Went a bit North yesterday to the Big City. Had time to kill so dropped by the Hog Shop. Cruised around the store and all the high priced Signature HD Garb. Noted the Posers and the Oh so serious Leather clad macho "guys" all a bit comical as this is the highest priced HD Shop in Texas. Did a Test Ride on a couple of not so standard HD "street" V Twins. The leather guys gave me the Evil Eye when I came back from changing into my BILT Synthetic Duds with armor. BiLT Motorcycle Gear & Apparel - Cycle Gear. I guess they were too deaf from their potato twins they ride to hear that a storm was on the way. The first scooter did not fit and was more of a Urban (advertised) V Twin and I was back in a short short to see if we could Mod it out some, but the "Tech" was so cocky sure that the foot controls could not be F==ked with. Of course no tape measure with him so cool this ain't the only shopin' town. No problem the Parts and Shop missed out on some high dollar work @ 125 greenies an hour. I found a like V Twin with the fit that didn't cramp old injuries and walked out with a couple more grand than I figured. Just where do they find these young twerps that can't read a Yardstick? Some other clown with leather chaps sitting in a Lounge chair "figured that scoot is too small for any real road trip". I suggested he should have been along in 68 when I crossed the US Coast to Coast with all my gear during Winter on the northern route aka Route 66 during a mil transfer, some 300 lbs in all, on a 650 Triumph and never saw one Harley on the slick winter road. I guessed they were all feet up (TU) with broke down Hogs. Not to worry for my safety for Gwedo, a X Grunt I once helped was close by. Got to love a trip to the Hog Toy Store and the best are the ones are them that provide an itinerary of a place to hide when the bad weather hits.
