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.

I say simply "CVO Ultra". It is what it is, and that ain't bragging

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.
