Hmm... My bike doesn't have a saddle-bag, or a top box, or a cup holder - only the pockets in my jacket. "Weekenders"? That's great - your line is funnier than what the lady in the restaurant said.

In Inverness, Scotland I stopped and set down on a rock that was some kind of ornament, to have a drink. Fully dressed, helmet next to me. Sitting next to the bike. No buss stop in sight. Up walks this 20 year old and asks, are you waiting for the buss? Huh?

Riding out with friends we stopped at a terrace to have coffee. When leaving I walked up the counter, fully dressed and put my helmet and gloves on the counter. Me: Can I pay? Lady: Are you with the bridge club? Lol.

On the road to the funeral of one of my friends, he lived 100 km away,I had a flat. So in a hurry I called the BMW motorcycle assistance. Me: Can you please help me, I'm on a motorcycle and have a flat rear tire on the way to a funeral. Lady: Don't you have a spare? Me: Motorcycle! Lady: Do you have "run flat" tires? Omg... But she did get it fixed and I was in time...

I rarely get comments, but last week, in Belgium, I stopped for a lasagna at a small family restaurant. The waitress looked at my while I peeled off my jacket and removed my separate back protector.
"You're wearing a lot of protection."
"So would you," I replied. "If you ride like me."

I rode to the DMV to renew my license. I got called up to the counter, set my helmet and gloves down on the counter and said what I needed to do.

Some hunting and pecking and scowling later, the nice lady asks me "Would you like to keep your motorcycle endorsement or let it go?" I gave her the Homer Simpson two-blink stare, looked at my helmet and gloves, looked back at her and, as non-smart-assedly as I possibly could, said "I don't know...What do you think? Should I keep it?"

LOL you paint a good picture, made me laugh.
So how did she react? An "ah" moment, or the more likely wooosh?

Starbucks used to be strong enough, but they have watered it down in recent years.
And isn't it supposed to be your middle finger?
