My Jeep is down due to electrical gremlins. As such, I've been riding to work all week, despite the thunderstorms.
Yesterday, I rode the Bonnie hack. It is green.
Today, I rode the Ural. It is red.
I approached the Fort Bragg gate and got engaged by stupid. Today, stupid took the form of a MP Private, fresh out of training.
Guard: "I had never seen a sidecar once in my life before yesterday. I saw one yesterday, and now you pull up on this one.
Me: So you saw one yesterday?
Me: Was it a green Triumph with a cargo hack?
Me: Then that was me you saw yesterday too.
Guard: No, the one I saw yesterday was green, not red.
Me: I know, I ride the green one too.
Guard: But this one is a Ural. The one I saw yesterday was a Triumph.
At this point, the guy's NCO is chuckling at the exchange. He gets it, and is laughing at his own Soldier. I've got a formation to get too, so I figure I need to end this quickly.
Me: Wait, you saw a green Triumph yesterday? I've never seen one of those. It must have been something else. Have a great day!
Now the poor kid's NCO is laughing uncontrollably. As I pull off, I hear him say "Private Johnson, didn't we tell you to not to talk to anyone?"
Tomorrow, I'm taking the Triumph and going through his lane again
