with the DR750 at a motorcycle shop, the shop co-owner looks at it from 5 feet away and asks:

"is that just a KLR with DR Big stickers on it?"



granted the DR750 is uncommon but I had just finished asking him about DR750 parts


yeah bud, I not only put DR Big stickers on my "disguised" KLR, but I'm even going the extra mile of looking for parts for my imaginary motorcycle


****

and with the ST1300, I had a guy come up to me while I was leaving the gym and say "hey you should lend me your bike! it looks really comfortable and my wife would like riding on the back"

when I asked him what he was planning to use for a security deposit, he got indignant and said "it's not like I'm gonna crash it!". Then he began telling me about how he wheelied an ST the last time he rode one....
