Weird People in the Middle of Nowhere

I was maybe an hour outside Rochester NY years ago and I'm eating Wendy's in the parking lot next to my bike.

A weird guy is next to me with a car full of crap, looks like fishing gear, newspapers, clothes, and mostly garbage.He has a massive gut and his shirt only covers the top half of his potbelly. Hasn't shaved in days, I was hearing banjos.

Anyway, after rummaging around he looks around at his surroundings, walks over to me and says

Him - "Hey, you're the only one wearing a watch!"

Me - "Yeah...uhhh, it's 6:30"

Him - "That's just like me, haha....fat gut and no fishing pole!"

I suppose it made sense in his mind, I just send yeah I guess and kept eating.

I withdrew to a refueling establishment whereupon I removed my protective headgear. The good gentlemen who was assisting the patrons in refueling their internal combustion machines exclaimed "Hark, you are of the fair gender." "Quite so Good Sir," I rejoined with some slight unpleasant tone of voice. Next he asked me the rather impertinent question: "You ride a motorized cycle?" to which I replied with an icy look of disdain. After a not too brief interlude he inquired if I was in need of petroleum distillates for my trusty machine.

The inanity of this question struck me odd, and I informed the benighted attendant that I, though of the fair sex, was more than capable of refueling my own steed. I further exclaimed "You are more than welcome to go assist another individual who may require your services." His final inquiry, which I found most annoying (perhaps the fatigue of my riding had shortened my temper) was a desire to know the maximum velocity my contraption could attain. I now determined that I would have no more consort with this fool, donned my headgear and left in search of an alternative fueling entrepot."

You're welcome.

I'd wager, good sirs, that you have frightened off the fair damsel with your persiflage.

It was very early in the morning on a cold day in rural Australia. AS I pulled up on my Super Tenere.. an old bloke in his pyjamas enjoying smoke came up to me...

"What size is that bike?"

It's a 1200 mate.

"Are you scared of it?"

No mate.

"What make is it?"

A Yamaha!

"Really? I didn't know Toyota made motorbikes!"

He wasn't that far off actually - whilst Toyota, on paper, only have a minor shareholding in Yamaha, they actually have very tight control of the company (due to the symbiotic and incestuous relationships in Japanese zeibatsu and keratsu). As you probably know, Toyota subcontracts all the head design for Toyota engines to Yamaha.

I did not know that. May have something to do with why Toyota engines are so durable. Any proof?

Not really stupid but it seams people just gotta say something.

Rode back to Rock Springs from Cody on Friday. Temps in the mid to low 30° range. Stopped to fill up before going home. Guy comes up to me and says "bit chilly to be out ridin' ain't it?"... I say, "Ya don't get tough by pampering yourself". He smiles & nods.
