Top reason's people don't wave at me...

1. I am so small compared to my bikes that it usually appears as if a bike is just going down the road on its own.
2. My bike looks more like a transformer than a motorcycle and they're not sure what the proper etiquette is for a guy riding a robot down Metro Parkway.
3. I'm usually riding at mach 1.2, so by the time they get their hand off the grip, I'm already gone. The shock wave hits them a couple seconds later.
4. Half the time I'm riding with Monica so guys are too occupied with checking her out to remember to wave. It's funny to watch them ride out of their lane.
5. That's all I can come up with for now...

6. They see your abnormally large elbows and are scared to death.
7. They see Monica and are to confused as to how you jedi mind tricked her into being with you.

Well the best reason I can think of for not waving down there in the city is the fact that you are squeezing your clutch because you are always sitting at a red light. When I'm down there I spend more time stopping then actually riding.

Reason to not wave at Chef at a light:

1. He can't find neutral. ;)

04-30-2009, 09:48 AM
Neutral, what is that? I'm always waiting and watching for that green light so I can go like hell. Remember between my house and work which is 15 miles there is 5 lights. Another reason why I love it up here.
First one away from the light wins!!!!

04-30-2009, 10:50 AM
I love it up there too. I'm putting the ex wife up on Craigslist. Hey, isn't your birthday tomorrow?

04-30-2009, 11:06 AM
Yup, 41 yrs old. I'm tied down all weekend and not in a good way. The following weekend a guy from the 109 forum that lives in the UP might be coming down this way. If we can time it right I'll take him to the back roads. Yesterdays ride was priceless. My buddy got his Suzuki Intruder up to 105mph. He said that's all it had. 1400cc's with a 4 speed transmission. He was bummed that's all it had but I reminded him that when they built the national speed limit was 55, I think. That's all they needed. I don't know how I know he was going that fast because we all know I would NEEEVER drive that fast. I didn't have the heart to tell him that I was in third gear when I wasn't following behind him.

I don't know why people in MI dont wave like in Florida... haters...

Anyway... I am becoming like my buddy Serp... he doesn't wave anymore...
