I got another "I didn't know BMW made motorcycles" at the weekend. I suppose that's a statement, not a question, but it is the most frequent thing I hear. A close second would be "Do a wheelie" but the most frequent actual questions are "How fast does it go?", which is not really a stupid question, and "Aren't you cold?" which, on the face of it is not stupid, but I wouldn't ride if I couldn't do it relatively comfortably, and I'm usually bundled up pretty well when I hear that one, so I think it's a bit stupid. I'd imagine it's about the same for most riders.
