Default Why do sportbike riders diss Harleys?

I got into a motorcycle discussion on a Toyota Tacoma forum with some sportbike and crotch rocket riders. They hate Harley's and Harley riders. They talked about how Harleys "rattle apart" and how they make no horsepower. How they are over priced and that people only buy them for show and status and Harley riders are not real riders. So what gives? Why all the hate out there for Harleys? Ive owned Jap bikes as well as 3 Harleys and by far my Harley is more fun to ride and I have not had any mechanical problems with my 3 Harleys. Sure they dont make the horsepower that a Yamaha R1 makes but thats not what they are intended for.

Why do cats and dogs fight?
Answer- they are different and don't like each other.

They don't really hate Harleys & their riders. Most of them secretly hope to have a nice Harley when they grow up.

You want to know what's really funny? I'm on a couple different car forums and what I find hilarious is some of the so called car guys (American Muscle) laugh at Honda civics with fart can exhausts,laugh at their wings. You know what I mean they make fun of the Fast & Furious types. But yet they are some of the first to ride Jap scrap. Even though most dress like SQUIDs,mohawks on the helmet,the whole power ranger thing going on. The exact kind of person that would drive a Honda civic,lol. I'm a real car guy too. I like my American muscle and my Harleys,but I still don't look my nose down on another guys choice of bike,it's just not for me.

It's not just the fact that they ride Japanese bikes. It's the fact they slam Harleys,I mean call them American boat anchors,POS,unreliable vibrating turds. See the irony? The same thing they love about muscle cars,they despise in Harleys.

Have you ever met any that have rode 500 miles a day for two weeks? Probably not. 500 in a day? Probably not.

Sport bikes and HD are polar opposites with entirely different goals, functions and missions.

They do have a better chance if they decide to run from a cop though.
