Snubbed by a VN 750

Out for a ride in the country side last night. While going down the road I saw a VN 750 waiting at the intersection to turn onto my road. I waved and then pulled over on the side of the road, flashers on, and waited for him. He just drove right by. I thought we could have a new member here.. Never saw the bike before.

Maybe we can all believe that he just didnt have the time. He could have been running late and needed to be somewhere. Or was having a real bad day.

Nope, I don't snub Harleys or anything on 2 wheels. In fact, a Harley rider probably would have stopped to see if I needed help. We don't get snubbed very much around here lol.

Heh...

Reminds me of back in the late 70's, my gf/now wife were riding my Suzuki 185 enduro through a local park....about 50 "Angels" came up the other way....I rode with them years later...but about half of them gave me the "fist up" sign, which back then meant "ride on dude"....
Snubs nowadays, IMO are just idiots trying to act like badasses. They snub ya, flash em the bird. Probably some doctor or lawyer anyway....losers....
Ride in, have fun....screw the others.....

Yep, most doctors or lawyers are losers. Million dollar homes, BMW 900 series autos, vacations in south sea islands to Europe, hot young wives.

Losers.

Just because some rider don't wave is no reason to flip them off, you are just showing the fact that you are indeed not their "brother".

You are just perpetuating the image of bikers being social misfits. Thanks.
