I didn't miss that, just assumed... You know the rest ;-)
Gas stop this morning for a quick splash.
"how do you keep that from falling over without pedals?"
I figured it was a kid (turn around)
nope nope nope nope
Woman in her 40's. I said I didn't think pedals would help -
"well isn't that how a bike stays up? the pedaling?"
wow I guess so! (come on alu gas cap cover don't cross-thread on me now!) fire and leave.
Are you waiting for the day someone gives you a "I eat Green Berets for breakfast," "Hasta la vista, baby," "If it bleeds, we can kill it?"
Better yet, "I need your clothes, your boots and your motorcycle."
Don't know about him, but I'm waiting for that comment.
Can't blame him but a guy at a sports bar asked were I got the body kit for my b-king, thought the whole thing was aftermarket. He was quite confused about the indicators on the side of the tank and the stock exhausts.
It must have felt pretty creepy when you realized these guys had probably been checking out your ass.
Had another one today. Woman at cash register asks me "How long have you been riding"? I answer "That's a good question" and look at my watch and say "About 20 minutes"!
I have mine wrapped around a wrench handle. Same with a little aluminum tape, a roll of electrical tape, zip ties, and a few other odds and ends.
It does seem like I need them less and less, but when you do it sure is good to have it along.
It seemed like a tongue in cheek comment, somewhat rooted in the old Harley rat-bike stereotype.
I have gotten the "That is a cool Kawaskai, never seen one like that." multiple times now.
If it is a good looking woman asking that last question, I'm okay with that.
Where is the stupid in this? I mean, other than your smart-ass answer.
"If it bleeds, we can fill it."
Yep, I'm with you - not a stupid question, more like a stupid answer
Sounds like the woman was interested in motorcycles, motorcyclists(), learning how to ride, striking up a conversation, etc.
Some people just don't do well in public.
That's a mighty fine coat, mister:eek1
I was at the store today and some old guy came up and patted my helmet kind of firmly and said "Thank you for wearing that"
My initial reaction when I saw a hand grabbing at my helmet was WTF WHO IS GRABBING MY SHIT
I kept calm and then he told me how he'd be dead if he hadn't had his helmet on, and that he was in this horrific accident, and killed his neighbor and suffered brain damage, cracked his helmet open he said. He didn't elaborate on the story but the guy looked like he was in a bad wreck at some point.
He also told me he crossed the country 9 times over his life. Cool guy.
I do Find this To be pretty funny when It happens.
I'm out On a week Alps Tour right now, and the funny looks we get when we remove our helmets are priceless. We Did photobomb a bunch of Swiss guys one time, told Them they were ugly and their picture would be better with ckicks in it.
I'm still laughing over your "No, we teleported in from Venus" reply.
Post up some pics, I'm jealous of the riding you have over there.
