^^^ How do you spot the "roadbook nerds" in a crowd of motorcyclists... ?

1. They're the ones who everytime they see a clear plastic lunchbox in a department store,
they ask the shop attendant a) is the internal bredth more than 155 mm, but not more than 170 - 180 mm maximum
b) is the lid transparent, scratch resistant and seals out dust/moisture.

2. When entering a mobile phone dealer, upon sighting the latest iphone/android/smartphone gadget...
the first question is not about pay plans, mobile net coverage or international roaming...

... but if it has a GPS and is software compatible with google earth...
