This is going to head right down the same rat-hole as the "Billie Bad-Ass" thread . . . :dh:

If you send your chaps out for dry cleaning . . . you might be a RUB.

(I had to Google "RUB" -- and if you have to Google it, you might be a RUB . . . )

Carry on -- :coffee:

I got no problem with rich urban bikers. I know a guy who likes riding his bike around town on Sundays. He isn't interested in long rides. He is too busy working the rest of the week to ride. But on Sunday he puts on his leathers and rides to a few bars, friends houses or to dinner.

He puts about 500 miles a year on his bike, about 10 miles or so each Sunday that he rides. Every five years, he trades in his Harley to get a new one, just at the time it needs the 2,500 mile servicing. So every five years, someone gets to buy his old bike, a 5 year old Harley with 2,500 miles on it. The bike has been garaged and looks almost new. He is now on his 4th Harley, having owned three other ones over the past 15 years.

He told me his hobby costs him several thousand dollars a year when amortized over the five year period. Most of his cost is depreciation and insurance. Gas and maintenance don't add up to much. He makes a good living and this is his main hobby.

So I enjoy talking with him when I run into him. He is a fellow biker. he just doesn't ride as much as most of the bikers I know do. But he is out there on two wheels, riding a Harley on Sundays. I've got no problem with that.

If you don't wave to other riders because 1) you are too smug to do so or 2) you're afraid of crashing by doing something complicated like waving, then you might be...

If you ride a 2010 FLHX you might be a RUB.
So, you're going to explain to me that the reason you have only 46 posts since July is because you're out wrenching on the chopper? We don't wrench you know . . . I mean we own the Service Manual, but only because we feel compelled to toss around the jargon when leaving the bike in the Service Dept. -- on our way to "Wardrobe" and "Chrome." We have staff who does the wrench thingie . . .



:clap:

-- I don't "ride" it . . . It's in the garage, on a lift for the winter, taken off the insurance rider, hanging chrome on it like it's a freekin' Xmas tree. I don't ride in the winter wet. The water runs up the butt of my assless chaps. (pictured above)

Interesting, I just realized your screen name is 2010 FLHX, what a coincidence. You know, it's not beyond the realm of possibility that there is more than one 2010 FLHX out there, and some of them might be owned by RUBs.

And the only reason I only have 40some posts since July is because I've been busy trying to figure out what a RUB was.

You can't force these types of threads. It's funnier if they simply evolve....

The humor comes from people who take it seriously.
I agree, it seems being called a RUB does NOT rub people the wrong way like being called a poser would. I guess RUB still has "Biker" in it so it is fine. Plus it's too soon after the "you know you are not a real biker when.." thread.
