I was impressed today. I had a coworker ask the usual, "aren't you hot in that?" And when I asked if she'd seen road rash she responded with a grimace and said, "I guess you're right. It's better to just grin and bear it."

She even understood the idea of ventilation and sweating a little vs. dehydrating and overheating in 100+ degree heat from riding without a jacket for long distances once I explained it to her.

I was impressed.

The correct response was "why thank you, [blush]"

Lol. I would have but I don't want to lead her on... and she doesn't seem to need much help.

She's a cool chick but we have too many common friends so that'd just turn to drama. Plus I'm married and might get killed in my sleep.

Not particularly. Maybe 50 years ago though. She's a 70 year old grandmother.

walked up to the counter at the dealership. Girl looks up at me in my jacket and holding my helmet. "Oh, did you ride here?"


No. I walked. Duh.

Placed an order of hot cakes at Mcnastys, was asked "is that for here or to go?" with my helmet and gloves laying in the counter...

I guess I could have been taking it home in the top box, IF I HAD ONE!!!

It was a legitimate question. You could have been experimenting for the jolly rancher thread.

In a parking lot. This dude stopped, watched me put the bike on the kick stand and take off my helmet and gloves. Then he asked if I was leaving. Really?

I get it to go all the time and I don't have a top box, just a net. I even get one of thosw cardboard drink holders and get a large sweet tea that I hold upright with the tension of the net and then I go to work, which is close.

I pick up large and extra-large pizzas all the time with my DR650. No top box. All I have is a rope on the back, wrapped around the rear grab handles, that I undo to tie over the pizza box.

I used to pick up McDonald's breakfasts all the time on my other bike as well. most times I'd do the drive-through, but occasionally I'd go inside. I'd have to turn the bike off at the drive through speaker/microphone so I could hear them, and so that they could hear me.

To go while on a bike? All the time.

I've picked up Cuban take-out on the bike and strapped it down on the back, but the sauce from the Ropa Veja sometimes leaks out of the Styrofoam box they put it in.

Chinese food boxes would be much easier, and most chain fast food is easy to take to go (well, maybe not with the 32oz drink...).

I have had restaurants assume I was eating in lots of time when I was carrying out. I would much rather be asked first rather than have to have them put it into a to go container after.

I have put fountain drinks in the long pocket of my aerostich, just drink a bit before putting it in the pocket. Usually I put stuff just for me in my tank bag but I have gotten pretty creative with large pizzas and other big stuff.
