That's a great combo!
Iffn' I was not relaxing with a bourbon and a cigar, I would have gotten up and slapped them upside their heads for confusing a bike I would ride with a Hurley.
Harleys are fine, just heavy and lacking ground clearance.
I'll eventually have one, I'm sure.
I pulled in front of small town bar to get lunch. Kid pulls up on his bicycle with confused look and asks "what is it"?
I say, it's a motorcycle.
He says "I know, but what kind"?
It says Honda on it. So I said, I'm not sure what you're asking?
Heard him almost say crotch rocket ? But then asks "What's it for"?
Wanted to say for riding, but need to finish this up. Told him it's a touring bike(ST1300). For riding long distances.
As he thinks about it, reading the plate he say's "I've never even been to WI".
So I think he learned there are more than Harleys, dirt bikes and crotch rockets.
I enjoy driving well, enjoy the focus required, attention to detail.
Bike heightens that, or at least should.
Maybe it's atavistic; maybe it's self-absorption (they are by default pretty close on the food chain re: evolution, right?).
I like it. And will probably rear-end a stopped school bus tomorrow looking at a short skirt for jinxing myself with this post...
I had one the other day.
Stopped at a deli to get a cold iced tea.
As I'm getting back on my bright red '99 Goldwing,
this really fat broad with a butt in her mouth and a
baby in a stroller says to me, "Wow! Is that
a Road King?" I said, "No! It's a Honda!"
while pointing to the big chrome Honda badge
on the side.
She seemed disappointed and wandered off. (thank God!)
The combo really isn't all too far off either - two cylinders for torque, sport-y fairings for wind resistance at speed, and tall suspension for dirt
Like, those kids are taking things that are familiar to them and figuring out how to apply those familiar templates to a new concept. That's not stupidity, that's curiosity!
I was going to say harley for weight, but....
Had an old farmer lean around the gas pump this morning, said "A little chilly this morning isn't it?" It was 63 degrees.. Trying to be polite I just agreed and kept pumping my gas.
Just YES....I love it!
Now people are questioning my t-shirts! Yesterday I was wearing a Del Rio, Tenn biker bar shirt and someone asked if I had been there or just bought the shirt? Well, when I told him, of course I was there he didn't believe me. Lol. He kept giving me the 3rd degree and I wanted to tell him to f*** off but I just rolled with it until i could escape.
I worked for a Harley dealer and tourists would come in and buy shirts all the time. One lady said "this is for my brother, he collects shirts from everywhere he's been." I ask which in her group is her brother. She tells me, he didn't come on the trip. I said "oh, so he gets a shirt from everywhere YOU'VE been." She didn't find the humor
Her brother would have been terribly disappointed by a shirt if he collects shorts.
No, you can wear a shirt as shorts, as long as you don't mind your dick and balls hanging out of the neck hole...
This post is just fine without photos.
haha. Good spot... Fixed!!
But it is ok if i just want to look in the mirror? Asking for a friend
Photos can make all the difference.
As an example just take this graphic from the anime that I've been watching from a streaming service currently; Grand Blue (Dreaming) (where the anime title is from the name of a Scuba Diving rental shop).. Several of the longer time male employees have a very loose regard for the wearing of clothing, leading to the show's protagonist Iori Kitahara and a friend/rival named Kōhei Imamura being likewise disposed frequently.
NOTE- that's Iori Kitahara leading, and blonde-haired Kōhei Imamura at the back of the pack.
