hi all,
thought i’d relate a small, but significant encounter I had this weekend. After having lunch at the Finnis Cafe on South Australia’s Fleurieu Penninsula Saturday, I rode into Strathalbyn to a servo to fuel up. When I pulled up to the pump there was another scout across from me already fueling up. I got off my Scout, took off my helmet and gloves, walked over and shook the guy’s hand. I said “there’s more and more of us out there” and he said simply “nice bike”. That was it. I turned around and started fueling up and he went on his way. It was a busy servo so there was no time to have a quick chat; but we didn’t need to. It was the most natural thing in the world to walk up to a complete stranger and warmly shake his hand, such is the power and brotherhood these wonderful motorbikes create.  So I want to say thank you to that anonymous Longrider CMC member on the beautiful gloss black Scout who stopped into the Strathalbyn servo around 2 pm on Saturday. You made my weekend brother.

A mate of mine is president of the Longriders Northern Division here in Newcastle. He knows almost everyone, and they recently had a major meetup down Adelaide way. I'll ask him if he knows anyone on a black Scout from down there.
Cheers, Kim.

I agree, whilst it seems a bit corny, its real nice to feel that you can go up to "anyone" that has an indian and strike up a form of acknowledgement.  And in all fairness, most of the other "large bike" riders are happy to pass the time of day also - and this is a really good thing 😉
