Don't dentists and lawyers ride something practical like a BMW and wear Aerostitch suits? Why would they go to Sturgis?

Re: Wow... the sportster Iron 883 sucks

Bike bashing is stupid. There are plenty of stupid people that think the SV650 sucks. It's all relative. You can nitpick any bike, any manufacturer. Also there are idiots that ride every style of bike. Are Harley's over-priced for what they are? Probably. But the reliability thing is SO WAY overplayed it's not even ridiculous anymore. And the lifestyle blahty blah BS... I have friends that have Harleys and they don't dress like Pirates, also they are cool people. If I had the cash I'd have a Nightster or 48. I'd also have a Ducati or two. Probably a Triumph. Definitely a Honda.

Geez, I might even put up with that chin to have as many bikes as Jay Leno... lol

I see what you are saying. They go there to provide free dental check-ups as part of their charity work.

No those people are engineers who are amazed by the level of over-engineering BMW puts into every otherwise simple mechanism on their vehicles, engineers or msf instructors, every msf instructor in this state owns a beemer, except for our newest one, he rides a busa or one of his two goldwings.

As a computer engineer (the guys who bridge electrical engineering [hardware] with computer science [software]), I have to agree with you. Even though my actual job has nothing to do with CompE, I still pour over every high level MC article about the electronics on the new 1k's like the S1000RR.
