Sorry, pretty LONG..but i'm still shocked and pissed...

So, was out all day with the lady on of course the six.. We rode everywhere...nice scenic ride, lunch, beach ride, then ride some more etc, etc. We were ending our day but made a stop at the local grocery store for some last minute things for dinner. So got to the parking lot parked the six and we began taking off our gear. Just as I was getting my helmet off after helping my lady (she hates the strap) I hear two bikes come from a distance. As they were getting closer I notice that they were a pair of Suzuki GSXR's... they park right next to where we were parked...I waited for a little just to say "what's up" and "nice bike". They both took off their helmets and immediately began giving dirty looks. I still said nice bikes guys...still no response and the same dirty look..So i was thinking " oh sh*t, maybe it's there time of month". After a couple of minutes me and my girl began walking into the store when one of the GSXR riders shouted, "Yamaha's are for pussies!". I turned around and was shocked to hear this from a rider. I went straight to him and stated that I wasnt going to get into a debate about which bike is better and that you should just appreciate people who share the same passion as you do.. As soon as i finished my rant the dude SWINGS at me. I ducked and got a good right on him...IT WAS ON! the fight eventually subsided, but not until a good 5 - 10 minute fight and store security stopping us. the GSXR riders took off with one of them redlining the motor. we all eventually parted ways.

Has this happened to anyone? or are u guys just as shocked as i am? at least i got the best of the whole thing.. i just wanted to say hi and be as friendly as i could to my fellow riders, but the guy decided he wanted to be a d*ck and say stupid stuff..hahaha didnt even get me but trust me i got a couple of hits on him....YAMAHA +1.....SUZUKI ZERO...

Yea dude for sure stickin up for the six! ive never had this happen..sure the occasional wave and no wave back from riders on the road but nothing like this.... maybe they were just jealous that they spent all this money on a GSXR and they realized that they should've went with the Yamaha R6...whatever man....no biggie...definitely a head scratcher tho...haha what was up his a$$?

What a ****ing douche bag. I hope you beat the shit out of him. WTF is up with him swinging at you? I can understand punk kids yelling the "Yamahas are for pussies" but him swinging at you doesn't make any sense if what you say you said to them is in fact true. Pretty pathetic showing by them.

Good job for sticking up, and kicking ass! But yeah, that is really stupid for that kind of behavior, there is no excuse for that. I get into heated debates with my buddy about his ZX6R and my R6, sometimes we even have to 'take a break' but in the end, it is all in good fun. But to be serious about something like that, come on. They don't even deserve to be riding a bike.

yea man. well said. we're riding bikes dude. it's really is all in good fun. who cares what you ride as long you ride and do it safely. whatever tho...if these GSXR guys continue doing what they are doing with their attitude then theyll get what they have coming.. when that happens :popcorn::party

YES! just the topic i wanted to go on about... just sitting at the top of the forum for muah. :jump

So I kid I used to work with got a gsxr (Me and another guy I work with had bikes and I think the kid felt left out) This kid was REALLY obnoxious, so i was annoyed when he got one, cuz i knew he would just want to talk bikes with me, when i just didnt want to talk to him at all. :nono

Well he eventually gets fired. Not that it matters cuz he couldnt afford the brand new 600 he bought anyhow. He rolls in today to pick up his pay check and naturally im outside as he rides up. F***! He had put all kinds of mods on the bike, at least a $5k. a +2 (and still cant wheelie haha), red LEDs ALL OVER, took mirrors off, all screws replaced with those spike screws instead, stickers:
-If you don't speak english get the F*** out
-I F***ed up
-Life is full of decisions (pictures of multipul sex positions... even though you know the guy never has to worry about those kinds of decisions :fact)
-Something about cops???
-Some ignorant crap on speeding
-and about a half dozen others that my mind obviously doesnt care to remember because of how stupid/tacky they were.

and a bunch of other mods.

The whole left side is cracked and scratched from him droping it walking a turn :dunce:

Anyhow. He goes on to tell me how him and his buddy want to total his bike (brand new, 1500mi on it) I ask why the hell he would want to do that?
His responce was so that he could get the pay off and get a 1k. He's been riding for a couple months, obviously not very well. Two thirds of his rear tire was chicken strip. Which would explain why he dropped it walking a turn... too much lean for him to handel. But oh yes. what you need is a 1k :bash

I saw where you're from and as a bay area native I completely understand what had happened. Main thing about that place is everyone is against everyone. I remember seeing at a stop light in Pacifica on Hickey a group of 3 riders, another rider was making a left at the light on a rocket and one of the 3 riders began revving his bike as to intimidate the other rider. That's one thing I don't miss about that place is everyone thrives on huge egos and their so called reputation. It's like everyone has this belief that they have to be so much better than the other person. Big ups to you for stepping up and putting him in his place. From my experience living there, its so hard to find decent people that actually appreciate the same passion you have for certain things. Most are just egotistical idiots who have their nose up so high they frown upon you for anything less than what they have. Please think twice if it ever does happen again and just let it go. You never know if the other guy is packing, know what I'm saying? Believe me I know the bay and it's lifestyle. I'm very glad to see you're the one that walked away on top

yo man, i remember talking to u a couple weeks back...when we riding bro? haha.. anyways yea i do in a sense regret the whole thing only because it really was a waste of time and my girl was there who i would not let anything happen too. as for the whole bay area thing i definitely feel ya on that. everywhere u go there are these types of people....everyone really is against everyone....it comes down to who has the "better things in life" cars, girls, money, clothes, etc. when is just being happy good enough? gimme a full tank of gas and a number one with onions from In "N" Out and Im all good man. anyways...RIDE SAFE EVERYONE

Wow this is lame, I had no idea we were fighting over manufacturers. This sport has nothing to do with which bike you ride a good rider on an R6 will decimate one of them assholes even if they were riding a busa. I only ride a Yamaha because I have had great success with them in the past as well as the two ATV's I have which both are closing in on 10K miles.

This is just stupid.
