I bet George Costanza would be pleased.
I am all for well planned pedestrian malls.
It would be outright impossible to ban cars (and trucks) in downtown US cities.
DC is thinking about doing congestion pricing in the downtown area. This might help.
Thank you for this. I will be using this in the future. I'm only 6'4" 250 lbs but, I think they will get the message.
I'm pro-rentable scooters too. I hope they will lead to a lot of new motorcycle riders as everyone realizes how fun riding around on two motorized wheels is.
In today's society, be prepared to have that taken as a threat and all the legal fun that could entail. Not that I agree, but people are hypersensitive these days.
Doesn't help for us 5'7" 300 pound dudes. Lol. What am I supposed to do? Tell the guy I'll eat him?
Good point. You never know these days. In all honesty I usually smile, nod and ignore people. This is really handy in the workplace as well.
Another good answer to this would be to smile (always with a friendly smile) and say, "I don't know. How does being a dumbass feel?"
I’ve often just say something like, “yeah, it’s not for everyone. You have to love riding.”
Well, you get the same stupid comments with tattoos... "I don't like tattoos" etc. My usual answer is "Then you definitely shouldn't get one."
Same with motorcycles. "They're dangerous/you'll die/etc."
"Then you definitely shouldn't get one" always works!
That said, I tend to get more positive comments both about the motorcycle and tattoos. Having a "big bike" in SE Asia helps, as well as very complex ink work.
"They're dangerous/you'll die/etc."
Sure, we all start to die from the time we are born, but have you ever really lived?
But somehow I think that concept would just go wooosh over their heads....
A life spent in constant fear is not a life I care to live. /Starts motor/Rides into sunset/
The fear is what makes it fun. If it wasn't scary it would probably be boring.
Hrm, good point.
Today was a day that ended in Y so I got another, "aren't you hot?" I told him that's why i didn't wear my airbag suit today. He just stared at me. Lol
You are such an optimist.
The whole point of vehicles, rentable by the hour is that the user pays for the time they use the device and don’t have to deal with niggling issues such as insurance and maintenance.
Aside from avoiding those responsibilities, they get to avoid responsibility for proper use of the vehicle, especially around other people/vehicles.
It seems there is never a perfect time to ride a bike in most people's eyes. " That's got to be hot , isn't it too cold to ride. I guess you regret taking the bike today ect......... I hear at least one of these comments every freaking day. Most people aren't trying to start a conversation just say something in passing . I get it , but damnit it gets old hearing it all the time . If its cloudy they tell me I shouldn't be riding because it might rain. I love it when we get off work and it's raining they give me the speech and I reply I'm heading home to load and ride dirt bikes. Lol
No with me it's not a threat....its a promise....if they are snowflakes let the bastards melt...
"Isn't it hot, isn't it cold, are you gonna get wet?"
I don't care, I wanna ride
Blah blah blah ... zero fucks given.
