Shut it!

A little advice:

If a person is sitting next to their bike cleaning it up and making it sparkle, do not come up and say, "I guess you'll have to put it away soon." You will likely get a dirty look or a punch.

Seriously...really getting tired of people telling me this. There are better ways of starting conversations with a biker. That's kind of like going up to a married man and saying, "I guess you kind of settled there." Or a woman who just got a hair cut and saying, "I guess you won't get that style done again." Basically, you are starting off on the wrong foot.

Besides...you are talking to a guy who won't stop riding until the snow starts falling. Now shut it...I'm going for a ride...

Hi Giest,

How's it going? Sorry I haven't been around much this summer. Been very busy and not much time for blogging.

This winter is actually showing signs of being possible bad in my area. I've stopped riding to work, as it's getting too cold at the crack of dawn when I leave. I do ride to college in the evening still.

No worries, betty! Good to see you drop by.

Stopped riding in the morning already? What kind of temps you getting down there in the AM?

Don't listen to anybody. Its just like all the crash stories I hear...from people who don't ride. They have no clue what it feels like. Ride On....

I know exactly how you feel! It's really a strange way to strike up a friendly conversation, but I guess some people just don't know how to do any better--ugh!
