Why are some cruiser riders so standoffish?
I've only been riding street bikes for about a year now, and it seems that a good chunk of the cruiser riders (mostly Harleys) I've encountered seem to act as though I don't deserve to ride on the same asphalt as them. I generally don't like to generalize.....wait, but sport bike riders seem to be more open minded and accepting of all riders, so why can't this be true for some of the cruiser dudes? It happens to me often it seems, where they won't wave back or they give me dirty looks at stop lights, I even had a guy on a chopper just stare at me when I said hello at a Panda Express. Don't get me wrong though, I've met plenty of people who ride cruisers that are some of the nicest people. Maybe it's just Vegas riders or something. It's not like I have a sticker on my bike that says f#$@ cruisers, and I try not to drive like a douche. Maybe I'm over thinking it, I just feel like we should all be like brothers (and sisters) out there, because we have the same love and deal with the same issues whenever we ride.
