    For me, it's new.

    I roll up and the women, oh yes, they are staring. Then I take off my helmet and the look of disappointment is unbearable for me to behold.

    The worst :splat

    How 'bout you? I should just wear an open face helmet. That way they will know not to expect Tom Cruise from the beginning.

    The worst thing about riding a motorcycle is stopping.

    The worst thing is having a tranny on the back you thought was a girl rubbing your package.

    The worst thing, for me, about riding a motorcycle is the constant paranoia regarding other drivers: Do they see me? Do they see me? Do they see me?

    my serious answer is the gear. I won't ride without it and just running in to the store and back out is a pain.

    The worst for me could also be hearing some comment about it being cold or "I bet the air conditioner is working today, kee kee" I swear I am about to punch someone in the mouth over this.


    Also...what is Tom riding there. looks like a custom Harley of some sort, crazy headlight.

    I have a cure for this, if you ride in the middle of the road, not the middle of the lane, but the real middle of the road, tell me who doesn't see a bike in the middle of the road?

    There is no worst thing about riding a motorcycle. Some motorcycle things are just better than others.

    Sorta like there are no bad BJs

    All along I thought that look of disappointment was from the sight of my wedding ring. :cry

    you're in LA - who gives a crap what they think. They are just looking for a meal ticket anyways. The best way to deal with anyone like that is completely ignore them.
    Plus Tom Cruise is like 5'2. ive seen him on his Desmosidici - he can hardly touch

    Having to sit in a cloth covered box all day dealing with BS and idiots when the weather is a perfect 60 degrees and there's not a cloud in the sky for 500 miles. That just sucks.

    A close second is having to sit in a cloth covered box all day dealing with BS and idiots when the weather is even marginally decent. That just sucks.

    Girls don't look at me even when I'm wearing my full face helmet.

    A 46hp quad is better for getting attention than a 170hp bike.

    That's sad.

    Changing the mood a little but

    Hearing people say " So and so died out riding the other day."

    It can happen with any vehicle, but commenting in a way to make us feel guilty by association sucks.
