True Story

I work in a motorcycle shop and the other day (I stress this actually happened, so all you liberated women don't blame me, I'm just reporting) and said she was new to town and wanted to buy a light Summer Jacket for the heat down here in NC. I welcomed her to town and asked her what she rode, what kind of riding she did and what was she looking for in a jacket.

I swear, her answer was, " Well, my bike is red...." At that point I lost it. Of course I lost the sale and yes, she was blonde.

I can't make these things up.

Re: True Story

That is a very funny story, but I am a Rider Coach in Pa. I get that kind of response many times from guys as well as girls when I ask what they ride or plan to ride. Most don't know the difference between a cruiser or a sport bike.
I think that is part of why I teach. Nothing surprises me anymore.

I do understand why you laugh.

Re: True Story

I was steering clear of that, but since you asked .... If you like high fashion runway models, you will think she was hot. BTW, she said she rode a Ninja 650.
