I got one similar from the clerk at the gas station I frequent. Her, "Probably be the last time you ride this year huh?"
Me, "Hell no"
It was sunny and 38deg
They just dont get it. You walk in from ridin in the rain and they ask you "Did You know its rainin?":huh
Went to the grocery today and ran into a old HS girl friend. Her husband rides a KTM Duke and is ATGATT.
I'm on my Buell, in my gear, carrying a helmet in my hand, basket in the other.
Her: Did you ride to the grocery?
Me: No Maria, I'm just that clumsy!
She had this look on here face, like "dammit asshole you got me"
We laughed and hugged goodbye.
I hope you copped a feel for old times...
I'll never tell...
I have the opposite experience. If I see someone coming the other way with a motorized two-wheel, I give them the wave. I often get surprised looks from moped riders.:huh
For me, it isn't about comaradery with other riders. It is about helping each other stay alert. I don't get upset if they don't wave back, I just assume they either 1. Don't feel it's safe to take one hand off the bars, 2. Don't believe in waving, or 3. Are alseep on their bike. I have seen someone waving at me too late to respond and realized I was not even paying attention.:eek1 They may have saved my life...
In the roadcrafter one piece and older women ask if Im a firemen! She went on to say before I could say anything that she had the utmost respect for what I do for a living
I like to wave too.But i dont wave at harleys anymore because i got tired of not getting one back.
Iam on a ducati so my bike isnt good enough for them.
After the way we were treated at the Barber Vintage Festival by the Ducatisti, I wouldn't complain about another marque's owners acting elitist.
Ha! If only she knew!
Ride or park a vintage CB750 anywhere and it's hard to get away from questions or statements like "I always wanted one of those", "My ___________ had one of those" and, often with a far away look in their eyes "I had one of those, wished I never sold it".
Every group has a bad seed.But i have never seen one harley group that i was good enough to ride with them.
On the other hand, the Harley crowd loves my Guzzi...
The Harley crowd likes the Norton, the /7 with sidecar, and the German Shepherd too!
The HOG guys tend to be a big fan of Boris the Ural too. Or maybe it's the cute gal driving it?
I don't care what you ride, just ride!
