+1

I have mine wrapped around a wrench handle. Same with a little aluminum tape, a roll of electrical tape, zip ties, and a few other odds and ends.

It does seem like I need them less and less, but when you do it sure is good to have it along.

It seemed like a tongue in cheek comment, somewhat rooted in the old Harley rat-bike stereotype.



Ride on.

No

But Kawasaki owns them don't they?

Yea, sure. Have a nice day.
I have gotten the "That is a cool Kawaskai, never seen one like that." multiple times now.

If it is a good looking woman asking that last question, I'm okay with that.

Yep, I'm with you - not a stupid question, more like a stupid answer

I Feex!

Sounds like the woman was interested in motorcycles, motorcyclists(), learning how to ride, striking up a conversation, etc.

Some people just don't do well in public.

I was at the store today and some old guy came up and patted my helmet kind of firmly and said "Thank you for wearing that"

My initial reaction when I saw a hand grabbing at my helmet was WTF WHO IS GRABBING MY SHIT

I kept calm and then he told me how he'd be dead if he hadn't had his helmet on, and that he was in this horrific accident, and killed his neighbor and suffered brain damage, cracked his helmet open he said. He didn't elaborate on the story but the guy looked like he was in a bad wreck at some point.

He also told me he crossed the country 9 times over his life. Cool guy.

I'm out On a week Alps Tour right now, and the funny looks we get when we remove our helmets are priceless. We Did photobomb a bunch of Swiss guys one time, told Them they were ugly and their picture would be better with ckicks in it.

I'm still laughing over your "No, we teleported in from Venus" reply.

Post up some pics, I'm jealous of the riding you have over there.

Not on my bike but.. A guy pulls up next to me on a 49cc scooter at a light. Since I was in the truck I had my window down. He takes a puff on his cigarette and asks "hey, you wanna race?" I knew he was kidding. I answered yep and I'll even keep it in first gear! He had leathers on and the whole biker attire. He looked like he rode a bigger bike most of the time. I was nice and let him drive away like he was winning a race
