It's not just the non-bikers that ask stooopid questions...

"Man you take that thing off road?"

Sitting at a gas station earlier this year on my 1150GS, covered with mud and slime, dripping slush and gooop on the ground as I gassed up... I was also doing the arm waving dancing thing trying to warm up after a long ride on the still-snowy and muddy roads over the mountains from our farm near Lexington to Douthat State Park in west central Virginia when that question was asked by a group of wildly colored, tight fitting leather-clad gentlemen riding their Aprilias, GSXRs, and Ducatis. Hmmmm.... how to respond to this?

Me: "Yes. Do you ride those on the highways?" End of conversation.
