Them: What do you ride?   ???
Me:  A Screamin' Eagle Ultra.  ;D
Them:  Oh.  ???
Me:  It's a Harley.   ;D
Them:  OH!  Nice.  They're really expensive...like $20,000.   :-\
Me:  Mine was about $40,000 before I started adding things to it.   8)
Them:  I didn't know they were that much.  :o 
 :nixweiss: :coolblue: :2vrolijk_21:

 :2vrolijk_21: Don't know how many times I've had that conversation.

To answer the OP question, if I'm alone I say CVO Ultra, if Janet's with me I say Geezerglide (she hates that). ::)

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..."

To those that understand the lifestyle, I ride a CVO Ultra.  (FINALLY, after all these years!)  To the "experts", I ride a Dresser.  I like to see that stupid look come on their face, and they say "Uh, whats 'zat?"  LMAO!   ;)  Later--HUBBARD

If they know anything about Harley I say CVO Ultra,  If they no nothing I just try to educate them a little.

Andy would say "depends.....which day of the week?".   He's the only guy I know that has a different CVO for a every day of the week.   Why do you think his avatar is so confused?  :P
