    I think $10 helmets would still be overpriced for this guy. I was starting to think one of the sick fucks from this site was passing through Memphis and decided to mess with me.

    Guy at the gas station while I am fueling my 690 Enduro....
    Him.... "Hey Safari! Who makes those??"
    Me, realizing he saw the decal on my Safari tank. "Uh the bike is a KTM but that fuel tank is made by Safari Tanks."
    Him...."KTM? Who makes those??"

    I love this one when I'm standing next to my fully-loaded-for-camping Tiger and head-to-toes in gear.

    I've heard it enough times I have to wonder if some folks are really that scared to take the risk to just say something about the bike, first.

    Next time I'm going to say, "No, unfortunately. I typically just run around in gear looking for photo-ops. This one seemed to match my outfit today. Could you take a pic?"

    He was giving an "American" answer, as a joke, I suspect.

    At least, I imagined that could be a pretty typical "American" answer...

    I especially like the YouTube video where they have a map of the world and have "IRAQ" written across Australia, and ask random Americans to point-out Iraq, for much humor...

    Technically they are both right....The bike is made by Austrians and the Safari tank by Australians!:clap:clap:clap

    The Supermoto always intrigues people. The stupid question you get occasionally is "How fast will it go?"

    At the moment it's "Aren't you cold on that thing?" or some variant thereof.
    I'm riding a trailbike everywhere in the middle of winter, of course I'm bloody cold :lol2
