I kinda wanna start answering that one with "Mach 1" or "eh... About the speed of sound" and go on to explain it without numbers.

Remember. No stupid questions... Just stupid people that ask them. That way they'll get a rash of poking fun when they finally tell their friends that know better. :p

The correct answer could have been. "Shit, I never even thought about that! Now what am I going to do??"

Guy walking through parking lot, passes by several people on his way to me to ask if I have a lighter.
You think all motorcyclers smoke or something?

Yes, I do smoke, but that's not the point.

My usual answer is "Naw, it's well above freezing." If it is below freezing, then I will substitute "zero" in place of freezing.

I am not sure what I will say if I am on the bike in Canada in sub-freezing temperatures.

Hmmm, maybe the cigarette hanging outta your mouth was a hint.

It's rare that I get asked for a cig. I get asked for a light a lot though. I used to be nice when I had my Goldwing, just tell them, "one sec", push the automotive style lighter in, and a bit later they had an old school light.

Of course, they went and pissed me off because then they just started using it when I wasn't there, so I started locking it in the trunk.

Got that last Saturday morning, too. But then it was 23F when I left my house. I just laughed and said "no ice on the road!"

I get that all the time now. I stopped at this cafe, and a bloke commented something about getting too cold to ride, it was 3c=35f, i said i ride ski-doo's and ski when it's -20c, -4f, so it's actually a good riding weather. He said he never thought of it that way.
My hands were fucking freezing, but i wasn't going to tell him that

Coldest temps I've ridden it (yet) were 28F aka -2,6C a few days ago

Too many people told me I was nuts...

My favorite:

We were on some sort of single track with the 950/990's and came upon a group of riders taking a break on little bikes 2-strokes and 450's. We had to stop cause they were blocking the trail. While waiting to go past one of them looked at us and asked if we were lost.

I just said no we were on our way to lunch.

I usually just say: "B--B-BRRRRRRRRRRR".



In '08 I rode from Vancouver to Toronto in the last week of Nov.

Snow in Roger's Pass, and north of the Great Lakes.

The snow in the Rockies was not much trouble.

The snowstorm north of the 'Lakes would have been doable if it hadn't been night, and

if the road wouldn't have kept meandering about.

Kept my heels on the ground like outriggers so I knew what vertical was...

I went off the road 4 times before I found a motel.

I'm afraid I don't recall anybody saying anything stupid to me.

Hell, nobody ever says ANYTHING to me, except for cops.
