There are lots of reason to communicate other than to question anothers honesty. If someone makes a statement as fact that I believe may be false and their statement matters to me then sure I'd question it otherwise proof is not required. For example if someone claimed they got 80mpg after pissing into their MC tank after a night of drinking I'd laugh but not call them out... unless it was my MC tank they were trying to piss into. ;)
There it is. If it really doesn't matter, then let it roll.
I've been married almost 25 years. I wish I could remember that line of thought more often, instead of arguing with my wife about stuff that really doesn't make a difference in the long run. I should shut TFU, and let it roll.

OTOH, arguing about camping and riding with the boys, instead of working on the house and property like I *should* be doing? Well worth the argument, because I NEED to go do this, without a valid reason, except just that.

Anyway, sometimes it's just more polite to shut up.
If you don't believe it and think the claim is full of shit.....then get a good laugh in your head, let it go, and go for a good ride!!
