Whoa... hahaha! Condescending? All I said was that it was my first time riding in the Midwest, never complained or belittled anything. Common sense got me that far.
I felt sorry for him and myself, my home is the Midwest. He seemed like a nice guy and I respected the hell out of him for "riding what he's got".
Sorry, I didn't mean you specifically, I was more referring to the guy in my example. There is an air of superiority among those people like, "I pity you for having to ride this mountain".
