Rice Burner

Post by bags123 » Fri Aug 23, 2013 8:13 am




Rice Burner

Harleys are for goobers
who like to spend their dough
Antiquated, leaking hulks
A dilemma just for show

If you ask any biker
who's really worth his salt
He'll make no lame excuses
for the "Kawi" that he bought

"Thats a nice rice burner"
say all the Harley louts
Condescending snickerings
to mask their own self doubt

So listen Mr. Harley,
you live in your wet dream
The earth is round, but you're still square
deluded , screwed, and reemed

Thirty grand for garbage
which bears the Harley seal
Imaginary manhood
Metallic sex appeal

Next time your Harley fails you
smoke and oils all you'll see
I'll wave as I ride past you
Rice burns real nice for me.

Hey, leave the Harleys alone. They haven't done anything to you. Besides I'd rather hear the roar of an engine than something that sounds like a wasp's nest trapped in a dryer let alone looks like the Batman version of a ten speed bike. By the way, I'm surprised you didn't take a cheap shot at the Chopper folks.

Bikes have come a long way since my snortin Norton days (750 Commando).

LS should know that lots of ricer and euro bikes are tuned to be loud, just like HDs and that ringadingding was only true of the 55 cc bikes of long ago and most ricers will out perform a Harley in any sort of racing. HDs are heavy cruisers with 50 year old push rod technology. That said, people are furiously loyal to the brand like many in my family. Some of the riders I've known can't carry on a conversation beyond how drunk or wasted they got last night and don't get me started on my American rels who seem to think a Harley is the jingoistic flag on wheels equivalent of being in the marine core.

Most Harley riders are over 40 and that's why I call them Viagra cowboys while many of the Yamaha/Kawasaki riders ride crotch rockets earning the title 'organ donor' and don't forget the BMW biker who often looks like a banker with a skull bucket. If you want to ride a real crap bike get a Ducati although many of the Italians swear by them.

Such rivalry should be taken for what it is and looking over at what's between the other guys legs is a dicey perhaps even prurient business.

Hold up, did you just diss my Italian cousins... What the hell E.T, I don't make fun of your Mounties. I mean I know my cousins aren't that bright but come on... I mean really what the hell man.... :no: :no: :no:

By the way Harleys aren't meant for racing, they are meant for riding the open road and cruising... Life is too damn short to be racing by on it on a wasp bike.

Sorry but the Ducati gets more mechanical down time then Harleys do and that's saying something. What's the point of having your bike in the shop as much as it is on the road. Yes the Harley is a heavy cruiser as I mentioned but even Honda with its Gold Wing will need less on road maintenance than a HD equivalent and they come pretty much with all the bells and whistles including heated handles, satellite stereo and nice trailer packages. Talk about crusin in comfort.

Btw, you can diss the Mounties as much as you like. It's a para-military force that kills and maims more civilians every year than the H.A.'s and every other outlaw biker club combined/ Mounties suck. I and most Canadians prefer local policing/ Think Mexican Federales with funny pants and hats...that's the RCMP.

I was talking about the RCMP... :roll: See here in the U.S. some of us refer to the RCMP as Mounties. Actually there's a limerick written on a bathroom stall in a pub somewhere in Minnesota that explains it, I do believe. :hello:

By the way, I already said that my Italian cousins aren't the brightest... Geez.. But give them some credit at least they tried to build a bike..Granted, it's looks like something a bunch of mental patients put together in a mechanics class but still. :shrug:

Hey,...to each their own. I loved the old British bikes, Nortons, Vincents, and BSA's. Very hard to find nowadays unless you're willing to pay an arm and a leg.
Then you'd have to scavenge the internet for parts just to make them run again. Back in the old days they were known as "café racers' ,....not sure why.
All the mods were into scooters, and rockers into the old racers. Growing up I had a friend with a BSA. At the time,....it was one of the best out there. Nowadays,....personally,....unless you want to pay the big bucks for a BMW,.....the jap bikes are kings of the road. Harleys developed prostrate problems
and now can't even get it up. :thewave:
