Depends where you are.
In the US, I just take the keys out and walk away WITH my helmet.

In Europe, I would probably lock the forks and put the brake disc lock on.

Nope, I have woman. I don't want women. But she sure is purdy.
No I still don't want a Harley because they don't fit my riding style. Don't want a sport bike either for the same reason.

The feeling might be similar to being tired, but being tired does not affect your decision making and self assessment abilities. Alcohol certainly does, quite a bit.

I say Say-ca, but that's because I started saying it in the Netherlands where I owned one.
In the US See-ca is probably the more likely pronunciation.

I think of a Ferrari, McLaren, Porsche, Corvette when someone says sports car. Cars designed to keep all 4 wheels on the road. Not of a drag car.
