I was out riding my scooter today wearing my helmet, t-shirt, shorts, flip flops and my gloves. Some guy asked why gloves but no shoes or long pants. I replied that if I fell off at least I'd still be able to wipe my ass.

Went in to the bank yesterday in full AGATT carrying my helmet. The not unattractive teller asked " ridding your bike today?". She was just making conversation, she is always very friendly. If only I was 20 years younger .................................. and single.




Or at least single.

Went out last night to meet some freinds for a surprise b-day party at a restaurant. The weather was looking iffy, so instead of my more casual Sidi Doha boots (which can almost pass for a sneaker) I wore the Armadas because they have better waterproofing. I usually wear overpants over whatever I'm wearing, which I'll take off and leave on the bike when I get to wherever I'm going, but I guess I didn't think about it enough before leaving the house (trying to get to the place before the 'surprise'), so I ended up standing at the bar in my calf-height boots and a pair of shorts. I get to talking to a girl that was there when she asks "Are those your golashes?".

I guess I can't really blame her... I did feel somewhat silly...

In my day, galoshes were also called rubbers. I guess she didn't want to go there, huh?

Friday is dress-up day, so naturally I wear my leathers to work... A consultant wanders in and asks..

"Does that help you ride or something?"

No, it just makes me look fast.

I somewhat resemble that. I have the mivivan, 3 kids, and an awesome wife.

I also had the Hayabusa. Sold it with 150k on the clock.

Now I have a z1000.

So are you saying because I may be spending time with the family I'm not allowed to talk to a fellow rider?

You have to dress up on Fridays? What kind off ass backwards company do you work for? What happened to casual Fridays?

We had a dress-up day ("Dress for Success") last friday, some overseas visitors in the office.

Most of the time we're jeans, tshirts, barefeet in the summer... pretty casual.

Sorry, I had my German sense of humor turned on. Friday is a sort of personal style day - so usually fancy jeans and cowboy boots or such for me, no ties and/or patterned shirts for the guys. So everyone usually looks a lot nicer on Friday than the rest of the week, when we are all bundled up in suits.

His dad was a mechanic, and all the tow trucks they owned in the garage were GMC's.

His dad told him that GMC stood for "Great Mountain Climbers".

He got pretty pissed when I argued the point with him, as his dad was more than qualified to know what GMC meant.

I can still remember the look on his dad's face (trying to keep a straight face as my dad stood behind me probably trying not to laugh too) as we discussed the issue, and how fighting was wrong, after the next cub scout meeting.
