I got Beat by a Harley

.....at a "1-class" (there wasn't any other class, just best bike) motorcycle show over the weekend......
I am SO disappointed, my 2000 F4 #122 is absolutely pristine.....
I got beat by a Harley Softail with a fancy pearl paintjob......
1 of the judges voted for my bike, the other 2 did not.....they were "older".
Never again will I enter a 1-class bike show.

The same thing happened to me. I had my R1 in a show a couple years ago. I knew what was going to happen when I found out the bike portion of the show was funded by the local harley shop. I won in the modified class but lost to the harley for best in show

HA! IT WAS sponsored by the local Harley shop......funny, I didn't make that connection until right now.....oh well, I got a free t-shirt.....can't complain about that anyway....
Mentioning a tracklap would have been a hoot! I wish I would have thought about that at the show.....
I did have my MV Motorcycle Art banner waving proudly at my set-up area.....maybe these folks can't read though.....

A bike just ain't a bike unless it's a Harley.

Did the judge's have all there teeth? Did they have mullet's, tatoo's, leather boot's and jackets? If so you didn't stand a chance!

These things are very subjective and if the judges are more favorable towards Harleys then a Harley will alway win. At least you weren't beaten by a harley on the tack or in the twisties as that would be embarrasing!!
