MILWAUKEE – Harley Davidson riders are often stereotyped as loud, annoying assholes. But there’s something about the sound of a roaring engine that still appeals to people after 120 years.
Maybe it’s the feeling of power and freedom that comes with riding a motorcycle. Maybe it’s the camaraderie of being part of a community of riders. Or maybe it’s just the thrill of pissing off your neighbors with the sound of your bike.
“We’re proud to be the most obnoxious group of bikers out there,” said Harley Davidson enthusiast, John Smith. “We’ve been annoying people for 120 years straight and we’re not stopping anytime soon.”
“It was like a nightmare,” said one resident who wished to remain anonymous. “The noise was so loud, I thought my head was going to explode. And the worst part is that it went on for hours.”
Despite the complaints from local residents, Harley Davidson enthusiasts say they will continue to be as loud and annoying as possible, because that’s just who they are.
