When the inevitable happens (American Made vs. rice burner) and the teasing starts back and forth...... what is your favorite come back line??
This should be fun.
Well, I say " I AM American Made" my bike just like yours has parts from all over the world, I changed it from stock to how it is today in my garage which is in the USA, so I guess "My bike was put together (made) in the USA by an American" ..........Now lets ride, we both can agree, we ride American roads...and can dream that someday we may ride the roads where the parts that make up our bikes come from.
Its not a come back line, never feel that I have to come back, most riders understand its not where the bike came from, its the person riding it....The bike or the rider do not have to be American Made. The motorcycle owner who buys into only having that brand of bike and all the clothes (etc) to go with it, is just that a "motorcycle owner", I am and ride with, "motorcycle riders", who just like me, enjoy riding, whatever, wherever, whenever we can. Its not ownership of a motorcycle, its part of who I am. Parts (motorcycle or people) can come from anywhere.
