Not for nothing... I've met equally as many dicks on sport bikes than I have on cruisers. Especially those with SS's. I think people underestimate how many cocky fuckhead late teenagers and early 20 year old kids ride crazy big SS's and act like douches.

This.

Granted, I am a fuckhead 20 year old on an SS, but there's a reason why I tend not to ride with other sport bike riders.

That said, there are very few sport riders around here that I've met who I would even consider riding with.

And I'm a 21 year old fuckhead, but not an SS, as of now anyway. Stereotypes go all different ways. Some are more often than not true, which make them regarded in nearly every situation. Sportbike riders always get a bad rep, and I would say even though I've met quite a few that I thought were good guys (and ride with one regularly), the majority of them ARE dicks, ARE selfish and everything else.

I do not believe most cruiser riders, harley guys or the like are standoffish and dicks. I think that stereotype is off. A stereotype of those guys I do believe however is that they are all 40,50,60 somethings that are not scary at all and are just like your dad and my dad trying to go out on a nice day. That's really all most of them are, take aside the few Harley gangs and losers like that.

I don't know where you're from, but around here, it's the complete opposite minus the age thing.

Most harley/chopper/cruiser riders around here are bar-hopping fools who play dress up on the weekends and can barely hold down a job.

There are squids too of course, but they only ride in summer. Most of the riders I see now are commuters like me, trying to have a littke bit of fun, and saving some money on gas. On weekends all the tools get their bikes out to meet at sbucks or the bar.

Still, if you're truly uncomfortable and are in good health/injury free you're doing something wrong. I can see some out of shape fool or cripled fuck being uncomfortable I suppose.
So I'm either a crippled fuck or an out of shape fool because I disagree with you?

Of course I'm generalizing from a single example here, but everyone does that. At least I do.

You admitted to being a crippled fuck.

The point is, no one in good health should be uncomfortable on a sportbike. If you're uncomfortable you're;
A. Doing it wrong
B. Out of shape
C. Injured
