Happy Halloween

In light of the holiday season, I took my combination "childhood-idol" and "extra-warm-outfit" costume for a ride on the K12LT this weekend. Needless to say, I couldn't stop laughing, and I saw several people laughing with [or at] me. I figured I'd share the wealth with you guys, my cycle buddies...

Final 2-day tally (~4 hours of riding):
tons of smiles/laughs
dozens of waves
several horn honks
5 thumbs up (from 4 people, one lady gave both thumbs up)
1 photograph taken by passer-by on freeway
1 middle finger

Thumbs up

Did the same thing with my (bad) Elvis wig and sun glasses today.

'05 K1200LT,
My dog is very selective where he will pee, yet he will poop anywhere. In that regard; we couldn’t be more different.

Is that the new Aerostitch Hi-Viz riding suit? Sure sounds like you got noticed, and I bet it was a whole lot warmer than these guys.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

So, I suppose you have a Santa outfit ready for use in December as well!
A piece of advice: Do not wear a Barney costume at any time! People have been known to hate the dino and might throw things at you!
For Summer a Flintstone outfit will provide some needed ventilation... but you must ride a Harley!

Thanks for sharing.

I don't think that counts as ATGATT, but we'll let you off the hook... just this once!

In the spirit of Halloween (yeah, that's the reason I did it...) I went out this weekend and picked up something with the appropriate color scheme. Guess I know what I'll be riding to work on Tuesday!

Cool

Can't help but imagine it would help those cagers "start seeing motorcycles." I assume it was armored!
