Hell, I took longer than that to go ~10 miles yesterday. And that was after the first 20 miles just to get to the point where I decided where I wanted to ride. Of course, I did stop. Once to adjust my glove, and again when another biker flagged me down to let me know that coming up the single lane road I was going down, was an oversize load (which was pretty cool, thanks man, if you're out there...).

30 miles is barely a decent bicycle ride.

Let's be fair. It may well be 30 miles between manly bars. Can't be stopping at any stinkin' "fern bars" on a Harley. A real biker is willing to go the distance for a Miller Lite.

Someone was bewildered at how the wheel stayed on. Showed him the other side.



In general though, a lot of people I meet at gas stations tend to be amazed at a single-sided swingarm (and/or shaft drive). They're fairly rare around these parts.

And I've hardly ever been asked a truly stupid question. If you meet someone with an unfamiliar hobby and decide to start a conversation about it, you're bound to seem uninformed, that's all it is.

That's 30 miles more than I rode yesterday.

Fixed it, and in all fairness THAT would be an accomplishment for a Hardley rider in my neck of the woods.
