    I've done that before when someone wanted to be an idiot. The person actually got tired of waiting and went looking for another spot literally seconds before I pulled out. Oh well, maybe next time they'll be nicer

    Ha ha! I cussed a motorcycle in a parking lot today, but only because I couldn't see the bike and I thought the space was open. :rofl

    Best way to troll the cagers....park the bike all the way in. Bonus points on the scooter -you can see the steam coming out of their ears :D

    Yes I realise I could get it knocked over but its only a scooter, and I only do it when I can see it because otherwise its no fun.

    Motorcycles in car spots are only assholes if there's a bunch of them and they took a whole space each. Some cruiser riders are bad about this but I think the wide spacing reflects their general "largeness" and lack of precision about riding.

    At my local Tuesday Night Coffee we usually get about 7 or 8 bikes (sometimes more) parked in two spots. We had a rather large lady bitch because 'There are so many motorcycles in one spot, this isn't a gang area'.

    Talking to the baristas I guess she comes in every Tuesday and her job shift changed so she was coming in later.

    We took up 10 spots the following week.

    A gas station attendant at a gas station near Route 78. I was on my Multistrada 620.

    Him- "How fast does that go?"
    Me- "I don't know, maybe 120 but I've never tried to find out."
    Him- "Oh, really? I see them go by here at 200, 300."

    Since I ride a 250 ninja, any time someone wants to gawk and then ask how fast it goes, I just point to the tail and say that it says 250, but I've never had the balls to get it up that high.

    He probably meant furlongs per hour, a measure still common in parts of the US.

    I agree with you.

    However, in some cities(like Washington, DC) the law says one bike per parking spot.

    with the DR750 at a motorcycle shop, the shop co-owner looks at it from 5 feet away and asks:

    "is that just a KLR with DR Big stickers on it?"

    [​IMG]

    granted the DR750 is uncommon but I had just finished asking him about DR750 parts


    yeah bud, I not only put DR Big stickers on my "disguised" KLR, but I'm even going the extra mile of looking for parts for my imaginary motorcycle :huh


    ****

    and with the ST1300, I had a guy come up to me while I was leaving the gym and say "hey you should lend me your bike! it looks really comfortable and my wife would like riding on the back"

    when I asked him what he was planning to use for a security deposit, he got indignant and said "it's not like I'm gonna crash it!". Then he began telling me about how he wheelied an ST the last time he rode one....

    Furlong = 1/8 mile so 200-300 would be 25-37.5 mph, which is about right for a cruiser on a nice, twisty road
