All depends on your level of snobbery I suppose.

I would say, there is no way i can invite him to my place and have a glass of wine and talk about art history.

You dont have to defend when you have nothing to defend bro. We all just know, its a "Blue Collar Sport" -

Has anyone ever, ever seen a decent person riding a harley?
Right off the top of my head I can think of the General Manager of the local Benz dealer, the Jag dealer, the minister of the largest megachurch in town [Six Flags over Jesus], a couple of family doctors, my mechanic who was with Brumos Porsche until opening his own shop 30 years ago, horse trainer Nick Zito.

I ride a 04 GSXR1000 but the ride of the HD is not bad now. The V-Rod is VERY nice.

Really, Americans are still driving garbage trucks? The man deserves a commendation! Many of my musician friends have bikes. If they have only one, it's usually a Harley.

All the time. Has anyone ever, ever seen a decent person who puts others down because of how they look or what they drive? There's a word for that, isn't there?

That just goes hand n hand. Perhaps you are like them too? Besides, how come you say noone is ever judgemental of others? You have never been judgemental in your life?

Please.

If i was given a pair of Nike and a Harley. I wont take either.

Yes, I have. It is a character flaw that I have worked toward eliminating, rather than embracing. If you're trying to feel better about yourself, putting down others is really not the best path toward that end...
