I teach elementary school. At the beginning of the year I introduce myself to the class with a slide show. The show includes pics of me and my motorcycle, which I use to transition into a discussion of safety and classroom rules. I ride to work nearly every day, and generally arrive just as the busses are unloading (we're open for breakfast 45 min. before classes start). I also keep my helmet on top of the file cabinet by my desk. Invariably, within the first month of school, one of the kids will say, "Mister, I didn't know you rode a motorcycle."
Gotta love them.
