"Magnetic" for sure!

I need a fly-swatter to shoo people away from my bike at every pitstop.....ooooing....aaaing....and asking: Is that a dirt bike? How fast does it go? Golly, that thing is sooooo cool.

Oddly, my KLR never attracted gawkers like this, and mine was really well-sorted.

After two years of feeling like a public ambassador, I'm kind of yearning for more obscurity again. I mean...they never give it a rest. If you're in a hurry and just ignore the inquiries, you get labeled "another BMW snob". Maybe THAT is the source....hhhmmm.

Think I'll start wearing some (hunter's) skunk scent to repel the wannabes more discreetly.
