I guess I'm just a magnet for ass-hats. My wife and I were invited to a neighbors birthday party last night. Nothing huge, just a gathering a friends and neighbors to celebrate his 40th b-day. As the evening progressed this guy(still have no clue who he was) comes up to me and asks what I ride (had my HD ball-cap on). I told him" '06 Sportster." Then it started. "Man, I couldn't ride one of them, too small, too slow, not comfortable, not comfortable with my ol' lady on, I gotta have a big bike. I put on way too many miles to do it on a sporty." Really, I asked, how many miles would that be? "Oh about 7000 a year." At this point I couldn't help myself, I started laughing. He asks, "What's so funny?" When I told him that he was about a third of the way to the miles I put on in a year I was hoping he would just STFU and leave me alone. Nope, wasn't gonna get that lucky. His story then turned into, "Well, mines a collectors bike so I don't want to put too many miles on it." My interest was kind of renewed with that statement. I'm thinkin' maybe an old knuck or pan so I set myself up. "Really? What is it?" He then proceeded to tell how rare and collectible his '09 Wideglide is. Ass-hat.
Just when you thought it would end, he starts with a whole new story line starting with, "I have a dilemma." Now having been drinking for a couple hours, I figure what the hell, I could use some more entertainment. He then starts with his dilemma of 2, 1% MC's that want him to patch in. One is an MC on his wife's side that within the next 3-4 years is going to patch over to H.A. The other is the dominant for our area that his dad has been a member of since he can remember. Really, I ask, which would be who? He says SOA. I couldn't fucking believe he actually said SOA. Just to be sure he wasn't meaning something else I asked,"Seriously! Sons of Anarchy?" He said, "yup, quite the dilemma huh" Time for me to go home, as I'm leaving he puts the icing on the cake and says, "Later Bro!" I really wanted to just turn around and punch the guy, but out of respect for the others there and my neighbor that threw the party I just kept walkin'. Fuckin' ass-hats!
