Gassing up in the Florida Keys, I've got my Conspicuity Vest on ( always ), and this alcohol fueled chick decides she wants to talk : " Are you related to Evil Kneivel ? " Me : " Why, yes, I am, he's my second cousin and I see him now and then, he's a cool dude, I wish I could live closer to him but that's the way it is. " By this time I pulled on my helmet
and hopped on the bike. Unreal expression on her face.

Of course it was an unreal expression, she thought he was dead.

Had a 2 kids (16-20 ish) this last winter try to tell me that I was riding a motocross bike and I would wreck it as it was way to cold to be out riding it. My reply was you must have a hog rider or two in your famly huh? There answer was how did you know that... I just laughed and said well I have a hog too but they won't run unless its sunny 75,( mine goes when I say so tho ) these dual sports can run in the snow. He then tryed to tell me that I was drunk or somthing... It was a 45 deg day n sunny in jan northern Wi

Seems like the most frequent comment I receive is "I rode a motorcycle once but fell on a gravel road and never got back on."

I actually met him at a bar in Clearwater, FL. A friend of mine used to hang with him. He actually left in his Aston Martin, drove home and brought back coins from his Snake River Canyon Jump, posters that he signed for us and some samples of some special muscle ointment he was working on. He also regaled us with stories of the Hollywood starlets he had slept with. The one he got the biggest kick out of was a regular gal that showed up at his hotel room door with her boy friend in tow. She told him straight out that she wanted to screw him. When her boy friend protested, she told him that if he had a problem with it, he could just take a hike. He stomped off and she came in. LOL!

He was quite a character and our money was no good at that bar.

I was getting a parking permit at a local community college today and the lady behind the counter said "Does Honda make motorcycles?"

Heh, I think it was something like 15 years after making their first complete motorcycle before they made a car...

LOL! Just goes to show how well Honda has done turning their excellent cars into an everyday word. Several friends of mine own them and one has over 225,000 miles on his CRV with only oil changes, brakes, tires and CV joints (torn boots) being replaced.

Honda is to motorcycles what Nokia is to cell phones. Both are the largest manufacturer of their respective product, and Americans are generally ignorant of both.

Back to topic, I just got chewed out for making a passing reference to pirates. I was impressed the dude was familiar with the term.
