since I have my 800GS I only get compliments and that it looks like "an oldtimer bike" I don't know what people used to ride here but it had to be nice

Asked of me on a hot summer day while in full gear: "You look really hot."
Me: "Thanks, but I'm married."

A co-worker asked me the other day if I knew how to properly lay a motorcycle down to avoid a wreck.

No joke. I laughed really hard. Both were dressed in full pirate gear, skull cap, sunglasses, vest, jeans, boots and all Harley brand.

Why yes, they teach that in MSF, if you think you may wreck, just wreck yourself to avoid the wreck.

I have hard cases on my GSA w/ red reflective tape going down each corner. Someone who looks like they use drugs...a lot, asked if there are medical supplies in my cases. I politely responded no, just groceries. I think that really confused him.

BMW MCs ARE old man bikes, just like Porsches are old man cars.

Those folks are right.
