the old days...
"your lights are on".
"I stopped you because you don't have your headlight on".
"why wouldn't you want to turn them on?"
My headlight went out in Tioga Pass last month. I used my bright to get to a station and began swapping the bulbs as they are the same, but in a different position.
While my hands are occupied inside the ferring, trying to unplug and plug in the bulb, some drunk 20 something year olds started in on me. Can you ride a wheelie? I tried ti ignore it as they sounded drunk and assanine. Come on man do a wheelie!
I replied "No thanks, im working on something here".
They kept on with, Come on Pussy do a wheelie! I kept working on the light and tried to ignore them. It was getting frustrating as they kept on saying. Ride a wheelie, ride a wheelie. It was 1 am on a Saturday in Oakdale, Ca. and cops where everywhere and I was about 800 miles into a long ride. I was tired and cranky.
The last thing I heard was, come on man my friend can do wheelies! If you ride a wheelie my girlfriend will suck your di##. I heard a girl calling him a jerk and they sped off.
I think thats the most common request I get. Someone at the side of the road motioning a wheelie or yelling it out. I really enjoy the community around motorcycles and like to talk to folks about pretty much anything when im out on my bike. However there are a few idiots out there who are simply idiots.
I had a deer run out in front of me on MLK and Pine in the middle of Seattle. I always thought that deer would be the last thing to worry about while riding in the city.
INCHES?!?! on the HIGHWAY?!?!
Oh the humanity....
Odd you should mention it, but Sunday AM we saw two huge buck deer grazing in a garden in the middle of the city of Durango, CO. The property owner shoos them away with a BB gun. She said they are an almost daily nuisance.
them - "Nice Harley!"
me - "it's not a Harley"
them - "I had a Harley once. It was crap."
me - "oh"
them - "what is that - like a 10 gallon tank?"
me - "a little more than 5"
them - "wow, it's BIG!"
me - "have a nice day"
I don't live in the frozen north.
When it gets like that in WV, they park the plows and everyone stays home.
Otherwise I'd have a snowmobile or a dog team.
Take the doggies. My only ride on a snowmobile was great fun except for one thing--the stupid thumb throttle. What a POS design. It was a long ride and my thumb still aches when I think about it.
I get that a lot from cars going though town while sitting at a stop light. It's like where the fuck am I going to wheelie exactly? Into the back of the Honda Civic in front of me? Most of them have been grown adults asking me to (or miming the throttle hand moving). The kids just wave.
That's gotta be my favorite interaction on the road, when a bored looking kid spots you out the side window, or out the back at traffic lights and you give them a little wave. That excited wave back, and jumping around telling Mum and Dad "he waved at me! He waved at me!" Then slapping his brothers and sisters until there's five little faces squashed up against the window all waving and smiles... Brightens my day.
Guy at work: What in the world kinda bike is this?
Him (cutting me off): oh... It's a v-strom... I can't get used to how small the front tires are on these!
Him: Man I had a xrtzcbr12501500 and it's front tire was this big and the rear was like this! As he held his hands out about 2 1/2 feet apart.
Me: That's cool. I gotta run....

We now have a thread devoted to that.

Dickhead, named it after you! LOL
"You ride motorcycles? That's awesome! Can I touch you so I can be awesome too?"
I hate when people ask me that................
Day dreaming a lot as I can see...
