Best thing you have heard while in a 'stich suit

I was asked over the weekend "When did Carhartt start making overalls like that?"

Best thing I ever heard ABOUT someone in a stich suit was outside an IMS in DC about 10 years ago. From a sportbike rider.

"He's wearing a H-Viz Stich..............let's kick his ass!"

In line at the grocery store the other day:

Older lady: Excuse me, what do you do for a living?

Me: Nuke test at EB (the submarine builder in town)

OL: Ah. So the suit is for protection from radiation?

M: Something like that.

10 year old Mexican kid with limited English skills:

"I like your swim suit".
I assume he was thinking "wet suit".

Happened to a friend of mine while having his safety inspection done on his GS at a HD stealer.

Walking out after paying for the inspection past a small group of HD hangers on in his red stich.
One said "man aren't you HOT" my friend stop turns to the group and said " I never thought of my self like that, but thanks for noticing !"
He then turned and walked out. All the while the group was laughing at there buddy so hard he may have had to sell his HD vest.

Walked into the office wearing helmet, gloves, etc..

Co-worker sees me and asks..."Oh do you have a motorcycle?"

My answer...."No, I am just really clumsy and the wife makes me wear all this."

My two daughters call my red 2-piece R/C the 'Santa suit.' I assure them that gifts are not forthcoming!

While in Duluth about a month ago, my buddy and myself were cruising through town checking things out. We stopped at a ice cream place over looking the port to cool off a bit. While standing next to our bikes, a few kids 10 to 12 yrs old came along on their pedal bikes and said, "Nice suits" in that condescending way they are clearly making fun of you. It not what they said, but the fact that my buddy and I were made fun of by a 10 yr old kid riding his bike that made us laugh. It was a proud moment.




We then chased the kid down and gave him a wedgie.

Doesn't the heat bother you in that suit?
