Almost all motorcycles, motorbikes, scooters, and everything else that is used for transportation is now considered reliable. Reliable is good!
It seems to me that we only have to work on enjoying our style of riding motorcycles or driving a Miata (I have 2 ) or whatever without feeling that only yours is good enough. IT’S ALL GOOD!
Good people buy every brand and model machines that are manufactured or home built. Good people buy anything that does not cause harm to other people or themselves without condemning the other people for their choices. Please love and enjoy your choices and accept that other people are entitled to theirs. I find it more rewarding to look for the good in people and, having found it,decide if their way might make an improvement in my life. Let’s Live and Let Live as much as possible and again…Look For The Good…Look For The Good…Look For The Good because hate is usually a bad choice.

I think you’d have to be looking for bias in order to find it in that article.

So I’d like to submit this food for thought:
This “Us v Them” attitude is precisely what most non-Harley riders detest about the Harley crowd. And it’s disheartening to see that some of us are responding in kind.

See you all in Killington – whatever you ride 😉

I read the article twice looking for the no goldwing and local yokal comments. I think you miss read Herbert. I will be there on my Honda Shadow and I am proud to ride my bike. She is very pretty. I even have lipstick to match!! LOL
Looking forward to the event. I was planning to go last year also, so I was happy to know it was on for this year. Can’t wait!!!

If you read the 3rd sentence in the 3rd paragraph, “Instead of the Goldwing and sport-touring set, the Killington Classic was geared towards all bikes and all riders, particularly American-made V-Twins cruisers and customs.

Although unintended (?), the term “Instead of…” is easily interpreted as we want American made V-Twin cruisers and customs (read Harley+)… not Goldwings and sport-touring!

Just another Goldwing rider… Dave B from Canada.

I too couldn’t understand where you were coming from with that comment. Jonny was reffering to the KC as being a “local-yokel” event in the past and I did not read it that they wanted to exclude GW riders. If anything we want to welcome ALL riders to our beautiful state and rally. Please reconsider coming because I think you will be glad you did.

It’s top-notch, and world-class. Everyone who’s been there knows that.
So I went back & re-read my article, and I hope you do the same! The miscontrued sentence is at the end of the second paragraph, for those of you keeping score at home.

Speaking to your other point, the Americade folks don’t want “only Harleys” at the Killington Classic – on the contrary, they’re simply trying to give the KC an identity of its own, apart from A’cade.
You and your fellow Gold-Wingers really should check it out, as you’ll be very welcome, too! Everyone will.
It’s gonna be a blast!

I do not understand how the people from the Americade can have a hand in the [KC] after U call AMERICADE a LOCAL-YOKET event. Americade is the most Classic event in the Country BAR none. I would not attend the KC now even if U sent me a free ticket & I will make sure that all my GOLD-WING RIDERS know this.The statement u made is very idiotic.
