a guy on his Hardly the other day on my way back to work and he was trying to race I think? anyway his handlebars were litteraly like half the wheel of a big rig and his legs were out on his lazyboy. his brain bucket (half helmet) was his only protection besides his shorts and tshirt. Anyway the funny part was his face was litteraly flapping in the wind it was funny then it was just gross. I was perfectly protected in my riding gear and wind protected by my full face and windscreen.

                LOOK FOR THE FLAPPING IT IS WIERD!!!!!!!!

                  They came thru town here last sunday. I past about 100 of them on the way home from my morning ride and about 3 of the 100 waved back at me. I wave at every bike no matter what. Cant stand any group of riders or rides that only allow one type of bike. Hardley's are ok but about 90% of the people on them are dicks and arent real riders anyway.

                    I like the harley guys here in town...I think it is a few bad apples that ruin the bunch.

                    IMO it seems like the Goldwing dudes are the ones that don't ever wave...I haven't figured out if it is that they are stuck up, or just asleep as the bike does everything for them...
                    If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

                      Don't get many Harley riders over here waving back, snowball effect, none wave, not that it bothers me, so no-one waves to them.

                      Although there are plenty of latte riders on sportsbikes that wont acknowledge anyone but themselves. (I think they are too busy looking at themseleves in the shop windows as they ride to notice anyone else. )

                        Our fair city is famous for the CEO Harley guys - They all meet @ some kinda 55 yr and up steak joint and ride down a block, park and go to the next 55 yr + steak joint I have rode with a few that are cool (the ones that were on the ride when I went down) but I tell them they need gear and no more "High-Balls" and they just laugh.

                        Thinkin of headin up to Wisc for the fest but not sure if the "Rice Rockets" are too welcome

                            I was riding along 101 down here in SD yesterday and I got some waves from hardly riders, but most of them were too busy trying to be bad ass to wave back. I did however get a bunch of waves from motorcycle cops which was cool.
                            Why yes I am a jackass, thank you.

                              Same thing here.. Some are ok some not.. just like us sportbikers.

                              Dover! That's funny.. One of my tricks on my riding buddies was to pull up next to them at a stoplight, reach over to the key and quicly turn off the bike, pull the key and toss it to the side of the road. Generally works best when you know when the light changes, so you can make a quick getaway. (ok.. I only did it once, but I have hit the kill switch at a few stoplights though!)
