Really doesnít bother me but Iíve never understood why they compliment it to me. I had nothing to do with the design of it.

Do I ever get tired of compliments...
Hell no! I keep my stuff clean and in good order, so it's somewhat of acknowledgment. I get complimented on my Triumph T100 quite a bit. Most think it's a restored older model. I get complimented on the drag car, mostly because it's different and super clean. A '65 Karmann Ghia that most are amazed that it runs as fast as it does while still being show car worthy. (Chicks dig it!). And the Deluxe with custom paint and the wide white walls. A classic look that everyone loves. They're all good conversation starters and I am typically very gracious in accepting those compliments.

Was leaving a hair cutting place awhile back had the shovel kicker. Was parked in front was right middle of the kick,looked up two young boys faces glued to window watching took two kicks to start. Sat down pulled up the jiffy stand gave them a big wave and off I went. Gratifying to see young kids interested. Does a heart good. Ride safe. Wild Bill

Hey Cozz, here you go: That Ultra of yours does kind of remind me of a ďCop BikeĒ, and you know what? I dig it, it looks badass! (And I apologize in advance if I have offended you!). 😀

Never gets old. Its black, chrome and loud. Its hard to ignore whether you like bikes or not. Old, young, male and female have paid compliments. Very much an ego boost when it occurs, im only human so of course it feels good

Try owning a classic car, everywhere I take it, people come up to me and
tell stories about how their Dad had one, or their uncle.
It never amazes me how many people have to ask that year the car is.
I thought everyone knew what a 57 chevy is.





Here's my other one.
