I walked into a Perkins in Tomah, WS in July and when the waitress came to seat me, she looked at my 2-piece Aerostitch and with an incredulous look on her face said "Are you cold?", to which I replied, "Why, yes. I'm freezing! Aren't you?" After my lunch, at the cash register, I was putting on my jacket, and she said "I just can't believe you're cold." I gave a fake shiver and said "Burrrrr!" I really hope she saw me ride my bike out of the parking lot.

Oh, I hope she didn't see your bike at all

I notice the douchebags are starting to return to the thread. Maybe it's like the swallows at Capistrano. They hang up their riding gear at the end of the Summer and sit down here to tell their tales of witty reparte` and verbal victories over innocent question-askers.

Every year, like buzzards to Ohio, some people join in this thread not comprehending the idea of the thread.

WTF?

Everyone's different, therefore their idea of stupid is different.

Why bust their balls?

I enjoy most contributions here.

Don't feel the need to crap on anyone's contribution.

BTW, I ride all winter, in Canada, except when there's snow on the road.

Don't own a car.

Yet...

Woman looking at my '89 R100GS - "Is that one of those in between bikes?" Me - "in between? You mean a dual sport? On and off road? Yeah." Her - "That is a very different looking bike. Everyone knows about Harleys and Ducatis, those are the two really distinctive bikes, but I don't think many people have seen these before." I tried to explain about adventure bikes and the early GS's, but she didn't really care. That's Ok, I didn't care that she didn't care.

Hot or not? That is what really matters here.

I was impressed today. I had a coworker ask the usual, "aren't you hot in that?" And when I asked if she'd seen road rash she responded with a grimace and said, "I guess you're right. It's better to just grin and bear it."

She even understood the idea of ventilation and sweating a little vs. dehydrating and overheating in 100+ degree heat from riding without a jacket for long distances once I explained it to her.

I was impressed.

The correct response was "why thank you, [blush]"
