Cute girls make guys say stupid shit.
Cute grrls on bikes make guys say really stupid shit.
Welcome to the Asylum, AdvGrl78...
It's beer an sammich time!!
Case in point.
Apparently, for her, size does matter.
I didn't say it,but several years ago when business women didn't ride motorcycles.
My (hot)asst manager bought a 81 Honda CBX.
Which she rode to work on casual fridays.
Our District supervisor was in the office , he asked her
"what does a little thing like you do with such a big motorcycle"?
She looked him in the eye and said"Well mr. Laney I like to put it between my legs sir"
I need to remember that one.
I was on my way from Colorado Springs to East TN on my CB350. In full gear, in May. I'd just been through a particularly unpleasant stretch of something resembling a highway, which I was trying hard to avoid, because, well, CB350.
I'm at a gas station, I think I've already filled my tank, and I'm trying to rehydrate before setting off. A woman pulls up to the pump behind me in a beat-up Nissan, gets out, and asks: "Are you going to the beach?"
Me: "What? The beach? No? Why would you think that?"
Her: "Well, you're from Colorado..."
Bitches know beaches, you land lubber.
The best one for me, so far, didn't involve a single word. In Phoenix, Az I pulled up next to a car in a parking lot on an XT500 and parked. The lady in the car just reached over and pushed the lock button down, and then glared at me.
I did not read all 400+ pages of posts, but I have been on plenty of MC trips and have gotten a ton of dumb comments/questions. But in return, I am sure that I have sounded like an idiot to the non-riding community. I just relish in the fact that when I am cruising down the interstate, the Dad in the mini van I am next to wishes he was me!
ADV riders having fun in Warshington,,Trip to Alaska planning meet-up,,Ellensburg,,
happened to arrive at a liquor store the same time Tracy did,, I park my 1200GS on one side of a black and chrome cruiser,she parked her KTM 950 on the other side of him. I came out of the store and stored away my purchase in the bike,,cruiser Dude is waiting on his bike.then Tracy came out of the store.
Dude with chili bowl helmet says," That's an awful big bike for such a small woman.",,
,to which she quickly replied,,"That's an awful big head for such a small brain!",,I thought I'd die of a heart attack/ lack of air from laughing!
"Chili bowl!" I haven't heard that one before. That opens up a huge realm of new metaphors and put-downs. It beats pudding basin, novelty helmet or beanie.
e.g. "Are you seriously expecting that thing to protect your head or is it just a convenient way to carry your chili bowl?", or
"They were all carrying nice carbon-fiber/chrome/shiny black chili bowls",
"Why do pirates need to carry chili bowls?", etc.
I'm sure someone can come up with better than that
Was at the pool today, and guy sitting nearby asked why I had a cast on my arm.(I got rear ended last week). so I answered, said I had gotten in a motorcycle wreck and told him was riding a sv650. "oh that sucks man, I'm gonna get an R6". He proceeded to tell me all about how he drives 175mph in his uncle's mustang "all the time", but it isn't really fast enough for him. :huh
The best part was when he went on to say "I've ridden a friend's GSXR 1000, and a R6. So have you ever gotten a elbow on the ground yet?"
It amazes me how people will act just to look cool. I put about 2500 street miles on my SV already before the accident, and there is no way i would hop on a liter bike, nor do I have any desire to ride a R6. And the only place anyone is going to be "dragging elbows" is on rnickeymouse's youtube channel.
I agree. I had a loaner F800ST for a day. Plenty fast enough for me. If I had the money Id definitely look at picking one up for street duties. I can also definitely see myself getting splattered on a liter bike. No thanks, not my cup of tea.
Don't twist the twisty thing on the right so much?
At times, I'll try to keep a cage 800-1000 ft ahead of me as a "Deer Plow"
"What kind of BMW is that?" When I'm riding a Yamaha...
I usually just say "the one made in Japan" and leave it at that.
Usually leaves them looking confused. Seems to happen with the FJR and the Super Tenere both. I guess the average non-rider only things of the GS and fully faired Sport Touring bikes as "BMWs". Sort of like all cruisers are HDs.
