Cry Worst Thing About Riding A Motorcycle

For me, it's new.

I roll up and the women, oh yes, they are staring. Then I take off my helmet and the look of disappointment is unbearable for me to behold.

The worst

How 'bout you? I should just wear an open face helmet. That way they will know not to expect Tom Cruise from the beginning.



I mean you gotta love a guy with a sexy "bike wave" like that, right?

meh

Tranny

The worst thing is having a tranny on the back you thought was a girl rubbing your package.

The worst thing, for me, about riding a motorcycle is the constant paranoia regarding other drivers: Do they see me? Do they see me? Do they see me?

my serious answer is the gear. I won't ride without it and just running in to the store and back out is a pain.

The worst for me could also be hearing some comment about it being cold or "I bet the air conditioner is working today, kee kee" I swear I am about to punch someone in the mouth over this.


Also...what is Tom riding there. looks like a custom Harley of some sort, crazy headlight.

I have a cure for this, if you ride in the middle of the road, not the middle of the lane, but the real middle of the road, tell me who doesn't see a bike in the middle of the road?

Pretty sure that's a Confederate Hellcat.

And for the record, there is A/C for bikes. Look p Entrosys, and I think one or two of the big tourers now have it as a factory options.

There is no worst thing about riding a motorcycle. Some motorcycle things are just better than others.

Sorta like there are no bad BJs

All along I thought that look of disappointment was from the sight of my wedding ring.
