And fortunately you don't have to walk around with his "kind of crap" on... Ride your own ride...

Hey, if you're embarrassed to have the name of your bike brand showing, I can understand that.


I'm more embarrassed to be wearing orange, although I DO own an orange helmet now. But I justify that because it's bright, almost as good as my yellow helmet.

Morning Coffee

I walked into a local mom and pop restaurant to get a cup of coffee while riding in town. Lady behind the counter asked what I wanted. I ordered a regular coffee. I'm wearing a high viz jacket, carrying a helmet and gloves.

She asks: "Is that for here or to go?"
Before I can answer, a guy behind the counter with her says: "You better make it for here - it might be kind of inconvenient for him to hold the cup WHILE HE'S RIDING HIS MOTORCYCLE." We all (including the lady) laughed.

The next time I was there, maybe a month later, the guy is there but not the lady. I ordered a cup of coffee and he obviously remembered me: "That's to go, right?"

#2 what size is that engine....when i say 650 i usually get a head shake and a damn. no idea why...guess it kinda does look more like a dirt bike now?

#3 what the hell is that bike for? i really don't have a good smartass reply to that.

You could say that it is to have something exciting between your legs. I do get some rather weird looks when I use that line in a conversation.

Steve,

That's because it's a girl's line.

Most dangerous part of motorcycling is that you might end up in a hospital. Hospitals are very unhealthy places, something like 1% of people who go into them emerge from them dead.

It's worse than that. Everybody born in a hospital will surely die.
