:) The following is perfctly true and, as far as I can remember, word perfect. My wife and I were touring Ireland in September 2001. I was on my brand new V11 Sport, she was on her GPZ 500. We had spent the night in a pub at a place caled Ogonnelau. My wife was outside loading up her bike when she popped her head round the door to tell me there was a chap who wanted to discuss my bike. Expecting a fellow Guzzisti, I went outside. There stood an old boy, in his mid 70's I guessed. "That's a nice bike you've got there" he said. "Yes it is. Thank you". I replied. "What make is it?" "It is a Moto Guzzi" He then looked at it for a while before remarking "Are you sure it isn't a BMW?" "Yes I'm sure. Look. it says Moto Guzzi on the tank and on the engine", said I pointing vigourously at the rocker boxes. He looked at it again for a time, before saying,"Are you sure?" "Yes, of course I'm bloody sure". Then he turned to leave, uttering the immortal words, " I think you'll find it's a BMW" Needless to say we have both had plenty of mileage out of this tale!
I'm in a local diner north of Pgh. A fellow outside who I could see through the window was pacing back and forth, examining the bike in detail.When he came into the diner, I asked if he rode. "No, I sort of dislike the things ....... but if I did like 'em, that'd be the bike I'd want."
I'm a Harley guy myself.""Great! Whatcha riding now?""Oh, I don't have one now, but I'm thinkin' about buyin' one."
Not to me but this was said to my eldest nephew. When my nephew was learning to drive he was taking my father in law some where and used his turn signal to change lanes, my wifes step dad asks "why did you use the turn signal' Nephew, "because that motorcycle is behind us". Father in law, "Oh you don't have to do that those guys that ride those motorsickles knows it's dangerous, ask you'r uncle". Any way you'll wear out the the turn signal. Fortunatly father in law no longer drives and the boys watch out for motorcylces.
"What would I hold on to"? she asked. The thought of explaining my DOT approved hand hold remained merely a thought. After all, she may be married to a linebacker. Besides, no extra helmet.
I don't get those kind of invitations, but I recognize them when one is sent someone else's way with flowers around it, bows on it, and an aura of Victoria's Secret in a halo ....There's no linebacker, she was aiming straight for you, and you could have found a way to solve the helmet problem pretty quick!

"Hey", he says, "You dress funny!"
Over heard at the Bella Vista bike show on Sunday while listening to a Ducati dry clutch rattling merrily away ."I would not own one of those pieces of Italian junk."Later, as Guzzistajohn on his CX100 and his buddy on a black Dharma roll by on the beginning of 110 mile ride home, same guy says " Them damn Guzzis are junk too". Bear in mind, his bike came on a trailer from 50 miles away . Dusty
