A co-worker of mine asks me about once every six months "What kind of bike do you have?" because he can't remember what the answer was the last time he asked me. When I respond that it's a Suzuki DL 650 he sucks in his breath and says "Oooh, that must be a fast one." Whatever. Makes him feel like he's talkin' bikes with his bud, I guess.
You learn something new every day if you're not careful.
If you think I won't understand it just because you have to explain it to me, maybe it was bullshit to begin with.
