This is such a target rich thread!When I worked for the Guzzi dealer:Them: What kinda Hondas are these?Patient Employee: Moto GuzziThem: Cool! I like Jap(anese) bikes. Patient Employee: They are made in Italy. Them: Where in Japan is Italy?
Have you forgotten the guy who insisted the Ducati 750 on the floor would sound better with "a fo-in-wun and philosophy stacks"? ::)
...The ancient charge nurse in the Ortho Ward says:"Do me a favor, next time you decide to ride a murdercycle (yep, she used that word) goa hundred miles an hour.""Why?""So you'll get killed, and I won't have to take care of you again!"...
...a doctor....suggested riding without a helmet to make sure I killed myself in the next crash rather than end up with a broken body that he would have to treat.
This wasn't actually a *stupid* thing to say to me, but it was based on a wrong assumption that I was English....I was in England once, 10 or 12 years ago now, and heading into a pub. Outside this pub were a dozen or so Harleys. Not a very common sight in England. So I'm looking at 'em- nothing crazy there, all no more than 10 years old, fairly stock, lots of chrome- when one of the owners comes out of the pub. He sees me lookin at the bikes and says, with a huge grin and puffed out chest, "bet you've never seen that many Yank bikes in one place before, 'ave ya?"So I answer, completely truthfully, and in my very American accent, "actually I was just at the Harley Davidson final assembly plant in York, Pennsylvania, about 2 weeks ago... LOTTA Harleys there...""HOLY $---e, YOU'RE AMERICAN!" We went inside the pub, where he introduced me to the rest of the folks in his English Harley Owner's Group, and I was suddenly EVERYONE'S best friend... Didn't pay for a single beer. That was pretty cool.
2 air cond. techs were working on my AC last summer. 1 of them walked into my open garage to get into the house and saw my Triumph Sprint which was hooked to a Battery Tender. He looked at the bike then at me and said "is that one a them new 'lectric bikes? I was speechless.
One day on my Tiger a guy told me he had the most badass speed 4 Triumph in the whole G-D state. needless to say, I was impressed. ;D
There actually was a speed 4 , I think . Seems like it was based on that 4 cylinder 600 cc sport bike built for a couple of years . Badass , well maybe DustySent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I learned something this evening then, Dusty. 98 hp and 375 lb (dry) is nothing to sneeze at. I hadn't even heard of it before.
Never say to a do-raged Harley rider, "Nice scooter you got there". I almost got my ass kicked for saying that, out side of a bar in Phoenix, by the fellow while he explained to me in very graphic terms that it was a motorcycle not a scooter! Even though I was standing next to my R90s, so he could see I was a rider not a wannabe. Gee those fellows just don't know how to take a compliment.
You hit them in the ci department. Fightin words. (My son's name is Leander, what's Leander TX like?)
Years ago, naked HD cruisers were referred to as "scooters" and faired touring HD cruisers as "sleds", at least around the OKC biker scene.Don't want to know what the Metric bikes, which I was riding at the time, were called! ;D
