#11 haven't met a millennial yet that even knew what oil was! And when I tried to explain the importance of checking their oil level they said; "na, just get me a new car"

Btw, my wife was blowing me up with texts when I was trying to ride and enjoy some music. I have a tech mount for my phone on the bars, so it was pretty simple to do. She finally stopped sending me messages after that pic. >:)

I call bullshit on #14.:laugh:
It's too hard to take selfies while riding.



Technically I am a millennial. Born in 1982. Not many people I know would think it though, even less would call me one! Hahahaha
With a “MUG” like yours all I’m gonna say is “Good afternoon young man” !! :surprise::grin::grin::wink::laugh:

Wow, they get all that lettering on a shirt that fits a cockroach?! Talk about reading the 'fine print'.

These are great! Sad but true

Unfortunately, my birth date sets me right in the heart of the millennial generation, 1989. I feel it's about the only thing that makes me one though.

I bought my road glide for my 28th birthday a few years ago and haven't looked back since.

There are still a few good ones out there!
