many more people walk over to talk to me about my Ural now that I stripped
the fairing, and fancy seat off it. (practically every time I stop to fill up the tank,
now that I think of it).

Of course, if you don't like being nice to people you don't know and have never met,
then this might not be such a great idea. For me, it makes me feel less isolated.

Good luck!
