My A$$less chaps only go with my Harley.Oh come on that goes for all bikes.
Guy buys BMW GSA1200 and all the Klim gear won’t ride in rain.
Guy buys GSX R and full leather one piece suit
Guy buys CR250F plasters giant fox sticker on the back window of his truck
Guy buys triumph Boneville grows beard and man bun drinks craft beer
Its not just the Harley crowd
My problem is I’m going to look very confused riding to pick up my craft beer on my adv bike wearing my chaps and joe rocket leather and a fox Mx helmet
+1 for the BMWMOA. Their events are the most fun we ever had on two wheels. The finger lakes event was a blast. An offshoot of the association is the Airheads group. They would erect a huge tent and rent furniture to fill it along with big tv's.@Krime , see thats sort of funny. If you get a chance to attend a BMW rally, and they are all over the place in nicer weather you'll find very few doctors and lawyers. You'll find some odd cats , not saying there wont be a doctor or dentist but that one stereotype really is misplaced.
Performance you say?My bike is tall, dark and handsome. A perfect combination of good looks, quality performance and versatility.
I am one with my bike and my bike is an extension of me.
Yeah, I hear you and have experienced that to some degree. I think the stereotype is more around those that buy a brand new fully loaded GS and trade-in/replace every couple years. The price range of $35k+ OTD for a fully loaded brand new bike puts it out of reach to most except for those high income earners (including Doctors, dentists, CEOs, etc) – of course there's always an exception, myself included. I think it's part of why when I bought my bike at 30 y/o at BMW Toronto they didn't take me seriously with the small deposit I put on the bike. They likely assumed I'd walk from it. Even though I custom spec'd out the bike, they sent me a VIN of a bike that was fully loaded with options I didn't order (including the $500 Gear Shift Assist feature). When I picked the bike up, my sales guy assured me it was to my custom spec even though it was really one of the fully loaded dealer allocated bikes.@Krime , see thats sort of funny.

Like some of the Harley nonsense on here, I know 5 riders quite well. car sales manager 45 no tats, 60yr old health nut runs 10km every am, his 36yr old marketing manager son, also no tats, 50yr old gal, municipal worker, doesnt even have an HD T shirt. None fit the pirate persona.
