I met a guy like that a few weeks back at a gas station, I was in my truck and he was on his bike. He had a 1300R (C rear fender & wheels) and did all this praising of his bike and if he didn't have it on his bike it was stupid to have: beetle bags, floorboards, R rear fender. He had a outer fairing on the bike, I told him I was putting a full fairing on mine, he says that's not right because radios aren't meant to be on bikes. He approached me that night at bike night, he looked over my bike and I just kept talking to HD guys who were complimenting the bike.

You're right, there are BS'ers riding on X's just like there are some riding on HDs or any other brand of bikes.

Yeah, I guess fools ride all brands of bikes.

I got to say, though, I was at the local Harley shop a couple days ago (it is on the route home), and the folks who run it are extremely nice. Once, when I got caught in an unexpected T-Storm, I pulled in and they insisted I get the VTX under cover of their canopy off the dealership building, next to their outside display. They gave me free coffee and snacks, and were just very kind people. Even like to trade stories about my VTX and their bikes, with no sneering.

The classic RUB / Weekend rider / Bar stool rider. The kind you find ( in shorts and flip flops) hidding under a bridge instead of riding in the rain.
