I'm part of a MRO here in SE Louisiana, and we have sort of adopted a revolutionary saying... "We must all hang together, or most assuredly, we will hang separately." - Benjamin Franklin. It really shouldn't matter what you ride. I wave to the guys on sports as much as cruisers. I will even ride with them if they aren't speed demons or showoffs. I want them to stay on two wheels as much as anyone... but at the end of the day, if they lose their rights, we lose ours too. However, people... lol
I've got a Kawi 9c with no badges and only the stock breather to say anything about it in text. Two of my brothers have Honda 750's but the rest are various Harleys. One of those money pit owners even works at the HD shop here in town, so my bike is up there on a regular basis and parked out front. Now, aside from the salesmen trying to push me on to their expensive parts shakers, I've never had a cross word said. I've even had a few compliments and several riders who've said, "I used to have one of those..." or "My brother's got one." Those all end the same, though. "Nice bike."
Sorry you had to make a point the hard way, but consider your purists as uninformed. Sometimes, they just don't want the idea, nevermind get it.

Sometimes you find diamonds in the ashes of your previous endeavors and losses.
