A few months after I learned to ride a proper motorcycle I washed the bike and promptly sprayed Armor All on the seat. Holy shit, I made that mistake only once.

Pretentious much?

Let's see, so you think because they are out there busting their humps to clean your shiny shit, they must be thugs and/or parolees.

Maybe they could smell your air of superiority and arrogance and sprayed armor all on your tires just because.

Yeah, either that or I've seen them come & go for the last twelve years with regular police visits. If I felt so superior I would not have let them wash my truck, much less my RT over all these years. I give the local guy a chance whenever I can. I've had good experiences here with different guys before. Didn't work this time. Take your bigot hunting high horse to CS&M.
