I haven't gone very far, I am pretty much a solo rider, but I love cruising around town styling and profiling with my 2003 VTX 1300. It is a beautiful bike and I love showing it off. I know many other riders feel the same. What is it with bikes? I have had some nice cars, but I never just showcased them. Cars are good transportation, but a pretty bike is so much more. I love looking at pretty bikes (mine or otherwise). Any thoughts on why we tend to raise our bikes above any other type of transportation?
