Bob,

Here the HD rider always wave, or at least most of the time. But they DO display that attitude you speak of when face to face. They won't say much if anything to you if you pull up on a triumph, and to top it off they almost break their necks trying to turn away as fast as possible because they seem to be deathly scared of letting you see them looking at your bike. It might mean your bike is better or nicer ! What gets me is the Tbird is a rare and highly praised machine that should make it extremely interesting to see. I know if i were on any other bike and a Tbird pulled up i'd be so curious i wouldn't be able to get over there fast enough. Yet they act like it's a honda civic. Thats part of the HD attitude and why people always dump all over HD riders.
