    The perfect answer would be "No, we teleported from Uranus"

    I wasn't asked this but I did overhear a couple exchanges of a conversation of two individuals talking about my bike. First guy asks if it is a 2T or 4T. The other guy responds that it's a 4T but then he proceeded to say "...they don't typically make enduros." I hope he wasn't serious about KTM not typically making enduros.

    Since Uranus is a gas giant, it might be more accurate to say "No, we blew in from Uranus."

    Some places in the US are starting to figure this out as well. :clap

    Of course, the usual response is to ask how many pitchers of shitty beer we want with lunch. :huh

    At one of the many Mancuso HD's around here with my Dad, He had to get a bolt and a few other things for his bike--We go to leave, as I'm climbing on my bike an older guy asks "When did Harley start putting their engines like that in their bikes"

    Politely tell him It's a Moto Guzzi he then says "Oh, Is that Japanese?"

    "No Italian."
    "Oh..So what kind of Kawasaki is it?" :huh

    I really, just--He had to of been fucking with me, just HAD TO..

    Nah, that makes total sense.
    A motorcycle, ANY motorcycle, is either a cruiser/Harley or a crotch rocket/Ninja. And Ninjas are made by Kawasaki.

    By your own admission your bike is not a Harley, so now it has to be a Kawasaki, by process of elimination.
    An Italian Kawasaki. Made by Moto Guzzi.

    I was cruising through town the other day, not paying attention, probably going a little over the posted 25 mph. Got pulled over by a somewhat attractive female cop and she asked the age old stupid question, "Do you know why I pulled you over?"
    Now I'm not known to come up with witty responses quickly, but I think I did okay. I answered "I don't know for sure, but if I had to guess, you probably heard about my sexual virility and wanted to see if the stories are true."
    Though I seemed to detect a faint smile she responded, "Not likely, just watch your speed through town". I got off with a verbal warning. :D
