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.

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:

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..."

Harley  :nixweiss:

X4   Harley is my most given answer.

If you are actually talking to someone informed they will ask for more specifics.

It is my way of filtering out the less informed.

'11 Ultra Classic. I have always felt funny throwing the "CVO" part in there, don't really know why. If "CVO" comes up it usually gets me a strange look like I'm too good for the rest. I think I have been hanging out with the wrong people!

In a effort to solve to crappy seat dilemma, I picked up a stock seat from a 2015 Ultra Classic LOW that was removed at purchase and never used.. It did drop me down quite a bit I'm just hoping it doesn't move too far forward... Spring will tell. 

That should throw them off

Sometimes its Road Glide,

Sometimes its "Which one"?

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.

Been through most of the above situations and answers.  Had this one too.

To the airhead cashier girl who sees me in a helmet, with my bike at the #1 gas pump, right in front of her: 
Her: Which pump?
Me: #1
Her: Do you ride a bike?
Me: Yes.
Her: What kind is it?
Me: (Point at "Harley Davidson" on my shirt)
Her: (blank look)
