D. Why my wife won't let me ride?
E. Don't you hate wearing all those clothes?
F. What kind of bike should I buy?

Just a few possibilities - you may have others.

Just had "one of those conversations" this morning....with a woman whose son started riding and RACING dirt bikes at 7 years old, and still races 20 years later.
She started to tell me that street bikes are dangerous.
So I told her that every dirt bike rider I know, INCLUDING her son, has had several broken bones from crashes. I reminded her of the time a few years ago that he broke both wrists and she had to wipe his ass for him.
That sorta toned down the conversation a bit.

Am I too fat to ride a 50cc scooter on my 30 mile commute? I weigh 440 lbs.

Why won't anyone be honest with me about that 2 year old Ninja 750 on Craigslist for $500?

I like this TR:)

I usually get ridiculous questions when riding in the winter.

"OMG, you're riding in the winter!?!?!? Don't you have a car?"

I am (how else would I have gotten to the fuel station?) and I do, but the bike is still fun even when it's cold out. :D

How many times have you been putting your gear on, standing next to your bike and even laying stuff on it and get asked, “do you ride that?”.
The Wife does a variation of this one where she asks me if I'm "taking the motorcycle" when I start putting on my gear. I always tell her, "Nope".

So how fast will THIS ONE go?
Said in a disapproving manor by a non rider.

What's THAT?
Said a disapproving, judgmental preacher when he saw a pic of my bike.
BTW... I learned you can go to hell for even owning a motorcycle.
Racing them, even more so. (Not sure that's possible but why argue with a self-righteous ass). Lol

"What kind of bike are you riding?" "A Honda Goldwing." "Is this a new model by Harley?"

"Aren't you too told to be riding a motorcycle? I quit riding when I got old." "I'm 76 and still riding, how old were you when you felt you had to quit because you were too old?" "Oh, I was 55."

Obviously that preacher doesn't have much respect for Chuck Swindoll...
