    In the parking lot at Natural Bridges State Park, Utah. A lady could tell from my clothes that I was the guy riding the motorcycle parked up in the lot.
    She kind of wrinkled up her face and said "Why are you riding so far from home on such a little bike ?"
    It kind of caught me off guard. " Little bike ? It's not that small. It's 920 cc and weighs over 500 lb.s plus the stuff I've piled on it. It's about all I can do to pick it up. "
    'Oh, I guess the bags make it look small. "
    WTF ?

    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 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..."

    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!

    "Chili bowl!" I haven't heard that one before. :rofl 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?"
    Me-"no...":lol3
    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.
