1978 Suzuki GS760E (the HC is an aftermarket part, though).
Actually, by detemining where I am, my location has changed due to the fact that my looking caused me to move -- it's this weird new quantum physics crap. and I thought the "new math" didn't make any sense!
I was also talking about cages. not bikes...
Does that thing really have a Turbo?
"Yes. It's right under here. That's why it has 'Turbo' written on it in five different places."
Did you really ride all the way from Pennsylvania?
"No. It has 140,000 miles on it because I trailer it everywhere."
What's wrong with your odometer?
"Nothing. You've just never seen a dual sport with that many
Where's your truck?
"I don't have one. I ride to, ride in, and ride home from events on my dual sport."
Yea? But where's your truck?
Did you see that tornado?
"See it? Hell I rode through it. I guess you didn't notice my shredded rainsuit."

Yesterday about my Duc..
"Do you ride that through saltwater?!?"
now that I think about it, it is both not that stupid a question and maybe a case for why some people brag about why their bikes never have seen bad weather. Maybe they're not so dumb either.
Many years ago while walking home from school I passed a lady mowing her yard. I remember this because there was a crank handle on top of the motor. She wound it up, pulled a lever or something, and the spring spun the motor and started it.
Victa in Australia (inventors of the rotary lawnmower) had a wind up spring starter on some models back in the 1970s or earlier.

I'm sure other companies elsewhere must have had the same idea!
Neat, but I've always wanted a cartridge start lawnmower.
Dude should be ATTGATT!
Not that I have a problem with my mower, but that would be pretty cool!
Gassing up in the Florida Keys, I've got my Conspicuity Vest on ( always ), and this alcohol fueled chick decides she wants to talk : " Are you related to Evil Kneivel ? " Me : " Why, yes, I am, he's my second cousin and I see him now and then, he's a cool dude, I wish I could live closer to him but that's the way it is. " By this time I pulled on my helmet
and hopped on the bike. Unreal expression on her face.
Of course it was an unreal expression, she thought he was dead.
Had a 2 kids (16-20 ish) this last winter try to tell me that I was riding a motocross bike and I would wreck it as it was way to cold to be out riding it. My reply was you must have a hog rider or two in your famly huh? There answer was how did you know that... I just laughed and said well I have a hog too but they won't run unless its sunny 75,( mine goes when I say so tho ) these dual sports can run in the snow. He then tryed to tell me that I was drunk or somthing... It was a 45 deg day n sunny in jan northern Wi
Seems like the most frequent comment I receive is "I rode a motorcycle once but fell on a gravel road and never got back on."
I actually met him at a bar in Clearwater, FL. A friend of mine used to hang with him. He actually left in his Aston Martin, drove home and brought back coins from his Snake River Canyon Jump, posters that he signed for us and some samples of some special muscle ointment he was working on. He also regaled us with stories of the Hollywood starlets he had slept with. The one he got the biggest kick out of was a regular gal that showed up at his hotel room door with her boy friend in tow. She told him straight out that she wanted to screw him. When her boy friend protested, she told him that if he had a problem with it, he could just take a hike. He stomped off and she came in. LOL!
He was quite a character and our money was no good at that bar.
Ok....I rode the FXR yesterday and I got this form a wee-strom rider.
"Hey cool, I didn't know Harley made v-twins"
