you're in LA - who gives a crap what they think. They are just looking for a meal ticket anyways. The best way to deal with anyone like that is completely ignore them.
Plus Tom Cruise is like 5'2. ive seen him on his Desmosidici - he can hardly touch

Having to sit in a cloth covered box all day dealing with BS and idiots when the weather is a perfect 60 degrees and there's not a cloud in the sky for 500 miles. That just sucks.

A close second is having to sit in a cloth covered box all day dealing with BS and idiots when the weather is even marginally decent. That just sucks.

Girls don't look at me even when I'm wearing my full face helmet.

A 46hp quad is better for getting attention than a 170hp bike.

That's sad.

Changing the mood a little but

Hearing people say " So and so died out riding the other day."

It can happen with any vehicle, but commenting in a way to make us feel guilty by association sucks.

When did you buy an Aprilia? 'Cause that overweight turd of a Honda damn sure doesn't make 170HP.

Worst thing??? Sore butt after 10 hrs on the road. Similar to the sore butt I get when sitting in front of the computer or TV for a couple hours.

OK, maybe I am alone on this. I have been riding 35 years and have had very few women seem to be particularly impressed with me on a bike. I am not good looking, but am not horribly misshapen or anything that would be obvious while I am in gear. I have all my limbs and am height/weight proportionate. I always wear a full face helmet, so it can't be my big nose or weak chin. My posture is not the best, but not that bad. I usually have pretty nice bikes - I don't even ride a KLR! In every day life I don't have too many women look my way, so when one does I notice it. Except for a bus load of women prisoners I passed that went nuts over me, I can't say anyone has had a positive reaction. Mostly I get the sense that women are scared of me when I am in gear. Maybe I need to learn to smile more...

hm, i get female attention when i'm the gladius (YES THE GLADIUS) or the beamer. i'm in good shape, but my face could be safely exchanged for a dog's shaved ass without attracting surprise. i suspect a 'stich would probably drive them away again...

when i'm on the vespa, i get called names. :-( well, the neighborhood brats love it and beg for rides.
