Maybe interesting to see a few MT350's parked next to a few Chrome Tractors?😀

You are a very recent MT owner and forum member.

There are MTRC members who own and ride both MTs and more traditional HDs- they often have other makes too

If you wish to alienate yourself by referring to other riders' bikes in derogatory terms, why not go to this event by yourself ?

The forum is a broad church and everyone is welcome but obnoxious, sneering members find themselves with few friends

For the record, I have owned bikes which are not MTs, but none of them have been traditional HDs, so I feel no personal insult

I have known a few of our members with the big Harleys who use an MT Harley as a winter bike , as the MT has no chrome to ruin on salted roads , good people . we all have our own tastes .

I genuinely find myself embarrassed to say to a “biker” that I have a Harley Davidson
Always I immediately feel the need to tell them it’s not a “Real Harley”
Just don’t get the Harley thing
I have and ride an eclectic collection of motorcycles and mopeds
Never felt the need to dress like a pirate and ride a chrome tractor
A real dress and tractor YES :shock:
A chrome one .... NO :D

Regarding HD , I was coincidentally watching TV program (Pawn Stars) today and someone came to the shop and wanted to sell a US military bike built in 1968 which was a joint venture between Aermacchi and HD. The engine casing has Harley Davidson on it. It looks more like a moped than a motorbike ! Apparently it was only made in small numbers over a few years
