Today while gassing up my 2010 FLHX this car pulls up right in front of me and a young guy gets out and starts pumping gas into his car. His friend gets out and stands next to his buddy's trunk and he lights a cigarette Not FIVE FEET from my bike and gas hose ! So I asked him to please move away from the vehicles while we're pumping gasoline. He gives me this look and ignores me. I stop pumping gas and started to walk towards him. He leaves and moves about 10 feet away but says to his buddy..."Looks like the Harley Dude has a problem." I know it's impossible to explain the reasons for my concern I mean how could he possibly know anything about fumes and combustion, Heck he's only 20 or so. Then the other guy says to me, "I see your all dressed up in your Harley uniform and feeling tough." OK, that did it. Pump off, hose back, cap on.. At this point my wife gives me that "oh no " look. But, I just got up close and said to the little ingrate, "Yes, I guess this is a uniform but I'm used to wearing uniforms you see, I wore my first one when I made the commitment to play on the little league team and I completed that commitment. I wore the second one when I made the commitment to represent my high school on their athletic fields and I completed that commitment too. I wore the third one for four years while I served my country and I wore the fourth one for 30 years while I served my community. Now Mister...why don't you tell me just what is it that you've done for anyone other than yourself." I felt my wife tugging on my arm and agreed that it was time for me to just get on the bike and go. I thought I made a reasonable point...but as we left I saw the cigarette boy just flip me off as he got back in the car. I just can't relate. My wife says I take it all to personal and I guess she's right. So, for all of today's youth that has made a commitment to serve in whatever capacity, this old man says thank you. I miss being around those types. Ok, I'm done. Sorry but I just had to vent and my poor wife has heard it all before.
