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....
