You should try going up first.
I don’t know, but you better have ‘I Can’t Turn You Loose’ playing on the eight-track when you do it.
If the plastic tank was from a BMW, it would probably have blistered or faded paint. Good reasons to hate BMW plastic tanks.
I may have played that game in my youth on a KX80.
Fun game, would recommend.
When I lived in NorCal "Doc Wong" was my chiropractor when I was having back issues. He told me that riding was terrific for my back. It is true. Get a different chiropractor!
Sitting under cover at a small gas station while it poured rain, with the rain gear safely tucked away at home, the local meth heads pull into the gas station and proclaim "Getting rained on, huh?"
Sux, don't it? I learned over 50 years ago, always, always have rain gear with you.
Yup, but a box of Dollar General trash bags got me home without hypothermia, so plus side acknowledged
Proper planning beats riding in trash bags every time.
Btw, i was just in your neighborhood! The Mrs. and I did some hiking in Acadia. I looked for you but did not see you. In Millbridge tonight!
I'm hard to find like that....
I thought I knew this, but messed it up this season when I was taking about a 200 mile after work trip. Sun was out, weather report looked good, so I hopped on the bike and took off. About 70 miles down the road, it started sprinkling and I figured it would be brief... Nope... Turned to pouring down. So I got where I was going, bought a rain suit... And rode back through rain almost the whole way... Always take the darn rain suit
I actually got out of the habit because I mostly ride with my KLIM gore-tex - this trip I happened to be in my REV'IT mesh suit. Usually reserved for the 90° plus days. Nope, 72° and the only rain cell between me and home. Thanks Garmin Avoid Highways setting.....
"Is this your bike?" ......as I walk up, open the trunk, and pull out the helmet.
No, just saw it sitting here, and decided to steal it with 3 people looking and taking pictures.
A guy walks up to a guy walking a dog and asks, “Does your dog bite if I pet him?”
The dog walker says, “No, my dog does not bite.”
The guy reaches over to pet the dog and the dog immediately bites the guy.
The guys yells, “You said your dog doesn’t bite!”
The dog walker says, “This is not my dog, I am just walking him. My dog is at home.”
At least you had that.
Every day that I ride in the rain my coworkers question me, and I work at a motorcycle shop if that tells you anything.
I decided to ride the 900 SS to Walden for lunch.
On the way up Cameron Pass it started raining. Sometimes quite hard.
I thought I learned never to leave the house without the rain gear, but I guess not. (Luckily now a days, that just means gloves and boot covers so only my hands and feet were really cold)
I found that in the summer the best “rain gear“ is a change of clothes. Every kind of rain gear I’ve tried just seals me up like a pickled sausage from the gas station. I stew in my own juices and I’m just as wet with sweat.
I usually wear my ballistic nylon pants, and have jeans and street shoes (chucks, which pack small) in my saddlebag for when I get to where I’m going. An extra shirt, socks, and undies doesn’t take much more space.
In the winter it’s a whole different ball game, I want to be sealed up when it’s cold. But in a North Carolina summer? I’d rather get wet.
Riding a FZ07 and still confused how many obviously not bike people ask me if it's either a BMW or a Ducati. I still have no idea what they are seeing to ask that.
And two people have remarked on it being an onroad/ offroad bike. What? How does a FZ07 look anything like a dual sport?
