I went out for lunch today with a friend and parked my Wee out front her office (she rides a cruiser). When we came back she started looking at it and noticed that my exhaust pipe was not all bright and shiny. She wanted to know why I didn't buy some heat wrap so it wouldn't look dirty anymore?

Um, it's a Wee - it gets washed once per year whether it needs it or not, why would I put tape on it to make it look shiny.

Yesterday, as I left work on my way to lunch, I pulled up to a stoplight alongside a Fast and Furious style Integra. The driver rolled down his window and yelled over to me, "Hey man! I got a question for you about your jacket." I expected the "Aren't you hot in that thing," but was instead surprised by his saying, "I've got a GSXR and I've read online that wearing a jacket like that [red mesh cheap Fieldsheer] will keep you cool because it blocks the sun some. My friends say it makes you hotter and most guys just wear it to look fast. Which is it?" I laughed and simply responded, "It works great when I have the wind flowing, but not when I'm just sitting here." As for perfect timing, the light turned green, I sped off and gave him a peace sign over the shoulder.

Not particularly interesting, but a nice interaction with a possible squid.

Last week I was being processed as a patient at the Albany Medical Center, and encountered a real who was in the medical field(Do No Harm??). Anyway he's talking about how he sees these accidents all the time, and asks if I knew what 'they' call motorcyclists. I knew where was going with this so I just glared at him, and decided my small talk with him was over. I was also pretty well medicated for pain at this time, and had no comeback.

Once he was done with putting my ID bracelet on me, he asked again, "Do you know what we call motorcyclists here? Organ donors."

Fuggin' self-rightious asshole-

BTW, his was the only sour note during my visit there.

I'm sure I would have shouted something at him like "The correct term is patient, you F*&ING A$$HOLE! What's your name and who is your supervisor?"

Yeah, when I broke my hand they asked how I said "dirt bike" they all went: "Oh"

But they were all super cool. It's not like 'dirt bike' is any different than 'slammed in a door' or 'table saw' or any other reason they heard that day.

I have a 1955 Ariel and was once asked,
“ How old is your bike? ”
“ 56 I replied ”
“ Have you had it from new? ”
I thought I looked good for 35

I've been riding since 1969, I worked as a machinist and in construction for about 20 years, and I was a shop teacher for 9 years.

In my experience, most motorcycle accidents fall under "hit by car", "road hazard", or "squid".

Power tool injuries are pretty much all operator error.

The last thing I want to hear from nurse Diesel is a lecture on how stupid I am while having my wounds scrubbed out with Betadine.

We get a hell of a lot more, "opening a can with a (enter ANY tool here)" or "the lid cut me"s than motobike injuries. So opening cans is more dangerous!!

Anyone ever opened any of those Soviet-era sardine can ammo boxes? The ones you are officially supposed to use what amounts to a big-assed P-38? Try using my normal method, a screwdriver and a pair of vise-grips. Ripe for injuries, though I've been lucky so far.

I would have told him that applys to the riders without the brain bucket. I also run with scissors and carry a loaded gun.

Come back with, "you know what they call the guy at the bottom of med school class?"

"Lieutenant."
