A Wolf amongst the Sheep

"Be careful, there is a Wolf amongst the Sheep", or "One does not belong"!

I took this picture of my 96 GSX-R1100W, sitting in front of of 100's and possibly 1000 or more Hog's on Friday night at the Raleigh NC "Ray Price Capital City Bikefest"

Re: A Wolf amongst the Sheep

I'm not sure I'd call that 'a wolf among the sheep'.

Perhaps 'a gazelle among the pigs'?
Or maybe 'a greyhound among the sloths'....
Or better! 'A barracuda among the manatees'

But I digest. Besides, they weren't ALL Har-lees. Two bikes down from you is an 80s Honda V65 Magna. A classic - the first ever production 10 second bike. Not fair to lump that in with those hogs.

Well technically, I can't really tell if it's the V45 or V65 Magna but in either case, it aint no hog.

My bad..... I guess I referred to "Hog's" as a type of bike, not the manufacturer. And yes, I know that there were probably another 500 plus regular bikes out there too, including adventure and dirt bikes, I was there! I just liked the contrast between my ex-Michigan dragstrip race bike and most of the other bikes in this lineup. And I somehow can't see comparing my bike with her 41mm keihin flat-slides, her 1200 cc overbore kit, carbon exhaust, and, and, and, with a Gazelle, Grayhound, or Barracuda... But, that is only in my humble opinion....

Re: A Wolf amongst the Sheep

I heard that once back in the 80s and chuckled. I also saw it in one of the Family Guy star wars flicks.

Whenever I find myself rambling-on in random directions, I'll throw it in for a giggle.

I don't believe I've ever typed 'but I digress' until now, in explaining this
