Title: When someone asks what type of bike you rider, what's your answer?
Post by: jamm on March 08, 2014, 01:18:52 PM

Probably a stupid question but...I'm new to touring bikes as well as owning a H-D and probably look that way when I go into a dealer store.  When I'm at a dealer and they ask me what I ride as a general conversation topic it's a mouthful to say a 2010 FLHTCUSE5 or say a CVO Screamin’ Eagle Ultra Classic Electra Glide, so my question is; what does everyone say that doesn't sound like your an idiot or bragging?  Or am I destined to sound like a douche every time someone asks?

If the person you talking to knows alot about H-D then say FLHTCUSE5, if they don't know sheeet then just say TOURING model or a ULTRA CLASSIC.

If I'm wearing something that says HD on it and I think the questioner is asking because of that, I say a CVO Wide Glide.

If I'm wearing bibs and cleated shoes, I say Colnago.

If it's general conversation, I say a Harley.

Well, if it's a legit question like "What do you ride?", I say a Screamin' Eagle OR CVO Street Glide.

If it's one of dem "zat a Harley?" questions while they are staring right at it with Harley-Davidson on every piece of the bike.  I say nope, it's a Honda.  Fooled ya, didn't it  :huepfenlol2: :huepfenlol2: ;D :apple: :zroflmao: :zroflmao: :zroflmao:

Title: Re: When someone asks what type of bike you rider, what's your answer?
Post by: MrSurly on May 21, 2014, 03:50:48 PM
I usually answer based somewhat on context; away from the bike, casual questioner, "Harley".

Away from the bike, to a rider, "an Ultra"

To anyone in a HD shirt, "CVO Ultra" (not to boast, just respecting their level of knowledge)

On the bike, the questions are usually either from a total noob "What is it?" "Harley Ultra"

or familiars wanting specifics "What model is that?" "2010 CVO "

Now, to the parts guy, it's usually..."2010 CVO Ultra...Yes...OK..F-L-H-T-C-U-S-E-5. What?, Yes. They DID make one in '10.... here, lemme see your book..."

Sometimes I say Harley, if the person asking doesn't know anything much about bikes.

If they know a little about bikes I say Bagger. Or Dresser. Or Touring bike. 

If they do know bikes I say CVO Ultra or Screamin' Eagle Ultra, even though HD says it's a CVO Limited.

If they ride a Yamaha Roadstar (or similar) then I get to listen to how somebody just the other day complimented them on their Harley, because their Roadstar (or whatever) looks just like a Harley.  Then they wait for my response.  And wait.  And wait.  Then they say something like, well I woulda got a Harley, but my Roadstar/whatever was a lot less $$ than a Harley.

I was in a biker bar Sunday.  About 25 bikes parked outside.

I got asked which bike I was riding by some old bikers.

I said "The candy cherry ultra".

Reply:  "The 110. We were just admiring that bike."

If you say FLHTCUSE2 you'll lose very knowledgeable bikers that could take apart and reassemble the bike blindfolded.  LOL!

Anything past FLHT is ancillary.  Everything else is accessories.  ;)

I tell 'em, It's a Harley!
And end the conversation with,
"You can buy better, but you won't pay more!!"
Then I walk away and leave them with that goofy look on their face.

I love this quote but to answer your question my go to is " a CVO Ultra" in your case. In my case a CVO Road Glide and so on. Any one worth talking to will get it. If they need more you can give them more. Keep it simple or mess with em big time when you get the chance!

Had another one of those standing at the gas pump minding my own business moments when a guy on a Yamaha cruiser walks over to my bike & says - Nice Harley.  I say - Yeah, thanks.  Then he proceeds to tell me about people that mistake his bike for a Harley, how he did this or that to make it look more like a Harley, & how it sounds almost exactly like a Harley, etc. etc. etc.  I smile & say - That's nice. He fires up & rides off.  It doesn't & it didn't.
